The Soulmaking Room is about using the difficult and challenging experiences of your life to become more authentic and more truly who you are created to be. Dee Dee Risher addresses love, race, money, parenting, class, environmental crisis, and spiritual wandering with refreshing honesty. To explore these issues, she taps into her life experiences growing up as a white, middle-class Southern woman who lived with rural African-American families in eastern North Carolina, worked in China and the inner-city of Washington, D.C., and chose to live and raise her family in a poor and working-class neighborhood in Philadelphia. Drawing loosely on the biblical story of the prophet Elisha and the woman who built him a holy room, she explores how we create a space for spiritual growth, how we keep working toward justice, and how we live truthfully.
