Far from Home
Follow a boy and his family as they say goodbye to their home and travel to a new land—and a new life—far away from all they know and love. Far from Home brings hope to an impossibly difficult situation and gives a face to the nameless millions who have been uprooted from their homes.

A Family Prayer
In a world that seems to change every day, this simple prayer invites you and your family to remember the One who "is the same yesterday, today, and forever" (Hebrews 13:8). Gather your little ones close and end the day with gratitude and rest in God for provision and protection.
Below is an audio version of this book, which Sarah wrote during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. A Family Prayer is illustrated by her kids, translated to Spanish by her mother-in-law, narrated in Spanish by her brother-in-law, and produced and scored by her husband. We hope it can bring comfort and peace to your family from ours.
