My main is a resto shaman, Naxx geared. I recently got my holy pally to 80 so I've been dealing with a similar situation, but I find certain heroics are easy for some healers and hard for others.
The ones you want to hit are Nexus and Stratholme. Nexus for the mace, and Strat because it's cake (and there's a decent blue healing mace on boss #2 that will suffice if the epic one from nexus doesn't drop).
Make sure you have a real tank. With my scrub pally, I was able to take a low-geared tank (pally with only 19k life) through Heroic Nexus with only 2 wipes (one on trash, one on Keristrasza), but then TONS of wipes when we tried Draktharon.
A) you can do Heroics IF you have a good tank. A newbie tank will make for tough runs.
B) Spend an hour with water breathing in Borean Tundra collecting Winterfin Clams. Get 100 and buy a Siren's Tear. It's the expensive part of a Wispcloak
. That will be great for you. Gather the mats and offer 25 gold or something and get it made. Will last you a long time. Leggings are okay for now. The Rock boss in Nexus drops awesome mail healing legs, get those. The one thing you're lacking is Mana pool. Get some stuff enchanted.
Also, your weapon... Get the Kaluak revered mace. You're really close to revered, you probably haven't done some of their quests. Get a BC +30 INT enchant thrown on that, 25 INT on your shield, 16 INT on your bracers, and 250 mana on your chest. Those are all fairly low material cost.
C) Nexus and UK are good starters. VH can be tricky. If you get the voidwalker boss, and people don't know to kill the void sentries, you're toast, so I don't normally recommend it, even though it has the potential to be easy.
edit: Also, run yourself to Grizzly Hills. Do 3 of their daily quests to get 30 Venture Coins, that will net you http://www.wowhead.com/?item=38368
which is really good.
