Scripture and personal anecdotes work together to help readers form a deeper relationship with God

Sandy Karstens spent years writing for her church’s newsletter, where she received praise and encouragement to publish her writing. In her first book, “Christ in Your Life,” Karstens has taken her newsletter articles, combined with her personal journals, and evolved them into a book readers can use to enrich their own walk with God.

Karstens wants to encourage readers in their faith, by offering advice from the scripture, and from her own personal experiences.

“In today’s hectic world, it’s easy to lose sight of God,” Karstens said. “As we go through life, the struggles, the choices we make, and the life we live can either take us closer to God, or further away.”

In her personal stories, Karstens shares how God has always been with her, is now with her and will always be with her, even if it isn’t in the way she expects or desires.

“I’m just a hard-working grandma, trying to make a living with great faith,” Karstens said. “Publishing my book seemed like a huge step, but God was showing me that it was time to share it, and that he would take care of me. Even if only one person is helped by my book, it will have been worth it.”

Karstens hopes that readers will use her book alongside the Bible in their studies, as they move forward in their journeys of faith.
