INTEGRATING SPIRITUALITY and photography takes us on a powerful journey, which deepens the way we experience photography—whether a full day or a few minutes. The process we followed moved us from running out the door in search of the “magical perfect picture” to a day of receiving the gift of light sent our way through the eyes of the heart and soul. We finish the day with more than a series of pictures. We return home with a renewed sense of the Spirit’s companionship, a newly attuned eye to see God in the world, and a soul that has been fed by seeing the story God placed in front of us.
—Valerie K. Isenhower, Meditation on Both Sides of the Camera: A Spiritual Journey in Photography (Upper Room Books, 2012)
