It's never too late to turn one's life around and begin enjoying the blessings God has in mind for us! After years of terrible struggle, Robyn shares, "I moved in with my sister, began 12-Step programs and went back to church. I earnestly started to improve my life." After making new choices, Robyn has a profound yet sacred experience of being visited by her late mother and grandmother, and then being shown family and friends on the other-side celebrating her spiritual growth.
Standing in a place of wisdom and strength, we place our trust in God's will for each and every one of us—and make a conscious choice to seek our Heavenly Father's healing hands and loving direction in all that we do. Thus our spiritual foundation is solid and connects us to the divine help that is always available. This becomes especially evident in our family units where it is vital that our foundation be firm in God. As families lift to higher standards and principles based on values of faith and trust in our Creator—ripples are created that then join others sending waves of loving strength through our entire nation and on with others to bless our whole world!
I am an American; I love to celebrate America's birth! Yet we are all brothers and sisters around the world because we are spirit family who share this Earth together. As we awaken to who we really are, a child of God with an eternal spirit family, we feel greater concern for each other and our joined eternal lives—for the spiritual well-being and blessings of everyone.
Our ability to bless our world begins in our earthly homes with our immediate families. During this time of celebration, regardless of what country we call home, we can draw our families close and strengthen our eternal bonds of love. To do this, our foundation must be firm in God's ways and our connection to him be felt, that we might be loving support to those closest to us as they experience our loving example.
One of Christ's promises is that nothing from outside us can defile us, only that which comes from within our own heart. (See Mark 7:15 – 23) Let's be mindful of our words and deeds that go out from us and especially consider our little ones who are always learning from what we say and do. They look to us to form and internalize their own values and ideals and often are paying closer attention than we may realize. Where do we place our focus? Where do our interests lie? To what do we give our energy? What do our children see come out from our own heart? When it comes to our children, we are always teaching in some way.
In my June e-Newsletter, I shared how I was shown that we, as a nation, have moved away from our foundation in God. To correct this, we must begin in our homes with our families. During my near-death experience, I was shown that Satan would attempt to destroy families and that society would soon follow. I do feel it crucial that I share what I was shown in the spirit world about this potential fate, however, we are not without hope! We do not need to fall victim to Satan's plot to destroy our families! We can, by choice, return to higher standards of living—and draw our children with us through our loving example and parenting. As role models, we prepare them for society and the world. With our wisdom and trust in God, a foundation of loving confidence is imprinted on them, and thus their ability to meet any challenge is made steadfast.
My prayers are for each of us to be guided to a firm foundation in God that will direct our way as we shore up our families and discover new ways to give that quality time and unconditional love to our children that they are so in need of. As parents, our voices are heard by our Heavenly Father. As mothers, we have the ability to implore him mightily for our children! As families, the angels await our prayers so they can administer blessings already prepared by the loving Heavenly Father.
During this July 4th time of celebration, lets gather our families in thankfulness for our country and for each other!
Father in Heaven,
Thank you for this land of abundance and beauty. Thank you for this great nation founded on principles of righteousness. Many have fought and lost their lives that we might enjoy freedom today; their sacrifices and those of their families are not forgotten. Thank you for blessing us with forefathers who were determined and dedicated their lives to what they believed, that future generations might be blessed. Bless those men and women who give service in our armed forces today and their families to do well and thrive.
Place your Spirit upon our leadership and touch their hearts with the solutions that will end all strife and suffering. Bless the world leaders to be guided by your hand to make right choices that will enable your blessings to be poured upon all your children.
Father, bless all of us with greater thankfulness for this blessed land and to do our part in the choices we make. And may all other countries also see your hand in their lives and make right choices as well, that we might all live in love and gratitude for your many blessings. As we celebrate the birth of the United States of America, may we never forget that we are under your divine guidance!
Heavenly Father, may each of us and our families serve you and your purposes well, I pray in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, amen.
Heaven in all its glory could be summed up in one word: Christ. He is the light of creation, the joy of all life, and above all, the deepest love of our souls. To embrace him is to embrace the meaning of life and the eternal power of God. As long as I live I will never forget his embrace, and I will never cease sharing the wonder and magnificence of it with others. But here is the great secret, the great truth: we will all know him and feel his miraculous and healing love. Whatever our glory or mansion or mission, we will all embrace him and love him again.
And another secret: we can each experience a taste of his embrace by opening ourselves to his unconditional love and then by giving that love away to everyone we meet. The ripple effect, from its very source, is available to all who are willing to pass it along to others. Heaven can be anywhere.
I do not have words to describe the perfection of our heavenly home. No mortal language can convey the smells, sounds, colors, and emotions, nor transmit the love and joy pervading every heavenly creation. But a portion of heaven's experience is available to each of us. As we allow ourselves to believe in God and to accept his love, a quiet joy will rekindle our souls, a joy we will instantly want to share with others. And as we share it lovingly, that spark of joyful heaven will begin to swell within us, filling our entire souls. Then we will begin to discover the truth that heaven is everywhere we allow it to be, and it resides in us just as we once resided in it. Then, each of us will be blessed to know for ourselves, what words can never convey. —The Ripple Effect, pages 12-13
Divine Womanhood & Manhood - God's Perfect Design
With the loss of my husband and my "Rock," Joe…I felt gratitude for the strength of family bonds in a way I have never experienced before. Through this most painful time, we had the foundation of a strong family unit, devoted to God and to each other, that we could draw from and lean upon to carry us through our loss. I pray for all families to have such bonds of love, of devotion to one another, of compassion and understanding—with that firm foundation in God—that will not only endure, but shore each other up through every storm!
