Following the Shepherd in Real Life Series
People often ask Richard T. Vander Vaart, "What is it like to be a minister?" In response he tells stories of his ministry experiences. Eventually, these stories were written down and collected into Can't Help Myself, a series of daily devotions created to help readers reflect upon their lives during the month of December.
The devotions in this book are complemented with beautiful photography to encourage deeper meditation, thoughtful discovery, and exploration of the scriptures. Some stories are humorous, some are serious, and some are whimsical, but all are told in a rich writing style and based in the love and compassion of God's Word.
