Soulful Journey



At the age of eight, Sheri Stanley was struck down in the street, by a truck, as she was getting off the school bus… and nearly died. Soulful Journey is the true story of her experiences, from that day through to today. Sheri’s story describes her out-of-body trip to heaven at age 8 and being able to watch herself in the hospital room as her family anxiously stood by.

It details her communications as an adult, with her beloved Mom who died suddenly in 2002, and with her sister who passed away one year ago. Sheri chronicles thirty-plus years of trying to understand what she experienced on the Other Side, her fear of sharing her story, feelings of isolation and self-doubt, her quest for answers in the midst of severe PTSD and anxiety attacks, and her desire to experience again the all-encompassing Love she felt in heaven.

Her journey includes the exploration of many religions, and holistic and spiritual practices as she sought to recapture the joyous minutes spent with Jesus, a search which has led her to a stronger faith today.

Sheri shares her life events, hurdles, triumphs, discoveries, and insights in this moving novel. Amidst many a dark night, when despair and loss took their toll, she explores the signs she has been given: to let her know that, all along, Jesus has been right there, by her side


  • 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.”
