Dennel B Tyon has been an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church for the past fifteen years, but she feels God ordained her long ago… always followed by animals, or sought out by injured kritters, young Dennel raised and released many wild birds, provided homes for lost and cats and unlicensed medical care if needed. Read further to hear, in Dennel’s own words, what she has planned for the future!
WHAT I’M DOING NOW:
I’ve integrated several different “operations” into one: I have run a non-profit animal rescue for years; I am also an ordained minister of non-denominational faith (NOT religious)… spiritually awakened. My adult/YA books will appeal to believers AND SKEPTICS alike; children’s books are fun as well as educational. PROCEEDS FROM SALES go directly to the ministry/animal rescue. I’ve also been running two YouTube Channels for the past year; slow start, but growing subscribers (50+ videos on each channel/ cute animals, mental health advice & spiritual motivation) and developing large playlists… both set for monetization as soon as they reach 100 subscribers. Will be selling t-shirts, etc./ supported by Patreon channel. Have numerous other websites, web pages, and social media profiles; posting and backlinking often to every site possible. Also have a Microsoft Affiliate website; launched, November 2017. Working on dissertation for Doctorate in Psychology/Pastoral Counseling.

For Belivers and skeptics alike. 4-volume series, A Letter to Heaven recounts a journey which tested faith; instructional how-to for children and MUCH MORE to come in the future.
WHO WE ARE:
My daughter and I run the animal rescue together; she shares in my vision for the future – the Spiritual Wellness Center / community. Kasey is currently seeking her real estate license to enable us to find and negotiate the purchase of a large amount of acreage to build on; she is also a woodworker/apprentice electrician and I know how to build houses, lay tile, brick, plumbing, etc. We choose to work together because we work well together & share the same passion & dream for the future; to help others.
WHY WE’RE DOING THIS:
I’ve always taken care of animals; God made it a mission of mine. I feel that I am also supposed to take care of people however I can (and open my door to all who need shelter); we hope to provide emergency shelter within ‘the Center’ and low-income housing on the property for those in need. The Center isn’t intended for profit, but I’m building several means of passive income (book sales, affiliate sales, YouTube, etc) and plan to personally invest in this project; honestly, I believe I was called by God to do it.
MOST IMPRESSIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT:
I guess, aside from the publication of my books, my most impressive accomplishment to date is returning to school at the age of 44, receiving a Bachelors degree in Clinical Psychology, a Masters in Forensic Psychology and now being 20 just months away from receiving my Doctorate degree in Psychology/Pastoral Community Counseling (I will be 55 years old when I graduate). My Dean said I hold a special place in her heart and she is so proud of me, she wants to be the one to “hood” me at graduation! Smile ;-).
