Wanda B. Campbell, editor of Home Again: Stories of Restored Relationships
(Micah 6:8 Books, LLC )
Home Again: Stories of Restored Relationships is a compelling journey into the relationships that matter most: family, friends and self. Each story is founded on natural love, but will require the Father’s love to heal the brokenness.
In the anthology, relationship is not limited to male/female romance, and ‘home’ is not limited to a physical building. 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.
Travel with husbands and wives, brothers, sisters, friends and families as they maneuver through life’s hurts and betrayals while leaning on a power greater than themselves.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the idea and inspiration to pull together Home Again: Stories of Restored Relationships?
Wanda Campbell: The Home Again 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.
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.
