|From Copper to Gold tells the story of Dorothy Baker's life, a life that was an extraordinary example of spiritual transformation and growth. As a child, Dorothy Baker had the rare opportunity to meet Abdu'l-Baha, a meeting that proved to be the catalyst for a life of service, prayerful devotion, and courageous deeds. This is not only the touching story of a devoted Baha'i and her life of service, but also that of a wife, mother, and friend, whose love of God, obedience to the Covenant of Baha'u'llah, and selfless acts of service were a testimony to her belief.
She managed to transcend the daily challenges of life with grace and fortitude-proving to be a source of inspiration to others. She also served the Baha'i community with distinction as an eloquent speaker and writer, a gifted administrator, traveling teacher, and later as a Hand of the Cause of God. Dorothy Baker reflects the transformative power of the Baha'i Faith.
