Mary Manin Morrissey
Minister, teacher, and author Mary Morrissey's own dreams were nearly shattered
at age 16, when pregnancy forced her into a reluctant marriage that nevertheless became the crucible for remarkable lessons in
faith. As she was tested by the near-death of one of her children, by life-threatening kidney disease, and by years of
struggling to make ends meet, she clung to her determination to be a minister.
Today Ms. Morrissey is the Senior Minister at Living Enrichment Center in
Oregon, a New Thought church with a 3000-member congregation.
In Building Your Field of Dreams (review or buy), Mary Manin Morrissey supports us in following our dreams. Using powerful examples from many dream-builders she has known, Ms. Morrissey shows how we can identify our deepest desires, build a partnership with God, confront obstacles and failure, and overcome the mental blocks that keep us from our potential. It's a great message, compellingly delivered by a great teacher.
In No Less Than Greatness (review or buy), Mary Manin Morrissey affirms that we are not alone in our spiritual search. When we learn to ask for and listen to divine guidance, we access a different kind of wisdom. Beginning with her own surprising story, Mary Morrissey shows how ordinary or even estranged relationships are a curriculum for learning love.
