It’s Autumn in the Blue Mountains, which is always my favourite season. I love the bright colours and the freshness in the air and the reminder that change is on its way. In recent news, we toured the north-west of NSW, with ‘The Zookeeper’, in March, which was wonderful, especially speaking with 2,000 children.
And now ‘The Plum Tree in the Desert’ is at the printers. Exciting! I’ll be speaking at quite a few Interserve related events this year, including Singapore in late April, so have a look at my calendar for details. As well as that, I’ve now recorded 45 radio snippets, so please go to ‘Everyday Stories with Naomi Reed’, or send me a message on the contact page. I’d love to hear from you!
With love from Naomi
My Seventh Monsoon is the first in Naomi Reed’s award-winning trilogy. It was written in Nepal during the monsoon of 2005, while Naomi was struggling with home-school, civil war and 120 days of rain. As she stared outside at the rain, she began to type and consider the way that God works his purposes in our lives through seasons. The book reads like ‘a very long cup of tea’ and was awarded second place in the Australian Christian Book of the Year Award, 2008
No Ordinary View is the sequel to My Seventh Monsoon. It describes the years in Dhulikhel when the family were training Nepali physiotherapists and struggling through issues related to poverty and civil war. The constant reminder was to “fix your eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what it seen is temporary but what is unseen is eternal.” (1 Cor 4:18). The book was awarded first place in the Australian Christian Book of the Year Award, 2009.
