The Soul of a Pilgrim Summer Blog Book Tour: Video Interview with Christine

book-tour-buttonThis summer I am on a blog book tour to share more about my newest book The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within.

I am delighted this week to be interviewed on video by my lovely friend and colleague Kayce Stevens Hughlett at her website Live it to Give it.

Today it is my delight and privilege to share with you a recent interview with friend and colleague, Christine Valters Paintner. Christine is the online Abbess at Abbey of the Arts. She and I have been friends for many years and both find great pleasure in discussing the topic of pilgrimage.

In this 20-minute interview, we touch upon the interplay of pilgrimage in marriage, reflecting backward while moving forward, where does an abbess live, listening to the hard places (i.e. welcoming discomfort), journeying at home, and more.
