The Worlds Next Door
Twelve-year-old Janie Rutland grudgingly befriends Reggie Rankin—the weird new kid at school—and finally has someone to investigate her curious sightings in the abandoned house next door.
When they find there’s an impossible world in danger of total destruction, they face a choice.
Do they have what it takes to save it? An eccentric fellowship gathers as they embark on a perilous quest in a race against time and their own fears.
Traveling in what can only be described as a pirate hover ship, they’re threatened by monsters and storms, shipwrecks and death.
Can they find the answers they need to save Sian—and maybe all worlds?
11-year-old Vincent van Gogh discovers a curious new world through a tunnel on the moor. A mysterious white rabbit introduces Vincent to Alice, and their quest begins—defeat the dreaded Jabberwock before it consumes all of Wonderland.
A slithy tove, an ill-tempered caterpillar, and the Cheshire cat meet them along the path as their adventures take them through fields dancing with flowers, tangled forests, and looking-glass pools.
But all is not what it seems in Wonderland, and Vincent may not have— and may not want— what it takes to succeed.
Destroying the Jabberwock may cost more than he’s willing to give.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28
The world is full of things that undermine our faith. Too often, we push and scramble through life, allowing our feelings to control our decisions, attempting to accomplish things in our own strength, and trusting in worldly wisdom rather than God. This leaves us frazzled, overwhelmed, and grumbling through every difficulty like the Israelites did in the desert.
But we don’t have to live that way! The peace God promises is real and available to every believer.
This book tackles many of the obstacles we let come between us and God—things like fear, failure, insufficiency, and expectations. The biblical examples and truths explored will bolster your faith, calm your spirit, renew your strength, and shift your focus from the earthly to the eternal, freeing you to embrace God’s rest in all circumstances.
