Program Notes

Lesley was delighted to be joined today by Bestselling Author and Speaker, Agapi Stassinopoulos.


Listeners will be soothed, inspired and entertained by this lovely conversation about God, as understood in the traditional sense and as being much more. Agapi shares beautiful insights from her life starting with the unique and elegant way of seeing life that was a gift from her mother to her great spiritual teacher and how these two and life itself shaped her and the prayers that she offers in each of her much acclaimed books. As Agapi shares from her latest book, Speaking with Spirit, 52 Prayers to Guide, Inspire, and uplift you, she offers both readings from the prayers and insights to the stories that inspired each of them.
