The first thing I want to say about this book is how pretty it is. It is hardback and smooth. The interior pages are cool to the touch with more smooth! The cover has a single yellow rose – which for anyone who knows me knows how significant that is! That is my review on the “hardware.” Now the soft goods.
Searching always brings us to a place of comfort and belonging. Trina starts the journey with a devastating change to her family dynamic – she confesses, “Many days I sought comfort in the computer over God’s Word…”
Who of us have not ‘been there, done that?’
Then, in chapter 13 she says, “It would be wonderful to have a little cottage with an English garden by the sea. But the place I dream of now is a person. Jesus is my place. He is my home.”
How beautiful is that?
The book is a series of essays
Her book is a series of essays. “Look for a Lovely Thing.” “Clearing the Cache.” “On Friendship.” “On Acceptance.” “Heaven Knows.” “A Full Life in the Emptiest of Places.”
The author writes on the soul of the home and dying in our striving and yet we are striving to be less than who we really are.
There are color photos and almost 400 pages of goodness!
Who should read this book?
I highly recommend this book for the one struggling with brokenness who needs a really big dose of encouragement and hope!
