Lois Grant grew up in the forties and fifties and led a "normal" life for a Midwestern girl. She was led to explore astrology first, then moved to other spiritual interests with the primary goal of healing her arthritis. The story of her personal growth and spiritual as well as physical healing are the subjects of her book, Spirit at Work, A Journey of Healing. She demonstrates that there are alternative healing modalities which can bring about desired results without the side effects of traditional Western medicine. She feels strongly that healing takes place from the inside out.
