My sweetheart died suddenly and unexpectedly on November 18, 1986. The shock shook me to my core and challenged everything I believed in up to that point. I thought my life was over ~ save for this inner voice shouting to me from somewhere inside my head, saying ~"This is not the end, Nancy...this is just the beginning!"
I prayed like crazy to somehow get through the ordeal alive and sober, and I cried out loud to that voice, "Heaven help me get through this pain and I promise I will help others so they don't have to suffer!"

Jerry and I celebrating my birthday
just a few weeks before he died.
One day between his death and the funeral, an AA pamphlet titled, "Grief, How to live with sorrow" flew off a shelf at me. In it I read..... "Ask for the grace to believe that somehow, some way, sometime your loss and the pain it brings will be turned into a blessing for yourself and others ... and have faith in the infinite wisdom and love and power ~ that there is a reason, a good reason, why this happened. Some day [God] will make it known to me; but until then, I will ask Him to sustain me.
Well worth the 35 cents I paid for it.
A bolt of lightning would have had the same affect. It was as though Heaven heard my cry for help and the angels came to my rescue! In the days that followed, things happened that were nothing short of miraculous and I am here to say it was the angels' wisdom and love and power that led me through the ravages of grief. It was by Grace that I was able to listen as the angels said, "Our work together could finally begin!"
After some time of teaching myself the inner listening process, I shared the exciting news of an angel speaking to me with a close friend, Joann Baumann, a holistic faith healer. I was surprised that she immediately asked the angels for help with some of her clients with whom she could not communicate to know the cause of their suffering. In an automatic-writing session, the angels would reveal the cause, and suggest how the person could heal. Joann would apply the suggestions during their healing session ~ and VOILA! she saw miracles happen! The beautiful stories she shared with me led me to publishing The Inner Voice so more people could be inspired and heal ... the fruition of my promise! Read The Inner Voice here.
I have done hundreds of readings over the past 35 years ~ in part inspired by the work of "the Sleeping Prophet" Edgar Cayce and using an automatic-writing technique I developed from some simple instructions by Author Ruth Montgomery. The readings have brought healing miracles and comfort to many, leading me to the conclusion that all things happen for a very good reason ~ just as that little pamphlet stated!
If you have something troubling you and you'd like to know what "the good reason why" is, I welcome you to Ask the Angels!
