Behind The Lights
In this inspiring debut memoir, Helen Smallbone, mother of seven creative children–including Christian music artists for KING & COUNTRY and Rebecca St. James–chronicles the family’s journey of faith across the ocean to go where God was leading. Written from a mother’s perspective, Helen shares stories of peaks, valleys, and a family trusting God for provision.
Helen Smallbone’s heartfelt story illustrates what it means to really let God lead, which almost always means living outside the box of how the world says to live. How did an ordinary Australian family produce two Grammy Award-winning artists–Rebecca St. James and for KING & COUNTRY? What happened to bring the Smallbones through closed doors and to new beginnings in the United States? In Behind the Lights, Helen shares not only these stories of her family but of the life lessons they all learned along the way.
In 1991 Helen and her husband, David, packed up their family and sixteen suitcases to move from Australia to the United States. Completely isolated from the support of family and friends, they relied on God to provide them with hope and direction. Helen watched her children join forces as Rebecca St. James’ career grew, soon followed by blossoming careers for the others–as artists, entrepreneurs, filmmakers–and the rise of Joel and Luke’s for KING & COUNTRY on Christian music charts. Helen shares untold stories and insights into how her family worked and stuck together, constantly relying on their faith to guide the way. Helen’s journey includes:
*meeting her future husband with a cockatoo on her shoulder
*the family’s move to the states in blind faith
*the kindness of neighbors and the local church that gave them the encouragement they so desperately needed
*years of touring alongside Rebecca and the formation of for KING & COUNTRY
*the ways God led and enabled her to homeschool and think about education differently
*an inside look at the stories and dynamics of the entire Smallbone family
No matter where you are in life, Helen shows through her own experiences that what God has done in her life, He will do in yours, too.
