Jill Eileen Smith is the bestselling, award-winning author of the Wives of King David series, the Daughters of the Promised Land, the Wives of the Patriarchs, and The Loves of King Solomon series. 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.

Thankful for 2020?

We’ve all heard the term 20/20 hindsight, and don’t you wish 2020 was in our rearview mirror about now? I know I do. I’ve lived long enough to finally understand what my mother-in-law meant when she used to say, “It’s always something.” Any time some new difficult thing came along in life, that was her go-to phrase.

I think she had a bit of wisdom in those words. In a sens

So true.
Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri J.M. Nouwen
“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.”

Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri J.M. Nouwen
“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.”

“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, Return of the Prodigal Son
