Eileen Pheland  

Founder/President of Smile & Gratitude Charity Foundation, Inc., Author

A gifted self-publicist, Eileen Pheland is an American speaker and author, who is well known for her practical, easy-to-understand messages. Aside from her work as an author and speaker, she is also the Founder and President of Smile & Gratitude Charity Foundaࢢon, Inc.

Eileen uses her talents as an author and speaker to encourage and guide homeless people. She uses her book, The Brighter Side of Homelessness, as a springboard to introduce the world of homelessness as a positive, life-changing experience that can provide spiritual enhancement for reinforced inner strength and spiritual enlightenment.

“Never give up, no ma‚tter what happens in your life. Count your blessings, things can always be worse. It’s also important to be grateful and learn to enjoy whatever comes your way.”

“If you want to help a homeless person, give them a smile. Buy them a nice hot meal, give them a gift card or some money. You can even book them a room in a motel or hotel for a night.”

Eileen is no stranger to calamity, adversity, crises, and dilemmas of many kinds. She has survived both homelessness and criminal stalker cases that made headlines around the world, while also overcoming many other challenges and obstacles with faith, hope, and love, inspired by her best friend, Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As an entrepreneur and humanitarian, Eileen is an example of how the power of God can change anyone’s life. Let go and let God. He works everything out. Let Jesus be your all and all, your best friend. Keep learning and growing spiritually with faith, hope, love, and happiness. I’m a true Christian who is happy, hopeful, confident, grateful, and blessed with the Holy Spirit’s connection.” In her leisure, Eileen enjoys reading, writing, walking, and singing. Most of all, she loves to att‚end and present Bible studies at her local church, using her book as a way to help others transform their lives. “I’d like to be remembered as someone who always helped others to be happier, more spiritual, more hopeful, and peaceful. I want to help others change their lives for the be‚tter.
