Blessings beloved ones,
A few days ago, I, “a soul”, had the joy of being reminded of an author whose inspirational books were instrumental to deepening my faith in the early years of my return to the Catholic Church (early 2000’s). So, I am doing this brief blog post because I want to share her works with followers of this blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, whom I think would cherish her stories as much I did when I was first read them.
The author’s name is Joan Wester Anderson and she is a practicing Catholic who is very dedicated to her family (husband, children and grandchildren). She has been a Christian author for over 30 years and she is known as the “Angel Lady” as she first popularized the idea of angels in the culture by writing real-life stories about them as well as miracles from Heaven in the 1990s.
The eight books that Joan is most famous for writing about angels and heavenly miracles are published by Loyola Press. They can all be found on this webpage: https://store.loyolapress.com/search?keywords=joan%20anderson In the books, Joan only shares true angel and miracle stories that have been sent to her through the years that are compatible with traditional Christian teachings.
I believe that Heaven reawakened me to her authorship, because today, many books that discuss angels are written from an New Age/occult or quasi (fake)-Christian perspective — a viewpoint that does not fit at all with authentic Christianity.
However, the existence of the holy angels of Heaven is very real and also the reliable true stories about them can be very comforting and calming, especially, now, during this time of great uncertainty in the world and quickening pace of fulfillment of both ancient and modern prophecies. So, I want to re-share Joan’s books to a potentially new audience through my blog, MaryRefugeOfSouls, so you all can be inspired, too, by our dearly beloved heavenly friends.
Finally, I want to suggest that for those who have a permanent refuge, that you might want to consider obtaining physical copies of Joan’s books for the older children and teenagers. As the stories in the books are appropriate for them to read, too, and I think that they will generally help the people in adjusting to a difficult life that we all will be soon called to live by Our Lord. I believe that Joan’s books will be a welcome addition in helping to educate the people on the realities of our faith and God’s enduring Love for us during the time at the refuges.
I love you.
