After surviving a childhood fraught with loss and despair that made him feel spiritually confused and disconnected from God, Lee Breitkreutz allowed further devastating incidents and struggles to drive him away from the Church and religion altogether, seemingly forever. Then, a series of three miracles-each occurring at crucial times in his life-triggered an unexpected spiritual life to evolve. But when he became confined to a hospital room, facing an uncertain future, he received the most defining message of all: a near-death experience that proved to him beyond a doubt that God exists. Humbly believing he was chosen for a reason to receive this gift, he accepted the call to be a messenger of God's words to him and made it his mission to get well, finally understanding that all of his assumed isolated life events were actually connected by a common thread of providence. No matter your faith or spiritual path-or even your lack of connection to a divine presence-Lee's inspiring story will move you, even assure you, that there is indeed abundant love and hope for all of us as God's beloved children.
Life's challenges become more difficult with age, especially those older than 60 years of age who I'll call "seniors." These challenges include health issues, moving, getting good medical care, caregiving, and coping with various forms of stress. The chapters herein discuss these problems including personal experiences with the medical and health care systems, experiences as a caregiver, and the stress caused by all of the political conflicts and scandals as the world around us is changing at an accelerating pace. These stresses are particularly difficult for seniors. The honesty and trust of people, including government and medical personnel, lawyers, and the public in general becomes overwhelming at times when it seems that the situations are getting worse, and not being resolved. It is hoped that the information presented herein will help others when faced with similar issues.
