To Walk or Stay….

Lara Williams’ words in her new book “To Walk or Stay” really hit home.  And not only did they hit home, but they launched me straight into a deeper place with God.

With the voice of a dear friend, Lara is transparent yet hopeful, even in the darkest of times.  Her story flows from experiencing the infidelity of her husband, yet centers on the theme of finding God to be trustworthy and big in the valleys of life.

This book is full of counter-cultural, timeless wisdom.  It is packed with truth that will transform lives, marriages and families.

“To Walk or Stay” is solid, not because Lara went to seminary and knows a lot of theology (and is an incredible individual), but because she makes her theology REAL in her REAL life.  It’s also not simply a marriage book, or a book to read only if you are facing hardship.  It reaches into ANY life situation with the truth of who God is, and what it means to trust Him.  

God changed me quote from To Walk or Stay

How is this book different from others?

What impacted me most is Lara’s contagious passion for walking intimately with God and holding nothing back from Him.  She is committed to living surrendered before God and as a result, she writes about experiencing Him in a very concrete, tangible way.  Throughout the whole book, she invites the reader to do the same.

No matter what we are facing in life, Lara reminds us that the most important part about our lives is that we are “pliable in the hands of God“.  A good, soverign, miracle-working God, who will see us through anything.

Faith grows quote from To Walk or Stay

Woven throughout her beautifully creative words are practical tools for living victoriously in Christ.

At the end of each chapter is a section to “dig deeper” and make the content more personal.  This book is perfect for individual or a group study.
