In 1982 Terry died in a car accident. She was pronounced dead, but she survived. Terry found herself looking down at her body in the center of a frantic scene at the hospital. She was drawn into luminescent, white light, full of pure love. Her Inner Divine Spirit awakened with her Near-Death Experience message of pure love filled with amazing healing potential.
At first, Terry feared being misunderstood. Only her friends and family knew. She spent years researching the connection between the human brain, science, spirituality and the ability to heal ourselves. In 2006 when serious health problems plagued Terry, she started to revisit what she learned from her long buried NDE. She knew a life full of countless medications and sickness was not why she came back from death. Terry is now healthy, drug free, and committed to share the wisdom she has acquired to help others find love, peace, and healing amidst the difficult times in their own lives.
In March of 2015, Terry received the West Michigan Character Council award for Boldness, boosting her confidence to keep writing and sharing her experiences. She helps us understand that pure love emanating from the heart sends healing messages to our bodies as well as to the universe. Our world desperately needs all of us sending pure messages of love, compassion, and peace.
Terry has been living in the Holland, Michigan area for twenty-nine years with her husband Doug. She taught in the Holland Public Schools for twenty-four years before retiring. During these years she spent ten years leading environmental excursions for middle and high school students from across the country into the Amazon Basin in Peru, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, Costa Rica, and Kenya.
Travel brought further mystical experiences as she examined research from scientists and healing knowledge from shamans. Travel also helped Terry to process the expanded worldview which she learned during her NDE. Terry and Doug also lived for a short time in Tennessee, Colorado and Germany.
They now have three grown sons and four delightful grandchildren. For more information, visit www.thelightgap.com
