In her memoir,

Keeping Kyrie, Emily Christensen, PhD, recounted the chaos she experienced in a span of just a few years—from cancer and the death of her parents, to marriage and the adoption of six children with special needs. Now she draws on her decades of religious scholarship to look at the creation story in Genesis as a lens for understanding the principles of chaos and creation in our lives. A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she ties together concepts from the Bible, the Book of Mormon, modern prophets, Hebrew linguistics, and her own perspective. The book’s creative design and layout make this an easy read that is full of deep doctrines to ponder.
