About this title


From Pebble to Pathways begins as a journey of loss and challenge, yet in the telling becomes an inspiring tale of insight and growth, ultimately illuminated by profound spiritual connection and understanding.  

Donna Thomas was the child of an alcoholic mother and roaming father who divorced when she was eight.  While her brothers and she were awarded to her father, they were often left alone days or weeks at a time.  With her father's absence, Donna unwittingly found herself prey to bullies in school and neighborhood boys.

Despite growing up in a family ill-suited to the demands of nurturing and protecting her, Donna rejected submitting to a life of suffering, refusing to get angry, turn to apathy, or become self-destructive. Instead she devoted herself to seeking the tools and teachers to find awareness, peace, and empowerment.

Embarking on numerous intriguing adventures--experiences often steeped in mystical significance that offered her a deeper understanding of herself and her connection to all living things--Donna evolved to a place where her early personal turmoil no longer defined her.  

Holding nothing back, From Pebbles to Pathways is bracingly honest and deeply reflective, a powerful memoir that exemplifies the quest to find inner peace--no matter the pain of the past--while imparting that healing, hope, and wisdom exist abundantly for each of us.


"Though a memoir of an individual journey, From Pebbles to Pathways along the way reveals universal truths about the human condition. In relentlessly questioning the meaning of relationships, emotional responses and life experiences, the book's raw honesty and innocence gives it an unusual, page-turning power. Not only does the past not make us, it says, but trust in the strange but wondrous ways of the universe will reveal a perfect pattern to our lives. In the author's case, this only became fully apparent in the process of writing. Yet in the tradition of great spiritual autobiographies, deeply personal insights can trigger insights and realizations in the many. An exemplary 21st century spiritual work."

Tom Butler-Bowdon, author of 50 Self-Help Classics, 50 Spiritual Classics

“...The depth and honesty of this book surprises as it exemplifies one woman's process of coming to terms with herself and healing the heart. From Pebbles to Pathways is a compelling glimpse into the journey of a formidable woman who’s early life was spent struggling to find security and safety, and loosing herself along the way. Through her relentless commitment to well-being, and her riveting inner and spiritual journeys, we watch her courageously create a life of fulfillment. The stories in each chapter, and the profound insights that follow, inspire the reader to find the good in oneself, the courage to love, and recognize the endless opportunities life has to offer, regardless of circumstance.”

Margaret Paul, Ph.D., best-selling author and co-creator of Inner Bonding® and SelfQuest®

“All teachers must first be pupils. As they grow, the blank slate with which they began life becomes colored in hues often dark—the ragged scars of growing, learning, and loving. The trick, Donna Thomas tells us in her sometimes harrowing memoir, From Pebbles to Pathways, is to divine the lessons from the damage, the light from the sorrow, and to absorb—and, ultimately, impart—the wisdom that ensues. Somewhat to her own surprise, Thomas evolved into one of life’s teachers, a healer of uncommon grace and intuition... What is striking about the book is not just the clarity the author brings to her own healing, but her talent in discerning the lessons all of us should be learning.”

Nick Madigan, former correspondent for The New York Times and The Washington Post
