I received a Book Excellence Award!


I am incredibly excited to announce that I have been recognized as a Book Excellence Award Finalist for my book, Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus – Volume One: Volcanoes in the Death and Dying Category.

The book was released on October 2018 and is about a near death experience (NDE) I had during a sudden medical emergency back on Easter week-end in 2013.

Out of hundreds of books that were entered into the Book Excellence Awards competition, my book was selected for its high quality writing, design and overall market appeal. To view my complete award listing please click here.

This book is perfect for people who are struggling with the loss of a loved one or maybe questioning the existence of God and Heaven.

Shelley’s Volume Two: Butterflies Arrives!

Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus – Volume Two: Butterflies

I am trilled to announce the delivery of my second book in the three Volume series, Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus. Volume Two: Butterflies has turned out better than I could have ever imagined. 

There are 17 extraordinary stories from other authors in Volume Two: Butterflies, and a few of my own short stories as well. All of these writers have opened up their personal lives to share with us an event that has somehow changed their life. I feel extremely fortunate to have these people share their stories in this book. The art of story telling is both healing for the writer and the reader. For the writer it surfaces and releases all kinds of memories and feelings through the writing process. For the reader, it can trigger emotions and possible suggestions on how to handle something difficult in their life. It also places the reader in another world for a short period of time and engages us all in empathy and tolerance for our neighbour. 

If you purchased Volume One: Volcanoes and enjoyed my story you will certainly savour this next book in the series. If you have not yet purchased my first book it’s not too late. Here is the link for purchasing both books online. If you live in Melfort you can also purchase the books today at Melfort Spiffy Car Wash and as of Thursday, July 18th you can purchase them at Modern Flare, Home Hardware and Birds of Paradise Florist and Pet Supplies. If you live in Saskatoon, McNally Robinson has both Volumes and if you are in the Greenwater Provincial Park area, the Greenwater Park Store has them for sale. 

I’d love some feedback once you’ve read either one or both. Enjoy the rest of the your summer and I wish you all many blessings.

Mercy – Needed More Than Ever

2016 – The Year of Mercy

There is nothing that you can do that can’t be forgiven. These are the words that ring through my essence daily, they were written on my soul during my 44 hour spiritual awakening back in April 2013. The Divine Source that I have come to know very personally since that experience has changed the way I look at forgiveness and mercy.
