From the Inside Flap
It isn't always easy to serve our God in a culture that is alternately ambivalent and hostile toward him, especially when we ourselves are so flawed. We're not the first ones to face this challenge. In fact, Elijah--one of the most important prophets in history--faced the same struggle. Although he was outnumbered, misunderstood, insecure, and often fearful, he found power in obedience and prayer--and you can, too. Discover how you can obey and follow God even with your weaknesses in Elijah: Obedience in a Threatening World.

I am married once and only to a good man who loves me well, Breck Castleman. Our older son, Robert Dayton, is an artist and works as the museum manager for 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville, Arkansas. Our younger son, Scott Breckinridge, is a pastor, like his father and grandfather, in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Breck and I also have a beloved beagle named Gilbert and five wonderful grandchildren!
