In these times of uncertainty and swirling negative energy, a book that fully delivers good news is needed more than ever. The first edition of this book was published in 2003 as GOD’S MESSENGERS: What Animals Teach Us about the Divine. New World Library has reissued it with a heart-opening new cover and updates.
It’s arrived just in time for Mother’s Day gift giving!
We are thrilled that our new book contains an original story from Richard Simmons about the incredible Dalmatians who cared for his mother Shirley. We’d like to give you a little insider-scoop on how Richard’s story came to be in our book.
When we wrote to Richard to ask if there was a special animal story he wanted his enormous fan base of millions around the world to read, he called us and asked, “Allen and Linda, how can I help you?” Then he graciously shared an experience that had deeply affected him.
As far as we know, Richard’s story is not in any of his other books or on his website. He wanted it to be in THIS book that would honor the spiritual contribution the dogs Brent and Rhett, his gifts to Shirley, had made to his mother’s life. These dogs had consistently reassured Richard that his mother was in good paws and eased his pain over her passing.
After we sent the published book to Richard he wrote to us, “Congratulations on the beautiful success of your new book. Of course, I flipped to Shirley’s story. Yes, of course, I cried. Each night before I go to bed, I read two other stories. I do love your new book.”
On the NEW website we have designed to accompany the book www.angelanimalsbookofinspiration.com you’ll find over 20 of the endorsements and reviews about it’s amazing impact. But next, are a few of the comments reviewers and celebrities have made.
“As a lifelong animal lover, I am delighted to see them celebrated in such a positive way. You and your pet will enjoy reading this together.”

I am grateful that they have the courage to explore and share the deepest levels of our kindred connections. I love this book. Read it and open your heart, and transform into the loving beings that we all are!”

“In this collection of true stories the Andersons show how animals serve as conduits for messages of spiritual love and help in times of despair, loss, and confusion. Meditations following each story guide those in need of some soul work, making the book even better. . .Pick up several copies as gifts for all the animal lovers on your list. Yes, it really is that good!”
