I am a Contributing Author!

Have you ever received a sign from the universe, a piece of divine guidance, or a seemingly commonplace message that helped  you steer your life in a better direction?

365 Soulful Messages:  The Right Guidance at the Right Time  is a collection of true stories from over 200 contributing authors with experiences ranging from the spiritual to the secular, from the subtle and nuanced to the dramatic and impossible to miss.

This book is written in the hopes that when someone picks it up, they can flip to any page and find a true-life story that will provide inspiration, insight, and encouragement to reflect upon the messages they have received in their own life.... and to be on the lookout for more!

What Others Are Saying


The Growing Soul

My Transformational Journey From Adversity to the Divine Within

The message that comes so beautifully in this book, is that there really are no mistakes.  It illustrates how our lives are meant for us to come into the circumstances that have the potential to open us in the deepest ways and the situations that are able to allow us to grow.

This book deserves a dozen more awards!  It is spectacular! The “higher consciousness” portions closing each chapter create incredible impact and make it easy for a reader to see beyond just the circumstances and follow your real path.   I am wowed!

Contributing Author to {An} Unsinkable Soul
This book is eminently readable – the pages seem to turn themselves.  The view from a higher consciousness at the end of each chapter is powerful and elevating and each step of the journey is riveting and profoundly touching.  What stands out and endures is an indelible love of God.  The pursuit of truth and divinity reminds me of the salmon who leaps and bounds upstream against the rapids, risking all to get to the goal and clinging to the absolute necessity of the mission.

“Many women believe secrecy is the price they must pay for the past.  The authors of Speaking Your Truth decided that secrecy is a prison.  By airing out the skeletons in their closets, they discover how different the truth is from what they were told.  And they learn to love and value themselves – no matter what.”
Author of Streetwise Spirituality: 28 Days to Inner Fitness and Everyday Enlightenment
“Facing these challenges would be daunting and overwhelming for some people, but these women manage with courage and dignity and without glossing over the difficulties to take us with them on their journeys to personal triumph.  A very moving book!”

“Thomas Merton, the renowned author and Trappist monk, once said: “We make ourselves real by telling the truth.”  By this standard, this is a book chock full of real women and two-hundred proof truth.  Sip slowly and be amazed.”
