7-Year-Old Publishes Book About Her Near-Death Experience

Feb 01

Ari Hallmark was 6 years old last year when an EF-4 tornado hit Ruth killing five members of her family, but she vividly remembers the horror and destruction. She remembers cows flying through the air, trucks hitting the house, glass breaking all around her. And she remembers taking a quick trip to Heaven. Ari tells her story in a new book she co-authored…

All About The Alex Malarkey – ‘The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven’ – Controversy (Updated)

Jan 25

Alex Malarkey spent two months in a coma and woke up paralyzed. But his description of what happened in between offered a compelling tale of life after death, including visions of angels and meeting Jesus. Published on 2010, “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven” became a bestseller — one billed as a description of “miracles, angels, and life beyond this world”. But last week, following persistent rumors, Alex, now 16, revealed that the detail in the book was false: “I did not die. I did not go to Heaven. I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention…”

NDEs & Hell (Updated)

NDEs & Hell (Updated)

Jan 05

“As with heaven, there are various hell realms witnessed by near-death experiencers. We can even see many manifestations of hell right here in the physical realm. There are people in prison, in the Bahamas, in mental institutions, universities, skid row, palaces, crack houses, all kinds of life situations. While hell realms can be seen outside all around the world as a manifestation of an inner hell within humans, hell realms in the spirit world are an even greater manifestation of inner hell within humans. Near-death accounts show that the hell realms in the spirit world are actually the spiritual/mental manifestations of spiritual conditions that humans create within themselves while on Earth.”

— NDE Researcher Kevin Williams

This book considers a wide range of experiences of dying patients that Dr. Sartori has encountered during her nursing career.

Oct 18

Lee Thornton’s book is an autobiographical account of how her life-changing encounter during a near-death experience helped guide her on a path of healing. An upbringing that included childhood sexual abuse and deception left her battling depression and illness on her quest for wholeness. She recounts growing up as the daughter of a distinguished U.S. diplomat in a world where respectable appearances concealed the reality of underlying secrets, violation, duplicity and manipulation. In the course of going through a divorce, long separations from her son, struggles with unresolved family issues, and trying to heal from a chronic illness, she learns universal lessons about love, self-acceptance, and forgiveness that help her win her hard-fought battle for wholeness, authenticity, and the realization of her purpose. She hopes that sharing her story helps others who have suffered similar adversities or are seeking self-acceptance and greater fulfillment…

New Book: ‘The FBI-CIA-UFO Connection’

New Book: ‘The FBI-CIA-UFO Connection’

Sep 10

This book goes inside the real X-Files. Not only have the FBI and CIA investigated UFOs, but both agencies have actively tried to conceal that fact from the public. This book proves it. These agencies collected information which, when combined with evidence collected by Air Force Intelligence, proves that at least some UFOs are interplanetary craft. Furthermore, top Air Force officials knew this over sixty years ago and withheld (covered up?) this information from the American people. Written by Dr. Bruce Maccabee, one of the most respected voices in UFO research, this is a riveting page-turner, packed with information. It tells the real story of why America’s leading intelligence agencies have been genuinely concerned about UFOs, and why the “problem of UFOs” is unlikely to go away any time soon…

Quote: William Martin

Jun 08

Make the Ordinary Come Alive
Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is a way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples, and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.
