God tells long but redemptive stories. I (Veronica) painted this picture when I was pregnant with my first daughter Aubrey. At the time I was sad and discouraged and put myself into the piece as the bird, flying out of the City. I wanted to run away from everything that was hard about urban ministry.

Five years later the book is finished. The cover resembles this painting, and as I look with fresh eyes at the bird it now seems to be flying toward the City. I’m still in urban ministry, but in a totally new way.

I hope you will preorder the book (on Amazon) and hear the whole story… and Breanna’s story too. Most importantly, I pray you’ll be filled with hope that a better world is possible. Peace ❤️ #healthyneighborhoods

Because God is always in the business of healing,
