    I see the start of a wonderful series here! Beautifully written and very visual, Judy. And nicely heartwarming!
  • Hang On To Me Mary: the timely and timeless messages from Mary on July 23, 2015

    “Hang on to Me Mary” is an enlightening and entertaining account of how Robin Hunt got in touch with her angel and changed her life. Since many of us are raised to be independent thinkers, we often find ourselves in decision-making quandaries -- I know I do! I saw myself in many of her personal anecdotes which she relates vividly and often with humor. Robin demonstrates how truly easy it is to start leaning on our angel -- and in turn, God -- to help us make the best decisions for our highest good. I am now connecting with my angel daily and decision making is becoming easier. I look forward to a sequel to “Hang on to Me Mary” to learn more ways in which Robin’s angel helps her with life’s many decisions.
