I never envisioned in my wildest imagination, a life like the one I have. Who creates a life like this on two continents? Who transforms their reality, business, and life, multiple times in only a few years? Who sticks around when the unimaginable happens right after you meet someone?
Jennifer Holik chose a new path in June 2012 when she moved out with her boys and filed for divorce. She did not expect that six months later, when she acknowledged her spiritual gifts, her entire life would transform. Several dead guys, primarily World War I and World War II service members, had already shown up in Jennifer’s world. Many others entered her life at the exact moment they were required. Listening to their whispers, Jennifer followed the energy and created a life and business no one she knew had dared to create.
Travel through time and space, across the ocean, and through Europe, where love knows no boundaries. On this journey, Jennifer explores the choices she made and lessons she learned, to create a life she never dreamed possible. Discover how the dead guys she brought home guided her life, helped her grow and change, brought healing to their own families, and introduced her to her Knight in Shining Armor. Not all fairy tales have a happy ending. Or do they? A month after they met, the Knight and his Lady experienced a life altering event they never expected, that changed everything. This is a story written in two parts, a journey through time and space with her soldiers and a caregiver story, woven together in love.
This book has two primary themes: choice and creating
your life. Within those themes I tell two primary stories. One of my
initial choice to end my marriage and create my business and life in a
different way. This led to my traveling in the footsteps of a WWII
family member who died in service in Europe. That led to meeting the man
who would be my husband.
The second story is about the choice I made when I met this man and the health issues that followed. I discuss the good, bad, and ugly about my caregiving journey in this part, along with the choices I made to create my life even amidst difficult times.
Readers will receive what calls to their heart and soul as they read the book. I have discovered that many readers receive more from one part of the book, rather than the whole.
Jennifer’s story is one of transformation, strength, choice, a deep desire to heal my soul no matter what it takes, self-love, awareness, and a continuous exploration of the past to create a better present and future.
What People Say on Amazon:
DebS5.0 out of 5 starsVery open, honest & relevant for caregivers, and for anyone writing a military serviceman’s story.
May 5, 2019This book was included in materials offered as part of the “Finding The Answers Journey, Master Class” offered by Jennifer Holik in her WWII Research Writing Group. When I opened the file, my intent was to read a few pages per day, but once I got started I finished it in one sitting. I wondered why a young lady was driven to write her memoir, but I found out she has a lot of insight and healing words to share. Her openness about her spirituality and her caregiver experience is amazing to me. Jennifer’s comments about how and why we research our family’s military history and why we should be writing their story really hit home with me.
Jennifer Holik is very open and honest about her experiences as a divorced single mother, entrepreneur, and the recent marriage to a man she fell in love with in Europe who was then diagnosed with cancer. Because her passion is helping families research what happened to their loved ones who served in the military, Jennifer is working with a lot of emotional situations. She uses her array of challenges, peaks, and valleys as a caregiver, mother, and entrepreneur to formulate a list of lessons learned. Having some caregiving experience, I can agree with her recommendations. I read lots of self-help books from both Christian and secular authors. Jennifer’s journey and perspective is from a non-traditional spiritual point of view. However, her lessons learned are very helpful no matter what perspective you are coming from. If like authors who are raw, gritty, and honest about dealing with adversity and emotions, this book should be high on your reading list.
