IT IS HERE! The book of "The Story of Gomer" is in our hands and can be in yours as well.
The Story of Gomer has been performed across the nation, reaching thousands of people with the message of God's faithfulness and love. Adapted from the book of Hosea in the Bible, we journey with Gomer, a harlot lost in her sin until Hosea, a prophet of God, offers to marry her and redeem her life from darkness. Will she be faithful? Can she love him? Or will the pull of her old life be more than she can bear?
Join Geri Campbell as she takes us on a journey, not only through the ugliness of sin, but through the joy of freedom and newness that only faith in God and in His Word can bring. Weaving Gomer's story with her own, we are sure of this, there is always a way back home.

“Leaders are measured by how much they sacrifice, not by how much they gain. When the will of God cuts across the will of a person, somebody has to die. Leaders are meant to be losers-losers of ourselves and losers of our rights. The best way to find out whether you really have a servant’s heart is to see what your reaction is when somebody treats you like one.”

I hate my apron. Well, that is to say, I used to hate my apron. It is kind of an unusual circumstance that even brought me to a place where I was required to wear an apron. As many of you know that have followed the Campbell family’s journey, we left Nashville a couple years ago so we could have “our best life now”. From all the books we read, we were not living our dream because we were afraid to “get out of our comfort zone”, “afraid to step out of the boat”, etc, so we decided to get out of the boat and our comfort zone by quitting our jobs, leaving our home in Nashville, living by faith, and going full time with our ministry. Now, I must say, if you look at the website of where Rich and I work now, (www.creationmuseum.org) you’ll see a nice photo of me, Geri Campbell starring in a children’s musical I co-wrote. If you walk around the halls of the Museum, you’ll hear me singing in the promo on the hall monitors. So, one would think, wow, they did make it! They are living their best life now. Geri is living her dream. Life must be a bed of roses. Some might even compare their lives with mine and think that they are not useful in the kingdom of God because they are not doing some great thing right now. It is for this reason I feel I need to write the truth, or rather, the behind the scenes reality of Geri’s life.
Now, back to the apron…
