About the Author

Molly Srode is a retired hospital chaplain in her early 60s. A spiritual seeker, Molly shares details of her own spiritual journey (she was once a Catholic nun and educator) with readers of all faith traditions with ease. She and her husband, Bernie Srode, a former priest, have been actively pursuing their spiritual lives together over the past twenty-five years. They are publishers of the Senior Spirituality Newsletter and coauthors of Keeping Spiritual Balance As We Grow Older: More than 65 Creative Ways to Use Purpose, Prayer, and the Power of Spirit to Build a Meaningful Retirement (SkyLight Paths). When they are not traveling, they make their home in Columbus, Ohio.
