How LUMI was born
While working with women to help them discover what ‘lights them up’, she was inspired to write an inspirational coming-of-light story about LUMI the lightning bug who bumbles her way into her natural brilliance.  People of all ages can benefit from this story! We are grateful to be connected to the Hay House publishing family.
