Embraced by the Light
Embraced by the light is about an in depth near death experience that happened in the 1970′s when author Bettie J. Edie was in the hospital recovering from surgery. Her incredible near death experience made her realize what life is all about. The book brings you the message of God’s unconditional love for all of us.
When I found this book I was having a hard time dealing with the death of a very good friend. I was deep in thought when a book fell off the top shelf of a friends bookcase and hit me on the hand. I picked it up and recognized the title from some talk show. It was Embraced by the Lightby Bettie J. Edie. I asked my friend if I could borrow the book. She said she had just finished reading it and couldn’t think of anyone who needed to read it more than me.
I read the entire book that same night. I couldn’t put it down. I woke up with a whole new outlook on life. I felt at peace for the first time in a long time. The next night I was babysitting for a friend, and before she left I told her about the book. She wanted to borrow it, but she was killed in a car accident on the way home that night. I don’t know how I would have ever gotten through such a tragedy if I had not read Embraced by the Light.
Before I read this book I was very scared of death, and now I am not afraid. When I found out I have Leukemia, this book helped me through it. I have learned so much about how to live my life and be happy. I am now more tolerant and try love my fellow man. I appreciate everything so much more. I owe all of this change to reading Embraced by the Light. I still keep a copy by my bed and read it periodically to remind myself what life is all about..
I have given copies of this book to all my children and always recommend it to anyone I know who is going through a hard time. I would recommend this b lost a loved one and having a hard time dealing with it. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs comfort. It will soothe your soul.
