Kayla Woodhouse is not your typical twelve year-old. Due to a rare medical disorder, she feels no pain, doesn't sweat - and needs protective cooling gear just to go outside. With her restrictive lifestyle and a mountain of hospital bills, what's a family to do?
How the Woodhouse family has faced seemingly impossible challenges is a story that has captured the hearts of America. Millions of people have experienced glimpses of their lives on various television shows.
Now Kayla's mom, Kimberley, takes readers behind the cameras to reveal their family's journey as never before told. From medical sleuthing to freak house fires, Welcome Home proves that truth really is stranger than fiction. This candid life-story reveals both success and failure, and demonstrates how, even during tough circumstances, you can shift your life from heartbreak to extreme joy.
Includes a 16 page photo insert that takes you inside the Woodhouse family's life - and their famous house!

What was your motivation behind this project? James 1:2-4 Everywhere we go, people ask how we have kept smiling and laughing through the trials. Well, God's joy is always there - even in the darkest of times. And times right now are very hard for a lot of people. But to consider it all joy, completely changes your perspective.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope people will understand and see that God is in control. He is good, He is always there, and He's waiting for us to cast our burdens on Him. By sharing our story, I hope that people will be encouraged to face each day with joy.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This project is different than any other articles or fiction I have written - because it's our family's story. It's personal, it's challenging, and it was hard to re-live some of those experiences- like my daughter's diagnosis or brain surgery. But it also refreshed me. Showed me once again, how great and wonderful our God is - and my joy is even greater because of it.
