About the Book

Ever pick a daisy—or a black-eyed Susan—pluck its petals and chant, “Loves me, loves me not?” If the final petal tells you, “Loves me not,” how do you feel? If we give our power to a flower, to how many others do we give it away? Ever shrink from hurtful words and think you are a nothing? Blame an evil twin for your actions? Hear a voice trying to get your attention? Or do you just want a ticket to somewhere else? If so, step aboard and travel to lush locales and ordinary places as a daughter who felt fatherless engages her inner wisdom, pieces together the puzzle of who she is and learns that life’s most important journey is into her heart. Unravel the mystery of Susan—from a bungalow in World War II Hawaii to a prayer group in southern California—as Christine and her all-knowing tour guide relive life experiences, witness miraculous connections, reframe the past and agree to walk into the future side by side. Learn as Christine listens to a still small voice, lets in the light, transforms dark experiences by viewing them from a higher perspective, takes out fresh paint brushes and recreates her life canvas using new patterns and colors. Celebrate with Christine as she embraces new definitions of self and family. Participate in intimate conversations that leave enough space around words to ignite your imagination, inspire your own journey and assure you, “If I can do it, you can too!”

About the Author

Teacher, volunteer leader and award-winning entrepreneur, Christine Cummings knew little about her biological father. She searched for missing pieces of her personal puzzle, found new family and learned that her true Father is the One who matters. “Home is wherever I am,” says Christine—a prayer practitioner licensed by the Centers for Spiritual Living—who winters in Palm Desert, California, and summers on the road with husband Dave.
