Saluda, NC (PressExposure) July 07, 2011 -- Divine Arts Media announces the August 2011 release of Sophia - The Feminine Face of God: Nine Heart Paths to Healing and Abundance by Karen Speerstra.
Speerstra is a veteran writer, editor, and expert on feminine spirituality. For more than 20 years she pondered writing Sophia - The Feminine Face of God. When publisher Michael Wiese asked her if she had anything "in the works" for his new imprint, Divine Arts Media, the book began taking shape.
In Sophia - The Feminine Face of God, Speerstra delves deep into faith traditions worldwide to reveal their wisdom. The book encourages readers to find the "essential feminine divine" within themselves and others. Each of the nine chapters focuses on gifts of the feminine spirit: joy, self-control, generosity, peace, faithfulness, patience, kindness, gentleness, and love, all within the context of abundance, rather than scarcity.
