Dear Grace, I attended your Queen’s University lecture at the living Arts Center earlier this evening, (I was one of the four ‘kids’ whose parents told us about your wonderful gift) and I have to tell you again that I thoroughly enjoyed being there and absorbing everything you said. I noticed even just walking out of there how much happier and higher I was than I had been before and I appreciate your abilty and courage to share such a wonderful, uplifting feeling with so many other people. Even at 20 years old I could relate to and/or understand everything that you touched on tonight and I find it very comforting to know that there are people like you in this world.

Hearing you speak last night and winning your book was no coincidence. You are a sign and a catalyst in my life, Grace. Over the last 4 weeks, I have been considering a career change. I have strong talents and a Midas touch. It is very difficult to display these talents because I encounter jealousy. Two days ago, I was crushed by hurtful feedback I got from a colleague. Last night, I read your book until 1 AM. I cried, kissed my children in their beds and snuggled next to my warm, loving husband. Today, I woke up with the sun, went for my daily jog and thought about the energy you communicated to me last night. Thank you for putting that warm “Cirocco” wind in my sail. (S.L. Ontario)

“Yesterday morning in not so quiet desperation, I googled spas and came across your retreat information…and then read exerpts from your Bridge book….the tears streamed down my face….clearly I need a spa for my spirit more than my body.

Etobicoke & Mississauga Chapters stores. WOW. I will be in touch.” (Cary S.)
“We came to hear you speak at Unity last Sunday. While you guided us through the meditation my husband, teenage son and I had the most amazing experience. The three of us had the exact same angel visit us in the garden, it was my husband’s step-Dad, who was truly an angel on this earth. He visited each one of us with a different message and filled our hearts with love. Later when we arrived home, my son, Murray, had a big bag of candies (skittles) and one of our dogs knocked it out of his hands and they fell all over his bed……. Murray screamed out to me “MOM you have to come and see this”….. the candies spelled out I – heart – U. It was one of those optical illusions that you don’t see right away, but when Murray pointed it out, then it appeared. He said it jumped right off the bed at him. We were all blown away by this, another message right after your session. You truly are a beacon for LOVE!!!! I truly believe God uses you to bridge love to those in need and those that have lost their way.. Thank you for Sunday.” I Love you. (Pennie, Mississauga, ON)
