Tell us a little about yourself. I am 64 years old, married for 35 years to my Husband Steve. I am a Registered Nurse and have been actively involved in a healing ministry since the age of 17. I have worked ICU, CCU, Burn unit, Psych Nursing, Industrial nursing and much more. I have three sons and two grandchildren.
What was your motivation behind this project? At the age of 42, I was diagnosed with a muscle disease called Myasthenia Gravis. After being hospitalized on and off for 7-8 months, it was determined that I needed to have a Thymectomy to stop the progression of the disease. After surgery, I needed to have a blood transfusion. The nurse gave me the wrong blood and I went into full anaphylaxis - shock. I popped out of my body and floated right into the lap of Jesus.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope to spread the message that I was sent back to my body to state. "You have a purpose, God has sent you here for a reason. He wants you to know how much you are loved." Jesus wants you to stop blocking yourself from coming to Him. He said he has" Diving Mercy and can forgive even when we can't forgive ourselves Death is not the end, but the beginning. Death is not painful.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I saw souls that came to greet me because of a prayer I say daily for all those who have no one on earth to pray for them, I asked God to have divine mercy on these souls. They came to thank me. I walked in a heavenly Garden with Jesus. We spoke for hours about His suffering and how happy He was that I prayed to offer my suffering up to His Cross to be used for good. "All life has meaning". "Have no Fear". Union with God is the most sacred adventure of all. God uses everything that happens in our life for His purpose.

Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Neither life or death is to be feared. No situation, no person is insignificant in your life. In God's eyes, you are precious and your value is inestimable. God forgives all sins. He loves us even when we fail to love ourselves
