I recently completed this book. It has risen to the top of my favorite list. When telling my Mom and sister about this book I started crying. I had no idea it had had that much of an impact on me. I know this for sure: God cares about the prodigals. And He cares about those who are waiting for them to come home.
A Classic! A tale of redemption and sacrifice. And really, who can’t love a guy who can write sentences like Mr. Dickens?
History! War! Secret Spy Stuff! AND forgiveness! Andy Andrews, the author, has said this is his favorite book he has written. I concur!
I first read this book years ago. I loved it so much I shared it with my husband. The principles and wisdom imparted by a gentleman called Jones are priceless.
This book made quite the impact on both my husband and me. We even adapted lessons from the book and it’s sequel for our young adult bible study.

Yes. I know. I wrote this one. So, I’m prejudiced. But the cover art by Dawn Estella still amazes me. The process of writing this book forever changed me. I am not the person I was when I began writing this book. My hope is that others are healed as they read these words. We were created to FLY!
Marriage takes work. I read this book at a time in my life when the theme resonated with me.
NOTE: This is my husband’s story. These are his words as spoken to me and as written in his journal. There are pieces he asked me not to share. What I am writing today, I am sharing at my husband’s request. This past Sunday our pastor began a series entitled “Grow”. Last Sunday several of …
Any of you out there feel as though you are struggling to keep your head above water? Do you feel at any moment the waves of despair, chaos, or suffering will crash over you for the last time, breaking you, tossing you into the depths of the ocean floor? You are not alone. The world is hurting. There are unspeakable horrors happening all around us-across oceans, in our own land, even in our own homes. People are fighting for their very lives. People are dying. What are we to do in times such as these? “Be strong and courageous!”
God wants to reveal the gold in your life. You are a treasure and hold treasure within you.
