My name is Robert F. Esterley III. My friend, Sherri Eberhart, allowed me the opportunity to create a healing space for her during the final months of her battle against breast cancer. Here’s our story...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: I love the idea of creating an Angel Room or other sacred spaces in the home. Just the thought of it soothes my soul. Robert Esterley designs with the sacred and spiritual in mind. In this article he shares the story of a dear friend's request to create an angel room in her home while bravely confronting breast cancer. Robert beautifully illuminates the powerful healing effect of the process and of allowing the divine to hold us in that space, no matter where we are.

Maureen sings in church and enjoys many types of music. I got us all tickets to a concert on a Sunday, and she was looking forward to it. But the day before, her right foot swelled up, with the pain going up her ankle and shin.

a letter from Auriol de Smidt to Michael Williams
Here is a true story for you:
When I was thirteen my mother, a nurse, found herself nursing me in a little country hospital in Africa, with a very serious attack of typhoid fever. No antibiotics at that time...
Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Over the past 9 months, I struggled with an unexpected illness. Fortunately, I received the treatment I needed, have recovered, and am feeling much better thanks to the many prayers and blessings sent to me by family and friends—near and far. Together with the medical treatment I received, this positive energy, I believe, contributed to my healing.
I hope Auriol's story brings some of its blessing to you.
