Join Cindy Tuttle as she uses her simple, yet effective style to explore finding peace and comfort in a stressful world. Finding the Light of Jesus uses prayer, meditation and reflections to encourage the reader.
Her unique approach asks the reader to think about what they have read and provides opportunity to journal and to talk to Jesus about what is going on in their life right now. Once this prayer takes place, Ms. Tuttle asks the reader to explore and then record their thoughts and feelings.
One unique way that Ms. Tuttle keeps the book flowing is to use poetry to make her points.
The first chapter, which deals with The Business of Life and Stress, says, "There is hope! You don't have to live under pressure while confused and operating in survival mode. Yes, there will always be the cross we have to bear, but I will suggest some ways to carry your cross--even through the storms--and in a manner that doesn't weigh you down.
"Come with me on this journey. Jesus is waiting for you with love in His eyes. He wants to show you compassion and peace. He wants to calm the troubles in your life. After all, He was there when you were created. He has been with you every minute. You are His beloved son or daughter! He is like the father in the prodigal son parable. He waits to embrace you and dance when you return home!"
Ms. Tuttle puts a lot of thought into each chapter. She challenges each of us to step back and take a solemn look not only at who we are and how we live but of our inner selves. Handling stress, facing today's culture, examining our deepest feelings and finding a way to hang onto the light and peace of Jesus are a few of things covered in this enjoyable read.
I recommend Finding the Light of Jesus to anyone needing to let go of the hurt and stress that everyday life can cause. Use it to inspire others and to enrich your own life.
