About the Book:

I strongly believe that certain paths I've taken in my life were subject to spiritual influences.

I am absolutely convinced I have been helped along the way; taken off one path and directed onto another. Maybe, as everyone tells me, the path I am on now is the end result of these interventions.

Why? I'm not sure.
