There is a certain calmness I felt as I read Lillie’s first book, and this one is no different. Each chapter of “The White Light of Grace: Reflections on the Life of a Spiritual Intuitive,” was a glimpse into her life, and the many trials and tribulations she experienced along the way. Though each chapter of the book was well written and intense; there were two chapters that really stuck with me personally. In “The Origins of Grace” she spoke of the loving relationship shared with her grandmother Situ (Arabic for Grandmother), who inspired her to believe… to have faith… and to pass the legacy on to the next generation. Lillie believed that this has been a blessing on her family to have these gifts. I was raised by my grandmother and thought about the foundation she laid for me growing up. She saved me and gave me a normal life. Her dedication, love and wisdom was the cornerstone in my life as a woman, wife, mother, and grandmother. In “First Tour of Duty” she talked about the moment she was leaving to get into her partner’s patrol car, when her dad called her back to give her a pep talk. His words were powerful and full of meaning that would resonate throughout her life. I visualized what it must have felt like having a father who not only loved and prayed over his children, but gave them advice that would resonate throughout their lives. Since I have very little contact nor a relationship with my own father, I relished the words of wisdom Lillie’s father bestowed upon her. How I would’ve savored a bond like that with my own father. As a Christian woman, I believe that not only are Angels are among us, but are messengers from God. This book is a must read if you are a believer of Angels and divine beings.

I loved this book! In reading "In the White Light of Grace" it struck me how much Lillie has pushed herself to grow. She became a police officer at a fairly young age and at a time when not many women were doing such a thing. My favorite story is when she responded to an emergency call for a domestic situation. She found a woman in the home, assaulted and alone. She interviewed her and as Lillie was walking out and onto the porch, the woman's husband came walking around the corner. Here's what she says: "I knew instinctively that he must be the woman's husband. No words were necessary. His manner and her reaction to his presence said it all. Within seconds, he began screaming obscenities. He was furious at her for calling the police. "Leave the premises or I will arrest you!" I shouted. Without any warning, the man lunged at me and yelled, "Yeah, you and what army?" Before I had time to gather my thoughts, I grabbed him and shoved him over the front porch rail. He landed facedown on the ground. I ran down and managed to cuff him with one swift sweep of the hand. As I lifted him from the ground, a patrol car pulled up along the curb and an officer I did not recognize asked me, "Are you okay? Where is your backup?" Of course Lillie did not have a back up. She did it all by herself. There were some men sitting across the street, watching the whole thing. All at once they started clapping and singing, "I am woman, hear me roar." GO LILLIE! If you believe in angels, this is the book for you. Lillie details her early and repeated encounters with Archangel Michael in many chapters of the book. In her childhood she referred to him as the "Blue Man with wings." She was reprimanded about her sightings and so stopped sharing them with others. But she did not stop believing and always felt herself channeled to the angels. "It seemed as if I had an energy that flowed to me, through me, and permeated every aspect of my being. And although my youthful mind was not able to fully comprehend angelic channeling, I was astute enough to recognize that something amazing was transpiring." Lillie loved to retreat to her bedroom to write and dream of angels. In her chapter "The Origins of Grace", she talks lovingly of her grandmother Situ (Arabic for grandmother) who encouraged her to believe and have faith. Situ encouraged her to pass this birthright on to the next generation. Lillie believes this has been a blessing on her family to have these gifts. I preferred to read Lillie's book slowly and savor it, rather than hurry through it. It reads like a spiritual reference guide, encouraging the reader to think of their own experiences and how to live a more openly spiritual life. The book is beautifully written and is a lovely example for me as I move forward on my writing journey. Other chapters contain insight into Lillie's recovery from PTSD, her health issues, male relationship struggles, mother daughter angst, and deep sharing about her love for her father. "As I look back on my life, I am amazed at the twists and turns it has taken. In retrospect, I can see that it has been filled with time of pain and sorrow mixed with moments of sheer joy. Each chapter has moved my life towards surrender and grace." If you love angels and books on spirituality, you will love this book.
