Lessons Learned in the Deep Places
Wisdom, experience, and scripture all agree—tough times give us personal endurance and depth of character
But given the option, we would probably join the authors in saying, “But Lord, I was happy shallow!”
This book is the heartening response to that voice inside. It’s much more than a simple collection of encouraging stories. It’s a powerful reminder of the lessons you’ve survived, grown through, and used to sink your spiritual roots deeper into the faith that sustains and nourishes you. It’s your life preserver when circumstances are about to overwhelm you.
“Dailiness is often the chisel that carves within us greater resiliency—so the next time you’re frustrated with the cotton pickin’ flow of your life reach for But Lord, I Was Happy Shallow. You’ll feel understood and encouraged.”
Speaker, Women of Faith
