Combining storytelling and courageous honesty for those who seek spiritually optimistic guidance, this compilation of inspiring stories of female creativity and compassion demonstrates the art of storytelling at its best. Consisting of approximately two dozen nonfiction essays—by authors such as Lauren Artress, Christina Baldwin, Bobbi Gibb, Mama Donna Henes, Jyoti, Dr. Gladys McGarey, Suni Paz, Hagit Ra'anan, Sheri Ritchlin, and Janet Riehl—each unique story is a celebration of courageous women living spiritual lives in the face of challenging circumstances. These authors go beyond the limits of their everyday existence to find that challenges are really just opportunities to reach into their souls and find meaning and new strength in life.
The Spirit of a Woman: Stories to Empower and Inspire has been named a 2011 Nautilus Book Awards Silver Medal Winner : Nautilus Book Awards recognize books that promote spiritual growth, conscious living, and positive social change, offering the readers "new possibilities" for a better life and a better world.

The Spirit of a Woman: Stories to Empower and Inspire is a celebration of courageous women living spiritual lives in challenging circumstances. They are spiritual optimists and activists. Some have used the backgrounds of their cultures and religious traditions to lead richer more meaningful lives. Some have moved from one faith to many faiths. Others have left tradition behind to encounter spirit in new and wonderful ways. And each of them sees life as a sacred trust. The women who wrote the stories in this book come from many nations, ages, and personal histories. They have encountered the difficulties that are part of a fully lived life, and they have seen them in the light of eternity and the wholeness of creation. Instead of fleeing the unknown, they have honored the mystery and faced fear with faith. Where once there were closed doors, they have found openings to new choices and possibilities. They tell us how love and prayer, forgiveness and hope, dance and serving others have transformed and healed them. They invite us to live our dreams and speak our truths, and when we have read their stories, we will know that we can.
