What could be more natural and timely than ...

Spiritual wisdom drawn from a woman's world; word paintings expressed in the poetry of mother-daughter dialogue?

Home and hearth lessons in eternal truth, firmly grounded in day-to-day experience?

Small scenarios of inquiry and response, deep questioning and fledgling faith, that reverberate with quiet insight?

Dialogues that reflect modern levels of questioning; knots of paradox that require a woman's patient attention and inner care to tease out true, gentle wisdom?

A poetic exploration of the large and the small issues of women's life-nested, braided, interwoven, never fully unraveled-in precise language that retains the mystery but awakens the soul?

Enter into the world of Becoming Flame: Uncommon Mother-Daughter Wisdom

Dialogues with questions at the end for individual and group study.
