In this book, Dr. Susie gives the reader a view of her personal journey through the clinical pastoral education (CPE) process. From this book, the reader will learn that many people become chaplains, as a result of going through the CPE process. Whether one becomes a chaplain or serves in another ministry, the self-reflection and growth experienced from the CPE process help make us better people. Dr. Susan Street-Beavers shares that the growth that she experienced caused her to write, "What in "h" was I thinking?" The "h" means heaven. The benefits gained by going through the CPE process can help to aid the CPE journeyer in her/his walk with God as we strive to share divinity with those that we are called to serve. -Dr. James A Nooks
