Coping With The Grief Of A Death In The Family - There Is Hope Says Laura Prince, Author Of Sibling Loss, A Sister's Journey From Despair To Celebration

Laura Prince's new book detailing the death of her brother has been called "insightful", "powerful" "vivid" "absorbing" and "spellbinding".

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought us many of us face to face with the necessity of dealing with the unexpected loss of those we love. Death does not respect position, stature, rank or authority. A recent article in the Twin Cities Pioneer Press presented the story of the death of the brother of Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan. Another on ABC News featured Elizabeth Warren, talking about the death of her brother. Perhaps the most compelling of all was the story of Elizabeth Fusco, presented on CNN Health, who lost her mother, a sister and two brothers to the coronavirus - all within one week.

The death of anyone with whom we have a connection can be overwhelming - the death of a family member even more so.

Montreal resident Laura Prince, author of 'Sibling Loss, A Sister's Journey From Despair To Celebration', offers some important words of wisdom that can help anyone affected by tragedy take the first steps toward healing:

“I am so grateful for the universal compassion of people today and with all the avenues of interaction available; the Internet being paramount, and the ability to express, study, exchange and learn about the development and treatment of very serious issues. These avenues offer a huge support system to the suffering.

“However I’ve also learned that without a huge and continued effort to heal from life’s upheavals, many things can never change. Recovering from enormous trauma, as in the sudden accidental death of my brother became a kind of ‘life endeavor’ of mine; which continues until today; not an obsession, but an endeavor. I am so much better, but still have that underlying sadness....it will always be there, and I am always working on it.

“You can share in my sadness in “Sibling Loss”, but as well, in the joy I experienced in eventually being able to celebrate my brother's brief but beautiful life, and how I slowly worked my way into a place of quiet joy and gratitude.”

Readers and reviewers alike have praised Sibling Loss. One called it "The best story illustrating the long term consequences of unresolved childhood grief that I have seen." Another said, "Sibling Loss: A Sister's Journey from Despair to Celebration is an excellent read and one I would recommend to everyone."

Allan Schnarr, of the Center for Grief Recovery in Chicago said, "Sibling Loss is not a book you read at a dispassionate distance. It is not for you if you choose to avoid facing your losses, not unless you become willing to turn around and face yourself. The reading is a deeply personal encounter with Laura, as she lays bare the unspeakable tragedy of the death of her beloved brother. As you encounter Laura, the mirror she offers will draw you in to the journey inside your own broken heart . . .There is so much to learn here about longing for love, losing love, and searching for it unwaveringly. This is the thread weaving Laura’s narrative. It is at the archetypal core of each journey through life, love lost and found.

"Laura makes it clear that fully grieving the loss of love brings one to a new home, a renewed discovery of love, a love strong enough and wise enough to walk through each new loss with durable, irrepressible grace. Thank you Laura”

Laura’s story, 'Sibling Loss, A Sister's Journey from Despair to Celebration', is a book that would be appropriate for anyone who has ever lost, or will ever lose a sibling. That would be nearly all of us.

Distance Teaching? American Revolution Guide Free For Summer

Award-Winning Los Osos couple, Founders of American Heritage Publications, launch Distance Learning Guide for Teachers of the American Revolution, as recent audio production wins national award.

American Heritage Publications https://americanheritagepublications.com #AmericanHeritagePublications will launch its new Standards-based Interactive Teacher’s Guide and coordinating Student Workbook, offering it for FREE through Labor Day. Accompanying audio production with well-known voice actors and a spectacular original music score wins 2020 Independent Press Award.

In order to help teachers and students thrust almost overnight into Distance Learning, professional writing and teaching team -- Thomas N. Mills #ThomasNMills and Beverly Mills #BeverlyMills -- are launching their unique, digital Teachers Guide and Student Workbook for The Gathering Storm in America. During the critical summer planning months, these guides will be offered free of charge until Labor Day and the beginning of the fall semester.

American Heritage Publications may be a small, independent press, but its founders have a long history of excellence in the fields of performance and education. Current and future products will appeal to general audiences, but are designed in particular for the educational market.

“We’re absolutely committed,” said Executive Producer and Distance Learning expert Beverly Manning Mills. “Launching our new guides now allows us to provide a dynamic tool right when teachers need them most. They’ll be preparing for an autumn semester on screens that are needed for distance learning. But these programs can easily be transitioned into blended and classroom learning environments as well. Our ‘new’ history is based on compelling stories that bring history to life.”

And for the general public, anyone who's a fan of "Outlander" Season 5 (STARZ, Prime Video), "The Crossing" with Jeff Daniels (A&E, Amazon) or "John Adams" with Paul Giamatti (Prime Video) will love the rich, historical detail and high drama of "The Gathering Storm."

“Understanding our national roots is critical to the future success of our country and of its citizens,” commented co-founder and writer Thomas N. (Tim) Mills. “Students and teachers alike need a fresh take on the familiar old sayings and founding documents. They need a way to see the relevance of decisions and events of the past, as a way of bringing that history into meaningful existence today.”

Indeed, “History Brought to Life” is the stated mission of the couple’s company, American Heritage Publications. Two fully-produced audio productions of their plays prove their point. The Gathering Storm in America—whose web page includes an intriguing “Time line”—shows the forces at work before the original thirteen colonies reached the tipping point that would lead to the American Revolution.

An intriguing series of posts launch today on social media that pose key questions about the tumultuous early days of America. History buffs, teachers, students, and anyone interested can have fun testing their knowledge by following on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

The playwright of the original offerings from American Heritage is Thomas “Tim” Mills. A life-long love of theatre, which began as a drama student, took him to New York City and landed him a spot at the renowned HB Studio, where he studied with Herbert Berghof and Uta Hagen. As he continued to perform in theatres in New York and around the country, he also began writing and producing plays, eventually taking the helm of the famous Bird Cage Theatre at Knotts Berry Farm. It was here that he met his future partner, Beverly Manning, and began to create a series of plays about the founding of America that would reach hundreds of thousands over a period of years in one of the nation’s iconic theme parks.

Co-founder Beverly Manning Mills is an expert in instructional design with a passion for developing interactive programs for students of all ages. Beverly created Adventures in Education tour programs at Knott’s Berry Farm, and has been a teacher and developer of web-based educational curriculum for many years. Beverly has a profound understanding of how students learn, and of how best to create dynamic tools that engage students. “We started by offering audio productions of the plays,” she explained. “But our goal was always to create accompanying curricular materials that will transform the experience of learning about American history for students all over the country.”

