The Life I Now Live: A true story of adventure and faith in Cambodia

‘Lord’ I said, ‘have I not made enough sacrifices already? I gave up my friends and family to come to Cambodia… Do you really mean for me to surrender everything?’

Joelle Kenny thought God would never want anything to do with her. She didn’t come from the ‘right sort’ of family or background. But God had other plans for her life.

Short and accessible, The Life I Now Live is an inspiring story of an ordinary woman following God’s call to serve him in Cambodia.

What they say about The Life I Now Live

“To meet Joelle or to hear her speak is to be inspired.  This book has the same impact.  I cannot wait to give it to friends and family, Christian and non-Christian alike.  It is magnificent.”

– William Taylor, Rector, St Helen’s Bishopsgate

“In a world with many celebrities but few heroines or heroes, this book gives a refreshing insight into the heart of someone willing to follow Christ wherever he leads to help others follow him too. Joelle’s story is very honest and hugely encouraging. I’m praying this book would stir many people’s hearts to be involved with what God is doing in gathering a people from every tongue and tribe and language and nation.”

– Robin Weekes, Minister, Emmanuel Church Wimbledon
