The Water Is A Blessing- a non-fiction book about my personal experiences coming out of the so called "spiritual closet". Since my near death drowning at eight years old, I've been intuitive to many things. Over the years, I had vivid dreams, premonitions, and visitations, by loved ones, making it hard for me as a Catholic to understand, exactly what I was truly experiencing, from such a young age and continuing into my adult life.
