Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!
– Psalm 103:1-5
Oh, friends. I have a treat for you today.
My friend, Dolly Lee, of Soul Stops, has written a book that will do wonders for your soul.
Dolly has always inspired me. Her words just ooze gentleness and grace. You can tell when reading anything she’s written, that she has taken time and care to plug right into the Holy Spirit before putting pen to page. And this book is no exception.
What if we let God do the extraordinary with our ordinary by connecting with him in our everyday moments?
7 Days of Soul Care invites readers to surrender fear and to courageously embrace the journey of living more fully into his or her amazing true identity as God’s Beloved. Using creative stories, Scripture, thoughtful journal questions, and heartfelt prayers, Dolly Lee guides the reader through soul care practices, she has learned to implement over the past seventeen years. She writes out of her own battle with anxiety, depression, and PTSD, and how God’s grace and love transformed her—and still changes her.
I will tell you honestly, that after going through this 7 Day Journey with Dolly and Jesus, I am so much more mindful of who I really am to Him, and of who He longs to be to me. I am taking my time with the questions, which are thoughtful and in-depth. The prayers are ones I read over and over when I can feel my soul is thirsty.
Each chapter of this book brings you deeper and deeper into God’s love and grace, as you learn to trust Him and then trust Him more. Scripture, inspirational quotes, and anecdotes help to bring the concept of soul care to life.
You will treasure this book. If you’re looking for a book for group study, look no further! This would make a perfect gift, with the Holiday season coming up. And please don’t forget that Dolly’s goal is to donate $500 to the work of International Justice Mission, making gift-giving a double blessing!
Dolly Lee believes God’s love can transform a person from the inside-out if one surrenders to his love. She’s thankful God’s grace allows second acts and second chances. She attends Fuller Seminary and writes at her blog Soulstops.com where she invites readers to stop and connect with God. She lives with her family and one lovable dog in California where she loves to hike, read, share meals and laugh with family and friends. Her goal is to collect enough in royalties from the sale of her book, 7 Days of Soul Care, to donate $500 to the work of International Justice Mission.
