The Voice of a Phoenix
ello everyone! My name is Zylkia Swensen. I am 40 years old and a mother
of six kids. I started writing this book as a source of getting relief.
Everything I had inside bottle up and my heart could not take any more

Live, learn, wipe, and restart as many times as it takes until the moment to return
home with our heavenly father. Life will end on its own. So why miss out? Why
