ENUMCLAW, Wash., April 6, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Novelist Heather Randall reveals Christian characters with flaws, moments of despair, and weakness -- but that's what makes her characters strong, she says.

Randall's book, "When Chicks Hatch" (WinePress, 2011), shares the lives of five women, the value of brokenness, and their journey towards healing.

Nicky is a college student who uncovers her professor's infidelity. Sidney finds herself in a web of deceit with a married man. Jennifer is driven by the unquenchable yearning for her own child. Alexis wants out of a life that is crushing her inside. And Kristen is a nurse faced with an overwhelming assignment.

"I am really proud of how the Christians are portrayed. They are loving and imperfect, not pious. They display God in their decisions and the quiet actions of their life. I think everyone can relate to the powerless feeling that the characters all share. We want to be able to fix our own messes and make things right on our own, but God is the one who works things together for our good, not us."

Heather Randall grew up in Livonia, Michigan, graduated in 1997 from Churchill High School, and attended Schoolcraft Community College and William Tyndale College.

While still in Michigan, the Randalls were commissioned into ministry from United Assembly of God (now Real Life Church) and served at Ypsilanti Assembly of God and Tri-City Christian Center (now Connection Church). Heather has also been active in Women's ministry and she has a special heart for moms and the difficulties they face every day.

"The women in my story are pretty fragile, but through the broken pieces, their lives take shape. They hatch out of their shells to be who God designed them to be."

Heather and her husband Stan have been married for nine years and have four children. A stay-at-home mom, Heather enjoys homeschooling her children and writing product reviews for "The Old Schoolhouse Magazine." Heather and her family live in Coweta, Oklahoma.
