NIV Bible for Women, Zondervan, 2015

I am a contributor to the NIV Bible for Women: Fresh Insights for Thriving in Today’s World.* The scripture I wrote about was Isaiah 9:2:

On a warmer-than-usual day in February of 2012, the kids were in the back seat of the car, waiting for me. Before I got into the driver’s seat, I stood by the door to take one last look around at the home where I had lived for the last five years. My eyes took in the scene, and tears began to fall. My heart cried out.
