In 2003, my life changed in a big way. I became a believer in life after death. Luckily, I didn’t have a near-death experience, but I did receive an after-death communication from my mother who had died 17 years prior. It was simultaneously unbelievable yet believable because I just knew she was connecting with me from the afterlife. That was the start of my spiritual awakening and the beginning of an amazing journey that I never would’ve believed was possible.
I began to research after-death communications, or ADCs, and came across the book, “Hello from Heaven,” by Bill and Judy Guggenheim. I learned about the types of ADCs one might experience. I kept my heart and mind open to the possibilities and began to receive more and more ADCs from my mother. Then, I asked my father to show me signs, and he did! I even received ADCs from my pets!
In 2008, I attended a gallery event hosted by psychic medium, Lisa Williams. There were hundreds of people there, and I was one of the lucky ones who received a reading. Lisa brought my mom through and told me things only my mom would’ve known. It was an emotionally moving and life-changing experience which validated that my mom was still alive, but in a different way. At the end of the reading, Lisa told me that my mom appeared to me as a butterfly. That statement, along with numerous, subsequent butterfly sightings, were the inspiration for My Mommy Is a Butterfly.
A few months later, I attended a spiritual retreat where I learned about “angel numbers.” That discovery would lead me on a path of working with the angels. As the years went by, my continuous love and devotion to them developed a strong connection that rewarded me with many manuscripts for children’s books. Three of those manuscripts were poetry about angels. The first became my award-winning book, Angels, Angels, Everywhere. Most of the manuscripts lent themselves to children’s picture books so that’s how I chose to enter the literary marketplace.
In the years that followed, I became a certified angel intuitive and spiritual teacher, as well as a certified grief recovery specialist. Everything I was guided to study prepared me to fulfill my life purpose … to teach people about angels and to help heal their grief in a very unique way. I’m humbled and honored to be able to help children navigate through life’s challenges.
Wishing you love, light, and angel blessings,
