These are bespoke packages. Please click the purchase button below which will open your email so you can email Jennifer to create & schedule the package that fits your needs.
Jennifer evokes memories that may have been hidden in the past. Family premonitions, sixth senses that were suppressed as a child or family, stories of ghosts, and other other worldly thoughts. Whether you believe any these or not doesn’t matter. What matters is it reminds you of family stories that are interesting and worth remembering. ~ ~ ~ ~D.M.
Book Writing, Master Classes, and 1-1 Support (Facilitation)
If you are involved at all with trying to follow and understand your family’s journey related to loved ones who served in the military, I highly recommend working with Jennifer. Jennifer is passionate about helping people with their journey–whether is it doing research, trying to understand the impact on the family, or putting thoughts and findings to pen and paper. All of the webinars I have participated in have been fun, interesting, and useful.
For over 20 years I have been trying to learn about my uncle who was MIA in Europe during WWII. At first, I thought my quest was to learn all the facts and details about where he was, what he did, and what happened to him. What I have started doing along the way–and why I appreciate Jennifer so much–is delving into the equally compelling and more important story about the impact of my uncle’s loss on the family. In many cases, I knew things from my own memories and previous conversations with relatives that I had not connected to the war. After going through a Master Class with Jennifer based on the book Reconciliation with War, I was able to connect the dots and get a much better picture of what the collective family had been going through. Jennifer is now helping me edit the draft of a book about my uncle’s story and the impact on the family. I greatly appreciate her insight and expertise.
Besides being knowledgable, Jennifer is friendly, warm, and genuine. I enjoy working with her and now consider her a good friend.
5th Infantry Division Research, Travel, and Book
From Hill 183 to the Bulge. My father was an officer in the Army during World War II – a first lieutenant and later a captain. He served in the 5th Infantry Division, 10th Infantry Regiment, Company E. Before working with Jennifer Holik what little I knew about his time in the Army was that he was wounded in the Hedgerows of Normandy, then recovered in time to serve under Patton in the Bulge. Now I know that he saw some of the heaviest combat on the front lines of the European Campaign. Like most World War II combat veterans he rarely said anything about his time in the war. Occasionally he opened up around other veterans, and our family was able to get small glimpses of what he went through. But that was it. He went to war in his twenties and spent the rest of his life – more than fifty years – carrying those memories.
I was so blessed to have found Jennifer. Like so many other GIs most of my father’s records were destroyed in a fire at the National Archives in St. Louis in the 1970s. Jennifer found and researched available records for my father’s units to piece together the story of where he was and what he was involved in. She was critical to my finally learning where my father was wounded so I could visit the area of the Battle for Hill 183 in Normandy. She found genealogical information from the early part of the 1900s about my family, and crucial information about my father during the war. This all resulted in a book she patiently co-wrote with me about my Dad that instantly became a family heirloom. I can’t think of a better experience to not only answer my own questions but to tell my father’s story – and really the similar stories of so many other World War II combat veterans.
Thank you, Jennifer – once again. ~~~Paul W. Hadley
Meet Your Writing Coach
Hello! I'm Jennifer!
I’m a spiritual coach and an Intuitive healer specializing in inherited & war trauma, and personal & ancestral healing. I’ve been on a conscious personal healing journey for a more than a decade. My journey began while researching & writing about my family & military history. My military ancestors helped me dive deeper into my personal & ancestral trauma to heal.
This healing also led me to write and publish more than 20 of my own books since 2011. Since 2010 I have also written and published more than 100 client genealogy and military story books, memoirs, recipes, and photo books.
Discovering the history of our families allows for family patterns, inherited trauma, & secrets to rise. This provides an opportunity to take a deeper look at our research to allow for healing & closure.
By 2015 my healing journey & military work allowed me to travel in Europe & create a life both there & in Chicago. I became embedded in Dutch society, life, relationships, healthcare, politics, culture, got a deep dive into grief when I became a caregiver to someone I was married to in the Netherlands. All of that gave me a unique perspective on our world & the layers of trauma we each carry, no matter where we live.
I visited battlefields & burial sites, religious & cultural sites, heard family & war stories, some of which brought me to my knees in grief as I channeled the people telling the stories. I understand context that many people do not. This makes me unique in the way I can help clients heal on both sides of the ocean to explore their personal & ancestral family patterns & war trauma. I have studied & understand genealogy & military records, & what information, secrets, patterns, inherited trauma, feelings, & emotions they may share.
Each experience I had in Europe gave me awareness & puzzle pieces for my healing & the healing of our ancestors & the collective. Puzzle pieces & awareness I can now share with you.
For more than a decade I have studied ancestral lineage healing, energy healing modalities, inherited trauma, PTSD, grief & loss, caregiving, & spiritual modalities. I have also taken a deep dive into my personal and ancestral healing.
I look forward to working with you to heal yourself and your ancestors. We are all connected no matter where we live, what our culture is, what our trauma has been….when one heals, we all heal.
