In God's time there is a season for all things-a time for repentance, a time for
celebration, a time for new birth, a time for seeking, a time for resurrection, a time
for power living and a time for ordinary living. In this book we see a collection of
stories: An Inuit woman, Ida Edwards, and her journey into adulthood: A Christmas
story in an Alaskan Village: A story of a Christian/Jewish family dealing with tragedy:
A monk's story of repentance: An Easter tale of devastation and resurrection: A story of
joy and gladness on Pentecost Sunday: Lastly, a story of love and forgiveness in Watts,
California. These tales are of ordinary people dealing with life situations not unlike
those people in the epic tales of the Bible.

and settled in southern California. Stephanie has written children's stories and plays,
