Now she has collected her insights into a practical, funny and inspirational handbook for everyone thinking about serving the Bahá’í Faith away from home. Wondering where to go? What to pack? Worried about being homesick? Or eating the food? Thinking you might not manage living with strangers? And how about, well, um, facilities? Scared of teaching children or junior youth?

Denali's down-to-earth handbook will help you to ‘seize your moment, to make your mark on the destiny of humankind’ and to have a truly fulfilling year of service.
