The Lost Spiritual World
takes you on an unforgettable journey—a journey of learning to smile in the face of adversity, of healing and refreshing your spirituality, and of finding joy in the magnificent mystery that is you.

The author and designer has spent her entire 14-year career teaching in inner city public schools.