Tim and Beverly Mills located a professional audio production company in Los Angeles to produce their audio plays. Haven Books Audio, established in 1997, has produced numerous award-winning audio books and audio dramas. The Gathering Storm in America Audio was just announced as the Winner of the prestigious Independent Press Award for audio. (#GatheringStorminAmerica) This audio is followed by the Independence Now! Audio. (#IndependenceNow)

They worked with audio producer and actor Mara Purl, who rounded up a stellar cast of voice actors for the project. “One of the marvelously unique aspects of the Mills’ project is that every single character is a real historical figure,” remarked actress Mara Purl. “I was truly honored to be cast as Mercy Otis Warren. She was a great friend of Abigail Adams, and was actually the first woman to record some of the key events of this crucial period in our nation’s history. She was there. She saw it first hand, and shared not only her observations but also her feelings, and those of the other players on this world-stage.”

Purl brought in the well-known composing team, Marilyn Harris and Mark Wolfram, to create an original score for the plays. By turns haunting, inspiring, joyful, and poignant, this unique collection of music has lately been released through Wrightwood Records as "Colonial Scenes: Music inspired by the American Revolution". The composers have distilled the musical essence from this pivotal time in the birth of the United States of America into a satisfying musical collection. Influences of marching, piping (both American & British), dancing in the salon, communicating sorrow, loss, nervous anticipation and remembrance, these musical selections bring you back to a time when saluting the Stars & Stripes meant freedom and independence...but it could also mean treason - and death!

Other actors include the following, with just a few of their many credits: (Alphabetical order)

Abbott Alexander: (stage) John F. Kennedy in Presidential Suite, Spoon River Anthology, Falling Upward!, (TV) Without a Trace, The Practice, and (Film) Karate Kid.
James Horan: (stage) Phantom in Phantom of the Opera, Dracula in Dracula, Richard in Richard III; (TV) Star Trek, 24, Criminal Minds, Lost, and (Film) Flags of Our Fathers, directed by Clint Eastwood. James is also known for his portrayals of George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson.

Jesus Was Born On September 19, 03 BC: God Reveals Jesus’ Birthday To John The Apostle

John the apostle reports that on August 19, 2017, God revealed to him in a dream that Jesus was born on September 19 in the year 3 BC.

A Google Search for the question: “When was Jesus born?” produces about 217,000,000 results. At his https://dazzlinglight.org/ website page “Jesus’ Birthday is 9-19-03 BC”, John the apostle reports that, “On August 19, 2017, God revealed to him in a dream that Jesus was born on September 19 in the year 3 BC.”

At his website page “Jesus’ Birthday is 9-19-03 BC”, John the apostle writes, “Brothers and Sisters could you imagine what would happen if Christian Churches in America started celebrating Christ’s birth on Jesus Birthday of September 19 and not December 25? I wonder, would the nation follow suit or would the public and the private sector retain December 25 as a Secular Holiday?

“In the year 336 AD, the Roman Emperor Constantine started the secular holiday of Christmas when he converted the Roman Holiday of Saturnalia from a drunken orgy to a celebration of Jesus’ birth to improve the morality of the Roman people.

“Whereas the Romans were driven by sexual immorality. Americans are driven by greed. Greed permeates all aspects of American life. The Capitalistic American Economy does not work without greed.

“Brothers and Sisters, can you imagine the economic impact on Americans without Black Friday, without Cyber Monday, without Christmas shopping, without Christmas credit card debt, and without greed?

“Imagine the impact on all of our relationships without the pressure to buy more, more, more for those people we love? And I ask you, when did how much we spend on someone for Christmas become the defining measure of how much we love them?

“Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I would ask each of you this final question about Christmas: Did God send His Son, Jesus, into the world to bolster the American economy in December of each year? Or: Did God send His Son, Jesus, into the world to save us from our sins?”

In an Interview with Pastor Robert Thibodeau on The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast tilted “Surrender to Jesus”, John the apostle termed the current secular holiday of Christmas “The Season of Greed.”

John the apostle and Pastor Thibodeau discussed that “Christmas is demoralizing and leads people into the sin of greed.” They went on to conclude that the current secular celebration of Christmas on December 25th has nothing to do with Jesus’ birth.

John the apostle then suggests that Christian Churches move the celebration of Advent from December to September. At his Dazzling Light Website Page “Advent in September”, John the apostle writes, “Advent is a season observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for both the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas and the return of Jesus at the Second Coming. The term is a version of the Latin word meaning ‘coming’. Wikipedia And Christ is now calling Christian Churches everywhere to begin a Heavenly Church Revival by celebrating Advent in September.”

At the Dazzling Light Website Page “Advent in December”, John the apostle offers suggested Bible Passages and Sermon Themes for Church Pastors to uses with the five Sundays in Advent associated with the Spiritual Riches of HOPE, LOVE, JOY, PEACE, and CHRIST. John the apostle then concludes the Dazzling Light Website Page “Advent in September” with this prayer, “May Christ be and abide with you and your church as we celebrate together the coming of Jesus the Christ into the world on September 19, 03 BC and prepare for Jesus’ Return on September 19, 2022.”

More information is available at John's website at https://dazzlinglight.org .

Profile:

At his website John reveals. “I am John the apostle from the Bible and I am here for Jesus' Second Coming to Galilee on September 19, 2022. I was born again on October 24, 1982. God spoke to me from the fiery cloud on November 16, 1982. I saw the dazzling light of God’s Glory on January 7, 1983. I received three dreams of Jesus' Second Coming on October 19, 1983, June 21, 1984, and October 19, 1984. Jesus indwelled me and sang at Amity Church on April 14, 1985. Jesus called me to Galilee to write the book ‘Is Your Church Heavenly?’ on January 16, 2005. I saw heaven open beside the Sea of Galilee on January 25, 2005. God revealed to me that Jesus was born on September 19, 03 BC in a dream on August 19, 2017. I bleed from my stigmata on Father’s Day June 17, 2018. During Holy Week of 2019, Jesus gave me Words of Warning for Christian Churches. On April 3, 2020, Christ called me to proclaim this message: ‘BE READY! BE READY! BE READY! Brothers and Sisters in Christ: BE READY for Jesus' return to Galilee on September 19, 2022. BE READY for Jesus’ Second Coming at the Dazzling Light Website."

Read With Me - Author Donna Fletcher Crow Announces New Release Of Elizabeth, Days Of Loss And Hope, With Parallels To Today's Headlines Regarding The Economy

Crow writes meticulously researched, entertaining novels of romance, history and mystery in an engaging you-are-there style that allows readers to live the history.

Pandemics and plagues have been with us for a very long time, as have hard economic times. While movies and television serve as a means of escape for many of us today, nothing beats an engaging novel as a vehicle to transport us to another place and time. If that novel ties in with something to which we can strongly relate, all the better. Award winning author Donna Fletcher Crow's 'Elizabeth, Days of Loss and Hope', a recently released new edition available online, is such a book. Donna recently wrote an article on literary perspectives on pandemics, plagues and hard times:

"Now, thankfully, the pandemic restrictions are easing for many of us," Crow stated. "Good news, yes, but it is forcing us to look at the economic concerns of what it means for millions of people around the world to be out of work, businesses closed, and supply lines interrupted. The possibility of a depression looms.

