Halfway Across the River was published by the Wandering Feather Press in 2007. It is a compilation of fascinating stories that detail Dr. Childs’s nearly twenty years of work with the dying. A true story centered around coffeehouse conversations between Dr. Childs and skeptical grieving widower Don Borwhat, Halfway Across the River chronicles the amazing afterlife encounter that turned Don’s world upside down and sent him on a journey of self transformation. The book describes Don’s evolution as he begins to expand his world view under the careful tutelage of Dr. Childs whom he has nicknamed the Godwoman. With humor, uncommon insight, and a gift for storytelling, author Dr. Childs reaches into her years of bedside experiences to help Don find his way in the expansive new world that befalls those who have experienced an afterlife encounter such as his.

The True Story of a Mystic,
a Guardian, anda Businessman   


Is it possible that our loved ones can communicate after they die? Are there ‘helpers’ on the other side who greet us at the time of death and help us to find our way just as a trusted friend or family member would in this world? Can our departed loved ones ‘check in’ on us, send us warnings, and perhaps even offer unsolicited advice? Find the answer to these questions and so much more within the pages of Soul Messenger.


Soul Messenger is a true story that details the miraculous after life encounters that have been part of Dr. Annette Childs’ nearly 25 year career working with the dying and the grieving. Annette has always walked between worlds and found her work with the dying to be a natural fit for her. However it was not until meeting the dying Margaret Borwhat that Dr. Childs would really begin to understand just how real and just how powerful our allies on the other side can be. Shortly after Margaret’s death, she began sending a series of inexplicable and unsolicited after death communications to her grieving (but non-believing) husband Don. Perplexed, intrigued, and not knowing what else to do, Don turned to Annette for help in understanding what was happening. What followed was a nearly five year shared journey between Don and Annette- one that left them both with no doubt that the afterlife is a very real place, and that those who have seemingly left this world, are never very far away.
