Bad choices. We all make them.
LOVED is a collection of true stories of modern-day prodigals (names have been changed) who have fallen away from God, but then rediscovered the power of His love and forgiveness.
Each section begins with a story about a Biblical woman who was a prodigal, told in the Biblical way, with some embellishments to make it more interesting. Then following that are stories of women who had similar experiences.
In the beginning, Ms. St. James shares how her life coach taught her about receiving God’s love. He poured water over her hands and told her to try to catch it. She ended up with only wet hands. But then he had her cup her hands and soon they were filled to overflowing with water. Ms. St. James shares that’s how it is with God’s love. We just have to stand there, palms open, and receive His love.
No matter what your situation, whether you had a slow steady spiral away from God, whether you never knew Him and are reaching out, or whether you’ve been the Christian good girl who can’t forgive herself for a mistake, then LOVED is a book for you to consider. Each story reveals God’s amazing love and the miracle of a life saved by Jesus Christ. $16.99. 229 pages.
