Together they raised a family of four, along with five foster children on their dairy ranch in Chino Hills. During that time, Carol started a prison visiting program at a nearby women’s prison. With her husband, she founded Crossroads, a halfway house for female parolees. Carol is a long-time Bible teacher, having taught in her church, and in the community. She enjoys art and travel as well as writing. The Prophet and the Pharaoh was inspired by a trip to Egypt and discussions with an Egyptologist in 2009. This is her first novel. Carol’s short story, “Senior Moments” will soon be published in Hot Chocolate For Seniors.
Currently, Dr. Bekendam is at work on a book about her experiences with prisoners and their children.
