To find our calling is to find the intersection
between our own deep gladness and the world's deep hunger.

— Frederick Buechner

Welcome to the
Book Editor's Page

  As she neared the winter season of life, Barbara Kammerlohr returned to the small Kentucky town on the Ohio River where she grew up. There, she bought a small house next to a cornfield and spends her time walking her dog, weeding the flower beds, perfecting her paintings, volunteering, re-connecting with extended family, and doing the reflection common to all those who  have lived a complex life.
