My Mission & Purpose: Though Embraced By The Light chronicles my near-death experience and amazing journey into the spirit world, its main purpose is to reach hurting souls and bring greater hope & quality to life, give comfort through hardship & loss of loved ones—and to help establish direction through daily living. However, perhaps more important than anything else—its purpose is to bring to its reader the powerful message of God's unconditional and eternal love for them and the message “Above all else, love one another.”
“Compelling and infinitely reassuring, Betty's vivid account of the afterlife will give you
of the peace and unconditional love that await us all.”
There is beauty, peace and joy in all we accomplish for God! Blessing our loved ones by doing acts of kindness pleases our Heavenly Father. I love Christ's words, "Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me." (Matthew 25:40)
Memorial Day weekend is a busy time for me and my family. I start by gathering flowers for several graves: I have two brother's, my father and Joe's brother, Tom, who have all "graduated" and past away from this world moving on to their heavenly home. I miss them so much! Yet I know they are now in a place of beauty and love. I like to honor my memory of them by visiting their graves which are in driving distance of where I live.
Additionally, this will be the fifth year of visiting my husband Joe's grave which has become a family tradition. Joe so loved our beautiful garden and he loved sitting on the porch and looking out at the colorful trees and flowers, especially this time of year when everything is in bloom. Though he is now in spirit with loved ones dear in heaven, it seems especially appropriate to lovingly honor him with flowers from my garden at his grave.
Memorial Day is a time of family gatherings, picnics, parades and wonderful celebrations since it is the first holiday of the year when the weather fosters such events. Many families have the tradition of remembering their loved ones who have past on by visiting their graves, caring for the gravesite and leaving flowers. I encourage this tradition because it can be a time to remember our loved ones and ponder their life in our heavenly home, yet remember their ongoing connection to us and love for us. It can be a reminder that bonds formed in heaven, those of our families and loved ones dear—are unending, they never break and they never die. Death cannot part our love which extends into the eternities!
An American holiday, Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May to honor men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally it was known as Decoration Day which began in the years following the Civil War. Today we celebrate this holiday as Memorial Day which became an official federal holiday in 1971.
Though this holiday weekend tends to herald the beginning of summer, it is also a time of gratitude for God's blessings upon us as we think of our wonderful country and those who gave their lives to foster and protect our way of life and national heritage. A wonderful activity to add to your list for your family this weekend, might be to gather at some point in family prayer to thank God for departed loved ones dear and the love shared, as well as thanking God for our service men and women, the sacrifice they gave and their families and loved ones left behind. We can pray for their comfort and hold our country in prayer for God's will and blessings.
God bless you and may you have a rich, joyous and wonderful Memorial Day weekend and holiday!
With all my love, Betty
Near Death Experiences
Roy Mills Remembers His Pre-birth Life in Heaven
From an interview with Roy Mills about his book The Soul's Remembrance
I feel like I got one foot in heaven and one foot on earth, and I try to use all my memories to help everybody I can to encourage them and uplift them and help them through this world and try to let them know that, you know this earth ain't all their is. Where I was at was very bright within the buildings. And outside the buildings it was just rolling green pastures with beautiful gardens and flowing springs. You just completely bathe in love and it just is beyond earthly words to describe. It's much than even the love from your Mom. It's just a place of perfect peace and tranquility.
You can only experience so much in heaven. Everything that is positive is in heaven. We grow from all things, negative and positive, and negative stuff don't exist in heaven, we had to come down to earth and experience these things.
And we understood that we couldn't grow but just so far in heaven, and we had to experience the total negative and positive part for our spirit to really develop, for understanding and grow in spiritual knowledge and to return back to heaven with this knowledge and understanding.
We spent a lot of our time associating together and bonding in heaven. My Children, I spent a lot of time with my children and an awful lot if time with my friends. I knew that I was going to go through some real rough times in my early childhood. We had planned it all and did it all right in heaven. Everything was planned out before we came to earth.
I met Mary, Mother of Jesus, and I describe this in detail in my book. No matter what I wrote, it is very inadequate to cover the supreme love that she projected out to me and the feeling I had. Words just cannot describe it.
I also got a chance and met Jesus. Now again, words fail to describe it, even though I wrote about it extensively in my chapters in my book.
