Janis Ian

This spiritual memoir of a remarkable woman—musician, author, missionary—will inspire not only those who know her work but anyone interested in living a life of love and service. 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 spirit, water and the stars, spiritual blessedness and much more. Each chapter is like a short story, complete in itself but revealing new aspects of the author’s life and vision. Each one begins with a personal experience and segues into a spiritual lesson that will resonate in your mind and heart. You will come to know Miriam Theresa Winter as a friend and in the process understand more about your own life and the purpose God has for you.
