Life, Faith, and Saltwater Taffy combines a playful beach theme and scriptural foundation to bring fresh perspective to vital topics: living in community with others, balancing self-care with service, navigating the inevitable storms of life, and growing in relationship with God. Readers are welcomed as unique and beloved creations and invited to consider what they would carry for a day by the shore, in order to embrace what is life-giving and set down unnecessary burdens. The book culminates with a look at lighthouses and an exploration of how each individual can provide a clear lens for shining God's light brightly into the world. With its conversational tone and relatable anecdotes, you just may close this book feeling as though you have been sitting by the water, having a heart-to-heart with an encouraging friend. Each chapter includes a thought-provoking quote and a prayer. A Diving Deeper section follows, with suggestions for reflection, gratitude, further reading, and action. Designed for personal reading or group study, Life, Faith, and Saltwater Taffy also makes a wonderful gift.
