A retired educator, Dena can now spend time sailing off the southern California coast, reading a variety of genres which includes anything and everything on spirituality, and continuing to explore the mountains and high desert in her small RV. She maintains and nurtures a close relationship with her grown daughter and lives happily in Ventura, California with her cattle dog mix, Jack.

What is spirituality? How does spirituality relate to my life? How do I develop spiritual beliefs? How can I use my spiritual beliefs in my every day life? What is death?

Exploring your spirituality is a journey that can help you to figure out who you are, who you can be, how you fit into the world, and how you can make a difference in the world around you. But, understanding your spirituality can sometimes feel like you are putting together a puzzle without a picture to guide you. Unpuzzling Spirituality helps the reader put together the many spiritual puzzle-pieces to help create a big, happy, peaceful, purposeful, and loving life.

Let’s unpuzzle your spirituality together...