Intuitively we know that men's and women's roles compliment each other. In their purity, they are an ideal balance and the perfect design of a loving Heavenly Father. Yet we live in a time when these roles have become blurred and have moved away from what God intended. Due to our wandering from God being the core focus of our lives and not being obedient to his law of love, we now face consequences in a modern society that make it challenging to be the loving family unit which God intended from the beginning.
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;” (Ephesians 5:25) Yet in our broken society, women find themselves taking on the role of provider out of need and men becoming distracted from their families or even abandoning them—and the loving example of mother or father is missing. When this happens, the entire family is thrown out of balance. Often, both parents must work to make ends meet and the children are left with others, or worse, left alone to parent themselves without direction or feelings of love from either parent or family unit. This is an unfortunate result of our times that is causing harm to families—especially to children, and it will take the determination of parents to return to trust, faith and love for God, in order for families to be brought back to the balance that God intended for them.
While in the spirit world I was shown and taught the perfection of male and female roles, which we experience in heaven in a more perfect way than we do here on earth. In the spirit world, male and female roles are equal and they perfectly compliment each other. These divine roles are a perfect balance—and they are enjoyed by all! Here on earth our humanness creeps in along with the distractions of the world around us that have taken away from what true womanhood and manhood are divinely created to be.
Mothers are co-creator's with God and Mother Earth and have been given an extra dose of spiritual sensitivity. Women are blessed with greater gifts of the heart that assist them in their nurturing and influential role as established and blessed by God. A mother is a spiritual leader to her children, and her nurturing love is an essential part of God's divine plan for them and for her.
Men, like women, were divinely created to serve specific roles here on earth. In God's perfect wisdom and to serve his purposes, he blessed men with increased strength in their physicality, and gave them emotional strength to endure the heavy responsibility of providing the physical needs for their precious families. I have to wonder how heavily that responsibility must weigh upon a man's shoulders while in care of his wife and little ones!
Men are designed to be protectors and providers and specifically given a greater attunement to the physical, while women are more attuned to what is spiritual. A worldly perspective would take away the gifts intrinsic to both these roles. But when we hold to God's plan, we discover our gifts inherent to our role and step into a divine balance that our Heavenly Father intends to fill the needs of all his children. In God's perfect wisdom, he created woman to walk along side of man. Hand in hand, they walk together, joined in loving support of each other—and of each other's divine roles and gifts. They then create a solid foundation on which their children grow. This is God's perfect plan. And as we connect fully to our important role and responsibility, we will rise up to achieve our highest potential, which is a growth that leads into the eternities! . . . Where we will evolve higher still.
I want to express my appreciation for men who take the responsibility of their role seriously—fathers and grandfathers, brothers and sons, husbands and all the men in our lives—whose roles are vital to their families. Likewise, I want to express my appreciation for all women who lift themselves to meet God's will for them—mothers and grandmothers, daughters and sisters, wives and friends who lend female energy to all in their lives.
While in the spirit world, I was shown that it is actually the female energy that our world desperately needs today. I was told that it is the grandmothers, the women of wisdom, who will bring the healing needed to our world. I was shown that these women will come forward in greater numbers, to help nurture children missing parental love, to help guide the direction of our schools and communities, participating politically to change the course of our world and adding the love and concern for future generations that has been all but forgotten in the times we now live.
I pray for the strength of righteous men that will help open the way for women to come forward. I pray for the strength of righteous women who will be moved to discover their gifts and influence to be able to help affect the changes so needed.
I pray for all families to be lifted closer to God, that their eternal strength and bonds of love will be felt in a greater way. God uses what is and we must do the same. Many family situations are less than ideal as greater numbers of women find themselves a single head-of-household and many men do too. God is aware of your needs and will hold you close. I bear witness of this. With Joe gone from the head of our family, I miss the male energy and strength he brought so much! Yet, finding myself now the matriarch of our family, I have felt my Heavenly Father extra close and have clung to him to help me through every obstacle and challenge—especially the unforseen ones!
And I pray for all who are giving of themselves to lift the vibration of mankind, to make the world a better place for our families and mortal lives. May we live up to our covenants with our loved ones and keep the promises we made to God before coming here, I pray in Jesus' name, amen.
In his eternal love,
And God bless you!

Without order there is chaos...which we see all around us. Betty was shown the differing roles of men and women in heaven and how they work together to accomplish God's work of love and bring us joy.
Betty explains the scripture from Ephesians 23, "For the husband is the head of the wife..."
Single-parent families and all families' eternal bonds.
Families must return their focus to God to heal our society.

I Let Go of Congestive Forces in My Life
I had learned that one of the greatest skills we can acquire is the ability to let go. To achieve the balance we need, we must let go of the congestive forces in our lives, everything that is weighty or burdensome on our spirits. —The Awakening Heart - page 32
And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good. Thou wilt surely wear away…for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone. Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee… Exodus 18:17-19
Father, thank you for carrying my burdens when they become too heavy for me alone. Your love and understanding have seen me through many tough times. I am learning to recognize what I must discard from my past and am ready now to let go and be free of them. Continue to bless me with your strength and your peace, Father, I love you.
Affirmation: I counsel with my Heavenly Father, and his Spirit generates confidence and achievement in me.
Remembering without ceasing
your work of faith,
and labour of love,
and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ,
in the sight of God and our Father... Thessalonians 1:3
“When I think of the cross, rather than thinking of Christ's suffering, I like to imagine Jesus ascending in a grand burst of light with his majestic and radiant countenance...having completed his mission perfectly! —Triumphant over physical and spiritual death through the gift of infinite forgiveness made possible through his endless love for us and his perfect obedience to the Heavenly Father's will. What an example he is for us to follow! The Savior is our greatest teacher, mentor, counselor—and the best friend any of us can have!…”
