A Must Read

You may not know this about me, but I love to read. I tend to switch back and forth between fiction and non-fiction, mainly because when I read a fiction novel, I get so involved it consumes me until I finish it. Anyways, I definitely know what my next read will be..."40 Days Without Food: Divine Goodness to a Starving Soul" by Russ Masterson. Not only is the title intriguing, a great friend of mine is the author! I am thankful to have met Russ and Kristy during high school. We had a lot of great times together at UGA, and David and I also have had the privilege of being in ministry with them at Church of the Apostles. Basically, Russ and Kristy are awesome people, so I have no doubt this is going to be an incredible book!! Below is an excerpt of the book as well as info for how to purchase it. Check it out!!!
“I had a college degree, and soon a seminary degree to accompany it, yet I didn’t know where to go or what to do.” Russ Masterson had read and heard about purpose, but didn’t have a clue what his own purpose was. And there was emptiness where there should have been value. As he puts it, “I kept hoping a step would arrive when it was time to lift my foot.”

Disillusioned with his life, as well as with God, he heard this advice: fast from food for 40 days. Faithless and frazzled, Russ accepted the challenge, hoping for direction, reflecting on the past, and wrestling with issues like purpose, faith, and love.

In this book, readers will find a fresh literary voice — an insightful thinker who meets people in their humanity while helping them to see they can be rescued from it. The journey of these forty days without food will help you explore what really matters in life.

It is available on the Kindle, Nook, and iPad (via the free Kindle app for iPad). More info is on Russ' website:
