Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
As a life coach and employment counsellor, I've spent the last twelve years designing and facilitating government programs for clients in employment transition. Then came the day when I finally needed to listen to my soul's calling (and the requests of my clients!) to write my non-fiction book! So I took a leap of faith and left my "normal" corporate world of 9-5 in April 2007 in order to complete my manuscript. What a great decision with amazing results! The people I have met along my journey have been an inspirational part of my process.

"This Reality is Only An Option" is due for release in the New Year of 2008. Please see More details to follow! (When the book is released, more specifics will be added to my website.)

I've also just started up a new monthly newsletter and podcast, entitled "Inspiration and Illumination". If you'd like to take a peek, you can find a copy of September's at: .

I currently write from my home near Vancouver in BC, Canada, with my talented husband Rob, a musician and cruiseship music enteratainment agent .

You can also find me on Author Nation: and

Author Nation website

I recently discovered the Author Nation site: . This is affiliated with Infinity Publishing, but appears to be open to all. Another opportunity to network with authors!

The blessings we ask for this season
Aren't the kind that come wrapped with a bow;
We're asking for gifts from the heart,
Ones we need and never outgrow.
May we see in these bright decorations
With their colors and lights all aglow,
The beauty and wonder of life
That God's world was created to show.
Let the peace and goodwill of this season
Be feelings that we can extend
Far into the following year
To our neighbors, our family, and friends.
Most of all, may we always remember
To open our hearts every day and share all the love and the joy
In a special and meaningful way.

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 Brenda,
Just stopping by to say hello and looking forward to forming a great connection in a shared passion. Take care and speak with you soon.

Thank you for your kind words, and being my friend. There is still a stigma with suicide and people just don't want to talk about it in public.
Last weekend I had a booksigning, and people stopped and looked at the books, and went into the store to buy them at the register. I must have spoken to at least 25 older men about their grandchildren. Knowing that I may be helping them is such a wonderful reward.

I love your "This Reality is Only an Option." In my book, Angel's Dance, one of my poems is entitled, "I've Had It With Reality." I'm definitely interested in your newsletter. Good luck to you.

Yeah! I think I'll bring it over to this page as well because it's such an amazing way to connect us all into ONE thought of peace. Thanks for reminding me and thanks for meditating with the "peeps" of the world!
