Home Again Blog Tour - Day One

Wanda, what inspired you to pull together the Home Again anthology and what do you hope readers will learn?"
The Home Again: Stories of Restored Relationships anthology deals with an issue that is very dear to me: family relationships. It has always been my belief that family relationships help shape and mold us as individuals. If those relationships are healthy, most likely we’ll grow into positive productive members of society. If our family dynamics are abusive or unhealthy, more than likely, we’ll learn to subconsciously hurt other people.


In my personal life, I’ve experienced extreme broken family relationships from the beginning. I’m the product of an extra-marital affair between a 17 year-old girl and a 39 year old man. Due to these circumstances, I never had the privilege of meeting my father and grew up fielding my mother’s resentment of having being forced into motherhood at a young age.

What I hope readers learn, like I have, is that Home is an institution where we are loved and cared for...a place of genuine affection and security. Ironically, it can also be the source of our greatest heartaches and biggest disappointments. But with God’s love and guidance we can always go home again and mend broken relationships.

LEAVE A NOTE: Are you struggling about a broken relationship? Let us know how we can lift you up in prayer.

I have a huge family and although it's a blessing everyone seems to have so much resentment, hatred and jealously over the next person. I'm the 'fixer' of the family. My mom has 10 other sisters and brothers from the same mother and my dad has 21 sisters and brothers from the same mom and dad. I've been praying and fasting for years that they will unite and encourage one another.

Thanks for sharing your story and I will be sure to purchase the book this week.

Blessings to you!

Thanks Rhonda for supporting this project.

Brooks-I'm saying a prayer for you right now. With that many different personalities and ideas, you're going to need all the help you can get. Remember, God created them and NOTHING is too hard for Him.

Brooks,
I think all of us have become grieved by loved ones. It's definitely one of the enemy's tactics to cause chaos and pain.

Be encouraged and continue to pray and fast for God to open the hearts of your family.

Rhonda,
Thank you for your support of the Home Again authors today.

Brooks, the prayers of the righteous availeth much. Even though you don't see the manifestation of your prayers, God is faithful. Continue to believe for what you're praying about.

Linda!
