  1. Thirty years ago now I experienced a profound realization that the Holy Spirit was actively at work in my life, guiding and leading me to continue to reshape every aspect of my life and love.
    I relinquished my teaching vocation in response to a deeper inner call to integrate my Christianity with the value of Psychology.

    Amen +
