In this time of indescribable suffering from recent tragedy, many ask how is it possible to resume day-to-day living in the face of such seemingly insurmountable grief. One way is to seek hope from those who have paved the way by rising above unbelievable heart-rending circumstances.
Such an example is the amazing true story shared by Jeff Olsen in his new book I Knew Their Hearts: The Amazing True Story of a Journey Beyond the Veil to Learn the Silent Language of the Heart. In 1997, Jeff Olsen experienced a catastrophic automobile accident which caused the instant death of his wife and youngest son and multiple life-threatening injuries to him that included amputation of his left leg above the knee.
In this book, Jeff chronicles his arduous struggle to overcome his unfathomable grief, guilt and critical injuries in order to return to life as father for his surviving 7-year-old son and to pick up the threads of a meaningful life for himself.
At that time, Jeff had a profound near-death experience deepening his spirituality and giving him insights and gifts not common in today’s world. Having that glimpse into heaven gave him the courage he needed to carry on.
From the foreword by Dr. Raymond Moody: "Since 1965, I have interviewed thousands of people from all over the world who had profound near-death experiences. Jeff Olsen's story is one of the most amazing I have ever heard. It is scarcely conceivable to me, a medical doctor, that he survived given the extent and overwhelming nature of his injuries. [Among] wrenching grief for lost loved ones, nightmarish pain from horrific injuries and loss of limb, [he had] a glorious journey to the luminous worlds of love beyond death [bringing] hope, renewal, and the courage to love again."
In the depths of despair from emotional, physical and mental anguish, without hope or understanding for how to even begin to go forward, Jeff heard the etherical wisdom of unconditional love in the form of two words ... "choose joy".
