Reviews and Testimonials

“I was deeply touched by your book…it is a masterpiece and will support so many others in their path to healing and going within.”

– Carol Mills, RN, MA CHTP; Healing Touch Integrative Counseling, Mindfulness & Restorative Yoga

“This is one of the most moving, deeply profound, personal accounts of a journey through the “dark night of the soul” (so to speak), that I highly recommend to EVERYONE! It is also a great gift to those who have suffered from ANY illness, whether chronic or acute. The art and paintings, along with the play on words, captured my attention immediately! I could NOT PUT THIS BOOK down until I had finished it! And that is quite a feat with my hectic, demanding schedule!!! It now sits at my bedside for an easy review. I found this book both simple and deep; delightful and desperate; clever and beautiful! Congratulations, Jody Sims, for returning to your inborn talent of art and expression. Bad things happen but sometimes for good reasons!”

The power of Jody’s homophones lingers and expands the more you think about those two or three word literary gems. Compressed wisdom is what I would call them.”


Susan Vreeland, New York Times Best Selling author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue, The Passion of Artemisia, Luncheon of the Boating Party, and Clara and Mr. Tiffany

Amazing book. My heart was touched by your words and the meaning behind them. The energy of Love leaps from the pages. I found myself surrounded by that energy and the support you were given. It is beautiful. Thank you for your courage to write and publish this book for many will be healed by its words.

“I have not experienced the profound shock and sadness that comes with a cancer diagnosis, but I felt the emotion and transformation of this hard journey in Soul Provider. Jody Sims surrounds the reader with evocative art and homophones that stretch the mind and spirit, bringing you through to “A Knew Day.” This book is not only art, it is therapy. No surprise it won a Nautilus Book Award!”
