For amateurs and professionals alike, this book is the story of photography's power to renew the spirit. Jan Phillips helps us transform sight into vision, leading us to see that images can be mirrors for our deepest truths, even in our simple snapshots. "The real thing about photography," Jan says, "is that it brings you home to yourself, connects you to what fulfills your deepest longings. Every step in the process is a step toward the light, an encounter with the God who is at eye level, whose image I see wherever I look. There's something holy about this work. Like the pilgrim's journey; it's heaven all the way."

From the Back Cover:

Anyone who has ever seen hope in sun-dappled trees or joy in a child running in water and longed to capture the image's meaning can learn to use photography to enhance the spirit. Award-winning author Jan Phillips helps us see the subjects we love as metaphors to express what moves us most profoundly. The people, objects, and landscapes we are drawn to photograph have power to center us in the present, soothe the injured spirit, and lead us to our deepest truths. Through taking pictures, we can explore which images bring us comfort, which give us strength, and which we treasure most. Jan's own photographs, personal stories, and practical exercises, as well as inspirational quotes from other photographers, will inspire amateurs and professionals alike.
