From the time she was a small child, Mary Ann Morgan has been able to communicate with what she calls "those on the other side."
As she grew older and her spiritual experiences continued to unfold, Morgan realized she was put on this earth for a reason. She realized that the gifts she was given were to be used for a very specific purpose. She was taught that every human life is precious and holds special meaning. Contrary to what many people may believe, life is not a random accident without purpose and meaning. All life is sacred and plays a part in the Grand Design.
In 2001, she established the Mary Ann Morgan Charities Program*, a unique public service dedicated to bringing funds and resources to already established institutions that are constantly struggling to meet their goals of service to their neighborhood and communities. Large portions of the funds raised are done so through speaking engagements.
Morgan also works with law enforcement agencies throughout the country. Her determination to locate lost children and assist in cases involving crimes committed against children is a major part of her mission in life as well.
Morgan has appeared on national radio and television programs including Nightline, Discovery Channel, MSNBC and Odyssey.
The mother of three children, Morgan divides her time between Arizona and Oklahoma.
