SIDELIGHTS: Vivian Amis told CA: "My primary motivation for writing is to make a difference in people's everyday lives. God is my main motivation. Jesus's life teachings influence my work. I feel a strong need to interpret the Bible and the teachings of Jesus into a usable, understandable language. In meditation I receive messages that I pass on in my teachings: books, classes, and consultations.

"I experienced a healing at the age of eleven. A spiritual experience at the age of twenty-seven put me on my path to seek the truth of our being."
