 Pocket Full of Dreams: A true story of self-transformation: Overcoming abuse, poverty, and tragedy to find success, inner peace and love. David B. Burch


Edition: Paperback, which can be purchased only through his website at: $14.99

You don’t have to settle for the cards you have been dealt. Rearrange your hand and look at your options.

A mayonnaise sandwich, split three ways.  Some days, that’s all David Burch and his siblings would have to eat.  Their childhood was one of severe poverty, violence, abuse, and unbearable tragedy.
At one point he just wanted to give up….but he didn’t.
In Pocket Full of Dreams, David shares his heartbreaking but, ultimately triumphant story.  Readers will be profoundly affected by his courage and resolve—and inspired to overcome challenges they may be facing in their own lives. “Just because you weren’t
born into privilege, doesn’t mean you’re less deserving.””I hope people will understand that attitude is huge,” Burch says.  “Life is 10 percent what happens to you, and 90 percent how you react.”

Nightmares & Daydreams

by Barbara Watkins

Edition: Paperback

Price: $8.50

This review is from: Nightmares & Daydreams

Nightmares and Daydreams held me captivated from cover to cover. Suspenseful, mysterious, and enlightening – this excellent book is a page turner that held my complete attention. Word after word, page after page, I was pulled into each and every story with the desire to see what happens next. I would certainly say that Barbara Watkins ranks up there as being one of my all time favorite writers. Her wonderful stories are just as mysteriously captivating,in my opinion, as those of Alfred Hitchcock, Anne Rice, and Clive Barker. If you’ve ever read one of their novels you will certainly also enjoy anything that Barbara Watkins has written as well. Good Job Barbara – keep up the good work. I’m looking forward to reading more of your excellent writing in the near future. I rate this particular book with 5 stars A+ for sure! This is a book that I will read again and again. If you haven’t read this book yet – get yourself a copy today. If you have friends who enjoy mysteries, ghost stories, and suspense – pick up a few copies today – they will definitely thank you for it!

The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth

The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth

by Mark Fisher

Edition: Paperback

Price: $10.04

This review is from: The Instant Millionaire: A Tale of Wisdom and Wealth (Paperback)

I totally enjoyed “The Instant Millionaire” for a variety of reasons. It’s an excellent story about a young man with a logical mind who is frustrated with his current career and is always financially poor. He puts a lot of time into his career but hardly has any money left at the end of the week. He goes to borrow money from his rich Uncle who tells him that he won’t lend him any money but he will give him the address of someone who can teach him how to become a millionaire himself. Very skeptical, the young man decides to visit the Millionaire to see what he might have to say. Once the young man reaches the Estate of the Millionaire and get’s locked into his room, with no way out, the real story begins. The story itself is a page turner. The lessons you will learn can be life changing. I totally enjoyed this story! I give it 5 stars! A+

Happier than God

  • Turning Ordinary Life into an Extraordinary Experience
  • Neale Donald Walsch
  • Hampton Roads Publishing Company
  • ISBN 978-1-57174-576-7

I Highl recommend this wonderful book! It’s totally excellent and I enjoyed it fully. Heart, Mind, and Soul it’s an excellent book. The book I recommend that you get your hands on right away is, “Happier than GOD” by Neale Donald Walsch.

“Happier than God?” you ask me. “How is that possible?” Well, let me tell you that I asked the same thing when I saw the title of this book. Curiosity made me pick it up and curiosity kept me spell bound through each and every page! You will see – you will learn – that we all have the ability to be happier than God if we choose to be. But, there are techniques that you need to be aware of. This great book takes you deeper and further than any of Neale Donald Walsch’s other great books – and great they all are! This book also takes you further into understanding more about The Universal Law of Attraction and how to manifest wonderful things into your life!

In one of the chapters, I was intrigued, when I read that the word ‘Satan’ really means, “Seeing Anything As Negative!” What intrigued me most is the fact that I was personally shown this meaning about this word before I even picked up this book…before I even read this chapter! I had written this description down about the word Satan in my journal on the day that my Spirit Guide had brought it to my attention. Then low and behold, I am reading this book and there it was in black and white…the same Revelation had been given to Neale too!

I’ll say it again – the word SATAN means: Seeing Anything As Negative!

That has a lot of meaning to it indeed! Take this thought one step further and know that your ‘ego’ loves negative things and bringing negative thoughts into your mind. Next time you feel a negative thought coming on, tell your ego that you don’t choose to see anything as negative! You can make a joke out of it if you want to (why not, I always do) and say, “Back Satan…Back! Now you realize that you don’t have to be afraid of Satan or anything else. All you have to do is choose not to see anything as negative.

Okay, now I can hear some of you saying, “But Michelle…how is that possible? There are so many negative things in this world that are obviously negative. How can I not see them that way?”

Ah Ha…you will learn the answers to that in “Happier than GOD” by Neale Donald Walsch and your life will never be the same again! If you want the Truth, the whole Truth, and nothing but the Truth…pick up your copy today!

Forever Ours – Real Stories of Immortality and Living from a Forensic Pathologist

Janis Amatiuzo MD

New World Library –

ISBN 1-57731-599-5 204 pages $14.95 USA

From beginning to end, I couldn’t put this great book down. all I can say! Janis Amatuzio MD is a Forensic Pathologist who’s duty it is to bring analysis and closure to the families that want to know what their loved ones have died from, but, she does so much more than that. She is a very spiritual person who has a great interest in listening to the families tell her about the unusual and highly spiritual events that have happened to them regarding the person that they have lost. For, they have found out that they didn’t really ‘lose’ their loved one at all. I don’t want to spoil the stories for you by telling you about them here, but take my word for it…you will love this book!

