Jill Eileen Smith is the bestselling, award-winning author of the Wives of King David series, the Wives of the Patriarchs, Daughters of the Promised Land, Heart of a King, Star of Persia, Miriam's Song, and The Prince and the Prodigal. Her research has taken her from the Bible to Israel, and she particularly enjoys learning how women lived in Old Testament times.

When she isn’t writing, she loves to spend time with her family and friends, read stories that take her away, ride her bike to the park, snag date nights with her hubby, try out new restaurants, or play with her lovable, “helpful” cat Tiger. Jill lives with her family in southeast Michigan.

Miriam's Song by Jill Eileen Smith
"Jill Eileen Smith is a master storyteller of biblical fiction. Her newest book, Miriam's Song, doesn't disappoint at all. It made me think of Miriam's story in a new way which I loved. It was a wonderful book and I am glad I was able to devour it!"
Jill Smith and 5 other people liked Lori's review of Miriam's Song:
Miriam's Song by Jill Eileen Smith
"quote is a favorite of mine because it is Moses telling Joshua " You understand much already, Joshua. It is hard to wait on the Lord, for He sees far beyond what we can see. 

Excellent advice my friends! God's timing is not ours. His ways can be hard " Read more of this review »

Topics Mentioning This Author

“the more you read God’s Word, the more you’ll know it, and the more you know it, the more you’ll love it—and the more it will define and empower your prayers.”
Jodie Berndt, Praying the Scriptures for Your Adult Children: Trusting God with the Ones You Love

“The farther I run away from the place where God dwells, the less I am able to hear the voice that calls me the Beloved, and the less I hear that voice, the more entangled I become in the manipulations and power games of the world.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming

“I can only be healed from above, from where God reaches down. What is impossible for me is possible for God. “With God, everything is possible.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming

“I am beginning to see that much of praying is grieving. This grief is so deep not just because the human sin is so great, but also—and more so—because the divine love is so boundless. To become like the Father whose only authority is compassion, I have to shed countless tears and so prepare my heart to receive anyone, whatever their journey has been, and forgive them from that heart.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming
