5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride, May 16, 2012
This review is from: The Pearl of Great Price: The Spiritual Journey of a New Age Seeker to the Light of Christ and the Eastern Orthodox Church (Paperback)
Author Veronica Hughes takes the reader on a fast paced wild ride through the world of spirituality. A baby-boomer seeker, she ventures from Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and a host of other New-Age religious schools and metaphysical movements to the Eastern Orthodox Church. It’s basically her life story as the child of an Italian immigrant, baptized into Catholicism, marrying early in life, and pursuing different forms of spirituality to provide healing. Along the way she becomes an educator and authority in channeling messages from ascended masters. After various dissapointments and depression she finds her spiritual home in Christian Orthodoxy. An enjoyable read, I highly recommend it. I notice she also has a website containing some useful resources. Thank you for sharing your story Veronica and I look forward to your next book.

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
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
