The book has received raving reviews. Kirkus Discoveries raved “Kyra’s advice and experiences are complemented by Derksen’s highly chromatic, eyeball-achingly sharp photographs, which ground the reader and suggest the transformative power of nature. More simply, they’re beautiful. Steve Harrison, publisher of the RADIO-TV INTERVIEW REPORT, adds “Give yourself or a friend the gift of beauty, peace, and wisdom. Give them this book!”
In Welcome Home to Yourself, Suzanne Kyra and son Nathan Derksen weave words and images that illuminate the most profound and basic elements of the human experience. Their book combines compassionate and provocative narrative with rich, poetic photographs of nature, deepening the reader’s curiosity and joy for life. “This book is an inspirational photo journal on how to live successfully-no matter what life brings you,” states Kyra. “The book’s message is that we can always call on our connection with nature to help discover the abundance of joy in each one of us.”
Kyra wrote this book as the first in a trilogy. This book shares her message with the world: “My life’s work is supporting people to empower themselves to become bigger, better and more beautiful than they ever imagined.” Given that a picture is worth a thousand words, Kyra adds that “I felt the addition of my son’s extraordinary photography talent would be an excellent tool in illuminating the beauty experienced in nature and in ourselves. It was a beautiful experience working together that brought our relationship closer.” Kyra’s other younger son is now hoping to have his turn to work with Mom on the next book.
Welcome Home to Yourself is distributed through Morgan James Publishing and Ingram Books. It is available to order through Amazon.com, Chapters and other major booksellers. More information on ordering or arranging for an appearance can be found at http://www.suzannekyra.com.

Rev. Vicki Marriner is known by those closest to her as a clairvoyant, a psychic medium and a spiritual healer. But it wasnt always this way. In fact, for most of her life, Marriner wasnt even aware of the spiritual gifts she possessed, which she discusses in her new book, Angels and Lamb Chops: A Spiritual Journey (published by Balboa Press).
It wasnt until the devastating loss of one of her twin newborn babies that Marriner began to understand her connection to another world. The traumatic event sent Marriner catapulting down a path of grief and hardship that eventually lead to self-discovery and a spiritual awakening. Marriner writes about her journey in the new spiritual memoir, Angels and Lamb Chops.
A tribute to her twin girls, who were nicknamed Angel and Lamb Chop upon their birth, Marriners book provides readers with a brutally honest account of some of lifes most difficult moments and gives encouragement to persevere.
Forgiving ourselves is the biggest lesson in life, Marriner says. If our soul is free of past baggage, we can move forward with love in our hearts for what is ahead.
Moving forward is exactly what Marriner did. She developed an unusual outlook on life one that married traditional religious views with progressive New Age beliefs about spirituality. Today, she is happy performing marriage ceremonies along with psychic readings and spiritual cleansings.
Marriner says she hopes her own life experiences can inspire others to become more grounded to their lives here on Earth and more connected to the nearby spiritual world. Only then, Marriner says, can we achieve personal growth, understand the power of forgiveness, and find peace with ourselves.
