From My Heart to Yours - A Message of Hope and a Plea
I have a heartfelt desire to make this book and its messages of hope and reasons for living available to those who want to help others and to those who are stressed, depressed, and/or suicidal. My personal knowledge and this burning desire have empowered me to keep on keeping on through more heart-breaking challenges than are written here. In 1998, I unexpectedly became a widow, and then had the growing experiences of surviving additional severe accidents, health problems, and the tragic deaths of my mother, four family members, and the loss of time and money from the surreal betrayal of false friends.
Nevertheless, I know that making it through problems can make you stronger. And even though with sadness tears spill down my cheeks, I have so much to thank God for when I count my eternal blessings. It is not what is gone that counts, but what is left and how I use it; not what I don't have, but what I do have.
There are many people who desperately need hope and to know that regardless of the difficulties in life, they can find joy and peace as I have now. In special need are those people who have given up and need encouragement to keep living day-to-day after the loss of loved ones or experienceing other catastrophes, such as losing their homes and all their possessions as I did to fire in 2006.
Insurance is inadequate for such a loss. My home of 34 years, and everything in it, was totally burned including my laptop computers, which I was using to add current-event comments and to reprint this book.
In spite of great financial losses and all of these terrible calamities, miraculous events have occured in my life. They have brought me more love, light, and enjoyment than I ever thought possible. I am truly blessed.
With sincere prayers to ease my grief and sorrow, my feelings of devastation were swept away as I became even more determined to help others gain inspiration to keep on keeping on through their challenges.
Please join me in my quest to share God's Heavenly Answers with those who may listen. We can strengthen ourselves, our families, and our communities. Donations are needed to help prevent stress, grief, abuse, violence, and suicide.
Suicide is increasing at alarming rates. Over the years, suicides for young people between the ages of 15 to 24 have increased by nearly 300%. It is the third leading cause of death for this age group. Thousands of adolescents take their lives every year. Approximately 50,000 to 100,000 attempt suicide, and between 200,000 and 300,000 (who will admit it) contemplate suicide. Recent statistics state that it is the sixth leading cause of death for 5 to 14 year-olds, and it is greatly increasing with the elderly. Many more people battle depression and need heavenly stress and grief relief, and to know that God is real and miracles can happen.
I re-emphasize that only God can ultimately judge and answer our questions about someone's suicidal actions. However, hundreds of people have reported that they changed their minds about wanting to die after hearing about my experience on the Other Side. Sharing my story as written in God's Heavenly Answers has proven to help people make it through their problems and rekindle their desire to live.
