"My name is Shelley Zwingli. My life was transformed during a 44-hour period in 2013 when my soul teetered between the physical and heavenly realms. During that...experience I made a promise to God...that if I was allowed to stay here in this earthly realm I would share my experience...with as many people as possible..."With that, farm wife and self-proclaimed "ordinary woman" Shelley Zwingli begins her story of an experience so terrifying and joyous that it changed her life forever. In Volcanoes, the first volume of what will be a three-part series, Volcanoes, Butterflies & Jesus: The extraordinary visions of an ordinary woman, Zwingli describes her near death experience, and the 44 consecutive hours of extraordinary waking visions that followed. In future volumes, she will share the stories of others, and provide strategies for seeing the divine in the world around us. Heaven is very close, she assures us. She describes the visions with her narrative, the witnessing of her family, and her own paintings and poems. Intended in particular for those who have lost loved ones, or are fearful of what comes after their own passing, Zwingli gives hope as someone who has been given the sacred gift of glimpsing the other side.
