Voices of Transformation: The Trilogy
Part One: Coming Home
Available 2022
Pre-Order Coming Soon!

Voices of Transformation: Coming Home, recounts my journey of self-discovery throughout the African continent and how I learned to transform my suffering into highly positive vibes through the practice of Love in Action. After years of struggle and lack of self-direction, I reached a point where I knew I had to let go of my old self, heal myself, become a blank page for life to write on, and to connect with the world on a larger wavelength––the wavelength of compassion and love. “Coming Home” is about how my first and powerful teacher of transformation, Rev. Ann Mugane, also called Mama John, taught me to turn the death of my mother and the end of my marriage into a catalyst for global change. I wanted to write about this experience for others going through tough times to help them learn how to transform their negative experiences.

Mama John’s faith accomplished miracles that glowed brightly at her Merciful Redeemer Children’s Home amid utter darkness. I remember witnessing what felt like prayer after touring the school the first time I visited her in Kenya. Mama John turned to the nearly 100 children gathered before us and said, “We are people expecting MIR-A-CLES! You may not know. But God KNOWS our needs! And I always tell you that when you pray…God answers prayers in HIS OWN WAY. You never know what God is going to do after today. Isn’t that an answered prayer? He is a God working MIR-A-CLES. He is a God working MIR-A-CLES. We are expecting Him to perform miracles from today! AMEN!”

Although Mama John was a fervent Catholic, it is her towering conviction that anything negative could transform into a positive, and her relentless faith that has left her mark in this world.

She received the miracles she talked about just like she said––not in her way or her timing. So did I.

Part Two: Sponsored

Glow: “Sponsored”, tells heartfelt stories that speak to the positive impact of sponsorship and highlights expected and unexpected ways the experience has enriched the lives of everyone involved, including my own. Sponsorship is much more than a beautiful way to make a difference. It also teaches us that our differences aren’t that great. The more I work with different people in different countries all over the world, I realize just how similar we really are. We all need the same stuff––nourishing food to eat, a safe place to live, education, health, and the ability to pursue our unique strengths and talents. And it was this simple discovery that caused me to expand my sponsorship to more and more countries.

Part Three: Sanctuary

Sanctuary profiles animal rescue projects from around the world, including Costa Rica, Morocco and Puerto Rico. Although I had originally begun my own animal sanctuary project following the “How to start and run an animal sanctuary” workshop I took at Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah in 2014, life unexpectedly led me to explore how others have managed to operate their rescues instead. This is also a photographic journey since capturing moments in this way is particularly valuable to my personal artistic inquiry.
