 “Girls, get back!” Ezra shouted. 

His face was pale, but his eyes kindled with indignation as he stood in front of the girls protectively. Ezra dropped the pitchers in the sand and his hand dashed to a dagger, concealed under his tunic. Jarah’s eyes grew wide. He could be killed for carrying a dagger!

Jarah was a slave in Egypt. It was a dangerous place to be.Her work was exhausting and her family was torn between the gods of the Egyptians and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And her brother… would his Ada be given in marriage to an Egyptian in the palace? Would they ever be free?

Adventure, excitement, love, and faith come together when Jarah and her family find themselves at the culmination of four hundred years of history.

Have you ever wondered what life was like in ancient Egypt? As an Israelite? And a slave? Want your children to understand the Bible is history?

A required read aloud for the new Tapestry of Grace!

Enjoy!


Praise for A Cry From Egypt

“I seriously have no words that can properly explain everything awesome about this book.”

- Dawn Winters from Guiding Light Homeschool

“After reading the first chapter with the children, I snuck off to read more. I stayed up late to finish it. That’s how drawn into Jarah’s world I was.”

- Linda B at Homeschooling 6

“I have worked as a writing teacher and editor for for my entire adult life. I have read more stories from young authors than I can count, but Hope’s work is the first to make me think of JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, and Frank Perretti when I read it. ”

- Patsy Brekke on Mrs B’s Bonnet at

“One of the things I enjoyed most about this book as a parent was that Hope did an excellent job of focusing on her story, while staying true to the Biblical account of the plagues in Egypt. She allowed the Bible to speak for itself with the details she presented, neither adding nor subtracting from it.”

- Michele P from Family, Faith, and Fridays

Are We Like The Israelites?

I was reading a devotional on “Trust” this week, and found this post about anxiety and how it affects our trust in God. And then it linked that all back to the Israelites wandering around in the desert, which is what I’m writing about right now… So I wanted to share it with you all! I hope it’s an encouragement to you as it was to me!

“The underlying source of our anxiety – most, if not all, of it – is unbelief in God and a corresponding unwillingness to follow Him. That’s what the author of Hebrews was getting at in his letter. The Old Testament Israelites, about whom he was writing, had God’s presence to guide them by day and by night; they had all the food they could possibly need miraculously provided in the manna that God rained down from heaven, and they had the guarantee of God’s protection. Despite all this – God’s presence, provision, protection, and promises – the Israelites were constantly fearful about what might go wrong. As a result they were unable to find the heart rest that was available to them every moment. The author of Hebrews didn’t think it necessary to point out how hard it was for the Israelites to cope with life in the wilderness; instead he laid the source of their inability to enjoy peace squarely on their unbelieving hearts.

“If we would only believe that what is right here for us – life with the God who protects and provides – is sufficient, we would quickly discover that we have no need to seek our fulfillment anywhere else.” – Lydia Brownback