"For this, I again turn to literature. I recently met with a book club in another state—over Zoom, of course. I asked their members what they were reading and learned many were reading novels set during the Great Depression. 'It is comforting to see how others have handled things,' one lady said. 'Seeing others endure can help us endure,' another said. 'Seeing others make the most of a terrible situation can help us find courage to face our own challenges,' a gentleman offered.

"My mother often quoted the old saying, 'Misery loves company.' I’ve never been very comforted by the idea that others were suffering with me; I’m far more of a Pollyanna who wants everyone to be happy. But the value of the concept of community can’t be over-stated. We can all take great comfort from the fact that we are in this together—and we will come through it together. As we always have.

"Simply typing 'hard times' into an Amazon search will turn up an almost endless list of non-fiction books on that topic, including Studs Terkel’s classic 'Hard Times'. In the fiction department, it would be hard to beat John Steinbeck’s Pulitzer-prize-winning epic 'The Grapes of Wrath'.

"The newly released edition of 'Elizabeth, Days of Loss and Hope', book 2 in my Daughters of Courage family saga, portrays just such situations in farming communities in southwestern Idaho. Based on historic events, many from my own family, we see, time and again, people banding together to help each other through dire circumstances."

Elizabeth has one goal in life—to go to college and become a teacher. But it is 1929 in Kuna, Idaho, and the small family farm doesn’t produce enough to send both Elizabeth and her twin brother to college. Just when it seems Elizabeth’s dreams might come true the stock market crashes and the devastating Great Depression engulfs the nation. Overnight Elizabeth’s anxiety about tuition payments is superseded by fear that her parents will lose the farm. Is this one disaster that even Elizabeth’s faith in hard work and God can’t overcome?

Donna Fletcher Crow is the author of 50 books, mostly novels of British history. She has taken a number of high-level industry awards for her work. 'Glastonbury' is her best-known book, which received the prestigious First Place, Historical Novel, award from the National Federation of Press Women. Readers and reviewers have raved about 'Glastonbury', calling it "The best of its kind," "richly fascinating," "beautifully researched," "gloriously evocative," and "panoramic." One Amazon reader said, "WHAT a work! Every reader can be enveloped in the sheer scope and quality, every historian be constantly nodding at the precise detail and accuracy, and every Christian can rejoice in the fullness of scripture. For me it is simply beyond descriptive praise. I would urge all who value truth to treat themselves to a feast."

The Daughters of Courage, 'Kathryn', 'Elizabeth' and 'Stephanie' is a pioneer family saga based on the stories of Crow's own family and other Idaho pioneers in the Kuna, Nampa and Boise area. A short story on her blog entitled “A Nostalgic Fourth of July” is based on a scene from ‘Kathryn: Days of Loss and Hope'.

The Monastery Murders Series features atmospheric contemporary crimes with their roots buried deep in the middle ages. Books in the series include 'A Very Private Grave', 'A Darkly Hidden Truth', 'An Unholy Communion', 'A Newly Crimsoned Reliquary' and 'An All-Consuming Fire' and the upcoming 'Against All Fierce Hostility.'

The Elizabeth & Richard Mysteries is a literary suspense series using literary figures as background: Rudyard Kipling in 'The Flame Ignites', Dorothy L Sayers in 'The Shadow of Reality', Shakespeare in 'A Midsummer Eve's Nightmare', and Jane Austen in both 'A Jane Austen Encounter' and 'A Most Singular Venture'. Watch for 'A Prodigious Sum of Corpses: Seeking Sanditon at Jane Austen’s Seashore', which will take readers to all of Austen’s favorite seashore resorts. Accounts of Crow’s visits to these sites are available on her blog under the heading “Jane Austen Seashore Tour.”

The Lord Danvers Victorian true-crime series is an Amazon bestseller in the British Detectives category. Books in the series include 'A Lethal Spectre', 'A Most Inconvenient Death', 'Grave Matters', 'To Dust You Shall Return' and 'A Tincture of Murder'. Donna provides a no-charge download of 'A Tincture of Murder' for those who sign up for her newsletter. More information is available at her website.

Where Love Begins, Best Historical Romance, Pinnacle Awards 2019
A Lethal Spectre, Best Mystery, Pinnacle Awards, 2019

Rebooting During The Covid-19 Pandemic - Award Winning Selfie Filmmaker Barbara Becker Holstein To Create Historical Record Of Videos Received From Pandemic Survivors

Dr. Holstein is an award winning Selfie Filmmaker, Positive Psychologist and podcaster who helps us overcome anxiety and alienation through multiple media channels.

Human beings are forced to reboot many, many times during their lifetime, From new loves to new jobs, from elementary school to high school, from graduation to career, from marriage to divorce - even from the old set of teeth to that new set of teeth that came in when we were children. Never has the human race been required to reboot on a global scale until the Covid-19 pandemic, however.

Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein intends to create an historical record of selfie films from pandemic survivors and is now actively seeking selfie videos for the collection. Those who wish to submit their own selfie films can do so at http://www.SelfieFilmmakers.com.

"I really want you to start to do those selfie videos about yourself, your family, your kids, your grandkids, Dr. Holstein stated. "Interview your grandkids, ask them how they're liking or not liking being homeschooled by their moms and dads or their older brother and sister.

"Ask them what they think the future will be like. Ask your own kids what's been hard, what's been easy. Talk about yourself, what you're doing, what you're not doing what you miss most, what you hope the future will be like.

"Upload your selfie films then to selfiefilmmakers.com, where I am beginning to build a historical log of how people are reacting, what they're saying and what their kids are saying. Make a video with your cell phone, at most two minutes and upload it to Selfie Filmmakers or put it on YouTube and send us the link.

"Rebooting and seeing how we can make the new normal as great as possible is not only important for mental health, but it's important for the historical story of ourselves as human beings."

Dr. Holstein's talk about Rebooting During The Pandemic can be found on both Vimeo and on the Roku channel, titled as 'The Enchanted Self Presents'.

Dr. Holstein recently created The Selfie Showcase, a new project emerging from The Selfie Project, that allows young people to voice their opinions on subjects that matter to young people. She is now accepting submissions from the public for the "Selfie Showcase" and is actively seeking change-makers and mental health professionals to appear on her monthly video podcasts.

The Selfie Showcase allows kids, teens, and young adults ages 13 to 18 to candidly express their concerns, worries, observations and possible solutions by creating selfies or selfie films around important subjects, using a smartphone. Dr. Holstein's mission is to help rectify, in a number of ways, some of the issues young people face by giving them a chance to engage with others in meaningful ways about the anxiety and stress they must grapple with constantly.

