Have you ever asked yourself, "How did I end up in this mess?!"
We're experts at messing up our lives. We need constant reminders that not all is lost. We need to see grace in action!
This is where the lessons of yesteryear come into play, those you not only listened to but lived. Russell L. Estes recalls his experiences in Southern Roots: Lessons from a Southern Upbringing, a collection of 11 intensely moving and powerful stories set amongst the vivid backdrop of Alabama.
Through his mix of humorous memoirs, soulful tales, and harrowing stories, Estes weaves raw emotion and conversational prose together with Bible scripture to create elaborate tapestries that tell the story of God's love and forgiveness.
Take a trip back in time and find yourself in memories of your own. Recall how it's the little events throughout your life actually defined everything that you are today. Find out how God placed these little nuggets in our life for us to to pull out and use many years later.
Southern Roots teaches us that God's lessons refine us through pain, suffering, and even humility. The stories speak of new faith, redemption, salvation, hope, and kindness. You'll laugh and you'll cry. More importantly, you'll learn that God loves you no matter what sort of mess you're in.
