Transforming Moments; The Miracle Workbook
By exploring the seen and unseen world, Transforming Moments; The Miracle Workbook encourages the reader to find the miraculous in everyday life. Sharon's personal vignettes offer a springboard for the reader's own reflections. Her adventures include being held at gunpoint as a stowaway on a train to East Berlin, almost being blown up by the eruption of Mt. St. Helens, and a fair share of ghosts and angels. Following each story, the reader is invited to participate in a suggested exercise and writing activity in this unique, interactive journal/narrative. Transforming Moments; The Miracle Workbook is designed to be marked up, doodled on, passed around and treasured.
Suspect or Saint
Suspect or Saint? is the story of an unlikely friendship between Nina, a troubled young woman, and Everest, the seminarian she sees for counseling. Through the course of their sessions, hints of a dark event in Everestís past are revealed to Nina, while simultaneously Everest uncovers clues about a secret that Nina has hidden even from her conscious self. Through Ninaís exhibition of multiple personalities -- Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria -- light is shed on the past she has repressed. Suspect or Saint? is a psychological portrait of secrets, denial, dual lives, how the innocent become guilty and, when that happens, the lies we tell ourselves and the lies we tell one another. Moreover, Suspect or Saint? is a tale of the redemptive qualities of true friendship and its healing power to overcome even the most devastating trials.
