"​​​When Spirit Calls is an extraordinary journey of heart and spirit. Each episode is a meditation in itself as the author engages us in the heart of each moment. We breathlessly await her next turn, as if her discoveries and revelations are our own. More than a memoir, When Spirit Calls nurtures, companions, and inspires all who seek to know their purpose
and callings on the planet, and who aspire to elevate their courage in fulfilling them."
