As a hospice chaplain, Bonney Rega has seen people wrestle with questions that plague all societies: What happens when we die? What’s the transition like? How do lost loved ones reconnect with relatives and friends?
In her new book “Everyday Miracles,” Rega pulls together several short stories that she has collected from her patients, grieving loved ones and her own experiences. These uplifting tales provide a source of comfort for those dealing with loss while confronting age-old questions about death and life.
“People often ask me if it’s a hard job to work with the dying,” says Rega. “It’s an honor to do this work; I’m a spiritual midwife who helps souls go from a sick body to a healthy one in heavenly realms.”
Rega’s book has a universal appeal and is written in an easy-to-read format, divided into categories of short stories based on real people’s experiences.
