Profound New Book Takes Readers on Heavenly Voyage to Inner Peace

St. Louis, MO, November 01, 2008 --( Sometimes it takes losing everything to gain what really matters. And no one knows this better than first-time author Lisa Reed, who reveals how upheaval and trauma became blessings in disguise in her new book, Divinely Blessed, A Journey of Light, published by Outskirts Press.

Lisa Reed seemed to have it all: a high-powered career, a beautiful family, and a luxurious lifestyle. This former welfare mom had found true success – but little true happiness. Then tragedy struck, and a boating accident left Lisa with injuries so severe that she was not expected to live. Twenty-eight days later, she emerged from a coma, and her doctors called it a miracle. What followed next turned Lisa’s story into a case study for anyone who has let the material world get in the way of spiritual happiness.

After the near-death experience, Lisa was infused with new revelations that she was compelled to share. “As I lay in my hospital bed in the rehabilitation center, I started receiving messages from a higher source that I believe is God,” she stated. “I was told that I survived my ordeal because I had a message to tell the world.” In Divinely Blessed, Lisa shows us how to recognize divine intervention by exploring how heavenly guidance appeared throughout her own troubled young adulthood. The result is an engaging and eye-opening look at the myriad ways in which God cares for us all.

“Divinely Blessed is a must read for anyone who is living in the fast lane. As a successful businesswoman, Lisa Reed had created a life of luxury for her family, but a tragic near-death experience caused her to lose it all. What Lisa gained from the experience is the spiritual knowledge that there is nothing to fear in life or death. Lisa is here to teach her message to the world.”
