Book Review
Readers\' Favorite Book Contest Award Winner Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers' Favorite

While I Was Learning To Become God is based on the life of Sybil Vaughn. Roxana Jones sat at Sybil's bedside and listened intently as Sybil told her story which included "guardian angels." Guardian angels have been watching out for Sybil her entire life. Sybil was only one year old when she became very ill. Her mother, Cassandra, feared her daughter would not survive. However, it wasn't Sybil's time yet. A guardian angel told her mother to give her green coconut milk. Within a few months, Sybil was thriving. In another instance she was playing behind her father's truck where he could not see her. The quick action of her guardian angel caught her father's attention before he backed over her. Sybil's life and experience are unique and remarkable. She was only six years old when she communicated with dolphins telepathically. After her first marriage ended in divorce she visited a commune. During a worship/meditation service she once again saw her guardian angel. In an out of body experience she conversed with him. She found peace in her meditations.

Sybil had been controlled all of her life, first by her mother and then by her husband. I see Sybil as a butterfly. Her story is one of metamorphism, the reader watches as Sybil changes. I'm not sure I completely understand or agree in Sybil's belief system. However, I found her story fascinating. I have attempted to be vague and brief in sharing Sybil's life story, as my review would be too long if I shared all of the amazing events in her life. I can only imagine the joy and awe Roxanne Jones felt as she listened to Sybil. It is obvious they formed a great friendship. Sybil's discussion of her spiritual life was intriguing. I have a couple of questions I wish I could ask her.

Roxana Jones did an excellent job bringing Sybil's story to life. I felt as if I knew her personally. She also described the Guardian Angels in such a way that I could see them in my mind's eye, Sybil was a remarkable woman and this is a remarkable book.
