Peggy Fisher's Search Lights for My Soul is an uplifting collection of reflections and affirmations wrapped in the comforting text of Biblical passages.

Using passages from the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible (which the author points out was her mother's favorite Bible and is the version she, herself chooses to use) Fisher guides her readers from Biblical passage to affirmation with gentle ease. Her slim volume of writing is grouped into "Prayers and Meditations," "Building Bridges with Love," "Thinking Big," and "Search Lights for our Journey." Within each chapter, readers find comfort, encouragement and strength.

From the back cover of the book: "In Search Lights for My Soul, she reminds us that we are born with the Creator's divine light. This light allows us to swim when we are shipwrecked by the storms of life, but it gets covered with the shadows and pain in our respective paths."

Peggy M. Fisher holds an MA from Teachers College, Columbia University. She has had a varied professional life including careers as a registered nurse, an army officer, teacher and guidance counselor. She is now a retired mother of three who writes, practices meditation and classical yoga. She is the author of Lifting Voices: Voices of the Collective Struggle, and has had poems appear in various anthologies including Commemorating Excellence: the 1998 Presidential Awards.
