In a phone conversation one month ago Chip correctly "diagnosed" a super bad depression I was suffering & suggested I let my doctor know the med I was taking may not be working anymore?? Truly, I had no clue that this is what was happening. But a man hundreds of miles away picked up on this immediately. Chip is for real! He helps people. I doubt if even he knows what a positive impact he's had upon my life. Yes, I am singing his praises loud & clear.
Get Chip's book. You will be entertained AND you will be taught. You will enjoy reading life's lessons from his experiences. I loved that. An added bonus is the wealth of information he gives including a glossory, suggested reading list & much much more! WOW!

Chip's words came in handy in a way I had never expected. My mother was scared and I was there to help her with her last doctor appointment and to enter into Hospice care. We talked quietly of what might happen; talked about death and what comes after. I did my best to reassure her and sooth her fear. I related some stories from my own experience as well as from Growing Up Psychic. These talks seemed to help her. I arranged a visit from the local priest for her and did whatever I could to make her comfortable. The family gathered with her for her final appointment with the oncologist and, even though she was still scared, she accepted and agreed to Hospice. She was in good hands when I left and she passed peacefully a month later. We had left nothing unsaid between us. So, Chip, thank you for the help.
As often happens, life got crazy after that and I have not been able to write this review until now. No matter what you believe about death and the afterlife, I found Growing Up Psychic was a warm and helpful book. The organization of the chapters is a bit loose and free-flowing but that did not detract from the advice and intent of the stories. Chip gives a caring, articulate, humorous and helpful outlook for gifted kids in need of some support.
I wanted to read this book because I adore Chip Coffey. I've been a huge fan of his since I first saw him on Paranormal State. He's a southerner too...What's not to love? :o)
I expected this book to be more of a personal memoir, and it does contain some of his own personal experiences. However, it also discusses the experiences of the children he has worked with and gives advice for parents of children with psychic abilities. His advice is practical and down-to-earth. His tone is warm and caring. His own experiences with the cruelty of others allows him to prepare both parents and children for making their way in an intolerant society. There is also a list of recommended books for further reading.
I enjoyed this book. It was as entertaining as it was informative. I especially enjoyed the stories in the appendix - amazing personal experiences. I can't wait to read his next book!
Read this book if:
*you or someone you love has psychic ability
*you are a Chip Coffey fan
*you love to read about personal psychic experiences
from my blog: [...]
Its an honest story of his growing up with his gift and where he has gone with himself and is genuinely comforable in his skin.
Thank you, Chip! You have made another psychic feel so much better about this gift, and to view it as such, instead of as a burden, has been a huge asset to my life. I know, too, that I am not the only one you have helped. Thank you for all that you do!
