Francine and her husband, Rick, live in Northern California and enjoy the time spent with their three grown children and every opportunity to spoil their grandchildren.
Chris Fabry reads with quiet eloquence about the prophet Amos, using rich tones and textures to describe Israel during its prosperous, sinful years. His depictions of Amos as a youth, disillusioned by priests who compromise their sacrifices with blemished lambs for their own profit, are rich with meaning. When he depicts Amos's love for his flock, the portrayal is genuine and warm as is Fabry's characterization of Amos's growing intimacy with the Lord, who calls out to him in frightening dreams and visions. Rivers's illumination of the life of Amos, the prophet who was unpopular because of his message of repentance to Israel, is exceptionally well characterized by Fabry.
