In 2003, Lora C Mercado lost her infant son Alex, due to a congenital heart defect. After several years of working through her own grief, she felt the urge to help others who are experiencing such great loss and sadness. In tribute to her son's passing, Lora has been on a quest to help bring peace to those who are in a state of grief with her healing and inspirational books. Her first book, "Our Angels Await, Stories of Love from Beyond", includes true stories from people across the globe, who have had connections with loved ones who have passed away. These experiences will astound you and leave you with a comforting warmth, that the ones that we love never really leave our side, and are always encouraging us along the way. “365 Days of Healing: A Daily Workbook for Overcoming the Pain of Grief” is her latest book on grief healing. It can be found at https://www.amazon.com/365-Days-Healing-Workbook-Overcome/dp/1508902291. Aside from authoring fifteen books, Lora C. Mercado is also a Usui Reiki Master Practitioner and ordained minister, who has married over 100 couples.
