Daphne Reiley is the founder of Ripples of Grace, a consulting practice meeting communities of faith in their mission to include the isolated. Daphne has found that isolation takes many forms and that communities of faith, in particular, should be but are often not very good at meeting the needs of isolated individuals and families.
Ripples of Grace provides education to organizations desiring to better address ways of reaching out to isolated populations. Daphne offers workshops to professional organizations as well as communities of faith. She also facilitates retreats for pastors, congregational leaders, and groups of individuals.
Along with her favorite co-author Joseph LaGuardia, she is working on a companion book to their previously published “A Tapestry of Love, the Spirituality of Caregiving”. The work in progress – “Taking It to Heart” – is a book aimed at those receiving long-term care.