I personally loved this book for all of the stories, but also because I personally had an experience like the ones written about here. As some of you know, and others of you don’t, my Father ‘moved on and forward in his spiritual journey’ in late October 1993. I remember being at Garden City Hospital, praying in the chapel that I would receive a sign that my Dad would make a smooth transition. I did receive a sign, but didn’t realize it at the time that it was happening.

I spent the night there when Dad was taken in and the next day my Mom came to the hospital and gave me a nice white sweater to change into. I went down the hall to the bathroom and changed, washed my face, and got ready for the day. When I came out of the bathroom, across the hall was an elderly man sitting in a wheel chair and he called over to me, “Nurse, oh nurse, would you please come over here and help me get my shoes on because I am going home.” I went over there, to that room (which was a two bed patient room and there was another person in the bed closest to the window, but I couldn’t see that whole person, just the bump in the sheets where his legs would be and I knew someone was there) and I smiled at the man. He looked at me with such a big smile. “I’m going home!” He said to me with a big grin. He seemed so very happy.

“Would you please help me put my shoes on?” He asked me. “Of course I will” I told him. I knelt down and put his shoes on his feet. As I was doing this, he kept on talking to me, “Oh, you are such a nice nurse and such a beautiful nurse too! I am so happy to be going home!” As he was talking and I was tying his shoes, a real nurse (or what I thought was a real nurse) stopped by the door. She was beautiful with blonde hair and a clipboard in her hand. She looked at me and said, “Honey, you don’t have to do that, I will do that if you want me to.” and I said, “No, that’s Okay, I am doing just fine here and I am enjoying talking to this wonderful man.” She smiled at me, nodded, and continued to walk down the corridor.

That is when I explained to the man that I wasn’t a nurse (he thought I was because of the white sweater and up til this point I didn’t explain that I wasn’t because I just wanted to help him out with his shoes) but that I am a daughter and my Father was down the hall and that he is a very sick man. He then went on in the same tone of voice, “Oh my, I wish I had a beautiful daughter like you. You are so wonderful, you are so special, you are just a darling beautiful soul.” He kept going on and on. He took my hand and told me, “Don’t worry about your Dad. Everything will be just fine.”

I gave him a big hug and told him that I had to go and check on my Dad. He kept smiling at me with this great glow that made me feel so wonderful inside. I smiled back at him and said, “You have a wonderful day and I am so glad that you are going home.”

I left the room and walked down to my Dad’s room. That’s when my Mom’s friend Luanne grabbed me and said, “Michelle, where were you…your Dad just passed away!”

I went into my Dad’s room and everyone was there. They were all sad and full of sorrow. I could feel the depression in the room, but, in my heart I still felt happy and joyful since talking to the old man down the hall. I went up to my Dad and touched his hand. I felt his peace. I felt no pain.

I had this incredible urge to go back down the hall and find that old man again and tell him what had just happened. I excused myself from my family and went back down the hall, but, when I got to that room…it was empty! The lights were off and the room was clean. There was no other patient in the room either. Hmmm…I thought. Okay, well, the man can’t be far away. Maybe he is down in the lobby…I am going to find out. So, I went to the nurses station and looked for the blonde nurse, but she was no where to be found. I asked one of the nurses, “Do you know where the blonde nurse is that works on this floor…you know…the one with the clipboard?” She looked at me funny and said, “Honey, there are no blondes that work on this floor.” Hmmm…Okay…my logical mind is sill working here, I will just ask her where the man went. So, I looked at her and said, “Okay, do you know where the man is that was in that room across from the bathroom there?” and I pointed to the room. She looked at me in an even more bizarre way now and said, “Honey, I don’t know what you are talking about. We haven’t used that room in over 3 days.”

I was stunned. Time seemed very surreal to me. I felt in a daze. Nothing made sense. Where had that man gone? I talked with him. I put on his shoes and gave him a kiss on his cheek and he kissed me back in the same way! And…what about the nurse?

I believe with my whole heart that I had an Angelic experience. I believe that my Dad gave me his message that he was happy to be “Going Home.” I believe that Dad was telling me all of the things that he loved about me through the apparition of this old man. Dad knew that I love elderly people. That Grandma’s and Grandpa’s are very loving and I am always attracted to them. This my Dad would know. And, I finally knew, that Dad made his peaceful transition.

Now…read “Forever Ours” by Janis Amatuzio MD. Filled with many personal stories…like mine..things will begin to really make sense to you. Get your own copy soon. I promise you will love it too! ~ Michelle

    I love that story, Michelle, you have told it to me once and I never forgot it. I love books about people’s transitions, it is so up lifting to me. My dad passed it will be 4 years ago on June 20th. I remember he passed the day after Father’s day that year. I kept praying, please god, don’t take him on Father’s day and it didn’t happen until the next morning. Another great book about hospice patients’ stories, written by a hospice nurse is called, ” Final Gifts”.
    I truly loved that book and it seems similar to this book which I will be getting in near future.

    ps.. the story you told me about your dad was the very first night we met online
