Peer Review

"Valerie Peyton Kingsbury's Creating Spaces for Healing and Hope is not only interesting and therefore worth reading - but it is far more!  It is a moving, uplifting and inspiring account of her experience as a pastor in ministering to the dying and their families.  Her vital personal faith as well as her impressive pastoral gifts of caring and compassion shine through beautifully in her written words."
