The Messy Art of Helping One Another Become More Like Jesus
Life’s a mess. And nobody escapes it. Your life’s a mess. Your friends and family’s lives are a mess too.
Thankfully God has a plan to deal with the mess. It involves you, and it involves me. Even with all of our messes, God wants to use every one of us in the lives of those around us to be part of his glorious rescue plan in their lives.
But, if you don’t know exactly what to do or even where to start, Loving Messy People is for you. This book is a practical handbook designed to equip you for each of the messy situations in your life and the lives of those around you. Filled with real-life stories, biblical truth, and practical wisdom, Loving Messy People will show you how God wants to use you in his plan to transform the mess in people’s lives into something redemptive and beautiful.
