This is a beautiful book. Karen is a very good teacher, and her experiences have motivated her to work on behalf of the lives of others. -- Khen Rinpoche, abbot of the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery (in exile), as appointed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama I'm touched by how Karen heroically turns a painful near-death experience into a beautiful search for meaning, where she meets Jesus, St. Francis and God. The book you hold in your hands can bring you peace, laughter and a new way of looking at life. -- Chade-Meng Tan, Jolly Good Fellow of Google and best-selling author of 'Search Inside Yourself' It was either by chance or fate that I met Karen Henson Jones at a local coffee shop. I met an incredibly optimistic, spiritual woman, full of life. I would have never known that she endured many years of pain and experiences that would have left most lifeless, literally or metaphorically, but not Karen. Her optimism comes from her belief in something greater than ourselves. This book is an uplifting and inspiring chronicle of that journey. -- Ken Paves, humanitarian, beauty expert and author of 'You Are Beautiful'
