Far From Home JustRead Blog Tour 

Welcome to the Blog Tour for Far From Home by Mabel Ninan, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!





Title: Far From Home 
Author: Mabel Ninan 
Publisher: Iron Stream 
Release Date: July 12, 2022 
Genre: Christian / Non-Fiction / Spiritual Growth

Explore the intersection between culture, identity, and faith in this new release from an earthly immigrant who gained a spiritual perspective.

What is my purpose? Why do I exist? A sense of self and belonging are two questions many of us struggle to answer. 

 And what if you are a foreigner in another land? 

 How does one adjust to a new culture? Discover their place in a new society?

 For Mabel Ninan, born and raised in India and an immigrant in America shortly after marriage, the search for those answers sent her on a journey that led to an unexpected and exciting discovery. 

 God revealed she was not only an earthly immigrant but also a spiritual one, created with a unique calling to impact His kingdom. Mabel’s renewed perspective imbued her with joy and hope, urging her to share the message with others. 

 Drawing from her personal experiences and by examining the lives of biblical heroes, Mabel sheds light on what it means to live as a citizen of Heaven on earth. Far from Home will inspire you to: 

 • Embrace your identity as a foreigner on earth. 

 • Make your home with God. 

 • Find community and common purpose with fellow sojourners.

Paul reminds us that “this world in its present form is passing away” (1 Corinthians 7:31), and that “outwardly we [too] are wasting away” (2 Corinthians 4:16). Our relationship with God and our future with Him, however, are certain and long-lasting. So then let us not get caught up in worldly affairs, and let us not give our physical bodies and earthly homes undue importance. We can ask God to “teach us to number our days” (Psalm 90:12) so we can live wisely between mortality and immortality with the blessed hope of heaven bubbling over from our hearts.

Our immigrant identity reminds us that we are simply passing through and that each step on this journey is taking us closer to our eternal home. Our God-given heavenly citizenship informs us of the connectedness between our testimony on earth and our glory in heaven. What a privilege it is to know that our actions on earth can be worthy of treasures in heaven! What a joy in knowing that mere humans like us can participate in God’s plans on earth and make our home with Him in the heavenly realms!




Born and raised in the minority Christian community in India, Mabel Ninan moved to the US in 2008 shortly after getting married. In nearly thirteen years of her marriage, her family has called ten different places across two continents and seven cities home. The challenges Mabel faced as an immigrant on the move led to a spiritual crisis that drew her nearer to God’s side where she learned valuable lessons about how to live as a citizen of heaven. Her mission is to inspire believers to embrace their pilgrim journey on earth and boldly pursue their heavenly calling. A contributor to Guideposts' All God's Creatures: Daily Devotions for Animal Lovers 2022, Mabel’s writings have appeared in The Upper Room,, Leading Hearts Magazine, and (in) She hosts a YouTube podcast called Immigrant Faith Stories where she shares testimonies of immigrants, refugees, missionaries, and cross-cultural ministry leaders. She has been serving in various roles in women's ministry for almost a decade. Mabel enjoys reading, traveling, and dancing, but nothing gives her more joy than having conversations about the Bible. Mabel is pursuing M.A. in Theological Studies from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. She lives with her husband, son, and Maltese pup in Northern California.