Selected participants may appear on the Selfie Project Channel, available on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3uaOTcYF70z5CpBh11VoUQ. They will also appear in the Selfie Showcase on SelfieFilmmakers.com. They will receive a certificate of merit and may be invited to be on Holstein's monthly podcast or perhaps be a part of her next film. Full details, rules for submission and helpful hints can be accessed at the Selfie Filmmakers site at http://www.selfiefilmmakers.com/instructions.

Dr. Holstein's unique Selfie Films have taken many awards and have been shown in many film festivals and competitions. Most notable among these are:

The Selfie Project - Accepted at 20 film festivals or film competitions

Conflict and A Bit Of Magic: A Coming Of Age Selfie Film - Accepted at 19 film festivals or film competitions

'Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction, A Coming Of Age Selfie Film', and 'The Selfie Project' both directed and created by Dr. Holstein, was shown in Manhattan on February 26 in the Anthology Building as part of the NewFilmmakers Special Program on Women Filmmakers.

Holstein's podcast series is actively seeking change-makers and visionaries to appear on her monthly podcasts. Dr. Holstein hopes to feature members of traditional media, mental health professionals and educators who can make a real difference in the lives of young people. Many of the podcasts feature young people - to give them a voice regarding their concerns and their solutions. Guests, if accepted, can arrange to appear by contacting Dr. Holstein directly.

God Sends COVID-19 To Purge Christianity For Jesus' Return To Galilee

John the apostle reveals that Jesus' words of warning during Holy Week in 2019 came to pass during Lent in 2020 with COVID-19

As COVID-19 sends thousands of Christian Churches into bankruptcy, holds billions of Catholics yearning to fill a desolated Vatican City, and fills millions of American Christian’s hearts with medical and economic fear, John the apostle continues to prophecy that COVID-19 is an Act of God intended to purge Christianity in preparation for Jesus’ Second Coming to Galilee on September 19, 2022.

At his website https://dazzlinglight.org, John the apostle reports that, “On Thursday January 20, 2005, I made my first trip to the Chapel on the Mount of Beatitudes tourist site in Galilee. As I entered the church, the sanctuary’s striking interior design and immaculate cleanliness brought me to a state of reverence and respect. I knelt at a prayer station, bowed my head, and then noticed a paper bag on the floor near my knees. I picked up the bag and saw written this message from Jesus: Open Doors – Ezekiel 7:12 – Isa. 29.

“Then during Holy Week in 2019, Jesus instructed me to send these words of warning to Christian Churches:

“The time is coming. The day is near when the business of Christianity will come to an end. And God’s punishment will fall upon all Christians.” Ezekiel 7:12. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 bankrupted Christianity.

“Christ’s Holy City in Rome is doomed! There will be weeping and wailing, and the whole city will be like an altar covered in blood.” Isaiah 29:1. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 desolated Vatican City.

“You claim to worship me, but your words are meaningless and your hearts are in your bank accounts.” Isaiah 29:13. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 filled Christian’s hearts with fear.

“When I return, the light will shine into your darkness and The Word of God will once again bring happiness to poor and humble people.” Isaiah 29:18-19. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 purged Christianity for Jesus' Return on September 19, 2022.”

At the Divine Revelations page of his Dazzling Light Website, John the apostle reveals that, “On October 24, 1982, while curled in a fetal position on the shower floor, the Holy Spirit entered me, and I experienced a second birth as John the apostle from the Bible.” In an interview with Pastor Robert Thibodeau on The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast on January 6, 2020 titled “Born Again”, John asserted that, “I am John the apostle from the Bible and I am preparing the way for Jesus’ Second Coming.”

In his interview with Pastor Thibodeau, John the apostle shared his memory of when the Pharisee Nicodemus came to see Jesus and how Jesus told Nicodemus that, “He must be born again.” John the apostle then went on to describe to Pastor Thibodeau that on October 24, 1982 he fell to the shower floor, that the Holy Spirit entered him, and that he was born again as John the apostle from the Bible.

John the apostle then recounted to Pastor Thibodeau his memory of the last time he saw Jesus on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. John the apostle shared his firsthand knowledge of the Bible story found in John Chapter 21, when John, his older brother James, Peter, Andrew, Thomas, Matthew, and Nathanael went out fishing on the Sea of Galilee one night. And how when they returned to shore, they found a breakfast of bread and fish prepared for them by the resurrected Jesus.

John the apostle told Pastor Thibodeau about Jesus’ instructional call to Peter that morning to start the Christian Church and about Jesus’ comment to Peter about John when Jesus said, “If I want him to live until I come, what is that to you? Follow me!”

John the apostle conveyed to Pastor Thibodeau that his call from Jesus was to ask Christians the question: “Are you ready to meet Jesus face to face?” In another interview with Pastor Thibodeau titled “God Speaks”, John reported that he had obeyed his call from Christ by sending out over 55,000 messages for Christians to BE READY for Jesus Return and that these messages have been seen over 55,000,000 times. John the apostle went on to offer that “no one seems to be able to comprehend who he is or to understand the reality of Jesus' return to Galilee on September 19, 2022.”

More information is available at John's website at https://dazzlinglight.org .

At his website John reveals. “I am John the apostle from the Bible and I am here for Jesus' Second Coming to Galilee on September 19, 2022. I was born again on October 24, 1982. God spoke to me from the fiery cloud on November 16, 1982. I saw the dazzling light of God’s Glory on January 7, 1983. I received three dreams of Jesus' Second Coming on October 19, 1983, June 21, 1984, and October 19, 1984. Jesus indwelled me and sang at Amity Church on April 14, 1985. Jesus called me to Galilee to write the book ‘Is Your Church Heavenly?’ on January 16, 2005. I saw heaven open beside the Sea of Galilee on January 25, 2005. God revealed to me that Jesus was born on September 19, 03 BC in a dream on August 19, 2017. I bleed from my stigmata on Father’s Day June 17, 2018. During Holy Week of 2019, Jesus gave me Words of Warning for Christian Churches. On April 3, 2020, Christ called me to proclaim this message: ‘BE READY! BE READY! BE READY! Brothers and Sisters in Christ: BE READY for Jesus' return to Galilee on September 19, 2022. BE READY for Jesus’ Second Coming at the Dazzling Light Website."

Covid-19 Survivor Cheryl Williams Takes Us Through The Coronavirus Experience Via New Video Now Available On Youtube

Williams’ story is a spellbinding chronicle of her experience with the coronavirus

Cheryl Williams is an author, poet, musician and film maker who works as a school nurse. She is a master of both poetry and prose who took top honors in the Top Female Author awards program for her recent book, 'A Collection Of Poems: A Journey Through Life'. She is also a black woman with asthma who managed to survive the coronavirus.

