PART I, 12/19/16
At our December 10, 2016 gathering in Irvine, it’s going to be quite an emotional, yet uplifting ride listening to the story of Connie Anne Miller’s life, a mix of unspeakable circumstances and spiritual miracles, all described in living color.
As a young child, she experienced ongoing molestation by a close family member. At the same time, she was relentlessly bullied at school. Something helped her survive this – children. Children only she could see and hear, and always there to provide blessed comfort.
But she was to endure more. At 17 years of age, Connie was abducted and violently gangraped by a group of young men. During the attack, she left her body in which she was transfused and surrounded with a glorious splendor which she will describe.
Connie knew she had gone “somewhere over the line”, a different reality during a moment when her life had been in great danger.
Time had passed. There was a car accident followed by an angelic encounter. Twice she crossed the ‘bridge’ into another dimension.
Over the years, Connie’s had numerous encounters with “helpful strangers”, who have been there one moment, gone the next. These ‘Messengers’ have brought answers to questions not consciously asked, while other times, just show up to ‘check in’.
Connie lives in Lancaster, CA, and is a Pediatric Occupational Therapist. Since 1992, she’s specialized in working with children diagnosed with developmental delays, learning disabilities and especially autism.
LISTEN EVERYONE, WE’LL BE HAVING CAKE TO CELEBRATE THE SEASON AND EACH OTHER. NO OBLIGATION, BUT IF YOU’D LIKE TO BRING SOME GOODIES OR SNACKS, IT WILL MAKE THIS OCCASION THAT MUCH MORE SPECIAL.
