Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a married grandmother of 6 and the author of 22 books on Christian living and the gospel. I've got a Master's degree in Biblical Counseling and love ministering the good news to Christians who think they already know it.
What was your motivation behind this project? I've gone through a very difficult season in my life with intense stripping of all that I once valued here so I decided I'd better try to discover what the world to come will be like.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Comfort and encouragement when life here isn't what they hope it will be.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? My imagination has been fired up with thoughts of the new earth and what our lives there will be like.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? C S Lewis, N T Wright and Randy Alcorn were particularly helpful to me in the writing of "Home."
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Imagine life. Life without tears, without shame, without injustice, without boredom. Imagine life without all those "why's?" and doubts and fears. Got that? Now imagine loving and loving and loving and never running out of time or energy, desire or concern. Imagine laughter and feasting and angels dancing. Imagine all wrongs righted, all shadows dispelled, all weakness made whole. Now don't imagine it on a cloud with a see-through body. Imagine it in your resurrected body on this resurrected earth. Christian, that's where you're headed. This isn't your Home...and that discomfort you feel when you want things to be better...different...is actually homesickness. Nothing here will cure it. But a day is coming when all those longings will be completely satisfied and then you'll smile.