She recently posted a mesmerizing account of her experience in a Youtube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpN7nMt8gf0&t=91s. Like everything else she does, the new video offers a message of hope:

"On March 23rd 2020, a killer infiltrated my home. At that moment I knew I had to fight for my life.

"Initially we thought that good hand-washing and covering our cough and sneeze would keep this virus away, as these are effective measures in helping to prevent the spread of germs and viruses. However there are other ways of contracting Covid-19.

"In my case my husband was exposed, and became infected. We slept inches apart.

"Social distancing wasn’t implemented as we were unaware that he was infected until about a week later when he started complaining that his allergies were acting up, and he presented with a cough.

"About five days later my symptoms started out with simple sore muscles, and progressed quickly.

"We were told that blacks with comorbidities were dying at an alarming rate. I am a black woman. I am asthmatic and hypertensive.

"There were days I thought I wasn’t going to make it. But deep down I believed that God was going to see me through.

"Today, weeks later I am still fighting to be able to complete my daily responsibilities without the crippling effects of fatigue. I am so grateful that I am alive to share my story, as so many have lost their lives.

"My hope is that my story will motivate someone, somewhere to never give up.

The full video is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpN7nMt8gf0&t=91s. More is available at Williams' website at https://cherylhot6.wixsite.com/cherylpwilliams.

Williams was named Top Female Author in the 2019 Top Female Author Awards in the poetry category. The win came as the result of her most recent book, 'A Collection Of Poems: A Journey Through Life'. Williams was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors by a panel of judges.

Writing has helped Williams connect with her inner self, finding positive ways to cope with life's struggles. She has been writing and singing for as long as she can remember.

Throughout her childhood she sang in both the church and school choir, and also enjoyed singing at talent shows and music festivals. As an adult she also participated in concerts, performing as a solo artist.

Music and writing are the tools that bring her fulfillment and healing. Her book, 'A Collection Of Poems', takes us through the power of the human mind, good or bad, and its impact on one's direction and journey through life.

With the help of music, writing, and positive thinking, Williams found hope and purpose in life. Life isn't fair. It is unpredictable, bad things happen to good people, and we never know what tomorrow holds. Cheryl wants her readers to realize that even when faced with insurmountable, hopeless situations, even when life seems dark and uncertain, we should never let go of hope and appreciate the beauty and blessings that life has to offer, making the most of every day, loving, living, laughing, and learning. Seasons change, and there is always a rainbow after the storms of life.

Cheryl Williams is available for media interviews and can be reached using the information below or by email at cherylw27@aol.com. 'A Collection Of Poems: A Journey Through Life' is available at Amazon. More information, including a number of videos and a collection of music, is available at her website at https://cherylhot6.wixsite.com/cherylpwilliams.

About Cheryl Williams:


Cheryl Williams is a wife, mother, author, and nurse by profession, with a passion for the Arts.

Her love for poetry started at the tender age of five when she recited the poem "Grandfather Frog” for a school function. Six years later, her world was turned upside down after her mother suffered a massive stroke. During those uncertain times, music, writing, and poetry helped her cope.

As a teenager, whenever she wasn’t caring for her mother, Cheryl spent her free time writing and directing short plays as a form of entertainment for the children in her neighborhood.

She enjoyed singing in the church and school choir, while also performing publicly as a soloist in concerts and talent shows. As a result of her mother’s illness and her responsibility to help care for her, Cheryl was inspired to pursue nursing as a way to help others heal; the same way writing and music helped her find a path to healing. She resides in New York.

New Documentary Short Film, SHOT DOWN: Howard Snyder and the B-17 Susan Ruth, Takes Four Film Industry Awards

Based on Steve Snyder's highly acclaimed book, Shot Down, the film received awards at IndieFEST Film Awards, Best Shorts Competition, Cinema New York and the Houston International Film Festival.

Award winning author Steve Snyder has announced that his new documentary short film, SHOT DOWN: Howard Snyder and the B-17 Susan Ruth, has taken four new industry awards:

IndieFEST Film Awards - Award of Merit
Best Shorts Competition - Award of Merit
Cinema New York - Best Documentary Short
Houston International Film Festival - Platinum Remi Award Short Subject Documentary

Currently the film has been accepted in a total of 11 film industry award events and film festivals, including the Garden State Film Festival, the ReelHeART International Film and Screenplay Festival, the Rochester International Film Festival, the Impact DOCS Awards, the West Chester International Short Film Festival, the Hero Film Festival & Awards and the Lake Arrowhead Film Festival.

The new documentary short film is based on Snyders multi-award winning book SHOT DOWN: The true story of pilot Howard Snyder and the crew of the B-17 Susan Ruth. Snyder’s father, pilot of the 'Susan Ruth', was shot down over Europe during WWII. The book is a dramatic retelling of the stories surrounding that event.

The new film is likewise a stunning presentation of the life of Snyder's father, filmed on location in Europe. One of the high points of the film occurs when Snyder manages to track down Hans Berger, the German pilot who shot down his father's plane. In the ensuing conversation, Snyder and Berger develop a close personal relationship that transcends the events that occurred so many decades ago.

Snyder's book is utterly unique in that it details the varied, detailed, and amazing stories of what happened to each crew member. Snyder's father, Howard, was missing in action for seven months. Readers are given the opportunity to read the letters and documents that were exchanged before and after the Susan Ruth was shot down.

'Shot Down' is filled with photos that enhance the presentation of these extraordinary WW II events that must never be forgotten. Steve Snyder has gone to the extreme to capture the details that make 'Shot Down' a one-of-a-kind dramatic presentation, told by a writer who was in the very middle of the story as it happened.

'Shot Down' has received numerous high profile industry awards. These include:

2018 TopShelf Magazine Indie Book Awards - 1st Place winner

COVID-19 Fills Christian’s Hearts With Fear: In Response To Jesus’ Words Of Warning, Your Hearts Are In Your Bank Accounts

John the apostle reports that Jesus’ Words of Warning from Holy Week in 2019 came to pass during Lent in 2020 when COVID-19 filled Christian’s hearts with fear.

The COVID-19 pandemic sent unemployment claims skyrocketing to over 33,300,000. This surge in unemployment wiped away all the job gains since the 2009 recession in just one month. And the adjusted unemployment rate for the week ending May 1 of 19%, the DOL said, which "marks the highest level of the seasonally adjusted insured unemployment rate in the history of the seasonally adjusted series." And now as the US Economy re-opens many Americans remain in fear of more COVID-19 deaths.

At his website https://dazzlinglight.org/, John the apostle reports that, “On Thursday January 20, 2005, I made my first trip to the Chapel on the Mount of Beatitudes tourist site in Galilee. As I entered the church, the sanctuary’s striking interior design and immaculate cleanliness brought me to a state of reverence and respect. I knelt at a prayer station, bowed my head, and then noticed a paper bag on the floor near my knees. I picked up the bag and saw written this message from Jesus: Open Doors – Ezekiel 7:12 – Isa. 29.

