About the Book

The book begins with my detailed experience when an angel escorted me to unearthly places after a serious car accident. I had previously thought heaven could not exist. Now I not only believe, but I know God exists.

The book also details what God did for me after this car accident. God took a self-serving, and very broken man and allowed me to become His. This book recounts the hurdles that God saw me through, such as the possibility that I could end up in a nursing home at 29 years of age. It was possible that I could never walk again. I was told that I might not recognize my wife and children, or even remember them. But, my God has never forsaken me. Now, not a day goes by that I do not say 'Thank you,' to the Lord above.

Walking with Angels is meant to encourage all to get their life straight with God. In addition to the accident, recovery, and rehabilitation, many of my revised focus, after-accident thoughts are captured throughout the book. One of which is:

I believe that if you can truly admit how blessed you are, and truly say that you are thankful with all of your being..... You are blessed beyond any blessings you can see, touch, or hold.

About the Author

I was born in 1960 in the town of Britton, in Northeastern South Dakota in the United States of America. After I graduated from High School in 1978, I furthered my education in Aberdeen, South Dakota. I have served in various positions in several hospitals since my graduation from college in 1982. Until 1998, I was in process of pursuing a master's degree. It was not until after the accident 10 years ago, detailed in this book, that I was finally able to put many aspects of my personal life 'together.' (My wife would never admit it, but at certain moments, I still am).

I have an outlook on life that I previously never had. Life is a gift from God. Since this accident, I have a deep appreciation of life, and of my family. Before, I never experienced the daily gratitude to the Lord above. But now I do--more appreciation than most can ever imagine. I need not be reminded that my life was almost taken away. I believe that if it had not been for my encounter with a special Angel, it would not have been possible for me to be here today. Now, I must get it right the second time. I hope not to disappoint the 'Master' again. I have also served on various church committees and treasurer of a 2000 member congregation. Before, this would not have happened.

I would like to give a special thank you to the editor of this book, Steve Heffernan. Steve is a friend who took my unstructured essays and took it upon himself to put these in some sort of readable order. I think he has done extremely well. A remarkable point I will share with you is that he was able to do this while battling multiple sclerosis (a.k.a. M. S.). Thank you, Steve!
