Louisville, KY (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
In her new book, “Beloved Teacher: My Journey with the Holy Spirit” (published by Trafford Publishing), author Patricia Ramsey shares her life story in an effort to show readers the healing power of faith and guide them toward peace and fulfillment.
“Most people, at some time in their lives, seek change,” Ramsey writes. “They want to grow beyond their failures, heartaches and losses. In my writing I am open and share not only my light but also my dark places in my life.”
Ramsey found understanding and guidance in the Holy Spirit, but her journey has not always been easy. “Beloved Teacher” chronicles her spiritual growth, from her childhood in Appalachia to her work with dream therapy, education, family therapy and church involvement. She writes openly and honestly about feelings of doubt and vulnerability, and her willingness to share her faults reveals a strong reliance on the Holy Spirit and an ability to recognize the blessings in her life.
An excerpt from “Beloved Teacher”:
“If we want to experience healing in our lives, we must face our darkness and acknowledge it. Anytime we leave a part of ourselves split off from the whole we are in trouble. We can continue to deny that rejected part but reality is that it does exist and it will rise up repeatedly to plague us. There is tragedy in not acknowledging the dark side, for it is the part of us that can be the most healing in the lives of others.”
