JustRead Tours Blog Tour: Far From Home by Mabel Ninan

Far From Home JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Far From Home by Mabel Ninan, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Title: Far From Home 
Author: Mabel Ninan 
Publisher: Iron Stream 
Release Date: July 12, 2022 
Genre: Christian / Non-Fiction / Spiritual Growth

Explore the intersection between culture, identity, and faith in this new release from an earthly immigrant who gained a spiritual perspective.

What is my purpose? Why do I exist? A sense of self and belonging are two questions many of us struggle to answer. 

 And what if you are a foreigner in another land? 

 How does one adjust to a new culture? Discover their place in a new society?

 For Mabel Ninan, born and raised in India and an immigrant in America shortly after marriage, the search for those answers sent her on a journey that led to an unexpected and exciting discovery. 

 God revealed she was not only an earthly immigrant but also a spiritual one, created with a unique calling to impact His kingdom. Mabel’s renewed perspective imbued her with joy and hope, urging her to share the message with others. 

 Drawing from her personal experiences and by examining the lives of biblical heroes, Mabel sheds light on what it means to live as a citizen of Heaven on earth. Far from Home will inspire you to: 

 • Embrace your identity as a foreigner on earth. 

 • Make your home with God. 

 • Find community and common purpose with fellow sojourners.

Christian Non-Fiction books are so encouraging and I really enjoy reading this genre. Far From Home by Mabel Ninan is the latest book in this genre that I have read. 

Mabel Ninan was born and raised in India and immigrated to America shortly after she got married. Upon arriving in America, Mabel went through many struggles trying to adjust and finding her place in America. Culture Shock was one of the main struggles she experienced. Being an Immigrant in any country is a new experience. Mabel really felt God calling her to share his word and she found that when she did, it bought hope and joy to her. Mabel's joy and hope helped her find her place in America and gave her strength. 

I really enjoy reading about Mabel's journey. I would have never imagined that Immigrants would have a hard time adjusting to new surroundings. I am born and raised in America in the Chicagoland area, which has a LARGE Immigrant Population. I have enjoyed learning from different cultures from the Immigrants that I have befriended. Mabel's Journey and her realization that she is also a Spiritual Immigrant was eye-opening. I really appreciate how Mabel used Biblical Heroes to relate to us being Citizens of Heaven on Earth. I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs encouragement in their Spiritual Journey. GREAT BOOK!
