What can I say? I’m blogging about A Glimpse Of Heaven by Dr. Glen Hepker, because I’m impressed with the simplicity and beauty in this eloquently written book that holds a blueprint to improving your life and mine.

First, I have to share the fact that Dr. Hepker possesses the credibility needed to write this categorical type of health and wellness book. He holds doctorate degrees in psychology and health/wellness arts, and has a fascinating biography that can be found on Amazon at his author page. I highly recommend taking a look at his compelling lifework and professions.

Dr. Hepker’s ideas and thoughts are very much influenced by The Ancient School of Thought, Ming Chia, which emphasizes taking true responsibility of one’s own health, life and well-being. If you simply take a look at the chapter titles, you can get a good feel for the basic yet brilliant ideas this book embraces. Here a few of the themes comprised within them: True Responsibility of Healthful Interaction, The Same Boat Theory, The Theory of Lightness, True Appreciation of the Miracle of the Moment, True Effort, The True Responsibility of Supporting Others, True Faith and the Three Portents, True Happiness: A Glimpse of Heaven, and so much more!

Well, now that you know a few of the nuts and bolts of some of the chapter titles, let me explain further why this is an astounding self help book for me and you: because it doesn’t matter what background you come from. By that, I mean your culture, traditions, beliefs, faith and so on. This book complements and doesn’t take the place of what any of us believe. It plainly and directly tells us how to be happy and take responsibility for our well-being. 

One commandment or phrase or whatever you may call it is: treat others as you want to be treated. That idea is a shroud that blankets all of us. A major part of our own happiness comes from the way we treat ourselves and others, which should be with respect, kindness and love. Sometimes it’s difficult to carry that out, because nobody is perfect. However, we can try to evolve into the best people possible, people with a vision and purpose, and we can do that by asking ourselves honest questions. We all want to be happy, so let’s take true responsibility of our lives and achieve health and well-being through our efforts!

Do I have you curious for more? I hope so. And if I do, please take more than a glimpse of this profound book on Amazon at the following link:

And, of course, if you took the time to stop by and read this, I am, without a doubt, grateful, appreciative and wishing you the best for a happy, healthy life!

Everybody has realistic dreams, ones that start with a seed in the heart, are watered, then grow. Well...I finally published my dream, my young adult novel entitled Username: Bladen. The idea to write it literally struck me in the darkness of the night. I began this project not too long ago, though now it feels like forever. This book, in its original manuscript form, meandered down a typical publishing path in many ways, until it recently settled (Yay!) on the shelves of cyberspace. Soon, I hope it will find a happy home on the shelves of many book lovers, in a real home not just a virtual one. After all who doesn't like to see their dreams come true? Today, with the technological advances that we enjoy, dreams of publishing are well within a writer's grasp. Every mom, much to their chagrin, experiences sleepless nights. With six kids, I honestly can't remember the last time I slept through the night. Typically, when I wake up and can't fall back to sleep, I think too much about things, meditate, or pray. One night as I was praying, the plot for Username: Bladen literally flooded my thoughts. I got so excited about it that I decided to sit down and write and write and write. I spent a lot of time learning about publishing. I joined forums and writers' groups. When I finished my manuscript, I entered it into The Sandy Writing contest, which was a terrific learning experience. I didn't win, but one judge loved my story and gave me almost a perfect score. That gave me a lot of encouragement. I also queried it a little, and am amazed by how much I learned and loved the process. I know nobody likes rejection letters, but I appreciated the personal letters I received from agents that gave me insight into why they rejected my manuscript. Then finally, after I learned that publishers don't have a lot of shelf room for young adult novels with a male protagonist, I decided to stop querying and publish through Westbow. I found an extremely talented editor, and rather quickly finished the process of publishing my book. I couldn't be happier with the final result. If anyone has a story to tell, are willing to be diligent, and have a dream to be a published author, you can do it! Believe in yourself and make your dream come true!
