Rev. Mary Mitchellís destiny was launched with a degree in Forest Industries Management from Ohio State University. Her interest in metaphysics was pivotal to her success in the industry and the last decade of her career managing a resource conservation district.
Soon after moving to California, Mary found her spiritual home at the Center for Spiritual Living where she began classes in the Science of Mind philosophy. This propelled her into deeper study, which was supported by her love of writing. She was licensed as a Religious Science Practitioner in 1993, a Minister in 2003, and was ordained in 2008.
When she retired from the conservation district in 2012, she was asked to serve as interim co-pastor at the Center in Redding until a new pastor was hired. Two years later, what she didnít expect was the impact her lessons on the science of our mind and our relationship with Infinite Intelligence would turn into life-changing experiences for the congregation plus two new books and the third edition of this book.
This edition is a natural follow-up to Maryís previous publications (written under Mary E. Schroeder): Jump into Life with James Golden; The Practitioner Handbook (first and second editions); and Engaging Grace: How to Use the Power of Co-Creation in Daily Life. Every day Mary is inspired by the lake, mountains, and wildlife around her home in Cottonwood, California, where she lives with her wonderfully supportive husband, Paul Mitchell, and their persnickety cat, Max.
