About Pami Woodruff
Hi, I'm Pami Woodruff - thanks for stopping by to learn more about me.
My author interview for "365 Moments of Grace" is below. Copy and paste this short-link to purchase my book: http://amzn.to/28K7KBJ Thanks!
**Please share more about yourself.**
I am a bit of a study in opposites - a former homeschooling stay-at-home mom who ended up a working single mom most of my kids' lives; a woman who doesn't believe in divorce who got divorced; and a creative free spirit who drudged for years at a desk job before calling it quits earlier this year.
**Why did you decide to join as a contributing author in our book?**
I have always loved to write - that creative spirit I mentioned earlier - and have a dream of being a published author. I plan to write books: both shorter, non-fiction, how-to books, and longer, fictional, novels. My first novel is midway through the first revision right now. But making that transition from wannabe author to published author is scary. Taking part in a compilation book is easier, and, it turns out, lots of fun!
**What do you hope each reader will take into their heart after reading our book?**
The very different but real ways that God (or Spirit/the Divine/however you label it/Him) speaks to us in our everyday lives, all the time. We need to learn to listen more.
**How do you define Grace?**
The textbook answer I learned in church is "unmerited favor" - but as I've matured, it is that and so much more! It is God (the Divine, etc.) reaching down into our lives and making Himself known in some small way.
**What's one way Grace shows up in your life?**
Bringing the right ideas and opportunities into my life when I'm ready for them...and not necessarily when I start looking for them! Usually I am not ready yet when I start looking. At the right time, though, the right thing shows up, sometimes nearly miraculously!
**What's your FB page and website?**
My Facebook page is facebook.com/TheSchoolofLostArts, and I run Make-It Challenges pretty much monthly on the corresponding group, Creating With the Lost Arts, teaching long-forgotten skills and crafts that used to be common.
The main website is TheSchoolofLostArts.com, and I have branded my teaching videos as Make It With Pam. I offer pre-recorded courses, group classes online, and 1:1 lessons in everything from sewing and knitting to candle making and food preservation!
In this book, over 250 beautiful souls share such life-changing moments - experiences that inspired, uplifted, shook us to our core, got us back on track (or onto a new track altogether), and led us toward our true selves.
The 365 inspiring stories include:
- discovering your purpose,
-experiencing a spiritual awakening,
-leaving a job/relationship/home/religion to follow your soul's whispers,
-bravely opening up to love,
-receiving messages from beyond,
-tapping into your inner strength,
-finding the beauty and wisdom in all of life, even in the difficult moments,
-and so much more!
While the experiences themselves vary greatly, each of these moments transformed the authors and helped them shift in a positive way. These true stories (one page each - for quick inspiration!) were written with love and infused with the intention that you'll be able to discover the beauty in your own life shifts, too.
The 365 unique miracles shared in these pages include:
- near-death experiences,
- communicating with loved ones on the other side,
- healing from illness,
- a-ha moments,
- signs from the universe,
- and so much more!
While the experiences themselves vary greatly, each of these moments transformed the authors and connected them to something much bigger than themselves. These true-life stories (one page each - for quick inspiration!) were written with love and infused with the intention that you'll be on the lookout for moments of grace to show up in your own life...and that you'll be open to receiving them when they do!
