What's your life story?
My name is Anita J. Shipman and I am a certified Life Celebrant. When I was twenty five I became sick with an unknown illness. I fought through this journey of my life for over six years, facing a new battle every day. There was no Easy Button to push.
When my six year journey came to an end, a new journey began. I was healed without medicine, tests or medical doctors. The healing came from the hands of God. I know to some, such a healing is difficult to understand. I was facing certain death, the experts had no clue what was causing my illness. Only then, when I was at my lowest and without hope, I was touched by the Hand of God. That touch took away all my pain and suffering. It opened my eyes. My heart was filled with a new purpose. My path in life was changed. Only then did I realize we all are here for a purpose and each of us are special to our family and friends. This life changing experience showed me that I was placed here to help others understand they are also important. As a Life Celebrant, I am proud to offer and provide any person, without cost or obligation, the opportunity to put together, share and record their life story.
I am blessed to have been given the gift and courage from God to stand up and represent someone's life story with respect and dignity. Each person deserves to be acknowledged when their light of life comes to a close here on earth. We all have a purpose and a story to be told. Please give me the opportunity to bring together that story for you or a member of your family.
What's the cost?
My service is free. No cost or obligation is required. Any proceeds that are gifted from writing life stories, representing them or telling their story at an end of life ceremony goes directly to the non-profit organization called God's Lights of Life.
God's Lights of Life
God's Lights of Life was founded to help families in our surrounding communities with needed assistance to help honor the final wishes of their loved one.
My husband and I have worked for years in funeral service. We both understand the burden placed on someone who just lost a loved one and are unable financially to provide a celebration of life service for their family member.
My Life Goal is to share your Life Story with those you love and to help provide financial assistance for those who are less fortunate.
I travel to nursing homes, assisted living homes, Veterans homes or to anyone who would like me to write a life story. I will provide a typed portfolio and when completed, return it to you, a friend or a family member so this special story can be shared with family and friends. Our lives here on earth are important to many. Let me help you share that story
