Living in a Zoo?


Feeling God’s call to write, teach, and establish ZooKeepers Ministries in 2002, (now ZMI Family Ministries International) Brenda has witnessed God’s transforming power restore thousands of families through the application of His principles. She, along with husband Tom and their team, travel on mission each year teaching in Brazil, Nicaragua, Honduras and The Dominican Republic. The ministry is also growing in Kenya, and other countries where they have not yet traveled. Since 2008, thousands of books have been donated in mission countries where women cannot afford books. National leaders are trained to carry out the ministry throughout the year and to multiply groups throughout their countries.

Author Brenda Lancaster invites you to take a break from the “zoo” of life and discover nine basic principles, that when applied, can revolutionize your life and family. Brenda says, “Women can’t be all things to all people. I know. I tried and it never worked. But, when I discovered and applied these nine basic principles, the light of hope at the end of the tunnel no long felt like an approaching freight train! Our marriage was revitalized, order tamed chaos, and the whole atmosphere of our home with three energetic little boys, dramatically improved.”

Whether you’re a professional in the corporate world or the Chief Operating Officer of Stay at Home Mom, Inc., you will find that the woman sets the tone for the home. Find God’s empowerment as you practice His principles in the daily trenches of life. Daily action assignments guarantee a little bit of victory every day. This workbook format is also available in Portuguese and Spanish.

“As Brenda Lancaster’s pastor and friend it gives me great joy to recommend Brenda as a gifted writer, creative teacher, and captivating speaker who conveys truth, forged in the fires of every day life. This study is life-changing…I highly recommend it!”
