“Out My Window”: a potent reminder of mankind’s connection with God. “Out My Window” is the creation of published author Barbara Durnil, who was born in a small town in north Central Washington shortly after World War II. She raised two children with her beloved husband prior to his passing.

Durnil shares, “This is the story of an empty nester widow who decides to isolate not alone but with God at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. She has always thought a monastic life would be wonderful. She could shelter away from life, social responsibilities, and interruptions simply to study God’s Word and to talk with Him. She is going on sabbatical.

“She has two Bible studies already started when the shutdown began and several studies she wants to pursue. She also journals and enjoys writing what she hears God telling her. She is in for a big surprise when God begins His lessons for her.

“There are wonderful things presented for her to learn, new revelations and thought-provoking information that had never occurred to her. There are also emotions, frustrations, and Satan’s presence to throw her off. These are all met by God, showing her the way out. Even when she stumbles and weakens to despair or anger about the scene out her window, God takes the guilt from her and loves her. He is a merciful God.

“She learns of His holiness, grace, and mercy but also sees His working hand of judgment out the window as she watches the direction of the human race. She learns that mercy and judgment are in equal quantities as they exist together at the same time. True repentance is what changes judgment to mercy.

“Her lessons come daily, and she becomes a true disciple of Christ, taking in every word He speaks and asking questions in return. All that was needed was time alone, no distractions, and her full attention on God.

“The world grows dark out her window. And at first, it frightens her, but God shows her truths and reminds her of His plan. He prepares her to be a part of His plan and to eventually return to the world walking in that plan. The time is not yet, but it is coming, and she waits for it.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Barbara Durnil’s new book brings a unique perspective to the possibilities that presented during an uncertain time in world history.
