How do we live with less fear and more faith
when the deep waters of life come crashing over us?

Following Jesus doesn’t guarantee sunny skies and smooth sailing. In fact, the waters of life are often tumultuous, crashing over us. Sometimes we can feel that we’re drowning in a sea of confusion, division, frustration, complacency, or disillusionment. We need more than a shallow faith to survive these deep waters.

Into the Deep is an invitation to dive headfirst into a life of courageous faith. With endearing warmth and authenticity, Lauren Gaskill shares how she and others have learned to swim with Jesus in the deep waters of life—facing challenges such as anxiety, depression, and chronic illness—only to discover a more authentic, enduring faith that cannot be shaken by circumstances. Lauren invites us to discover how to:

• Trade doubt and fear for courage and boldness.
• Dive deeper into faith and build endurance for the journey.
• Make decisions by faith.
• Overcome battles with specific strategies and practices.
• Live a life rooted in faith and love.

You can leave fear behind and step into faith.

My thoughts:

From the beginning I was drawn into Lauren’s testimony. I loved how she weaved in her own struggles and triumphs with scripture and stories from the Bible.

This is a practical guide of encouragement to live a life of faith.

I appreciated the reflection questions at the end of each chapter and the prayer that reinforced what I just read.

This book would be great for someone who is just starting out on their faith journey and and wants to take another step into deeper faith.
