I send you greetings of peace and love from the rest of the family. They, like I, are always with you and never leave or forsake you. The angels and the rest of us want you to know how precious you are to us.

When I agreed to give up my divinity and be born in the flesh, I did so very willingly. I looked forward to the time when we, you and us, could all be together and share in everything that is. I looked forward to loving you, hugging you, comforting you and encouraging you so that, when your life gets tough, you will feel secure and supported enough to face whatever you have to face. I looked forward to being the one you could rely upon unconditionally for that strength, comfort and encouragement whenever and however you need it.

Not only that, I looked forward to sharing with you that we created you to love you, and that we so hoped and desired that you would love us back. We want you in our life, and we love it when you want us in yours. It was so exciting when I could turn to my disciples and expand our relationship to include friendship and true fellowship. I offer that friendship and fellowship to you today as well, and I look forward to your inviting me into your life in that way.

You can see there are many reasons why I came in the flesh so many years ago. There’s more! I also wanted to set you free from thoughts and behaviors that hurt you emotionally and spiritually. If you were hurt by people or experienced hard times in your life and lost things like your health, relationships, or your way of life because of disaster or unemployment, I wanted to give you the tips and tools as well as the encouragement to recover emotionally and spiritually from who or what hurt you so you could have the kind of life I want you to enjoy.

Most of you understand why I sacrificed my life for you and what an act of love that was. It is my hope that this letter will help you understand how very much more my life and ministry were to accomplish. I look forward to expanding our relationship now and forever.

Joyfully, Jesus

Hi! Isn't it amazing how illness or disability open up other opportunities in life? I know of what I write, since I live with both chronic illness and disability. And, yes my life has moved forward powerfully in spite of what I can't do, and I am constantly amazed at what I can accomplish still! Looks like the same is true for you as well.

Thank you for becoming my "friend". I agree about taking care of one's health when young. I didn't either. It's just as important (moreso, actually) when one becomes older. Thank you for your comments. When I speak, I combine the two books as one can't disconnect the two ~ body and mind are actually one and using the playbook along with the smoothie book will enhance anyone's health across the board.

Be well and blessings to you and yours,

oh and yes... please do send something for the book and a little bio to go with it (just a couple sentences maybe!) THANKS Meghan Wier

Hi Mike -- Thanks for the comment -- yes Charlotte is in North Carolina-- although I live right on he border so I technically live in South Carolina! But that is enough geography! Your career and book sounds facinating -- I went into Theatre myself, and if it hadn't been for an injury I am sure I would have been working "in the wings" myself (I was a stage-hand/carpenter!)
As far as my book, I define introvert as someone whose energy is pulled out by interactions with others -- an extrovert as someone who gains energy from others. In that way introversion and shyness are different. I am not nearly as shy as I am introverted! I just need time to "recharge" after dealing with a lot of people!
Best of luck to you. - Meghan Wier

Hi Tina, Great to hear from you.
Yes it is strange how one conjures up an image of what a particular place is like. I would imagine Wyoming is extremely beautiful and a wonderful place from which to draw inspiration. Yes I know the American Air Base you speak of, in fact I have put some acts on there in times gone by, not sure if it's still there though. There is another, Mildenhall, which is roughly in the same area. Peoples perceptions are often strange. I live quite close to Stratford-on- Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. It is so quaint and has kept a lot of its appeal, but so many people think that the residents still go around writing with quill pens! I have to admit that seeing shiny Mercs or BMW's parked outside the buildings does look somewhat out of place though. I will be updating my page when I get a chance, but if you would like to see a bit more of my book, Terry has created a link to my webpage at my Publisher : Wasn't that kind of him? It does work, I've tried it.
Anyway, lovely to chat with you. Speak again soon.

Hello Mike,

Your book looks interesting. As a thought for you to consider, rather than send people to your publisher (Trafford) and have them search for your book (something few people will tend to do), send them to your specific page on the publisher site--if that is where you want them to buy the book. Create a short cut URL that takes them right there. I used and created this shortcut for you: and if you try it, it will take people immediately to your page. Or better yet, go to and register (free) and start creating your own five letter abbreviations to take people to your page. Hope that helps. Keep up the good work. There is a lot to learn about book promotion and I learn new things all the time.

Hey Mike, nice to meet you. I find this an interesting place-it is good to connect with others. Hard to spend a lot of time with too much chat-after all, as an author the goal is to sell your books and to get your message out there, if you have one. I belong to another group, NothingBinding whose gaol is to connect author and reader-I guess you really need to do both-you never know who you may run into. Take to you later.

Hi Michael,
You're not late in replying to me since I just joined this afternoon. Someone at myspace told me about this network, which is really great.
If you'd like to do some cross-promotion, I also have a network set up called Book Place at
We could use some good non-fiction writers as members.

Hi Judi,
How nice to hear from you. Excuse my ignorance, but is SC - South Carolina? So you run an Advertising Agency eh, that is a talent in itself. I've written some copy myself way back, and it is an aquired gift! Yes I'm hoping my book will go well, it is unique in its concept and, so far as I am aware, I am the first person from the entertainment business to 'spill the beans' about what makes it tick. Entertainment Agents are a strange breed and keep everything to themselves, there is very little sharing of knowledge, the only thing they keep closer to their chest is their skin!
Obviously this is a new site for me, so any guidelines or useful info would be most appreciated.
Take care. Speak soon. Mike

Welcome to this network, Michael! Your story sounds great and I love your book concept -- unlike you, I have no talent within the entertaining industry (i'm more like 'Lucy Ricardo...) but was an art director for MTV way back and reading your bio brought back a lot of memories only I've never got over the late night burning the midnight oil thing... my clock just won't adjust -- I wish you the very best with your book and God bless you for beating the cancer!
