Welcome to Pearl Orthodox Christian Publishing, Orthodox Christian books, and the website for author, Veronica Hughes!
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”
We can spend our whole life searching for inner peace and truth. That is what I did! Thanks to the providence of God and the support of many good people, my search brought me to my "Pearl of Great Price", Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
Since discovering this sacred treasure, I have felt called to write about my experiences and share what I have learned in the light of the teachings of the Gospels, Saints of the Orthodox Church, the Jesus Prayer, and how we are transformed by grace into the image and likeness of God.

Book II, A Leap of Faith
Reviewed in the United States on February 15, 2022
"Book II, A Leap of Faith is the third and final book in my autobiographical Orthodox book series. This book chronicles the last earthly Orthodox spiritual journey my late husband, Gregory, and I made together - we moved into the semi-wilderness to live on our land next to an Orthodox monastery. Together, we chose to accept, trust, and have faith in where God was leading us, despite our disappointments, struggles, doubts, and fears. Were we crazy to want to follow the “way of the ascetics”?
It was the opportunity of a lifetime that provided essential spiritual stepping stones for both of us. What we experienced, learned, and lived together helped both of us to find a deeper connection to our faith, prayer, and God, which then gave us the courage and strength to make the challenging transitions that awaited us when we returned to the world.
May our hard-earned lessons be of service to you in your Orthodox journey. We left the world for a time to fulfill our calling. May this book inspire the fulfillment of your Orthodox callings and dreams as well. As my dear, late husband, Gregory frequently chanted throughout his day, “God is good! God brings good out of everything! Glory to God for all things!”
