"Sittin' by Faith," is an autobiographical account of a traumatic year in Stephanie's life. One moment life was normal, and she was standing on the porch talking to her sister. The next second, she was lying in her Mom's living room floor, covered in broken sheetrock, bricks, and shattered glass. After a supernatural experience with heaven, and she was told, "It's not time," she pursued her journey of emotional, physical, and spiritual restoration. She had to choose: to trade fear for faith, despair for joy, pain for healing, and loneliness for peace. Be prepared for the emotions that this book will evoke in you as you read her #WheelChairAdventures, and be inspired by the determination she had to praise God in the midst of the storm. If you are a willing vessel, God can fully restore you no matter what you are walking through. Step out in faith, and trust Him as you embrace your own #AdventureswithGod.

The Civil War battlefield is the last place Quakeress Faith Cathwell thought she’d find herself. But with a gift for nursing, Faith seizes this opportunity to join the fight for abolition—and to search for Shiloh, a freeborn childhood friend who was kidnapped and sold south by unscrupulous slave catchers. Knowing it’s much too dangerous for her to search enemy territory alone, Faith enlists the help of Colonel Devlin Knight, who is indebted to her for saving his cousin’s life. A career soldier, Dev is committed to the preservation of the Union but conflicted about freeing his own slave and confidant, who plans to enlist as soon as Dev gives him manumission papers. Blazing a trail east with the rest of Grant’s army, Dev and Faith fight their personal battles—and a growing attraction to each other. When beliefs clash and passions flare, they quickly find that the only thing more dangerous than the war surrounding them is the battle within their hearts.