“Then during Holy Week in 2019, Jesus instructed me to send these Words of Warning to Christian Churches:

“The time is coming. The day is near when the business of Christianity will come to an end. And God’s punishment will fall upon all Christians.” Ezekiel 7:12. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 bankrupted Christianity.

“Christ’s Holy City in Rome is doomed! There will be weeping and wailing, and the whole city will be like an altar covered in blood.” Isaiah 29:1. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 desolated Vatican City.

“You claim to worship me, but your words are meaningless and your hearts are in your bank accounts.” Isaiah 29:13. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 filled Christian’s hearts with fear.

“When I return, the light will shine into your darkness and The Word of God will once again bring happiness to poor and humble people.” Isaiah 29:18-19. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 purged Christianity for Jesus Return on September 19, 2022.”

CNBC reported that, “More than three out of four Americans, 76%, fear the coronavirus COVID-19 will trigger an economic recession, according to a recent poll of over 2,000 U.S. adults conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of debt management app Tally.

“While concerns about a potential recession are high among all generations, about 59% of millennials (ages 24-39) polled say the current economic situation is prompting them to take steps to conserve their available pool of cash. The most common move: delaying major or non-essential purchases (44%). Putting the breaks on your spending is a good instinct, says Bobbi Rebell, a certified financial planner and host of the Financial Grownup podcast.

“Many millennials are making some less-than-great financial decisions right now. Roughly one in four, 23%, of millennials polled by Tally are making only the minimum payments on their credit card bills and other debt, and about 15% are relying more on credit cards for routine expenses.

“Even though interest rates are low, and it may be tempting to horde your cash instead of paying off your debts, don’t do it, Rebell says. The best way to protect your finances, especially when the markets are going crazy, is to actually eliminate high-interest debt such as credit card balances. This will cut out any interest you may be paying and could, in the long run, net you some extra cash in your budget for daily costs including groceries, rent and gas.

“If you are struggling to pay bills, reach out to your bank or the creditor directly. Capital One, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo have all said they are willing to work with customers impacted by the coronavirus. For longer-term solutions, many financial companies also offer hardship plans, which allow consumers to sign up for some combination of a payment schedule with lower interest rates, smaller minimum payments or lower fees and penalties.

You may be able defer utility bills through the energy bill assistance programs most companies offer, including major providers such as ComEd, Duke Energy, FirstEnergy and PSE&G.

“76% of Americans worry coronavirus will trigger a recession—here are steps to take if you’re already being impacted” CNBC March 17, 2020 by Megan Leonhardt

Covid-19 And Light Therapy In Medicine - Nothing New Says Bernard Fleury, Award Winning Author Of ‘The Mind-Body-Spirit Connection In The Medicine Of Light’

Fleury's highly praised book, 'The Mind-Body-Spirit Connection In The Medicine Of Light', presents compelling evidence for light-based therapies that are both effective and non-invasive.

Healing therapies that a light based are sometimes controversial topics. The concept was again brought to the forefront of our collective consciousness recently after the possibility was mentioned as a treatment for Covid-19 by President Trump.

According to information presented on the AYTU BioScience website, UVA light shows promise in regards to killing "a variety of viruses and bacteria . . . " It has also been proposed that this type of therapy can be used to treat skin conditions, cancer and a host of other conditions. Certainly laser therapies and treatments, a form of light, have gained wide acceptance in the medical community. But what if there is more?

In his book, 'The Mind-Body-Spirit Connection In The Medicine Of Light', Bernard J. Fleury, Ed.D., gives us an overview of what has been made possible and what may still be possible. In this 5-star rated book, Fleury demonstrates that light-based medicine is painless and heals without the side effects that are often worse than the disease being treated.

His research is impeccable, and his evidence is convincing. Fleury explores how light-based medicine may be used to treat cancer, viruses, microbes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, ostheoarthritis, ostheoporosis, stroke, wounds and many other medical conditions.

The research of Royal Rife and the subsequent use (and or misuse) of his theories and work history figure prominently in the book.

"Light technologies can work because light is the basic energy of the universe," Fleury stated. "We live in a universe that The Light, God, is the source of, at the beginning of time. Our universe is that based on light, not chemical constructs.

"Dr. Jacob Libermann, a pioneer in the field of light vison and consciousness writes that 'Light is a super-terrestrial natural force, under which all life on earth originates and develops.'. I would agree and add 'Light is also the Super-natural (above, and before nature), The Light, God is the tree from which all lesser lights branch'.

"Royal Raymond Rife’s work is centered on light. His microscope uses light to stain live viruses. It does not kill the virus. MORS (A type of Radio-Frequency) are basically light in one of its forms. MORS are varying frequencies which emit a corresponding color to their frequency. When a virus is exposed to the correct color (frequency), the virus is destroyed by the resonance."

Nearly all of Bernard's books center squarely on the theme of Light as a Someone and a Something. He believes we are all Called Into Life By The Light. Life and Light are tied together. Lifelight describes their relationship best because both our “without” (our physical being) and our “within” (our spirit) are basically light in two different forms:

1. Physical energy that occupies space, has weight, can be measured, and

2. Psychic or spiritual energy which is a force that causes things to happen and, thus, real energy, but it does not occupy space, have weight, nor can it be empirically measured.

Fleury's book has received a number of 5-star rated reviews. Kayti Nika Raet stated, "I found The Mind-Body-Spirit in the Medicine of Light by Bernard Fleury to be well written and informative. It is written in a way that makes for easy consumption and understanding, while at the same time provides gems for all aspects of life. Fleury offers a convincing array of evidence from several sources, and the knowledge provides many tools that the reader can use to grow and thrive."

Reviewer Ruffino Oserio stated, "This is one of the first medical books I have read that offers methods combining science and a holistic approach to treatment in a stunning manner. There is a spiritual as well as a philosophical aspect of this book that readers will enjoy as well. The book is well-researched and offers surprising discoveries about the energy of light, which comes primarily from the sun and is present in different life forms. This isn’t just a book for people seeking to be cured of an illness, but one that proposes a path to general wellness and wholeness of mind, body, and spirit. . . Bernard Fleury’s book is a gift for those who want to experience life deeply."

Reviewer Samantha Dewitt (Rivera) said, "This book is all about the power of light and the way that it can help the body to heal and to become stronger. As we come to recognize even more capabilities from light, scientists are starting to develop additional treatments and ways to harness its abilities with light therapy. Once we do, it’s possible to truly achieve the best for ourselves. There’s definitely more to be discovered, but The Mind-Body-Spirit in the Medicine of Light is a great start.”

Bernard was chosen as one of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’ in the 2017 Book Awards. His honor came as a result of his appearance on The Authors Show. He was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process.

