Memorable Monday - July 30, 2018



It's Memorable Monday! This idea was created by Becca from The Becca Files to highlight books that we've read in the past and are memorable to us. 

Today I'm highlighting Soul Detox by Craig Groeschel. This book is packed with great advice about how to live a Christian life in today's world. It's memorable to me because it has some of the best advice about fear (something I really struggle with) that I've ever received. Chapter eight contains that advice: "Ask God to show you whatever you can do within your power to minimize the risk of that fear becoming realized. Then whatever God reveals to you, do that. Beyond that, choose with every bit of faith you have to trust that God will be faithful, like his Word says he will be."


From the Back of the Book

With a fresh look at the word of God, vulnerable honesty, and his trademark humor, bestselling author Craig Groeschel unpacks ways to strengthen our spiritual health and our positive influence on others.

Soul Detox reveals how to overcome toxins that assault us daily, including toxic influences, toxic emotions, and toxic behaviors. More than an insightful look at the negative aspects of our day-to-day culture, this grace-filled guide will challenge you out of complacency into a life of clean, pure, and focused living based on the freeing standard of God's holiness. Jesus calls his followers to a radically different lifestyle than the carcinogenic culture we see around us.

Despite the atmosphere around you, you can richly enjoy life and live it abundantly when you submit to a soul detox.
