Welcome to a new level of understanding of life: the Reasons Why Bad Things Happen.

I wrote this book while my life was crashing around me, forcing me to not only dig deep but to go “higher” to gain understanding and meaning.  I discovered the “Five Reasons Why” through divine guidance, self-analysis, meditation and extensive research.  I wrote it because I couldn’t find the complete answers written anywhere (although I owe a lot of great authors, scientists, theologians and philosophers for their insight and wisdom that helped to support the messages in this book).   And I wrote it so that it might help people of all beliefs, backgrounds and experiences reach the deep sense of harmony and faith that I have experienced through the level of perception and acceptance that comes from knowing the Five Reasons Why. 

Discovering and understanding the Reasons Why has changed my life in a profound way.  It is my wish for you to reach the same level of love, peace and awareness.
