The Marvelous Mud House: A Story of Finding Fullness and Joy

Ben and his American family live in a hungry ranch house where they are always wanting more. But then they travel far across the world to Kenya and visit the marvelous mud house where George and Mama George live. There, among the mango trees, they discover a marvelous lesson about what it’s like to be full of joy instead.

April Graney is the author of the 2017 Christian Book Award finalist The Marvelous Mud House, a whimsical true story about finding contentment and joy based on her family’s trip to Kenya. She lives at New Life Ranch in Oklahoma with her husband and five children and surprisingly loves teaching math at a local Christian school for at-risk students. She has a masters degree in biblical studies from Dallas Theological Seminary and speaks passionately about God’s heart for the world to children and parents at schools, churches, summer camps and parent/child retreats. She enjoys early morning coffee, laughing quite loudly, growing tomatoes and herbs, taking naps, and attempting to be an artist. Find her online at onehappyhouse.org.

Her next book The Marvelous Maker releases in September.
