Hands on Faith

Lynette Sarah Plett
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Hands on faith expresses my faith that the many women who have journeyed through life before me -- my mother, my grandmother and the ancient women before them -- although on different paths than mine, will nevertheless guide my journey.

Drawing on their strength and wisdom will alleviate my anxieties about leaving behind an established life in Manitoba to begin, in my late thirties, an unknown journey as a female doctoral student in Toronto.
