Wild in the Hollow

This is a story of the God who makes himself known in broken places. In prose that is at once lyrical and utterly honest, a brave new voice takes readers on a windswept journey down the path of brokenness to healing, satisfaction, and true intimacy with God. Amber calls readers to dispense with the pretty bows we use to dress up our stories and instead trust God to take our untidy, unfinished lives and make them free, authentic, and whole. Anyone who struggles with doubt or holds secrets, anyone who feels marginalized or like she is missing something, will find in Amber a sister and an inviting voice back home, into the heart of God.

About the Author

Amber Haines, author of Wild in the Hollow, has 4 sons, theRunaMuck, and guitar-playing husband, Seth Haines. She’s an Alabama girl who’s found home in Arkansas. She loves the funky, the lyrical narrative, and the dirty South. She finds community among the broken.

Amber is contributor at (In)courage and The High Calling, and former contributor to A Deeper Story. Once upon a time she was a student of Poetry in an MFA program, but the desire for children won over words and she had 3 boys in 3 years after that.

After a canceled adoption and going in deep with her community, the Haines family added their 4th BOY to their story. His name is Titus, a boy of strong heart whose poor health taught them more than any good health could.

Amber Haines writes about mothering many boys and keeping faith from the perspective of a Christian woman who’s had an abortion and an affair. She loves to tell a story, to speak and write about the church and the power of weakness and forgiveness.

She hopes to encourage you in your creative endeavor and spiritual giftings, in your pursuit of the Kingdom of God, and in your weakness. She believes the people of Christ’s church are to be agents of healing and reconciliation. It was brokenness that taught her so, and she’s still learning.
