Creating God in Man’s Image

Posted by Roberta Grimes • January 16, 2018 • 5 Comments

One of the creepiest things I have read in awhile is an article about someone who intends to create a powerful artificial intelligence and build a new religion around it. Good grief, what would be the point of that? It’s as if science has at last achieved a religious singularity! The fact that human religions... Read More

Rearing Spiritually Healthy Children

Posted by Roberta Grimes • December 03, 2017 • 25 Comments

After a supernatural experience at the age of eight I have spent most of my leisure time in two parallel pursuits: exhaustively studying the afterlife evidence, and reading the Christian Bible repeatedly. This is such an odd combination of interests that I may be the only person on earth with the knowledge and experience to... Read More

We’ll Share the Love Again Next Year!

Many people have asked me how AREI’s Symposium went in Scottsdale, Arizona. Simply put, it was a lovefest! So many people came from all over the world that they overwhelmed the hotel where we have been holding these events: we tried to cap attendance at 500, the capacity of the hotel’s ballroom, but even with...

Believing is Not Seeing

(I had hoped to do a blog post now about the 2017 AREI Symposium, but I’d like to include a link for 2018 and that website isn’t quite ready. Please watch this space!!) Many of those who contact me will ask me what I “believe” about this or that. Some of those wrestling with the... Read More

Finding God

Posted by Roberta Grimes • September 07, 2017 • 26 Comments

I often see Internet arguments about whether God exists and what God is, as if life’s most important questions were matters of taste to be debated. In fact, we do know a great deal now about the core creative force, and it is indeed extraordinary; but the more we learn, the more we see that... Read More

Dealing with Grief

Posted by Roberta Grimes • August 12, 2017 • 34 Comments

I hear from grieving people almost daily now. Their pain is often so raw that it is nearly unbearable to read their messages, and I realize that since I cannot feel grief myself I am handicapped in my attempts to help them. But I try! Grief is a process. It is composed of a number... Read More

This is Personal

           There is a theory that if you pick up a calf at its birth and then every day thereafter, eventually you can pick up a bull. It’s a nice idea, but I can personally testify that it is not true. I cannot believe that I haven’t found time to write a new blog post... Read More

The 2017 AREI Symposium

Posted by Roberta Grimes • May 05, 2017 • 19 Comments

It astonishes me now to realize that I met Craig Hogan just in 2009, and Susanne Wilson and the Zammits in 2014. For decades my obsessive hobby of investigating the afterlife was a lonely slog, with no colleagues and with no one in my life who even cared about what I was learning. I had... Read More

Thinking From Love

Posted by Roberta Grimes • April 19, 2017 • 6 Comments

People have been asking me to do more videos. I have a great face for radio, so being filmed while talking is not my idea of fun! But to help you enjoy my most recent books, I did three new videos. Here they are. The Fun of Growing Forever details the amazing fact that the... Read More

The Fun of Living Together

Posted by Roberta Grimes • March 20, 2017 • 8 Comments

The point of figuring out what happens after death is that you finally learn how to live. You start thinking on an eternal scale! Far from losing interest in the things of this world, you care so much more about all of humanity; and when you are thinking spiritually, you can see the world’s problems... Read More
