This is Karen Rider, Annie's research assistant/collaborator/co-author. Annie has mentioned my name a few times, so we thought it time for me to formally introduce myself to all of you wonderful gals :)
ETAW is an amazing synthesis of divine guidance on loving your WHOLE BEING and sound nutritional guidance. How do I know this? For one, I trust Annie and the wisdom that comes to her from the celestial realm. Second, my educational and professional background is in the health sciences: A B.S. from Penn State University in Exercise Science (physiology, nutrition, wellness, fitness, sports psych, etc) and an M.A. in Psychology (University of Hartford)-concentrations in research methods and health psych. I've worked as a personal trainer, fitness director, wellness program manager, behavioral health research assistant among others. Third, like Annie (and I gather many of you), I have had many years devoted to the struggle with body image, self image, and disordered eating-- to include a diagnosed eating disorder that I suffered with for more years than I care to think about ..... which lost its power over me some 12 or so years ago.
As you may have read from Annie, whom I've know a few years, I was skeptical about Angels communicating about the nourishment of the human body. Because of the trust I have in Annie and her intuitive skills, I gave a serious look at the messages. At the same time, I was interviewing Caroline Myss, Dean Ornish, MD, and Mark Hyman, MD for articles and interviews I write for various holistic publications (yes, I'm a writer, too... I also write fiction, like Annie).
In conjunction with what I knew from my own experience and education, I was astounded to find that these Angel Way guidelines so remarkably align with current nutrition/health science recommendations for eating, exercise, and self-care. I was hooked. I encouraged Annie to continue, with confidence, spreading the message while I went to work on research and supporting documentation for ETAW. We are synthesizing these facets of ETAW -- celestial wisdom and modern science--to present to an agent/publisher in the next few weeks
This post is long enough... but I don't get to post too often because I am also the mother of two incredible daughters-- under age 4-- wife to a pretty terrific fellow--and trying to write, research and move to a new house. So, if you have specific questions that Annie passes on to or consults about with me, please be patient... I will respond in as timely a manner as is (humanly) possible!