And also I met God himself. That to me is the pinnacle of heaven and is the most exciting of all the chapters to me is when I met God, himself. Most everyone else did too who entered the world and we received our missions. And I asked for this mission that I brought to earth. I asked him if I could bring this mission to earth of pre-birth memories. And he granted it to me, but we are all given missions to fulfill.
Also, when we choose our missions we choose roadblocks. I refer to them as roadblocks, is things we put in our path. If we stray off our mission, it is things that are happening in our life to put us right back on the right path. You see this quite often throughout your life where people who've had tragedy in their life and all of a sudden they find themselves back in the arms of God again.
My chain of conscious thought has never ceased from the time I was created to now. I very well remember coming out of heaven. There was an angel that brought me down to earth and took me to my mother. This angel put me, took me within about 3 or 4 feet of my mother and gave me a gentle push or glide and instantly I was inside my fetal body, was inside my mother. Well I was wondering, I wasn't on earth and I wasn't in heaven anymore, where was I at? But also I found out that once I entered this fetal body, it had abilities, it had profound thought.
It was warm, I was real warm, I was real comfortable where I was at. I knew everything she knew. I could think the same thoughts that she thought, I knew. I could feel her emotions, hear what she heard and see what she saw if I wanted too. I could look through her eyes, I could feel anything, it was just like she and I was one.
I could still communicate with the angels that was in the heaven, my angel guide. In the last days in heaven before I came to earth, this angel started using my mother's voice and I asked her. I said, "Well why are you doing that for?" And she said, "This helps. The reason I'm using your mother's voice is so you will know your mother's voice when you are born, you'll be used to it."
The greatest thing you can do is complete a mission given by God. Where you can stand in front of God and say, "I have completed my mission."
I know what's there and I know what awaits me there. And so I feel that I can best serve God by completing my mission here and helping as many people on this earth as I can, point the way back to God through Jesus. So, wherever he sends me, I will go!
How Can We Improve Our Ability to Connect with Family and Friends?
Dearest Betty, Thank you for coming back to earth and for sharing what you were taught in heaven and about the importance of our relationships with family and loved ones. Yet technology seems to be taking over and often gets in the way. Do you have any insight on how to deal with this?
“God began to place in my life people who carried spiritual energy that could sustain me along the way. I had been shown during my experience that we draw energy from each other—some people we receive energy from and some draw energy from us—in a constant exchange.”—The Awakening Heart, page 102
Often we feel overwhelmed by the multitude of distractions in this world of technology and find ourselves turning to computers for everything—excluding more and more time with the essence of human touch and authentic communication with our fellow man. We turn to easy access in our communications, texting or leaving a comment on a facebook page and then sometimes get interrupted and forget to answer all together. These new technologies are a blessing that we want to take full advantage of and use to our fullest benefit, however, they are no replacement for the touch of a hand, a soft kiss on a cheek, a loving embrace or even the vibrant connection we often feel at hearing a dear one's voice.
When we make the time to give quality attention to our loved ones, energy penetrates as it flows from one person to another, opening the way for our spirit to expand and become strengthened, not unlike our relationship with our Heavenly Father through prayer, which is our personal touch with him. Our personal, physical connection, one-on-one with each other, is invaluable when it comes to our children. As parents, we never know when a child or loved one may need our help, and when that time comes, we want them to know they can come to us and express their heart and thoughts while being able to listen and be receptive too. This takes practice, it takes nurturing a physical and emotional connection. It takes more than a text message or facebook post. As we spend less and less time with our children, mobile devices and other computerized technology, become the child's focus, the child's educator, the child's emotional attachment—and they become addicted. It takes genuine effort spent on connecting one-on-one and as a family, through quality time spent together and gestures of love.
Our gestures of love are like deeds of faith. The Bible tells us that "Faith without works is dead." From our thoughts and desires, seeds are planted. We nurture these seeds with our deeds, our loving actions: a kind word, a reassuring smile, giving of ourselves.
While in the spirit world, I saw that God is Love and Love is giving! Our goal should always be "to have the mind of Christ." And our actions should reflect his loving essence, always! To be Christ like is to set the greatest example of all! We can be confident that as we lend our energy and prayers for others, our growth and direction are connected to a higher plan.
Take the time to build and nurture your bonds with family and loved ones. Put your best foot forward for the strangers that come in and out of your life. Be that example of compassion and kindness for others that will teach your children well. Truly communicate with your loved ones and especially connect with God. Sometimes the most effective lesson for our children is when they listen to us earnestly and lovingly talk to our Heavenly Father.
