Bernie Siegel, M.D., introduced me to God's letters this week (June 2012). We have been
working on his next book together, The Art of Healing. One of the things I love about working with Bernie is that he works from the heart, and he follows his instincts. His instinct to share daily Heaven letters came at a time when I was grieving the change in a relationship and was trying to accept it with grace. Each day, God's letter says exactly what I need to hear.

Today I watched your interview video, and I was struck with God's message (from the intro to your book) that the words are extraneous - just be with Him – was all we needed to know. I'm crying as I write this because this is the message my heart has said, over and over again. These tears are joy tears, not sadness. Confirmation is a wonderful feeling.

I'm not sure why I wrote, except perhaps to say thank you for your faith to sit and be with God every day and do what you do. Heavenletters™ are powerful, moving, loving and truly of-God. I see why Bernie was happy to write the forward to your book.

In yesterday's letter, I loved the line: “What if your heart is a bridge so
that others can cross any distance?”
This really brings home to me the lesson of responsibility we all have to shine, not only for ourselves, but for each other. Light is meant to be a community of energy, not a solitary spark that fizzles and dies.

Bless you and may your life continue to shine from within.
