'Still My Heart Believes' - Merrill Sings Cara Marie's Lyrics

A Butterfly's Song

A Butterfly's Song: Watching Mama Fly Away is the captivating story of the author's Mother's battle with one of the worlds least understood diseases. It is also the touching account of a daughter's extraordinary and exemplary love and deep devotion toward her mother during her dying years.

      The sacred act of caring for her loved one over a three-and-one-half year period gifted to this author the visible work of the hands of God, through healing this mother daughter relationship and through blessing the author with an inconceivably miraculous WALK INTO HEAVEN. That journey occurred right alongside her mother at the exact time of her passing.

      "Near Death" Research Pioneer and Author; Dr. Raymond Moody, calls this phenomenon the "Shared Death Experience" and this author's glimpse of her mother's transition occurred on an airplane flying over Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Due to multiple interruptions of flight schedules, the author had been prevented several times from reaching her mother before her actual moment of death.

      This is a heartwarming, brilliant and very compelling portrait of the love between a mother and daughter, and of what awaits us all on the "Other Side."

      In the early spring Months of 2005, my Angel Mother - the most gracious and selfless women I have ever known - was diagnosed with one of the rarest diseases known to the modern medical field and to mankind.


      It's victims are overtaken by autoimmune deficiency. Slowly, almost undetecably, but with a grotesquely gruesome grip, the collagen of the body overproduces to such insidious excesses that it gradually hardens and deforms every organ of the entire body. It hardens first the skin and then begins to deform the hands, fingers, toes and feet. Eventually it hardens and deforms the mouth, nose, tongue, esophagus and face of all it's helpless captives. And finally, it hardens the inner organs, eventually wearing out the heart and lungs and shutting down the entire body.

      PULMONARY ARTERIAL HYPERTENSIVE SCLERODERMA is an unbearably brutal force with which to reckon... But my mother did it, with unbelieable style, patience and a Godlike grace.                                 - Author Cara Marie

Only One King

"I can't see Him,
But there are times I can feel His presence. Sometimes in the darkness,
I can see a ray of light."
~ Elvis Presley



Elvis Aaron Presley, a spiritual seeker throughout his entire lifetime, sought God via many corridors, including through the Latter Day Saints. On August 16, 1977, at the apex of that search, Presley - perhaps the greatest entertainer of all time - died. The world not only mourned, it groaned. But I withdrew into my my bedroom on the campus of Brigham Young University, for three days.

      On August 18, 1977 - while locked away in a private world of my own - I sought the light of heaven to assure my soul that Elvis had found his much needed resting place. In the arms of the Celestial King. It was the third day. "Oh Lord, My God..." I had entreated, vocally. This story reveals what the heavens told me then and why I now believe what I heard then is true.

"Cara's story captures a truly sensitive journey while discovering the spirtual viewpoints of Elvis Aaron Presley. Elvis's walk with faith reveals the deep affections of his southern soul...toward God, toward spirtuality, and in particular, toward the Latter Day Saints! It is also a powerful essay on being a genuine disciple of Jesus Christ. A "Must Read" for spritual seekers and Elvis fans alike."

"As an Elvis tribute artist for decades, I've examined numerous books attempting to study Elvis's life. If I had to choose one book for premier insight into his being, it would be this one. Full of direct quotes from Elvis himself, it's an inspiring account."

"Death is the last enemy,
And we will triumph.
We have nothing to fear,
God will take the last journey with us."
