    Speaking at a Funeral Home- Why it feels Great

    Last week was pretty exciting! I was able to share my testimony at two funeral homes in Southern Indiana. It was a significant milestone to speak in a funeral home because that is the audience I assumed when God first led me to write a book and share my story. I knew my experience could be comforting to people grieving and/or facing terminal illnesses. But the thought of sharing my testimony (especially with grieving people) was intimidating. How do I even bring it up? Who am I to think I could comfort someone at a time when their heart is so broken? I had a life changing encounter, but how do…

    Why did I write this book?

    Last month I wrote a guest post for my good friend Marcy’s business blog. In it I explained why I authored my book, and I wanted to re-share it here: Although I was hesitant to do it, I decided to write a book about the events surrounding my sudden cardiac arrest because I was able to see how my testimony impacted other people. It was easy to see how my story could be relevant to people in specific circumstances surrounding death – such as providing comfort to a person who tragically lost a child, parent, or friend. I could tell them how supernaturally protected I was and that I did not experience…
