Hey Friends!
I would like to extend my support for many of my fellow Next Top Spiritual Author contestants, so here is another list. I am a busy mother of two little ones and have not had the opportunity to make many connections in the contest, so I have used a compiled list from my friend and fellow NTSA contestant Andrea Hylen who I met through a couple on line spiritual energy work groups we were in together. The list below is written in her words and are friends she’s met through various routs. I do not know these people personally but many of them have wonderful ideas and I believe each and every one of us has a powerful gift to share with humanity! THAT is a movement I want to support as much as possible!! -

Andrea Hylen’s book is Open to Inspiration: The summer a woman discovered herself with a teenage daughter and the Jonas Brothers on a 10,000 mile road trip. -

Of course, If you have not had the chance yet, be sure to vote for me! I need YOUR vote to make it to the next round! Many of you have already read my first chapter and called for MORE MORE MORE! This may be the opportunity I have been hoping for! Please vote for me and Flashpoint @ Thank you! With love -J