In summary, fill your life with uplifting words in your physical communication with your children. Do not allow their influence to be left up to the world and its devices. God is well pleased with our commitment to raising our children under his guidance within our individual families. And when our children are grown, we will feel the reward of our efforts many times increased as those loving ripples from our children come back to bless us many fold!

Strengthening Our Families ...my Mother's Day note from May
My Dearest Friends,
I wish all mothers a Happy Mother's Day!
It is a blessing for me to acknowledge the women of today, who as mothers and nurturers, honor their role as laid out for them by our Heavenly Father. As mothers, when aligned to the perfect blueprint of God, we become gifted nurturers, matriarchs and the heart of the home. Mothers are in the most advantageous position to make a sacred difference in the lives of their children, as are the dads who are left behind should the mother pass away, because the father then becomes the heart of the home and thus the home's nurturer and care giver. It is comforting to know that our mothers who have left this world and moved on to the the after-life are aware of us, love us and care for us still. Children hunger for the love they once experienced while in heaven and they look to their mothers for that love . . . and we are blessed to give them what they need! Love is the most vital emotion for all of us, and even more so for our children. They especially need love, and when given in abundance, they thrive to grow into emotionally sound adults.
As co-creators with God, our precious world can also use our "Mother's Prayers," —especially today.“the purest prayers because of their intense desire and, at times, sense of desperation…” Embraced By The Light, page 104
When I was in heaven, I was told that inspiration comes not only from God, but from nurturers and caregivers, as well. More and more today that loving nurturer is a father or other family member. Many children today are being raised by grandmothers and fathers, who also have the ability to implore God mightily for those they care for. As women and nurturers, attuned to God, we can turn quickly to him. Let us use our strength and turn to God in prayer for our children, those we care for, society and for our world. Prayer is the greatest tool we have been given, and when we add the desires of our hearts with our love—it is the greatest force in this world! Our Heavenly Father promised us that he would not intervene in our mortal lives unless we ask for his help. And we can invite his help as as we pray for our concerns and pray for our loved ones. I love the scripture “Pray for one another that you may be healed…” (James 5:16)
Women, we are amazingly close to our Father in Heaven and perfectly created by him. We can help bless our world when we strengthen the eternal bonds within our own families. We can also strengthen our world by sending out ripples of Christ-like energy and love to all. Women; whether you are a mother of children or not, you were created and placed in the world as healers and nurturers, please join me in prayer for our youth, for our families and for our world.
Dearest Heavenly Father, Thank you for your wisdom and love and for blessing us with your presence when we come to you in prayer. Bless and strengthen each mother and nurturer on earth, guide them in wisdom to give the best to their family and children, that they might be honored and called blessed. May we each respect our honored place with you and feel our eternal bonds of love for one another in a greater way. Bless our children with greater understanding, love and trust, that their hearts might turn to their parents for guidance—just as you would lovingly have us turn to you. Father, guide us in all that we do. I pray in the precious name of Jesus, amen.
With all my love, Betty
God bless you and thank you for coming here.
May you feel the Spirit of God within every page
And know that he loves you unconditionally
He will never forsake you.
I first met Prince shortly after my book, Embrace By The Light, was published. He told me that he had been profoundly impacted and inspired by its message of hope and unconditional love, and that he wanted to meet me…
I was told that our prayers can benefit both spiritual beings as well as persons on the earth. If there is reason to fear for a departed person’s spirit, if there is reason to believe their transition may be difficult or unwanted, we can pray for them and enlist spiritual help. —Embraced By The Light - page 84
For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers… Romans 1:9
Father, your blessing of power in my thoughts and words are so great that when I speak them in prayer, they reach you in heaven. This gift is powerful in blessing my loved ones both here and there with you. Thank you for gifting me with creative energy and teaching me to use it in my prayers.
Affirmation: My prayers for others reach into heaven and touch the lives of even the spirits there.
“Today is the day the Lord hath created, I will rejoice and be glad in it”
As we learn to Praise God in all things, even through our trials, even through our struggles—we will find our trust in God grow stronger. We will begin to feel a peace that passes understanding and is not of this world. And we will find a greater alignment with God that grows our confidence in our ability to follow his direction in our daily lives. "Be in the world but not of it" is a challenge common to all of us and learning to Praise God in all things can help us meet this goal.
This short podcast (25 minutes) will inspire you toward greater faith and closeness to God.
