Like Abraham leaving the land of Ur, Andy Garrett hears a still, small voice and feels compelled to leave his bartending job to embark on an unexpected journey. The strange part is that he doesn't yet know the God who has spoken, and he can't quite explain to friends and family why he is so radically changing his course. How do you explain that even though you don't know what to believe about God, you've upset your whole life to do what you think He's told you to do?
Author Debby L. Johnston's Cherish: A Still, Small Call is Andy Garrett's story. Follow him through a mixed-up childhood to his first job at a Chicago bar, the halls of a small religious college, and finally to Cherish, a little town in the middle of nowhere. At the college, feel his joy when he meets the Lord again - this time with a real introduction. And meet Abbey, the lovely woman who seems to understand the call God has placed on him.
Take the journey to Cherish, and you'll come to love the Lord, the place, and the people as much as Andy and Abbey do. Smile, cry, and be inspired as the young Garretts embrace and are embraced by the little First Baptist Church. Follow, too, their loving attempts to redeem the past. Every day is filled with learning and love. Who knows? You may find that Cherish the book and Cherish the town change you, too.
