A Map for the Soul… Compassionate Journey cover photoWoznica’s book examines questions such as why we continue to journey in a particular direction even though we know, deep down, it is not the right path, and why we live with no peace in our souls. Woznica shares his own journey that took him to a place of compassion and life-changing decisions.

From the WestBow Press website: “Was it God or his personal choices that led him to this? Was it an accident or God’s loving plan? There are journeys we take, trips we plan, and decisions we make. There are weeks and years ahead of us with adventures waiting.”

Simpson University’s Communication and Modern Foreign Language Department includes a communication major with specializations in journalism, Spanish journalism, mass communication, public communication, organizational communication; a Spanish major; and a Spanish language certificate.
