Those who have studied Angela’s teachings have called her a “spiritual cardiologist”. She is a bold and often blunt speaker who seeks to shock you into thinking outside of the box. She takes joy in being a wife, mother, and grandmother. Angela retreats to the outdoors and has a passion for teaching on spiritual topics.
Angela Q. Bertone has taught on the subject of the heart and spiritual matters since she was 19 years old. Through the years her leaders have asked her to teach on many subjects and to people of all ages. As a businesswoman and mortgage consultant she has earned the respect of her community, her customers and her colleagues.
She has also held healing retreats for broken women who have suffered the loss of their children and/or spouses. Angela counts these requests as an honor and has done this work as a volunteer.
Angela was born and raised in Livingston, Louisiana, and is one of six children. She gives honor to her mother, and credits her with passing down the art of storytelling. She finds joy in remembering her mother’s gift for crafting her own original stories, as well as for bringing the tales of others to life by providing each character with a unique voice. One of Angela’s childhood favorites is the tale of Br’er Fox and Br’er Rabbit, from a full-color, illustrated hardback version of Joel Chandler Harris’s Uncle Remus.
Angela followed in her mother’s footsteps and often performed “dinner theater” with her children. She dressed herself and her children as different story characters while they shared lunch and watched movies. She even spoke in character as she served her children, hoping to pass on her mother’s traditions and her enthusiasm for storytelling. Today, Angela is fulfilling her dream of becoming a published author. Her first book is a self-published spiritual/inspirational work called Good Mourning Sunshine.
