MARPLE TOWNSHIP, Pa. (PRWEB) December 20, 2018
Julia A. Brooks’ debut publication titled “Gotta Text!: Reminders to Live Out the Gospel Through Every Day Encounters” (published by WestBow Press) is an interactive devotional in which the reader has an opportunity to “text” a friend or group of friends with a selected verse of a scripture-inspired message that compliments the devotional of the day. The concept of the book is to connect people to one another as they discover the gospel message in their lives’ journey and to see the unfolding of the gospel as they encounter the positive effect it can have in their response to life experiences.
“Gotta Text!” is a 31-day devotional that displays the gospel message as the reader delves into the lives of ordinary people doing ordinary things. These 31 vignettes highlight the struggles and victories while demonstrating gospel application in these experiences.
Brooks believes that people appreciate receiving an unexpected boost of an encouraging message for the day. In this case, those of faith can appreciate seeing how the gospel is illustrated in their lives as well. “What better way to encourage one another in the flow of life than by sending gospel inspired thoughts through concise text messages?” says Brooks.
An excerpt from “Text 21 Stormy Weather” reads:
When the storms of life overwhelm you, remember that the ultimate Weatherman, who speaks peace to your circumstances, can also cause the winds and the waves of your adversity to cease.
