Featured Spiritual Story:
Feathers from Heaven

In November of 2000, my brother was diagnosed with lung cancer in the final stages. My oldest sister, took on the responsibility of his care. Each weekend I would drive the 300 miles to give her a break by going to the grocery store and pharmacy and helped to take care of our brother.

One weekend, my sister in law told us that she would...

My Birthday Gift

Today is my birthday. Little did I know that God had bigger plans for me than I had for myself. The gift I received today was magical and I was blessed. I chose to listen and then obeyed the still small voice from with in. We truly are God's Angels.

Today is my birthday and what a great day I am going to have. I scheduled a vacation day today so I could spend the whole day doing things for myself. I have been thinking of this day for months, in fact I have been planning this day for months...

Spiritual Movie Review:
Golden Compass

Golden Compass 
The spiritual metaphors are rampant in this film about a little girl who, with the aid of a special device only she can use, can know the truth about any situation. The evil powers would love nothing more than to get their hands on this device, and as a result they try to control and manipulate the little girl.

There are messages both loud and clear as well as soft and subtle as a gentle breeze. You'll have to pay attention closely to catch them all. There's a little bit of action, lots of mystery and some very interesting characters who come together to find their own strength when it seems all has been lost.

Still, the energy of this movie felt a little bit dark and certainly is not an uplifting movie. If you're looking for inspiration, then you'll be like me in hoping that one of the next movies in the trilogy lightens things up a bit.

Spiritual Book Review:
Kiss of a Dolphin by Tom Tuohy

  Spiritual Book: Kiss of a Dolphin
This book will tug at your heartstrings, and just when you think it's tugged enough it tugs just a little bit more. This story is actually a compilation of stories leading up to creating the "Dreams for Kids" non-profit organization.

What started out helping children in the Chicago ghetto eventually became an organization giving to all disadvantaged kids, including the disabled. Just as importantly, this book is about all of the volunteers and the gifts that they receive as they help these kids live their dreams... dreams that many of them didn't think were even possible in this lifetime.

Reading this book begs the question: If some of these kids can accomplish what they have, not despite their disabilities, but because of them... what could everybody in this world accomplish with just a bit of help and a lot of heart?

Also note, all profits from the sale of this book go to supporting "Dreams for Kids."
