Ballina author inspires purpose-driven life, hope in new Christian book

BALLINA, Australia — This week marks the nationwide release of “Dunes,” a motivating, hope-filled new book by author Deborah Ballard.

In “Dunes,” Ballard makes her readers realize that to fulfill life’s purposes and dreams, they need the input of others who come alongside them and join with the same vision for those purposes and dreams to be realized. Some may come and some may go, but believers need to stay encouraged that the very right people at the very right time will be sent to join them. With God and his purposes for his creation, believers can go on to succeed in perhaps even greater ways than they could ever imagine.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or

Ballard is a mother, writer and former welfare worker, who currently participates in the community life of both her local church and local community where she lives. Through her writings, she hopes to inspire young adults to consider their choices carefully by resisting temptation and navigating around obstacles and distractions in life so that their life’s dreams are fulfilled, and that they thrive with longevity and their gift of life is well lived.
