In 2005, Rachel Devenish Ford, 25-year-old pregnant mother of two, moved with her husband to the woods of Northern California and began her blog, Journey Mama. In writing about her life—all the funny things, the sad things, and the beautiful— she found a way to see it again for the first time, and a way to cultivate joy in a life that had been overwhelming to her. In the process, she encouraged and inspired people around the world.

The first in a series, Trees Tall as Mountains is a collection of the best posts of the first three years of Journey Mama. In them, Rachel Devenish Ford describes life in an intentional community, her love for her Superstar Husband, her dysfunctional relationship with large grocery stores, and the antics of her young children. As Rachel works to overcome sometimes crushing anxiety, love the people around her, and grow in her faith in God, she writes about it all with tenderness and humor. Funny and profound, Trees Tall as Mountains is a life-changing book.

Picking up where Trees Tall as Mountains left off, Oceans Bright With Stars is a true journal about one family’s gutsy, wild decision to move across the world and make their life in a village in India, navigating water problems and power cuts, beating back the jungle and embracing a new culture. In the first months, Rachel is blindsided with what it truly means to leave everything behind, experiencing panic and a strong sense of dislocation, but as she seeks to trust God and searches for beauty in her new home, she finds it in unexpected places. From the ocean to the mountains, Rachel records her family’s encounters with insects and snakes, holy cows and yaks as they grow and flourish in an unlikely environment.

The Journey Mama Writings series is about overcoming difficult circumstances to reap the joy of belonging. This collection of posts from Rachel’s blog is a hilarious and evocative account of learning to love a new country, and with it, a new way of life.
