How do we contend with common life challenges like misunderstandings, limitations, unmet needs or self-defeating patterns? How can we love who we are, imperfections and all? Through these collected essays we see one model that examines a variety of answers to such questions. Specifically, this contemplative, spirited, hopeful narrative reveals how Deshae applies her spiritual philosophy of mindful, joyful living to enhance her own life. Along the way she invites, even challenges, readers to create similar philosophies suited to their unique experiences. While the essays are non-denominational by design, the themes throughout all pieces explore one's relationship to God (Spirit) and how to cultivate a reverence for life.
