Healing Promises...

FBI Agent Clint Rollins is one of my favorite characters to write, but the challenges he faces in book two were the hardest to put into words. This story grew out of a painful time of wrestling with God and doubting His goodness when two dear friends and a vibrant young adult in my church’s student ministry faced life threatening illnesses. These amazing people all play cameo roles in Healing Promises. But the book is dedicated to Ken Whaley and his family, who showed me in action that even when circumstances don’t go the way we prayed, God is on His throne and He is very, very good. Always.

Writing about a married couple whose deep love for each other is tested right along with their faith stretched me in ways I’m still decoding. The intimacy and history between marriage partners was both fun and painful to put into words. Clint and Sara’s love sizzles at a deeper level than new romance, but inherent in that depth is the possibility of even more pain with loss.

In Ransomed Dreams I wrote about one of my greatest fears, that of losing my children. With Healing Promises, the fear I grappled with was not only losing my spouse, but also the reality of living in a fallen world with bodies that aren’t always healed this side of heaven. My hope for readers of Healing Promises is that as they watch Clint and Sara’s journey, they’ll be challenged to ask their own deep questions. In doing so, I pray they’ll find that understanding isn’t the key to survival, but believing the truth is where the peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7) begins.
