Have you lost a loved one? Do you ever question why you are here on Earth? What is your life purpose? What is a "medium" and how does mediumship actually work?

Daniel is a certified spiritual medium with a unique perspective to share. Being raised Catholic and becoming a "saved" Christian in high school, Daniel didn't know what to think when he had a spirit "come to him" at a restaurant one evening. It took plenty of research, faith, trust, guidance from God, and a lot of ups and downs to finally uncover his life purpose.
