Miriam Therese Winter, an award-winning musician and four-time Catholic Book Award-winner, shares her experiences of becoming a Sister, working with starving children in Ethiopia and with refugees in Cambodia, of exploring the mysteries of India and the wonders of God in her own backyard, of having breast cancer and having hope. She also illumines new aspects of community, Eucharist, the word and the spirit, water and the stars, spiritual blessedness and much more.

Each one begins with a personal experience and segues into a spiritual lesson that will resonate in your mind and heart.
