Five More Minutes With “The Divinity of Dogs”

Written by Braiden Rex-Johnson on October 25, 2012

Are you familiar with my colleague Jennifer Skiff, author of the amazing book, “God Stories: Inspiring Encounters With the Divine?”

She is an award-winning investigative journalist and correspondent for CNN who has just released a new book entitled, “The Divinity of Dogs: True Stories of Miracles Inspired by Man’s Best Friend,” that promises to be as inspiring and well-regarded as her first tome.

In a recent email she says, “‘The Divinity of Dogs” is a book where people describe the moment they learned something spiritually profound about life from an experience with a dog. It’s also a memoir. I share many of my personal truths in it, for the first time.

“One of the stories is about the tragic death of 16-year old Josh Lander, and the puppy he picked out three days before his death. Yesterday his mother wrote to me. She said she was laughing and crying at the same time. She had received an invitation to a number of book signings from me. She looked at all the signings and then chose the one closest to her home (2.5 hours away).

“She then looked down at the date. The book signing is on her son’s birthday. Josh would have been 34 years-old on that day. For her, that was a message from him. She said she had been waiting a long time for confirmation he was with us. That was it.”

Jennifer describes writing her second book as  both “amazing and overwhelming” She says that, like “God Stories,” she knows this book will create positive change in the world.

Both books are very much in keeping with our Five More Minutes With zeitgeist, and I hope you will buy Jennifer’s books and support her in her ongoing, inspiring, and inspired journey.

You can order the book on Jennifer’s website, follow the book on the Divinity of Dogs Facebook page, and follow Jennifer on Facebook, too.
