Read with Audra Blog Tour: Into the Deep by Lauren Gaskill

About the Book: 

Develop enduring faith for the turbulent waters of life.

Following Jesus doesn’t guarantee sunny skies and smooth sailing. In fact, the waters of life are often tumultuous, crashing over us. Sometimes we can feel that we’re drowning in a sea of confusion, division, frustration, complacency, or disillusionment. We need more than a shallow faith to survive these deep waters.
Into the Deep is an invitation to dive headfirst into a life of courageous faith. With endearing warmth and authenticity, Lauren Gaskill shares how she and others have learned to swim with Jesus in the deep waters of life—facing challenges such as anxiety, depression, and chronic illness—only to discover a more authentic, enduring faith that cannot be shaken by circumstances. In addition to examining the character of God and the lives of women and men of the Bible who chose to dive deeper with God, she provides practical examples and tools that help us take our faith to the next level by learning to make decisions by faith alone, control our reactions to overwhelming situations, and live a life rooted in love.

Get ready to exchange fear and frustration for the boldness, courage, and holy confidence that lead to a life of deep faith and joy!

My Thoughts and Review: 

I was intrigued by the title of this book, as sometimes I really need to "go deep" into my faith to get uplifted. Life brings us Trials and Tribulations and we can choose to grab onto to our faith and trust Jesus to bring us out of our Trials and Tribulations.

Lauren Gaskill shares her personal struggles and and how she overcame and what she learned along the way. Lauren is very open about her struggles. The book is filled with wisdom on overcoming struggles in life and relying on God during these times. I really appreciate the "Questions for Reflections" at the end of each chapter.

GREAT book for all times of life, but especially for those who really need to "go deep" into their faith!

Book Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars
