ABOUT THE BOOK:

When bad things happen, what is your reaction? Do you trust God even when you don’t understand?

There was a dark season in my life when it literally felt like an earthquake had occurred. Everything in my life seemed to be falling apart…my family, my finances, our church. And I asked God the simple question, “Why?” This book is the result of my own search for answers. In the end, God gave me illustrations that I will share with you and brought healing to my heart and my distorted view of Him. I was able to trust Him again, even though my circumstances had not changed.

Quick Pick Two

From the Book:

Home. Had the house in Haldingston ever really felt like one? Yes, at times, with her mother, but since, she had just known fear and then a wall, much like that which surrounded her now. She was reluctant to let people in, even those closest to her. What had Lorenda called the castle? A mortuary. Chills ran up her spine as she stood and quietly walked toward the door of the keep. The wind whipped up and blew Tara’s long dark hair about her face, obscuring her first view of the inside of the castle. With impatience and trepidation, she drew back a moment, pushed hard on the door, and entered the keep.

About the Book

The short story collection Just Like Jonah Wail Tales now has a workbook edition, one aimed at parents, Sunday school teachers, youth group leaders and all those who want to share their faith with 10- to 14-year-olds.

Just Like Jonah Wail Tales Workbook contains eight short stories with modern Jonahs who make bad choices and land in a whale of trouble, just like Jonah. Each of the main characters disobeys God and repents, demonstrating the biblical path to salvation. Their mistakes include giving in to fear, not doing their homework, being selfish, and holding a drinking party when the parents are away,

Through discussion questions and Scripture citations, parents and teachers can teach the lesson of Jonah to this generation with modern examples of misconduct these children experience. They can help avoid having to live wail tales of their own…
