Epiphanies happen to most of us at some point in our lives.  Elisa Ballard, actress, filmmaker, and author had one of her own, and from there, she went on to capture inspirational cameos of the epiphanies of others.  Creator of  The Epiphany Channel, Elisa has worked hard to to compile the remarkable stories of  celebrities, social entrepreneurs, artists, and everyday people in her book, "Epiphany").  From Bishop Desmond Tutu and Maya Angelou, to Craig Newmark, Cory Booker, she also includes the life changing moments of musicians and grade-school teachers.

"I have people e-mailing me from all over the world. It's a big community now. When something is true and right for you, when something is meant to be, it will flow. One of the drivers of my work is to get people to think about the epiphanies they've had and how to cultivate epiphanies in their lives. The process ends up being incredibly powerful."

Each story begins with background information of the subject and the interview, followed by a first-person account of the life-changing moment. This style is fun because you get to read these accounts in the voice of the person who experienced it. It's not simply a re-telling but a reliving.
