"God's Child in the City is an inspiring account of one woman's journey from a rural childhood to the sprawling metropolis that is Los Angeles. Along the way, she tells not only her story, interspersed with scripture reflections, but also the story of the Life Skills Lab, a ministry she began at the Culver Palms Church of Christ.
Written with grace, humility and insight, this engaging book shows us the city that God loves and ways we can see the city through the eyes of God. Highly recommended, especially for those who believe that God dwells in the countryside and suburbs of our land."
—Jude Tiersma Watson, Associate Professor of Urban Mission, School of Intercultural Studies, Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California
"This personal story of a 'long obedience in the same direction' of effective and humane urban ministry—part memoir, part best practices, part Biblical teaching and part story telling—furnishes deep insights into the challenges and rewards of working with fellow citizens who are poor and marginalized."
—J. McDonald Williams, Chairman Emeritus, Trammell Crow Company, Dallas, Texas
