Spirit Speaks: Experiencing Loss of Self to Discover Love of Self (Paperback)
I slowly open the door and push the kitchen chairs away to crawl out into the light. The tiny clean kitchen is broken and ransacked. Everything is in chaos. My eyes strain to see what has happened. My feet are cold on the gold shag carpet. The living room is dark except for the light filtering through the drapes. I wander around the room, lost and alone. I find my mommy naked on the floor. I approach her, no response. Crying, I shake her bloody body.
"Mommy, Mommy, please wake up."
Mommy won't wake up. She's dead
"Mommy, wake up. Please wake up, Mommy, wake up. I will be a good girl. Just wake up, and I will take care of you. Mommy, please wake up. Mommy, please wake up, and I will never leave you. I will always take care of you if you wake up."
The front door swings open and I freeze. A man grabs me. I scream for Mommy.
"I have been personally a witness to Denise's journey, and having known her and seen her journey. I know what powerful a soul she is. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is going through their personal journey, or is interested in learning about it, to catch a glimpse of how a journey of transformation goes. I am sure that through these words this book will be a doorway to healing for many."

"Buddha taught 'It is better to travel well than to arrive'. This book is a raw, open, vulnerable & honest story of a path traveled by many but fully experienced by only a hand-full. The biggest takeaway from Denise's rendition is that our inner light remains uncorrupted no matter how impossible of an external circumstance we are subjected to. It is not easy to write with such integrity about dark family dynamics. This book is the light in the dark; it is the freedom we all crave"

When I started coaching Denise Schaad immediately, I felt I was in the presence of someone compassionate with a big heart who wanted to clear her past to move forward and put everything behind her. She has the drive to assist other people.
Denise is determined and persistent in her own healing, and I'm aware she would be a great coach for anyone who works with her.
She is creative, energetic, enthusiastic, inspirational and at the same time affectionate, intuitive, supportive, loyal, lovable and friendly.
I had the pleasure of working with her.
