About the Book

“Journey to Daybreak is a spiritual guide for those who are experiencing a season of darkness on their path to a new day of light. In this wonderful little book, Martha Toney has explored the hidden shadows of everyday life and found not only many pathways to the light but also hidden blessings to be treasured in the darkness. With poignant personal anecdotes and a rich banquet of Christian wisdom from the past, she gives the reader a road map to daybreak and the encouragement to follow it” (Dr. John W. Howe, Episcopal bishop of Central Florida, retired).

“Dr. Toney’s journey is an outstanding and insightful guide for those traveling through a dark season on their way to daybreak” (Pat Williams, Orlando Magic senior vice president, author of Wooden’s Forgotten Teams).

“From the front steps of her childhood home to international operatic stages then onward to more than a decade at hospital bedsides, Dr. Martha Toney shares her remarkable spiritual journey in service to all who, in times of grief or fear, may be questioning the direction of our lives or our very existence. Her compassionate and compelling meditations guide us to draw counsel and courage from the depths of our shadow experiences and rekindle the light of our life’s purpose” (Katherine Ciesinski, internationally renowned American mezzo-soprano, professor of voice, Eastman School of Music).
