Zeiset’s New Blog

A year ago at this time we were preparing for our trip to Tanzania. You can read about it here.

Three months prior, I had recovered from sciatica pain that had left me hindered to the point that I couldn’t walk. How was I going to make it, flying over seas and living in a simple African village for two weeks. What if I had a relapse?

God was good–great!–in fact. I had no issues the entire trip, and my heart still glows with the fulfillment of doing something that was hard for me, that required faith.

Anyway, on to the point:

Introducing my books: Fingerprints; Bits and Pieces of Motherhood

While this is not technically my book, I was privileged to contribute to it.

A few years ago, I participated in a survey for Anabaptist women writers. (Darletta Martin and Sheila Petre later compiled this information into a writers directory called Vignettes; Anabaptist Women Writers.) Included with the survey was an invitation from Lucille Martin to contribute to a book for moms called Fingerprints; Bits and Pieces of Motherhood.  

Motherhood is a full, full-time job, brimming with both earthly and eternal responsibilities. You will identify with these moms as they tell about the joys and challenges and, of course, about the countless fingerprints on almost everything. You will be inspired to seek another set of fingerprints in your life and home–the fingerprints of God!

May His fingerprints be evident in our lives as mothers, helping us, enabling us…so that we may one day bring His precious children back to Him.

I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1,2



Welcome to the author website of  Tina Fehr! I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ, wife of Jake my Darling, homeschooling mom of five, and author of The Fehr Family Series

I was born in an Old Colony Mennonite village in Chihuahua, Mexico. When I was six years old, we moved to Southwestern, Ontario, Canada, where I still live today.

In grade 3, I rubbed my hands together in delight as my teacher handed out foolscap for our next creative writing assignment. (Foolscap is an ancient word for inexpensive legal-sized, lined paper.) Since then I dreamed of being an author and a teacher.

In 1989 I surrendered my life to God and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. In 1999 I married Jake the love of my life. God has blessed us with five children. They make fun, energetic, creative and sometimes squabbling students in our homeschool.

I’m a trying-not-to-be-uptight, so-glad-that-the-Lord-loves-me! kind of person. I enjoy a good cup of coffee, discussion about something that’s important to you, walking in the woods, and a reasonably tidy house. Romans 12:12 urges us to be “constantly rejoicing in hope because of our confidence in Christ.” Therefore I am… writing with hope!

I intend to blog occasionally, writing about life, family, homemaking and homeschooling, writing, Mennonite history, and whatever else the Lord leads. Join me by subscribing to get my posts emailed to your inbox.

I would love to hear from you! Please comment or email me at tinafehr.author@gmail.com
