Spiritual Book


Published on

Dancing in the Doghouse is my spiritual autobiography. It is about my struggles through mental illness and my desire to tell my story today as a source of hope to others. It's about other things too, especially the ways God was with me- even in the really hard places. It's also about encouraging others to tell their story to reduce isolation and give others hope. Spiritual autobiography can be about all of these things and so much more, but I can’t tell you what it will mean for you. You have to figure that part out for yourself! But, I will help you get started. View this slide presentation to begin!
