Read our latest book

My Soul’s Journey to Redefine Leadership: A New Phoenix Rises from the Ashes of 9/11 (Xlibris 2017)  

“Virginia Swain’s memoir is inspiring.  It is rare for us mere humans to know God directly, far more rare to repeatedly receive divine guidance throughout life. We see how Virginia’s willingness to listen and obey God leaders her back and forth across the country, into and out of relationships and very different tasks. She is led and supported by God’s loving affirmation. Thebook answers both what a Spirit-led life looks like and how a loving God nurtures individuals.”  MichaelMesman, Co-editor, What Canst Thou Say
