“My Year in a Yurt”: a vivid representation of God’s healing power. “My Year in a Yurt” is the creation of published author Jen McGeehan, a motivational speaker who shares her humorous yet inspiring stories of God’s miraculous healing and restoration. She was able to successfully transition from life in the fast lane of Southern California to the off-grid, back-to-nature farm life of the Hamakua Coast of Hawaii.

McGeehan writes, “The God of the universe is still in the business of healing and restoration. Travel to paradise as one financially devastated couple, their twenty-nine-year-old equine, and young goat take a flight-of-faith, leaving the economically challenged mountains of Southern California for the unknown, off-grid ‘tiny’ lifestyle of a vintage, rented yurt on the Big Island of Hawaii.

In “My Year in a Yurt”, Jen McGeehan tells the true story of how she and her husband, Pat, experienced a radical lifestyle change when they packed their bags, left their three-thousand-square-foot home with their realtor and, with over $600,000 in debt, unknowingly entered the Tiny House Movement. With foreclosure and bankruptcy hitching a free ride, Jen sent yet another prayer to heaven asking for God’s divine intervention.

"My Year in a Yurt" unearths life-changing treasure through forty-five stories that reveal the humorous, bittersweet, and miraculous experiences of the McGeehans as they stepped into a once-in-a-lifetime journey that would soon mirror a national lifestyle movement. Also included is an extensive International Yurt Resource Guide featuring yurt manufactures, yurt camping, workshops, organizations, books, blogs, TV programs, and general yurt resources.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Jen McGeehan’s new book is an engrossing novel that focuses on the true story of how the married couple survived their struggles in life.

With this inspiring account, Jen's goal is to inspire her readers to take their own steps of faith by trusting in the only One who knows their story from beginning to end.
