"One of the strongest spiritual women's fiction pieces to appear in recent years"--Midwest Book Review
Everything is going great in Lorna Crawford’s life. She has a fantastic husband, a two-year-old with another child on the way, a posse of girlfriends, and a new marketing job with a cutting-edge health apps company. The spiritual practices she has made a centerpiece in her life—yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and more—are becoming second nature. But four months into her pregnancy, Lorna discovers there may be something wrong with her unborn baby “Deuxie,” a prospect that throws her life and her inner peace into turmoil. Will her spiritual practices be enough to get her through the months of not-knowing—and possibly through a horrific diagnosis?
Downward Dog, Upward Fog was named a fiction book of the year
finalist by Foreword Reviews
"An inspirational gem that will appeal to introspective, evolving women"
Out of sorts and filled with self-doubt, Lorna Crawford realizes that what she really wants is to stay on the spiritual path she keeps diving off of. Lorna jump-starts her efforts at a silent yoga retreat. But after returning from the mountain, she quickly loses her connection in the face of scheming coworkers, judgmental girlfriends, a less-than-perfect relationship, and, especially, her overly critical mother. Lorna’s seeking is put to the ultimate test when personal tragedy strikes. Will she come to understand that living spiritually has little to do with how you pretzel yourself on the yoga mat (although she gets plenty good at that), and everything to do with embracing the twists in everyday life?
My Enlightened Parenting book
of essays was a National Indie Excellence Award finalist
"Touches on one of the most important aspects of parenting"
--Your Soul Purpose Podcast
Staying on a spiritual path is so much easier before you have kids. With no time to run off to yoga or meditation, parenting often becomes your prime spiritual practice. This turns out to be perfect, because connecting to the love we feel for our child opens us up to the lofty energy of our highest self. The book's 55 essays range from shifts in your thinking (Pass the Pepper With Adoration, Say Goodbye to Guilting) to actions and activities (Make Silence Truly Golden, Put a Spiritual Mark on Birthdays) to little things for nurturing yourself (Anoint Yourself Each Morning, Carve Out a Sacred Space). You’ll find love and inspiration, whatever your religious leanings.
