Author aims to make Bible more relatable

After six years of writing, local author Sara Kellar recently published her second book: a collection of short stories and poems entitled “Full of Words.”

The anthology is composed of Biblical re-tellings and allegories, each with a devotional thought following it, she said.

Her goal with the book was to make the Bible more relatable, Kellar explained.
