CHICAGO, Ill. – Kharis Publishing today announces the release of “Not in the FIRE: Discovering God’s will in a Gentle Silence” (ISBN: 978-1637461419) by Barbara Austin, a story of perseverance and trust in the Lord.

Known as “the feisty one,” young Barbara will do whatever it takes to protect herself and her younger siblings from the predators in their lives. Her experiences are extraordinary, from countless nights sleeping under a claw foot tub to evade her abuser to witnessing the burning of an interracial couple. Though she was the self-appointed protector of her mother from various abusers, those lessons were not always applied as she pursued her own adult relationships. Yet even when she experienced defeat and despair, she learned she was never defeated. Not In The Fire is for anyone tempted to doubt their usefulness and ability to carry on. Journey with Barbara as she finds that God is not in the fiery events in her life, but in a gentle, silent voice.

According to Jeffrey Baker, Financial Advisor, Family man and a man of God, “Because of Barbara’s faith in the Lord, she has that inner strength that helped her live through one of the hardest lives growing up. Women seek the comfort from good men and should be able to depend on strong, loving men that will help care for them and work with them as a team. Barbara came across men in her lifetime that let her down. With the whisper of God’s word, Barbara was granted a life of blessings to give and share with others her hope and her strength!

Barbara Austin grew up in the green mountains of Vermont and currently lives in rural Massachusetts with her daughters Tonna, Mary, Taylor and Rachel. She has held numerous positions in her local church, including organizing a monthly women’s breakfast, and some of her career pursuits have included children’s librarian, personal care attendant, orphanage custodian, nanny, and carhop. Her home has been the site of day care for the elderly, children’s daycare, and a bed and breakfast. She remains steadfast as an active listener to the “still small voice” that prompts her responses to the need around her.
