Running Barefoot on Holy Ground: Childlike Intimacy with God

By Jeanne Gowen Dennis

Running Barefoot on Holy GroundAVAILABLE FROM THE AUTHOR

Are you missing something in your faith walk? A life filled with Jesus is a life of joyous abandon when we give ourselves permission to experience it like a child, but this type of relationship can happen only as we grow in our understanding of the awesome holiness of God. Running Barefoot on Holy Ground can help you rediscover the joy of loving God with the abandon and innocence of a child.

This book is a balm to the spirit of anyone hungering to know God intimately as their heavenly Daddy. Through literature, Scripture, story, and practical exercises, Jeanne helps us assume that childlikeness that pleases God and draws us near to his heart.

Marta’s Promise

A Novel by Jeanne Dennis and Sheila Seifert


As Marta Ebel leaves her German homeland illegally in 1766 to seek a new life in Russia, a five-year-old boy is unexpectedly left in her care. To save them both, she must put her trust in a handsome French rogue who passes himself off as a fellow emigrant. On her perilous journey, Marta discovers the real meaning of faith and the true cost of love.

Brimming with the spirit of new hope amid dramatic uncertainties and physical hardships, the story of German relocation in the 1700s comes to life in these remarkable pages. It’s not a story of the past as much as a story of human endeavor, 

challenges, dangers, and faith.
