Stories of Spiritual Leaders--Includes Marcus Bach's books: Had I Been Born In Another Faith

I haven't done a podcast for awhile! It's about time...

I frequently use the quote: "Oh, if the world could only stop long enough for one generation of mothers to be alright, what a Millennium could be begun in thirty years!"

Would you like to know more about the woman behind the quote?
