Full Product Description
"In Nepal, whenever the water ran out, or the electricity cuts were worse than normal, or the monsoon seemed interminably long, or the motorbike stopped, or the Maoists forced another strike, or my homeschool patience ran out, I would think about Australia."
"I would think about our real home with hot water and electricity and cheese and lettuce and chocolate and olives and friends ...where I would belong and be understood and known and everything would be alright again. Then, in the middle of 2006 we returned to Australia and it wasn't like that at all. It wasn't immediately home and I didn't immediately feel like I belonged or that I was understood or known. And I spent years wondering why not, and getting confused by the answers."
This is a book for anyone who has felt the pain of being in between homes or jobs or countries or roles or relationships. It's about our deep-seated human need to belong and enjoy purpose and community. After their six years in Nepal, Naomi Reed and her husband Darren and their three sons returned from Nepal to Australia and struggled with identity and disorientation.
In this, Naomi's fifth book, she shares her story honestly and openly, allowing the narrative to lead the reader into prayer and reflection. By the end of it, you will feel a deeper and more profound understanding of what it means to belong to God and hope for heaven.

Heading HomeRuthie Thomas, via The Good Book Stall
Heading Home is the third in Naomi Reed’s award winning trilogy. In this book and in a very ‘sisterly’ way - Naomi recounts her struggle on returning to settle in Australia after living in Nepal for several years. She tells how she battled through years of trying to find answers to why returning home didn’t feel like home and why she felt so misunderstood?
The story is a fascinating blend of the earthly with glimpses of the heavenly. A glimpse of the latter is the telling of the time Naomi was to speak at a venue and the train she was travelling on was delayed. Noting her frustration and despair other passengers asked her what was wrong. She explained and they expressed their sympathies. Then one woman asks her what she’d be talking about if she’d made the meeting. Naomi explains and in the explaining gives her talk to those listeners on the train.
Naomi has the insight to later realize that the women she gave the talk to were the right audience that God had appointed for her that day.
The inclusion of inspirational self penned prayers at the close of several of the chapters sets this book as one to return to for use in daily or weekly devotionals.
