Nostalgia for the simple days is a common theme in most people’s lives. The days before cell phones, computers, iPads and the like; the days when family could sit around the dinner table and talk without any distraction. It is those days that Carroll Marr touches on in his new book, Life is Best Lived: Simple Lessons From Life ($14.99, paperback, 978-1-61904-662-7; $22.99, hardcover, 978-1-61904-663-4; $7.49, eBook, 978-1-61904-664-1). The author has put together his collection of true and funny stories that depict life in a simpler time. He makes sure that each story has a simple lesson that demonstrates how every experience in life can be used by God to help everyone live life to the fullest.
“I hope my readers will be entertained, encouraged and carried back to their own childhood experiences. The reader will also be challenged to rediscover the joy of a life lived to the fullest,” expresses the author. “I was privileged to grow up in a simpler time, in a rural setting, that allowed a young boy to experience life in a way that many never do. I have served as a pastor for thirty-five years in both small and large churches. I have taught in a seminary and traveled extensively, sharing the message of God’s hope around the world. I often use my childhood experience to illustrate biblical truth and have discovered that they provide clarity, hope and encouragement to others.”
Dr. Carroll Marr currently resides in Texas with his wife, Tanya. He has served as the pastor of the Southcliff Baptist Church since 1998. Dr. Marr received his Bachelor’s degree from Northwestern State University, his Masters of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and his Doctor of Ministry degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
