Sheila Nyquest, a school principal/special education director, has worked with children and their families in the public school system and in church settings for over twenty years. While growing up, she experienced many hardships and, as an educator, has seen other children living in situations that create a sense of fear, lack of trust (especially in adults), and feelings of hopelessness. She wrote this book to help create an awareness of their pain and give them a hope in something different. A hope not found in a better education, money, a stable family, or any of the things she ever thought would change things for her, but only through a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Sheila lives in Thorne Bay on the Prince of Wales Island in southeast Alaska, with her husband, two teenage children, and their Lab. They enjoy participating in all kinds of sports and spend much of their time out in the wilderness subsistence hunting, fishing, and berry picking.
