This book makes you rethink how much is enough. What could we do with the access that we have when there are people around us in need? There is no formula for this as each person needs to be lead by God and decide within their own lifestyle. No judgement. Just a challenge for those with more to consider living with less by being in tune with the needs of those around us. I know I am one who has more.
My sweet friend Lara Williams opens her heart with the world and shares about the struggles her marriage faced and how God redeemed what the world, even the Christian world, would have deemed as hopeless or "not worth it". She shares the raw, the honest, the ugly. Whether you struggle in your marriage or not, this testimony is a beautiful working of God's grace among ashes. He is the God of restoration and He uses Lara's story to speak into my own life and marriage. I couldn't recommend this book enough. In an age and society when divorce is at an all time high, we need to take a deeper look and fight for our marriages.
This is a powerful book about taking a serious look into our lives and being honest about our own self-indulgence. We all have it and always will, to some degree, on this earth. But what can we do today to say "No" to something we want for something greater? Over time we can form habits of denying ourselves something we want. For what? What's the point? We begin to see a bigger picture when we're not drowning in selfish desires which can often play into our self-worth.
