Finding Family is an invitation from the author to join in the search for her biological family. The tender story of the need to belong reveals more than the need to feel accepted, and Wendy Batchelder discovers the path to claim her true identity—rooted in Christ. Encouraging affirmations and reflections lead the reader to embrace the unconditional acceptance of God and give peace to secure their identity in Christ.
Wendy Batchelder has been adopted twice—first by earthly parents and then into the family of God. Because of her journey to finding her God family and biological family, she is passionate about helping new believers grow in their faith. She and her husband, David, live in Iowa with their three children (and three fur babies), and they attend Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Wendy has served with various ministries. Wendy enjoys learning new things, spending time with friends and family, and hasn’t met a closet she can’t organize. Wendy is also a member of Compel Training, a Christian writers’ organization. Finding Family is her first book.
