Over the years that followed, Betty spoke and wrote about her amazing experience--including the armies of angels she saw awaiting God's commands to help His people. And it seemed that everywhere she turned, she met others eager to tell her about their encounters with angelic beings.
This book is the culmination of that journey. Here you will discover biblical answers to questions such as: When do angels help us? What do protecting, rescuing and messenger angels actually do? Can angels intervene when we face temptation? And more.
Angels by My Side will help you understand God's purposes for these heavenly helpers in every area of your life. Be encouraged to trust in His loving care--for He truly has angels by your side.

BTNSBJAshland, Ky.Age: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Highly Recommend!!July 3, 2013BTNSBJAshland, Ky.Age: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Another book I read is a NON-fiction, called 'Angels by my Side' by Betty Malz, who had authored 10 books before her passing. This book recounts the true story of Betty herself, along w/many other stories about people who've had real-life encounters w/angels.
I found this book fascinating from the first chapter to the last, as Betty writes about these experiences. Betty, herself was declared dead for 28 minutes before returning to life. She begins by telling about what happened to her during those 28 minutes, in great detail about going up to Heaven and what all transpired while she was there. The yrs. following her encounter, she met many others who told her their amazing encounters w/angelic beings. Betty gives Biblical insight as to how these angels help humans in their time of need from the Bible's perspective.
If you want to know more about how God uses angels to help His children, then this is the perfect book for you! I highly recommend it!! Only 121 pgs. long, it is a very quick, but fascinating read!
Jani417MichiganAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Inspiring Angel Encounters and How they HappenJune 9, 2013Jani417MichiganAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In her inspiring book, Angels by my Side, Betty Malz shares her own experience of dying and being guided to Heaven by angel, seeing and communicating, then returning to her body 28 minutes after death. She includes accounts of others with a wide assortment of angel encounters and they are fascinating to read. Using Scripture, Malz explains how angels intercede, obeying commands from God. She believes that angel interventions may be prayed for, but these requests must be made directly to God rather than to angels. God alone can order angels to carry out His orders.
Angels fill many roles, including rescuer, messenger, protector, and intercessory. Numerous examples are provided in each category. Angels can step in to a situation to prevent temptation, block access to a wrong turn, guide and redirect us, or defuse a perilous situation. Malz warns readers about evil (fallen) angels and people who offer solace in false, yet appealing ways. Spiritual mediums and occultists can convince desperate people to believe in their deceptive practices, but true angels sent by God can and do rescue people from these situations.
Malz has written a very sincere accounting of angel deeds and miracles. Her ideas of the workings and methods of angel intervention seems quite valid. Although the book is short; only 121 pages, readers are well advised to take the time to reflect on each concept and chapter. Should readers believe all or part? As a very wise priest said "There are thousands of reasons not to believe, but only One reason to believe." Each reader will choose. All readers will find inspiration.
I received a copy of this book from Baker Publishing's Chosen Books to read and review. I am pleased to recommend it to adult and teenage readers who seek information about God's work in our lives through His angels.

I appreciated Betty's incites regarding angels. It is an interesting read and you don't come away from it with a feeling of angel worship. This is most important to me because there are books out there that encourage angel worship. Betty is objective and instructs people to worship God and not angels. It is satisfying, encouraging and affirming just to know that they are there and that God uses them in our lives. Betty provides many testimonials regarding angelic encounters. Some of them are a bit hard to believe but who am I to doubt what the hand of the Almighty can and will do for his children. I recommend this book if you are interested in angels. I received an electronic copy free from Chosen books to review.

I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
Review: Betty Malz dedicated this book to bring hope to the helpless and to offer help to the fearful, and she did so beautifully, as this is one of those books that permanently increases your faith.
This wonderful book is filled with many stories and personal accounts of the experiences that others have had with angels, including Betty herself. It is also packed full of Bible verses, encouragement, and answers many questions about the topic that the reader may have as well as practical application in Biblical context.
I found â€˜Angels by My Side: Stories and Glimpses of These Heavenly Helpers' to be a quick page-turner, but it was also one of those books that I just couldn't keep to myself. I brought it up in conversation, shared stories from it, and strongly recommend it to anyone who may have an interest in Angels in general or any of the following: When Angels Come, Protecting Angels, Rescuing Angels, Angels and Intercession, Messenger Angels, Angels and Temptation.
There are a plethora of stories and I really wish that I could share all of them here with you, but you will enjoy owning the book much more. (I liked this book so much that I am already planning to purchase it myself for my own library once my digital review copy expires.)
WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Great Overview of AngelsMay 1, 2013WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a good book for anyone looking to understand angels better. Betty Malz does a terrific job discussing the roles and purposes of angels through a variety of biblical examples, personal examples and also other real life experiences that others have had with angels.
In 1959, the author has a ruptured appendix and was filled with gangrene and is in critical condition. She is eventually declared dead at the hospital. She ascends to heaven and experiences the majesty of its surroundings, recognizes some people that she knows and takes in the beauty of it all. Her father says a one word simple prayer Jesus with a wish that she hadn't died and she is immediately transported back to earth__after being declared dead by the doctor for the past 28 minutes! Two days later she is released from the hospital with no visible signs of trauma to her body from the whole experience.
Surely there was a purpose to Betty's life. She was stillborn at birth, survived drinking poison thinking it was medicine, lived through the experience of a tornado that destroyed her home and more. I think God might have wanted her to explore the power that angels had in her life protecting her from all these situations and I think that's where the idea for this book was born.
Malz explains the role that angels play in answering prayers. "When we pray, angels battle for us to bring answers to our intercession for believers and nonbelievers alike." Malz states that there are three kinds of angel visitations: 1. When we sense at the time that an angel is with us, 2. When we realize later that an angel has come and 3. When we never do have any idea that an angel has come to us. She also touches on the fallen angels - the third of the angels that initially followed Satan and rebelled against God. (But they're far outnumbered since 2/3 of the angels stayed with God!) She cautions that we aren't to look to the angels for a solution or to build a relationship with the angels. Through our own relationship with God, the angels will come to minister and to serve us on God's behalf. The angels were created to serve and worship God, not to be worshipped themselves.
I received a free electronic copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my fair and unbiased review of this book.
