There Is Life After Death


With the COVID19 virus forbidding the world to be with their loved ones as they struggle to survive from this illness and even die from it, the news reports so many that did not get to say their goodbyes.

It inspired me to share my thoughts. 

Close your eyes my friends and finish your hugs and kisses and even your conversations. Close your eyes and let yourself see them and let them see you. You can imagine whatever you want. Let me tell you what I mean. 

My siblings and I grew up dancing together in the living room. One time I was at a Worship Team concert. I was dancing to the music, just stepping side to side. I closed my eyes and all 4 of my siblings ️joined me. The 5 of us were dancing in a semi-circle all doing the same step with perfect rhythm as happy tears fell from my eyes. I was filled with an amazing joy. I wish this for everyone. 

Don’t be afraid to think of their death. For me, it brings them back to life as the memories come flooding back and I am reminded that these memories that are still alive in me.

Close your eyes and imagine that last conversation, finish it or have a new one. Tell them how much they mean to you or say I love you and let them say it to you. Create new memories, resolve old issues, stomp your foot and yell at them if you need to then forgive them or let them forgive you. 

There is nothing you can’t do or say using your imagination with your eyes closed and you can choose to believe anything and everything with it. 

Don’t be afraid of your tears and know that they see you crying. For me, it’s when I cry, whether they be happy or sad tears, that I feel closest to them. It is for this reason that I welcome and treasure every one of my tears. 


My siblings continue to be strong forces in my mind and am truly blessed to have found a way to embrace their presence in a different way. I wish this for everyone that feels it was unfinished, that still longs to say I love you, that was forbidden or unable to sit by their dying loved one’s side, that did not get to say goodbye. 

I am here to tell you…

There Is Life After Death

Isaiah 40:31. ‘But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint’

Jodie’s dental career spans over 34 years and dentistry is her passion. Initially in private practice for 20 years, Jodie currently has over a decade with Trojan Professional Services as a consultant working directly with practices nationwide. Nicknamed “Trojan’s wordsmith", Jodie is involved with marketing and all forms of client communications. She wears many hats as Trojan’s Sr. Account Manager and created Trojan’s Consultant Relations Program. Jodie is a strong advocate for our profession, her contributions to the dental industry are extremely beneficial and she is highly respected in the industry. Jodie is a thought leader, open to change and doing what is best for any organization. “…We grew from $600K to $2.5M. I want you to understand that there are very few people who have had a profound influence over the success of my career. One of those is unquestionably Jodie Pearson. The above would not have been possible without the dedication, creativity, loyalty and professionalism of Jodie.” Gary D. Prins, DDS APC “…Our revenues were approximately $750,000 but more than tripled the size of our practice under Jodie’s leadership! I truly believe that the “secret” of our success was, and still is, predicated on excellent patient care, superb customer service, and in the implementation and execution of solid systems and protocol. Jodie was very much at the center of all of this, and I believe our practice still enjoys the fruit of her leadership to this day! Jodie possesses that rare quality of combining firm professionalism with warmth, grace, and a sense of humor. She is kind, compassionate, and of the highest ethical integrity.” John B. Wallace, DDS “I have known Jodie Pearson for almost 20 years, and she worked for me for seven of them. She had a challenging position in the customer relations department, working to retain members who were unable to generate enough value from the patients we sent them through 1-800-DENTIST, where she excelled. She developed a keen understanding of how to influence practices and get them to a higher level of success, not just with our referrals but with all their patients.” Fred Joyal, The Fred Joyal Company
