Wrestling with Wonder Cover!!

Hi Friends,

Just wanted to share the cover to my new book and a bit about it.  Here it is, to be released this coming September.  Whoo Hoo!

And here's the catalog copy:

You’ve never seen Mary, or her God, like this!  

Who is this God?  Who is he who calls us to surrender and then leads us on a journey of twists and turns, ups and downs, unlike anything we could have ever expected?  Who is this God who calls a young girl to birth a Savior and then watch him die on a Roman cross?  Who is he who fulfills every promise and yet shatters every expectation? 
Come, join Mary, Jesus’ mother, on a journey of discovery. Hear the angel’s call, walk the long road to Bethlehem, give birth in a barn, search for a lost son, kneel at the foot of a cross, and experience the wind of the Spirit.  Come, walk with Mary, and find your own journey in hers. 

Because life rarely turns out the way we planned...
Because we lose the wonder in the disappointments of life ... 
Because being highly favored does not mean being highly pampered ...

Because Mary shows us God -- Passionate, breath-taking, and unpredictable...