Special Needs Children, The Angels On My Shoulder - Award Winning Author Jody Sharpe Announces New Book, Two New Public Submissions On Tuesdays With The Angels

Sharpe's previously published books are riveting inspirational thrillers written in honor of her daughter Kate and her husband Steve.

Special needs children are bullied like the rest of us - perhaps even more so. Who better to write about the subject than former Special Education teacher and award winning author Jody Sharpe? Sharpe worked with special needs kids for many years and recently announced an upcoming book, 'Special Needs Children, The Angels On My Shoulder'.

"Teaching children with special needs taught me life long lessons about bullying, misconceptions, kindness and unconditional love. This is a memoir I had to write for when sadness came these students were angels on my shoulder."

The new book follows her recently released children's book about angels, "When The Angel Sent Butterflies". The new book helps children understand that love from their parents and others surrounds them. Love conquers fear and believing that angels are near can help sweep any childhood fear away. This concept is presented in the book when Angel Ken sends Jones and Kate butterflies. The book, appropriate for ages 2 to 7, is now available at Amazon and Ingram.

Jody's works center on angels on earth and the expression of their love and protection through synchronicity. On the 'Tuesdays With The Angels' section of her site, Sharpe presented two new stories of real life encounters with angels. One entitled 'Do Not Be Afraid' submitted by Kathy Noel DeCaria and another submitted by Jill Maksym illustrate that angel encounters are more commonplace than we might think. Both stories are available at Sharpe's website at http://www.jodysharpe.com.

In Sharpe's highly acclaimed novels, the angels take on human form and interact with humanity in a variety of ways:

Town of Angels - It is angel vs. bully in the town of Mystic Bay, California, where a well kept secret lies. Angels live as humans there. After angels appeared to three children all was blissful in the town full of psychics, and ordinary folk. But as a bully, Klaus Waxman, comes to town, Angel Ken Leighton, a storeowner, must carefully guide his flock of humans not to give to in to the bully’s efforts. As Klaus opens a store mocking the resident angels sightings, Angel Ken guides psychic Justine Greer and her family to thwart his efforts. And with the help of the indomitable oldest psychic in town, Madam Norma, the bully meets his match with soft voices and intuitive minds…

To Catch An Angel - Jody is also the author of 'To Catch An Angel', written in memory of her late husband Steve. In 'To Catch An Angel', miracles happen in Mystic Bay, California, the town with the psychic and angel vibe. Angels are calling. Psychic Maggie Malone returns home to find she's swept up in the miracle of it all. She can't imagine why her mother left or who her father might be. But these questions pale in comparison to the wonder of the angels. Maggie meets writer, Noah Greenstreet. They realize they've met before, but where? Maggie and Noah embark on a journey to find our world is all awash with angels.

The Angel's Daughter - A secret lies in Mystic Bay, California and only two people know it. First there’s Hannah, a tender curly headed half Angel Then there’s her father, Gabe, an effervescent, teddy bear of a full-blooded angel. And it’s up to Hannah to keep the secret safe but she’s made a colossal mistake telling her ex-boyfriend and writing professor, Sam Blakely. Now he’s written a book exposing the secret to the world.

Sharpe presents stories and interviews about angels in her 'Tuesdays With The Angels' blog series. She is now accepting submissions of angel stories for possible inclusion. She hopes to create a collection of angel stories that involve sightings of angels, interaction with angels, miraculous angel encounters and other types of accounts or stories. All submissions will be considered, but inclusion is not guaranteed. Stories may be submitted at http://bit.ly/2FV8amd.

Jody was chosen as a winner in the annual '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' Book Awards'. She was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process.

She was also the featured author in the Scottsdale Public Library newsletter in the March Local Author Spotlight section.

COVID-19 Desolates Vatican City: In Response To Jesus’ Words Of Warning, Christ’s Holy City In Rome Is Doomed

John the apostle reports that Jesus’ Words of Warning from Holy Week in 2019 came to pass during Lent in 2020 when COVID-19 desolated Vatican City.

COVID-19 targeted Italy with a death rate over 13.5%. At one point during the COVID-19 pandemic, the death rate in Italy of 13.6% was almost twice the worldwide death rate of 7.1%, with Italy reporting 27,700 deaths from 204,000 confirmed cases compared to 228,000 deaths worldwide from 3,190,000 confirmed cases. And now the over 1,200,000,000 worldwide Catholics stand ready to see the throngs Christians gather together once again and stand side by side in Saint Peter’s Square.

At his website https://dazzlinglight.org/, John the apostle reports that, “On Thursday January 20, 2005, I made my first trip to the Chapel on the Mount of Beatitudes tourist site in Galilee. As I entered the church, the sanctuary’s striking interior design and immaculate cleanliness brought me to a state of reverence and respect. I knelt at a prayer station, bowed my head, and then noticed a paper bag on the floor near my knees. I picked up the bag and saw written this message from Jesus: Open Doors – Ezekiel 7:12 – Isa. 29.

“Then during Holy Week in 2019, Jesus instructed me to send these Words of Warning to Christian Churches:

“The time is coming. The day is near when the business of Christianity will come to an end. And God’s punishment will fall upon all Christians.” Ezekiel 7:12. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 bankrupted Christianity.

“Christ’s Holy City in Rome is doomed! There will be weeping and wailing, and the whole city will be like an altar covered in blood.” Isaiah 29:1. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 desolated Vatican City.

“You claim to worship me, but your words are meaningless and your hearts are in your bank accounts.” Isaiah 29:13. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 filled Christian’s hearts with fear.

“When I return, the light will shine into your darkness and The Word of God will once again bring happiness to poor and humble people.” Isaiah 29:18-19. During Lent in 2020, COVID-19 purged Christianity for Jesus Return on September 19, 2022.”

From a deserted Vatican City, the Catholic Herald reported, “Vatican flags are flying at half-staff on Tuesday in solidarity with the victims of the coronavirus in Italy and worldwide.

“Today, in solidarity with Italy, the Holy See will display flags at half-mast in mourning to express its closeness to the victims of the pandemic in Italy and in the world, to their families, and to all those who generously struggle for its end,” Holy See Press Office Director Matteo Bruni told journalists on March 31.

“Pope Francis met with the Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at the Vatican the day prior as the Italian government attempts to confront an outbreak which has led Italy to have the highest number of coronavirus mortalities in the world.

“More than 11,500 people have died of COVID-19 in Italy after a total of 101,739 people have been documented by the Italian Ministry of Health as infected with the coronavirus. Throughout the world, more than 37,800 people have died, according to Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center.

“Italy was the first country outside of China to implement a mandatory lockdown in response to the coronavirus outbreak. Conte announced the lockdown on March 9, and has since said that the national quarantine will be extended beyond the original April 3 deadline.

