Today, I am in Cincinnati where I met up with Daniel Epstein, marketing and innovation consultant based in Toronto, Canada, who, in search to fill the God-sized hole in his life created Portraits in Faith, a global project which combines his passions of helping others heal, bringing people of different faiths and cultures together, global travel, and photography.

Healing through “Portraits in Faith”
It was May of 2013 when Sally, a friend from church told me about Daniel Epstein’s launch of Portraits in Faith, a series of video interviews and black-and-white portraits featuring people of all different faiths and cultures.
I spent hours reading and watching everything posted. While my kids and my husband were asleep I took advantage of the solitude and silence in which I was able to really listen to the interviews. I listened without judgment or fear, letting these people bless me and heal me despite our differences.
Like Daniel, I was in the process of healing, and the fact that he looked in many places for God and with such an open heart felt comforting to me…
Daniel interviewed me for the Portraits in Faith series a few months later in September of 2013. I was nervous about telling my faith story, knowing full well that I was in a middle of another ‘spiritual growth spurt.’
When I started shooting Waking Up in America TV show, I thought of Daniel and wanted to interview him about his journey. This way our paths, and our stories crossed again. <<<Read more on my blog.
