Pray and Obey

PRAY AND OBEY

ARE YOU TALKIING TO ME, GOD?

“Doesn’t everyone hear from God when they pray?” Pray and Obey: Are You Talking to Me, God? discusses how you can be a better listener when turning to God for help and answers. After being struck by a truck at the tender age of eight years old, author Sheri Ann Stanley began her journey with God. After many years of struggling with complications arising from this near-death experience, she decided to reaffirm her Faith and redirect all her focus to God.

In this book, Sheri Ann Stanley takes an open and unashamed approach to helping people seek the Word of God. She discusses her personal, candid talks with God and includes her personal prayer rituals and journal entries spanning over twenty years. Sheri provides anecdotes from her life as a single woman of Faith, from a near-death experience when she was just eight years old to her born again Faith today. She makes no excuses and even admits that she is not perfect, comforting those who feel they must be flawless in their Faith and actions. After all, we’re only human!

With two sections, “pray” and “obey,” Sheri covers topics personal to her. Every reader can find subjects that resonate with them. Themes covered in this book are dating, loss, recovery, loneliness, and mental health issues such as anxiety, PTSD, and suicide. Each chapter rounds out with small prescription scriptures for healing. Whether you are new to the Faith or looking to strengthen your bond with God, Pray and Obey: Are You Talking to Me, God? can help you find your way to Him and discover the Word.

Author Sheri Ann Stanley uses personal anecdotes, candid talks with God, journal entries and more to give an intimate and unique approach to helping others find the Word and bring them closer to God.

Testimonials

  • Do you want God to talk to you…… then read this book!!!

    “In this book, Sheri Ann Stanley reminds us all of feelings we either had or have now regarding God. I honestly can say that once you start reading it is hard to stop because you feel engulfed to find out where God’s journey is going to take her next. The book is real, honest and makes you stop and think; is God really talking to her? If he is maybe he will talk to me, so it makes me want to stop relax and take five minutes to talk to God and see what I can do better myself. The book opens up reality for me to know that if I truly listen to my inner self as I’m praying there may be good to come out of all of this.

    At the beginning and end of chapters you’ll see how Sheri related the scriptures from the bible to help us relate to a situation. With this in mind it does make you think about your own situation(s) and how you can be more involved with God. GREAT READ, if you want God to talk to you, so please read this book. It will give you a whole new perspective about GOD.”

  • Inspiring and comforting story of loss, faith and the gifts received from those we love

    “I enjoyed this book immensely and highly recommend it. Sheri talks about her near death experience (NDE) at the age of eight and how it affected her life thereafter. After losing her mother she begins to dig deeper into her faith and begins to receive signs and discovers the path she longs to be on with her faith. I found it to be very inspiring and comforting listening to Sheri talk about all the beautiful gifts she received from her mom when she opened herself enough to let them be seen. Excellent on audible.”

  • Easy read story of Sheri’s life experiences

    “Inspiring, down to earth, easy read story of Sheri’s life experiences beginning with a tragic accident at age 8 and a long journey through adversity from panic to heartbreak to losses and yet still she heard the voice of her maker calling to her to rely completely and wholly on Him! As the prophet, Jeremiah exclaims, “And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart (Jeremiah 29:13)”

  • Sheri Stanley writes from her heart

    “Sheri Stanley writes from her heart, and will touch your heart with her Soulful Journey. The result of the trauma she survived as a little girl, her near-death experience has borne spiritual fruit at every crossroad of her life. Her perspective here is biblically-accurate, and she comes across as both humble and grateful for the strength she’s gained through every trial — all the result of how God has miraculously saved and transformed her. Thank you, Sheri, for sharing your powerful story!”

  • Foreword for Soulful Journey

    “Where do we go when we physically leave this earth?” This is one of the greatest mysteries known throughout the history of mankind, and yet, millions of people do know- because they have experienced death and life beyond.

    Soulful Journey: Walking with Faith After My Near-Death Experience,” is an excellent tool to help you or a loved one move forward in communicating and therefore understanding of the emotions that follow such an experience.

    After Sheri Ann Stanley’s NDE she was compelled to follow a path that brought about her transformation. While still close to the spirit realm and having feelings of disconnect, Sheri sought help because of a growing fear of obtrusive panic attacks. Sheri’s sensitivity led her to unseen doors that opened to awaken her to a greater wisdom of God and His eternal truths for her.

    Sheri writes candidly about her “near-death experience” and discusses the issues of life that she confronted following her experience; such as the emotional impact a NDE can have on relationships. She explores the journey that ultimately brought her to a place of peace and wholeness.

    This book provides a window into the soul of a courageous woman. One who shares her story in effort to help others reconcile their own experiences and have the courage to share them without fear.

    Sheri’s words provided insight to bring hope, comfort, empowerment and understanding that will encourage and strengthen you in your own experience. Her journey will bring clarity on how friends and family can be a place of safety and comfort for those returning from any negative effect or trauma experienced by an NDE.

    Sheri’s book will benefit those who may be walking this path with someone that has taken this journey. May it bless you as an experiencer and provide a “common ground” for family and friends who have difficulty in understanding the unseen and unexplainable.”

  • Sheri, I praise you for writing such a book.

    “Stories about near-death experiences, especially as a child, and how after-effects are handled, are invaluable teaching tools for all of us. Near-death experiences, no matter how brief or complex, change brain structure and function, alter the nervous and digestive systems, and quite literally turn us around.

    The public focuses primarily on the phenomenon itself, “the story,” hardly glancing at what comes next and how such experiences change us….for life. You do us all a favor by offering “the rest of the story.”

    Each experiencer will differ in focus and descriptions. None of us differ in how our heart “explodes” into realms of love and compassion we never knew existed before.

    Thank you, Sheri, for this precious “hug.”
