"I had the opportunity to connect with Nancy Lee, although not in person, we interchanged communications since we are both published authors. At the time, I read her book, A Rose for My Mother, and I was impressed by two things; the degree of detail which she recalled from her early life and childhood, and the spiritual sense of redemption as she found her way through a very challenging period. I have not attended her lectures, but I have no doubt that if her book is a reflection of her ability to speak, that her lectures will be informative and ." - Real Laplaine, Author

1)Hopes and Wishes Can Come True
Nancy brings to life the vignettes she profiles in her book, A Rose for My Mother, giving details of her confusing emotions and self-discoveries while growing up in the 1940s and 1950s. The story of hardship and heartbreak is punctuated by tears and laughter. The poignant anecdotes are full of incredible strengths and amazing willpower. There joy, tears laughter in the wisdom, insight empathy gleaned from these incredible tales, giving the message that hopes and wishes can come true. 
{EXCERPT FROM THE SPEECH: The future holds many mysterious and unanswered questions; what is too become of us and will we ever overcome our dire circumstances? Will the almighty God in His graciousness and mercy rescue us from our trying times?
We must believe in and we must believe in the power of the higher forces that will bring about the goodness and well-being that we deserve. God wants us to know and to believe that He is sending us blessings of peace, love, faith, joy and good health today and all the days of our life - hopes and wishes can come true!"}
2) All The Power Is Within You  
Nancy shares insight and advice on how to harness the unlimited powers of our minds and imaginations in order to overcome the troubles, fears complexities in our lives. She reminds us that "Happiness is a Choice" and can be achieved by (1) positive thinking (2) developing good friendships  (3) refining personal relationships and using time wisely. It is with our own mental power that our desires, strengths success, are attracted to us. Her message is that all the power is within you.
{EXCERPT FROM MY SPEECH: Lift yourself up and never put yourself down. Don't beat yourself up with negative talk. Work at changing what you don't like about yourself. If that is not possible then learn to love and accept yourself the way you are... God does!.
Give yourself some incentive and positive rewards when you accomplish something that you are most proud of, it doesn't matter how big or how small the reward. Don't wait for others to praise you You know you did a good thing!
Forgive yourself when you make any type of mistake. Then, figure out what lesson you can learn from the mistake, and use that lesson to make better choices. All mistakes are just lessons!
Enjoy each and every one of your successes. Remember, all the victorious triumphs and accomplishments that you’ve made along your journey and think about them often. Be the Beautiful Spirit that is within you. Now is the time!"}
3) We Are Never Truly Alone
Angels, helpers, spirit Guides-whatever we may wish to call them doesn't matter. What matters is that we know they are there to comfort and to help us. Nancy tells of her experience with an angel during a time of great distress. As a participant in the seance of Harry Houdini, Nancy reveals the messages that she received. Also, as "A Ghost Buster," she tells some very interesting and sometimes frightening stories about her investigations of haunted houses, cautioning us not to experiment with what we do not understand. Her message is that we are never truly alone.
{EXCERPT MY FROM SPEECH: Many times in life, we wonder if we are alone; we wonder if anyone knows how we might be feeling. We feel isolated. We keep our feelings stuffed down deep. We often suffer our struggles, our frustrations or our fears in silence. At other times, we may cry out in the quietness of our own solitude, where we think no one can hear us. We need to know that although it may feel like we are traveling a lonely road - we are never truly alone!
God and His protecting, healing and comforting Angels understand what is happening to us. God and His Angels about us. We need to know that God is there to listen, to send His Angels to comfort and advise - we are never truly alone!
We were never meant to be alone, nor have we ever been! We only have to reach out our hearts in prayer and be willing to accept the protection, healing comfort that God will send to us. He will walk with us and speak truth into our life. He will hold our hand in our darkest hour, He will support us in our loneliest times. God gives us the gift of Love and wants us to know - we are never truly alone!"}
