This is the 2nd edition of Blessings in the Mire: A True Story of Miracles & Recollections, the first book written by award-winning, now international best-selling author, Jan Deelstra.
Beginning with the death of the author's son, Blessings in the Mire is a tapestry of fascinating, albeit sometimes heart-wrenching, often humorous, and frequently thought-provoking highlights from an unusually spirit-infused life. She takes us by the hand through the worst moment of her life, and transports us through the grief and out the other side of the healing and growth process by way of childhood, and by way of some very unique perspectives.
As the proprietor of a new aged "angel store" at the time of her son's death, Jan Deelstra, aka the "Angel Lady" has an inimitable vantage point for seeing the "blessings in the mire" of death, and for opening doors that are disguised behind dogma, or are guffawed as being non-existent. Her experiences of connecting with deceased and with breaking through religious barriers are un-paralleled. Perhaps even more importantly, she risks ridicule as she provides readers with her most personally intimate thoughts and actions....
Although crafted in memoir fashion, Blessings in the Mire is a compelling work of inspirational non-fiction for those who seek spiritual enlightenment through the experiences of others. Most particularly, this book strives to deliver answers to the tougher questions of life and death, of the possibilities of spirit guides and guardian angels, of concepts of time and space bending, of psychics and mediums, and perhaps most poignantly, of the real possibility of life after death beyond what we have previously imagined. It delivers a huge serving of hope for those grieving loss, and proof for those seeking more.... Purported to have "healing effects" by those who have read it, Blessings in the Mire is a must read for anyone who has lost a loved-one, most particularly, for mothers of children who have passed over. It is infused with celestial love that undoubtedly comes from the archangels themselves.
