Vessel Of Light is doing what it is designed to do …. positively impact lives !

Starr was trapped in freezing weather and snow for 11 days. She was traveling with her two dogs when she was caught in a snowstorm in an isolated area. She ran out of gas and had no heat. Her tires were bald. There was no escape.

A few days prior, Starr had ordered Vessel Of Light by Vaddess (like Goddess) and put it in her glovebox. She discovered it while waiting to be rescued. It became her only connection to someone else. It gave her hope.

11 days later, Starr was rescued. She soon left her copy of Vessel Of Light book in a local laundromat so others could be inspired. The book inspired her to let her copy go, including her notes in the back.

Starr reached out to Vaddess on Facebook Messenger with thanks for Vessel Of Light. She shared her terrifying journey. Through their many conversations, Vaddess discovered Starr was homeless. So, she drove 7 hours to Colorado to surprise her with an embrace and a new signed copy of Vessel Of Light. A campaign is underway to help get Starr on her feet again. Donations are accepted at

What Readers Are Saying

“I recently had the pleasure of reading “Vessel of Light”, an inspirational book filled with personal stories that left me feeling motivated and uplifted. “Vessel of Light” is a must-read for anyone looking for inspiration and hope in the face of life’s challenges. The book features a collection of real-life stories of those who have faced adversity and come out stronger on the other side. Each story is unique, but all of them share a common theme of resilience and determination. The author shares their struggles and how they overcame these obstacles to achieve success and happiness. What I loved most about this book is how relatable and inspiring the stories are. Reading about people who have faced similar challenges and managed to overcome them gave me a sense of hope and encouragement. The writing is also beautiful and engaging, making it easy to get lost in each story and feel the emotions of the author. Overall, I highly recommend “Vessel of Light” to anyone looking for a source of inspiration and motivation. It’s a powerful reminder that no matter what life throws at us, we have the strength within us to overcome it and thrive. This book is a true testament to the power of the human spirit, and I believe it has the potential to change lives.”

Dawn R Paul

I simply could not put this book down! I loved the raw emotions that were beautifully conveyed in this book. Such an inspiration to all to actually “feel” the transformation of Annabelle from her tragic past into the beautiful butterfly she became. This book serves as a reminder that we can all act with kindness every day with even the littlest of gestures to make the world a better place. I definitely recommend this book as a lifelong keeper to read over and over again to continue the inspiration of positive thinking and the power of continuous love and altruistic practices towards others!

Sharon Peyrefitte

“Vessel of Light pulled me in from the start. Once I began to read it, I had a difficult time stopping. The author’s writing style is an easy read for any educational status. I could relate to something in each chapter as I reflected on my life’s purpose. I have discovered that I need not do something monumental to have a purpose in my life; I should be aware of the people around me and offer kindness and empathy to those in need. This book has evoked change in my perspective. A must-read!”

Natalie N

“Vaddess has the talent to stir up emotion within the reader to make a personal connection that engages the reader in an honest journey of her life experiences: from the dark & doubtful times to the brighter, blessed times. Throughout it all, she challenges the reader to Display Acts of Selfless Humanity that helps the reader to look deeper within themselves, reach out to help others and create a positive, empowering cycle of “paying it forward” that benefits all, with the hope of spreading across the world. As Vaddess has discovered, kindness is catching, and it starts with us.”

Jennifer T

“This book is electrifying! Not just because the character gets electrocuted but also because it is funny, witty, and it teaches many biblical truths! My favorite chapter is the spider chapter. The character is all covered in spiders, she’s in a room that has maggots, and she falls. She gets thrown back and forth because she gets shocked by the electricity. Not just that, it is an electrifying book, highly spiritual, and it lifts your spirits and it makes you understand the magnitude of God’s love. I highly recommend it!”

Dinora Conwill

An extremely powerful collection of stories taking the reader through every emotion possible and leaving them with the faith that despite the many obstacles life throws our way, you can still find light in the darkness.

“The author communicates a lifelong persistence that is renewed at her darkest moments by her faith in God. She is a model for her inexhaustible belief that the Lord guides her through the difficulties that would stop many.”
Theresa Barker
An uplifting journey despite pitfalls, disappointments, and obstacles that leads to a deeper faith and ends with a beautiful and delightful love story. A must-read.
Carole Rector

“Engaging! Each story has a great ending, and the main character, through overcoming much adversity, was validated in the end. I was inspired by the character being strong and overcoming things I couldn’t imagine myself doing. After reading Vessel Of Light, I feel empowered with a confidence I never had. This a great book encouraging humanity to find purpose in life and reach their highest potential by giving back!”

Lee B
Cultural and social expectations surrounding the main character. She pushes through them, obtaining an abundance of local help to protect her from a dangerous foundation. Ultimately, she propels forward in order to be whom she was created to be and maximize her potential.
