Angels in Connecticut is a Collection of Inspiring Stories

Books and stories about angels reach into our hearts and offer readers comfort during challenging times.

Angel books also inspire us to view life’s synchronicities as more than mere coincidence.

Angels in Connecticut is a self-published gem (CreateSpace) written by Susan Pettella, a resident of the state of Connecticut. Her intention in writing this little treasure of a book was to help others believe in a higher power and in divine intervention.

Stories About Angels

Angel Art ImageIn Part 1—The Simple Truth About Angels, Pettella shares ways for readers to open their intention in order to begin seeing and knowing the angels that are around. She feels signs are everywhere. One example I really connected with was on how animals in nature can show up at the perfect moment and offer messages of hope or insight.

Part 2—Letters contains the majority of the book’s content, offering a wide range of stories from those who submitted stories of their first-hand about angels and their experiences of divine intervention.
A couple stories include pictures of angels seen by the naked eye.

One story shares that an angel image appeared on a developed photo of an infant taken while in her high chair.  A small angel is clearly visible above the child. The grandmother didn’t notice the small floating angel till she later viewed the photo.

How to Connect with Your Angels

There is such a wide range of stories. Some are of angels that watch over loved ones, or appear from nowhere just to show their smiling faces. The book includes stories of angels that offer protection, and messages of hope, love, and inspiration.

Angels in Connecticut closes with Part 3 offering readers a meditation to assist in connecting with their guardian angel and other angels around them. It includes tips on how journaling can facilitate connecting to one’s higher insights and power.

Angels in Connecticut Book CoverThis is a very sweet book for those with religious faith and those who view spirituality as a divine order, light, or intelligence. Pettella’s intention embraces everyone who is curious about the presence of angels or would like greater evidence to believe in a higher power. The large collection of angel stories certainly offers any reader evidence that angels have and are touching people’s lives every day. Angels in Connecticut is a perfect book to have on hand to give someone who is going through challenging times. It is also a delightful reminder to be open to trusting your heart, intuition, and life’s mysterious coincidences.

The 7 Great Prayers for a Lifetime of Hope and Blessings

“The 7 Great Prayers for a Lifetime of Hope and Blessings” by Paul and Tracey McManus introduces readers to the idea of embodying faith and gratitude.

Married couple Paul and Tracey worked collaboratively to produce this book.

As thoughtfully documented in the text the authors drew inspiration from personal experiences and their own relationships with God when writing the book.

They write to encourage others to maintain an ever thankful approach to life even when facing some of their most difficult challenges.

As the title implies, the book focuses on seven unique and heartfelt prayers. Additionally, the writers pepper the text with touching personal anecdotes.

Learning through Experience and Prayer

Connecting with PrayerEach of the seven prayers touches upon the subjects of love, thankfulness, faith, and intention.

Within the book, the McManuses first invite readers to learn more about their own lives, opening up about difficulties they have overcome. These autobiographical accounts set the stage for the themes within the book.

Next readers move on to learn the different prayers, and how to adapt each verse to their own unique situations within the world.

Finally, the authors supply their audience with a journal and 21 day plan for truly making the prayers a physical part of everyday life.

A Journal Invites Hands-On Involvement

The journal is located at the rear of the book, and includes a day by day guide to completing the 21 day challenge. This journal serves the readers as an invaluable resource to accompany the lessons within the text.

Through the journal, readers have the opportunity to play an active role in the prayer challenge presented by Paul and Tracey. After the 21 days, readers should begin noticing the blessings they have welcomed into their lives through their affirmative graces and attitudes.

Additionally, after making an honest effort over the course of the three weeks the prayers become more routine and perhaps even lifelong habits.

Offering further support, the authors provide journal refills from their website to encourage readers to maintain their prayer practice. Tracey and Paul’s authentic investment in the well-being of their readers is both touching and inspiring.

Affirmative Prayers to God

A notable difference in Paul and Tracey’s book, as compared to other personal growth books on the market, lies in their sincere faith in God. While many other books may focus on similar themes, they lack the strong spiritual faith of Paul and Tracey.

The 7 Great Prayers BookCoverTo the McManus couple God is not only all-powerful, but also friendly and inviting. Through their book, they introduce others to this concept of God, and remind readers that the tried and true method of prayer really works for improving one’s quality of life.

Between the heartfelt stories and thoughtful prayer advice, readers can expect an enjoyable and moving read from “The 7 Great Prayers for a Lifetime of Hope and Blessings.”

The words and resources from Paul and Tracey McManus feel truly heartfelt and supportive. Readers are left with an enthusiasm for embracing a lifestyle of gratitude and taking joy in the many gifts of the world.

If you are more inclined to describe God as universal love, divine light, infinite wisdom or some other word, you can easily do so and still enjoy the powerful intention to connect and empower your life through positive intention and trust in a higher power.
