What would inspire a Dutch mother of five bright-eyed children to move her family to the 'promised land' of America? She already had a lifetime of travel behind her, having lived in Asia and traveled to the Middle East and Africa, as well as having lived a year in Texas. In her travels, she survived a wealth of circumstances that would usually not occur to one person in a lifetime, from living months in the Sinai Desert with nothing more than the clothes on her back _ not even shoes. She survived an unknowing bathing episode in shark-infested waters off the Ivory Coast. She survived giving birth to her first child in a Chinese hospital where the nurses told her to leave because the hospital was full. Saskia Roell of Rockport recounts these episodes, and much more, with both humor and compassion in her new book titled 'A Suitcase Full of Faith'. A Suitcase Full of Faith Is guaranteed to ignite your courage, follow your heart's lead and put your faith into action to achieve a remarkable life! Saskia shows you HOW by traveling with her inside her story.

As a Transformational Life Coach, bestselling author and mother of five, Saskia guides with compassion, humor, wisdom, and commitment at the level of the Soul. The most powerful tool she offers is the example she sets in her life through the revelation of her own stories. She empowers others to live from the heart, find the courage to follow their dreams, and live their life purpose. Saskia found her passion for empowering others while teaching at the Rijksuniversiteit of Groningen, in The Netherlands, as a member of the Faculty of Behavioral and Social Sciences in the Department of Experimental Psychology. She has extensively studied the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, and the superconscious mind and how our unhealed emotions effect our destiny. In 2001 Saskia, her husband, and their five young children took a daring leap of faith, sold their house in Holland, and gave up their thriving businesses to explore new possibilities in the United States. With little money, no job prospects, no contacts and five kids who didn t speak a word of English, they landed in a small town by the sea. It was a challenge of a lifetime. Saskia, however, trusted they could reinvent their lives at that moment.Review:
Saskia, I started your book last night. It's a page turner! I love it. You have a gift for story telling and the messages of trust, faith, hope, to follow your dreams and live life to the fullest are all right there in the beginning of your book/journey. I have always been interested in immigrant's stories. I think it takes a huge amount of courage and soul searching for the decisions that you made. I really enjoy your short paragraphs which makes the book an easy read, your collection of poems and quotes are great choices, and best of all I love your candidness and analogies. I really enjoyed your likening your adventure to going through the birth canal. Wow. That's powerful! I look forward to enjoying the rest of the book. I'm so happy that you wrote it; thank you from the bottom of my heart. I needed this. What a wonderful gift to the world! Best, Krissie --Krissie J. Burnham (Rockport, MA)
Saskia this book spoke to me like no other. I felt like I was right there with you on your travels but yet reminding me of my own path of coming to my truth. I couldn't put your book down. I read it straight through. I cried I laughed I cheered for you. I found myself in such a parallel state with you. Thank you thank you for this beautiful tale of how we all need to follow our truth! Bring us more soon! --Dawn E. Crowder 'spiritual coach' (Indiana)
This is a bit of a different review as I had the distinct and delightful privilege to be the primary editor of 'A Suitcase Full of Faith'. It was an experience of a lifetime working within a unique three-way partnership: me, Saskia and the book itself. The book spoke to me so beautifully and clearly all I had to do was to jot it down! It was work that taught me again and again to let it all go and just allow the divine to unfold. It was work done with such ease, such joy! 'A Suitcase Full of Faith' is designed to speak to you, too, to gift you with your own profound truths; they will be just what you need at the moment! The book worked with me like an old friend and you will feel this - like a warm, soft, comforting blanket - as you journey with it and Saskia throughout the world and back again. There are 47 delightful stories. You can pick up the book, start anywhere and savor a story on its own. Or read it right through as many of my friends did when they received a copy and couldn't put it down. My partner Harriet was one - she stayed up all night reading it cover to cover. I can tell you that is not like her! Then her husband asked her to read it to him! So every night she did; she read it to him as a bedtime story! And this is a couple married for 50 years! So a little thought . . . consider buying an extra copy today - there is someone you love who you will want to share it with right away! To be sure, the book was written by Saskia - it is her story - and yet you will feel, like I did, that it is Spirit speaking through her with a personal voice to you! So a second thought . . . allow your heart to be open as you read it and ask that any messages you need in your life right now come through for you. This book was divinely written and you will be divinely led. Saskia has touched the Divine in so many ways with a heart as pure as a child. Now you can be a child again and see the world through her eyes! The only thing better is the anticipation of reading Saskia's next book. Yes, there is more to come! Thank you, Saskia, for allowing me to enter into your life at such a extraordinary time and place! May the journey continue . . . Saskia and Suitcase . . . I LOVE you both! --Sue Diamond Lethbridge 'Sue Diamond' (Hatboro (Greater Philadelphia), Pennsylvania USA)
