“I have a strong belief in God and am convinced he has helped me and guided me throughout my life,” explains author Floyd E. Friedli. “He has spared my life a few times and opened doors for me.” It was this conviction that helped him pen his new book, “The Hammer and the Frog, God Watches Out For Me” (published by WestBow Press).
“I want you to think about the good things in your life, think about what religion means to you, and to be a better happier person,” Friedli says to readers.
“The Hammer and the Frog” takes a straightforward look at religion revealing the goodness in life. It is designed to help people appreciate the good in their lives and to help them become better people, enjoying each day to the fullest.
Friedli describes a number of his personal experiences, relating them to his religious beliefs. He also simplifies religion to the most important elements and looks for the similarities between the different world religions.
“God works in mysterious ways. I don’t believe in destiny or predetermination. I believe we make our own choices, and we make decisions every day that affect our lives today and sometimes far into the future. I do believe that God affects our lives. He might nudge your thinking in a certain direction. He might present you with an opportunity you can take or reject. He might occasionally open doors you can either walk through or ignore.”
