About Mark Restaino (Chicago, Illinois Author)
Mark Restaino is a full time youth minister and lives in the Chicagoland area with his wife and two daughters.
He got the idea for his first story while on a retreat with his youth group students. His other stories also seem to come to him in the quiet moments as he reflects on his life and relationship with Christ.
He is personally drawn to the symbolism and foreshadowing that God weaves throughout the Bible and believes they serve as beautiful defenses in apologetics.
In reflection of his creator, he strives to write stories that capture readers' hearts and minds while symbolically sharing the faith and gospel message.
He prays that his stories kindle the fire of the Holy Spirit within you, your family, and your church community.
