"This is such a beautiful and encouraging book! Mrs. Brown shows us the world through her eyes and her heart. I am half way through the book right now & can hardly put it down! She talks about being the quiet, fearful, child with learning difficulties and social misunderstandings in a way that warms the heart of a mom who is trying to nurture children with similar circumstances. She weaves together a story that feels like "Pocketful of Pine-cones" meets "Passion and Purity" in a very modern and very relevant manner. I cannot recommend this book highly enough." Mrs. Brothers
"What an amazing story! Like stepping into Sarah's home and being part of her life and family. She paints the scene and feelings into her writing to draw you right in through the "window". Her love for God and His faithfulness in her life inspires others to hold on to His promises. Powerful strength in the Lord guides this family. An excellent example of how God wants to work in everyones life. I had a hard time putting it down. I will be rereading aloud to my own children. I LOVED IT!" Mrs. Schleede
Sarah Janisse Brown is a world traveler, pancake flipper, potty trainer, happy wife and a homeschooling mother of ten. In her free time, she fills her journals with poetry and prayers, paints murals and mindlessly says "yes" to every child that asks to keep a stray kitten.
Sarah's stories have appeared in Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Above Rubies Magazine, Countryside Magazine, Mother Earth News, as well as several small newspapers.
Sarah and her husband Joshua met at Calvary Chapel in Cincinnati, Ohio when they were young teens and were married under a bright blue Indiana sky seven years later.
The first baby was born ten months after their wedding day. The little guy was so cute they decided to have nine more. After several years of competing in the rat race, and adding a new baby to the family every year or two, the couple decided to pack up the kids and follow their childhood dreams.
So in 2012 the family opted out of the American Dream, sold everything (or gave it away, because most of it was junk that came from yard sales and thrift shops) and moved to Europe. Josh sold his computer service business and Sarah resigned from her seat on the Fortville Town Council, where she had been serving as vice president. To survive they started selling workbooks for Dyslexic children online.
Joshua and Sarah are the developers of creative curriculum and therapy for children with Dyslexia, Asperger's Syndrome and ADHD. They have a heart to help children who struggle with schooling, like Sarah once did, as well as their own dyslexic daughters. Their online business - www.DyslexiaGames.com, allows them freedom to live and work anywhere on earth... with an internet connection.
Recently the family appeared on the reality show House Hunters International, when they moved from Fortville, Indiana to Veneto, Italy.
Back in Indiana the Browns were known for their urban homestead (complete with goats and ducks) that they created in their own backyard on Main Street.
