I am a native San Franciscan currently living in Sacramento, CA. Due to health issues in my early 20s, I began a spiritual journey in quest of inner peace and healing. I felt my soul and body were connected and if my soul could heal, perhaps so could my body. I was a lapsed Catholic who studied Eastern religions. I had a guru and Tibetan lama, practiced prayer and fasting, and meditation techniques. I studied metaphysics, channeling and the life of the soul, which I later taught to others. Yet, after twenty-five years of seeking within the New Age and Eastern religions, I was left depressed and spiritually unfulfilled. Thanks to my late husband and the grace of God, my spiritual journey ultimately allowed me to convert to back to Christianity, find God and open my heart newly to Jesus Christ through the study of ancient Christianity in the Eastern Orthodox Church. I am the author of two published books, The Pearl of Great Price and In Christ I am a New Creation, Part I. I am currently working on my third book, A Leap of Faith, and a book about my saint, St. Veronica, my other guardian angel. St. Veronica is the woman with the issue of blood, whom the Lord healed (Matt. 9:20). In 2018, I will be publishing a book about St. Veronica including an Orthodox liturgical service to her. I am passionate about: Eastern Orthodox Christianity (Orthodoxy) since my Christian conversion in 1996. My relationship with Jesus Christ Striving to live in the world, but not be of the world Talking about spiritual warfare - there is an unseen battle being fought for the salvation of our souls Helping others come to peace with the Church and God Connecting with other Orthodox Christians about their spiritual experiences Living a full life while dealing with chronic health issues My dogs and gardening My saint, St. Veronica View all posts by pearlofgreatpricebook

Thanks for commenting on my blog. God bless you in your struggles! I love going to church – it is the highlight of my week. The choir in our church is so beautiful and I am part of it. It is as if I am in Paradise for a while. I love God as well and strive to trust in His tender mercy towards us all.
