December 2014 Newletter

At this Christmas Season, we reflect on the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, on the story of his birth and the beautiful visitation of an angel to his mother announcing his birth. See Luke 1: 26-38.

God also sends messages in dreams or visions to many parents concerning the birth of their child. These messages are called “announcing dreams” and I have been writing about them for many years now.

In fact, a beautifully tender and popular song in America right now is Garth Brooks’ new song, Mom.  It is about a conversation that goes on between God and an unborn child.  Listen to it here. When Brooks sang this on The Ellen Show, he brought tears to the eyes of Ellen and many in the audience.  This song teaches the eternal truth that God is our Father and we come from heaven before we are born.  We are literally His spirit children who are now having an earthly experience.

Sarah and granddaughter Eden

We Lived in Heaven with its tender stories about contacts with children before they are born has been loved by thousands of people throughout the world. So far, it has been translated into Portuguese and German. Additionally, I have been privileged to speak on many radio and TV shows about unborn children. Parents tell me their children and grandchildren love having these touching stories read to them.  Here put photo of Sarah and Eden.

Recently I was invited to speak again at Clear View Academy in Mesa. It was a wonderful opportunity to share the message of We Lived in Heaven with the students and faculty.  They invite authors, businessmen and women, and others with a positive message to their school once a week for “Spirit Day.”  The guest is asked to speak from their heart and share their passion.  I spoke of using some of the many true accounts I have collected to speak in Washington D.C. during a congressional meeting concerning the sanctity of life.  It was such a privilege to teach on Capitol Hill that we are children of God!

Within a few days of returning to Arizona, I was invited to speak to a group of legislators concerning a bill that would legalize abortion of unborn children clear through the 9th month in the womb.  My remarks changed some votes, according to Congresswoman Johnson and the bill was voted down in Arizona (at least until the courts legalized late term abortion with no vote from the people).

schoolI really enjoyed the chance to interact with the students.  I hope they felt the message I wanted most to emphasize, that one person can make a difference if they follow the direction that God is giving them.  Towards the end of my talk I played a song by Janice Kapp Perry and Senator Orrin Hatch called, Alleluia! Alleluia! The words of the song remind us that we are soldiers in the army of God and we need to commit to do His work protecting lives.  We must stand for truth and right! During the song I marched around the auditorium (Yes, I know—but you had to be there J) shaking hands with students to illustrate—Onward and upward! We can do this! I was so happy to have both the young people and the faculty express enthusiasm and humor at my dramatics.

He Is a God of Miracles and Blessings

Movie star Angelina Jolie is not known as a praying woman. Recently, due to a severe storm she, as director, was in danger of failing to complete the final scene of the inspiring film, Unbroken. With no relief in sight, it is reported that Angelina suddenly dropped to her knees in front of the entire crew and prayed for God’s help.  Within moments the rain ceased, the clouds parted and the sun shown through providing the needed light for the cameras. Her prayer brought a divine and miraculous result.

I share this story because I had a similar experience when filming a TV show about We Lived in Heaven a few years ago.  A television producer from the show Angels and Miracles called and arranged to send a crew to interview me.  The director hired a local camera crew and was scheduled to arrive at 10:00 am on a Sunday morning.  I was up early, getting ready when I walked into the foyer by the front door.  I stopped short.   There was a baby dove on the entry table sitting calmly beneath a large painting of Christ. How?

I looked around. The front door was still locked tight from the night before. Morning doves, friendly, cooing little gray and white birds, are daily visitors to our front lawn…but how did this little creature get inside?

Carefully I picked up the tiny bird and stood quietly, completely bewildered. The bird was totally calm. Holding it seemed to bring peace to my anxious heart.  It looked up at me with its tiny little eyes as if it were bringing me a message.  Through this tiny creature, I felt the blessings of God would be with me as I worked on the day’s filming.  Although I am always grateful to share my message, I typically have a bit of anxiety before filming.

I looked at the baby bird, this tiny creation of God, and allowed its calm energy to fill my heart. I finally walked out my front door and held the bird up to the branch of a tree. It hopped on and I whispered “Can you go find your mommy?” The little bird took off like a shot to the very top of a grandfather pine tree in our side yard.

At 10:00 am, the doorbell rang and I invited the director, the camera crew, and their miles and miles of electrical cords into my house. Everything that goes with sound, lighting and filming was promptly set up in my living room and I was invited to sit on a chair in front of the camera.

“Please introduce yourself.  State your full name and then spell it,” the director requested.

I was familiar with this routine. “My name is Sarah Hinze.” Suddenly—POP, POP, POP—every light in the room shut off.

“What’s going on?” the director asked.

“The sound is down too,” the guy behind the camera said. “And my camera isn’t working.” They looked into the next room where the lights were still on.

I knew what was going on. I said, “I think I have an idea what has happened.  There’s energy with this work that sometimes affects electrical equipment.”  I said no more, but could feel the force of spirit children present. They often show up when I speak on their behalf.

“This has never happened.” the director said. “What should we do?”

“I’ll pray. Will you join me?” I offered.  I proceeded to ask God to help the equipment work and for all of those involved in any way to feel the love that was here with us as the angel children were present. I asked that the electricity be restored so we could conduct the interview.

Within a minute or so of praying, everything came back on. The crew was subdued and experienced greater feelings of reverence than normal.  As they finished I thanked them and gave each one a copy of We Lived in Heaven.

 A few weeks later one of the camera crew from that show called, “I am reading your book and I am so amazed at the message. Am I really a child of God?”

This simple message was a new idea to this man. I’m always humbled when others learn this concept for the first time. We spoke for almost half an hour.  I explained how there are spirits in heaven eager to come to earth, as was he before he was born. I reassured him, “Yes, you are absolutely a child of God, sent to this earth with a mission to love and serve your fellowman.”

He concluded, “The experience filming in your home, the prayer and reading your book has been life changing for me.”
Joyful News!

Today I learned that our Spanish edition of The Castaways saved a beautiful little girl from abortion.  She is one year old now and thriving with her mom and dad.

15th Anniversary Edition of The Castaways

 Soon we will be announcing a significant and important new book, a 15 Year Anniversary Edition of The Castaways, updated in collaboration with attorney E. Douglas Clark, Director of UN Affairs for the World Congress of Families sponsored by the Howard Center for Family, Religion and Society and author of the World Family Declaration (