“The Italian government has suspended all public religious gatherings, including funerals, throughout the country, and all restaurants, schools, and non-essential businesses remain closed.

“Pope Francis also met with the mayor of Rome Virginia Raggi on March 28 at the Vatican. The Holy See did not release any further details about either of the private meetings.

“Lazio, the Italian region in which Rome is located, has had 2,914 documented cases of COVID-19, including Rome’s vicar general, Cardinal Angelo De Donatis.

“There have been six coronavirus cases connected to Vatican City. The Holy See has tested at least 170 employees for COVID-19, according to the Holy See Press Office, which confirmed that Pope Francis does not have the coronavirus on March 28.

“Vatican liturgies for Holy Week and Easter will take place without the presence of people this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, and will be broadcast live for those quarantined at home.”

Profile:

At his website John reveals. “I am John the apostle from the Bible and I am here for Jesus' Second Coming to Galilee on September 19, 2022. I was born again on October 24, 1982. God spoke to me from the fiery cloud on November 16, 1982. I saw the dazzling light of God’s Glory on January 7, 1983. I received three dreams of Jesus' Second Coming on October 19, 1983, June 21, 1984, and October 19, 1984. Jesus indwelled me and sang at Amity Church on April 14, 1985. Jesus called me to Galilee to write the book ‘Is Your Church Heavenly?’ on January 16, 2005. I saw heaven open beside the Sea of Galilee on January 25, 2005. God revealed to me that Jesus was born on September 19, 03 BC in a dream on August 19, 2017. I bleed from my stigmata on Father’s Day June 17, 2018. During Holy Week of 2019, Jesus gave me Words of Warning for Christian Churches. On April 3, 2020, Christ called me to proclaim this message: ‘BE READY! BE READY! BE READY! Brothers and Sisters in Christ: BE READY for Jesus' return to Galilee on September 19, 2022. BE READY for Jesus’ Second Coming at the Dazzling Light Website.’"

How To Move From Tears To Action During The Covid-19 Pandemic - New Video By Award Winning Selfie Filmmaker And Positive Psychologist Barbara Becker Holstein

Dr. Holstein is an award winning Selfie Filmmaker, Positive Psychologist and podcaster who helps us overcome anxiety and alienation through multiple media channels.

Traditional forms of media now attempt to operate in difficult and very strange times. The pandemic has forced all kinds of traditional media institutions to broadcast from living rooms in the host's home of all places. Politicians now have live feeds from their basements or home offices. Soap operas? Game shows? Who could have imagined this or seen this coming?

Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, some years ago, saw the potential to produce video from home and feed it worldwide. She turned her vision into a group of selfie films and videos that have been shown in or have received awards from over 90 film festivals. Dr. Holstein recently released a video entitled "From Tears To Action During The Pandemic." In the video she offers tips, ideas and advice on how we can turn adversity into an opportunity to bring families closer together. The new video was filmed - not surprisingly - from her home. It can be found at https://vimeo.com/413615734.

"It all started with me taking selfie photos of myself on my smartphone on a vacation, as my husband read his latest mystery novel," Dr. Holstein stated. "An Aha moment came as I realized that from this time (about 7 years ago) forward, people would be able to create photography and filmmaking in ways never imagined.

"Aside from visual personal diaries I soon had an opportunity to turn one of my books for girls into a selfie film. In this film, the actress, Cassidy Teracciano, based on my book, 'The Truth, Diary of a Gutsy Tween', did her own filming of all the main scenes using her smartphone. The results were stunning. The film, titled ‘The Truth, A Short Film’ went on to win awards, be in many film festivals, and now is being picked up, along with many of my other selfie films by Meridien Distributors.

"What made this and my later films so amazing was the intensity provided by allowing the actress to become her own filmmaker. I believe that one of the results of the pandemic will be a permanent allowing of all of us to reach out from our basements or living rooms and share in an intimacy of connection and wisdom that more formal rules and regulations about how cinematography should work never allowed.

"For me, as a psychologist and filmmaker, I will continue to do podcasts from my home, have guests on the shows from their homes, and move on in my filmmaking to further films that utilize actors handling much of their own filming. Yes, the best is yet to come.”

Dr. Holstein recently created The Selfie Showcase, a new project emerging from The Selfie Project, that allows young people to voice their opinions on subjects that matter to young people. She is now accepting submissions from the public for the "Selfie Showcase" and is actively seeking change-makers and mental health professionals to appear on her monthly video podcast.

The Selfie Showcase allows kids, teens, and young adults ages 13 to 18 to candidly express their concerns, worries, observations and possible solutions by creating selfies or selfie films around important subjects, using a smartphone. Dr. Holstein's mission is to help rectify, in a number of ways, some of the issues young people face by giving them a chance to engage with others in meaningful ways about the anxiety and stress they must grapple with constantly.

Selected participants may appear on the Selfie Project Channel, available on Youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC3uaOTcYF70z5CpBh11VoUQ. They will also appear in the Selfie Showcase on SelfieFilmmakers.com. They will receive a certificate of merit, and may be invited to be on Holstein's monthly podcast or perhaps be a part of her next film. Full details, rules for submission and helpful hints can be accessed at the Selfie Filmmakers site at http://www.selfiefilmmakers.com/instructions.

Dr. Holstein's unique Selfie Films have taken a large number of awards and have been shown in many film festivals and competitions. Most notable among these are:

The Selfie Project - Accepted at 20 film festivals or film competitions

Conflict And A Bit Of Magic: A Coming Of Age Selfie Film - Accepted at 19 film festivals or film competitions

Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction: A Coming Of Age Selfie Film - Accepted at 16 film festivals or film competitions. Also the song ‘Truths Change and Still Remain’ won an award at the Florence film Festival.

Secrets: A Coming Of Age Selfie Film - Accepted at 9 film festivals or film competitions

Lockdown - Accepted at 14 film festivals or film competitions

The Truth: A Short Film - Accepted at 8 film festivals or film competitions

Falling in Love, A Coming of Age, Selfie Film-Accepted at 13 film festivals or film competitions. The Song from this film won an award for the best Pop Song of 2016 at the Garden State Film Festival.

'Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction, A Coming Of Age Selfie Film', and 'The Selfie Project' both directed and created by Dr. Holstein, was shown in Manhattan on February 26 in the Anthology Building as part of the NewFilmmakers Special Program on Women Filmmakers.

Holstein's podcast series is actively seeking change-makers and visionaries to appear on her monthly podcast. Dr. Holstein hopes to feature members of traditional media, mental health professionals and educators who can make a real difference in the lives of young people. Many of the podcasts feature young people - to give them a voice regarding their concerns and their solutions. Guests, if accepted, can arrange to appear by contacting Dr. Holstein directly.

Dr. Holstein also makes a number of her books and films available to be used as fundraising tools. She requests that any verified charitable organization interested in raising funds contact her via email.
