About Gerrie Walker
"I am a Spiritual Inspirationalist, which means that I inspire and motivate the world by painting a picture of love, faith, peace, hope and all good things with my voice and the written word. I believe that life is not saying you are sorry for caring too much, for loving too hard, or wanting too much. Life is about doing all of those things with dignity, love and grace. Blessings to you!"
Geraldine Reneé Walker considers herself a “spiritual inspirationalist.” And a few quite moments spent alone with her blog or one of her books reveals exactly why.
Friends and family call her “Gerrie” and in her writings she implores everyone to do the same. While Gerrie was born in Los Angeles, Calif., she has lived in Sacramento most of her life.
Gerrie’s books came to her almost as a heavenly dictation. After, however, she came to realize—at the ripe of age of 50 no less—the power of giving her soul to the Lord our Savior. A pivotal moment for Gerrie was when she became a member of the New Thought Movement in April of 2010. She recalls being swept up in an ocean of love, and was so moved that she never looked back.
She was inspired to write while taking a class at her church by one of the facilitators of the class, Lisa Nichols, participant in the renowned movie “The Secret.” Nichols set Gerrie on a course to increase her writing times each day. And once Gerrie’s books came to her almost as a heavenly dictation. After, however, she came to realize—at the ripe of age of 50 no less—the power of giving her soul to the Lord our Savior.
Sometimes the words would rush over her like a waterfall, other times they would trickle in one word or phrase at time. But they kept coming. Finally, one day Gerrie stepped back from her writings, and saw that she had over 300 pages of prayers, meditations, and inspirational stories and sayings. She had herself a hefty spiritually inspired manuscript.
Gerrie consulted a book coach who advised her to split the book into two parts, as there was more than enough content. The result: “Through Thine Eyes - The Spiritually Inspirational Journey of God Moving in my Life: Spiritually Inspired Expressions,” and “Through Thine Eyes - The Spiritually Inspirational Journey of God Moving in My Life: Prayers and Meditations.”
“I write to let people know they are loved and love is part of their existence,” she said.
And just to give you a taste of what to expect at Gerrie’s book signing, here is a snippet from her introduction to “Through Thine Eyes”:
“My life’s purpose is to inspire others to be all they can be for themselves, and for the world, by providing spiritual inspiration through my writings of spiritually inspired expressions. …This is my wish for you: to share in faith, believe in yourself, and to know fully and truly that you are an inspiration of what is “Good” and “Right” in this world. May the writings that you are about to experience in this book provide you with the strength and the perseverance to continue to strive toward the excellence that God sees for you.
“You are good! You are enough!
“May God bless you and keep you strong, for you are an inspiration to the world.”
