Happy Wednesday, reader friends!
Today, we’re shining the spotlight on Stand by Me which is a book written by Neta Jackson.
About the Book:
Sometimes the person you most need is the one least like you.
Kathryn Davies is a bright young woman from a prominent Phoenix family. But after making a leap of faith at a Christian music fest, dropping out of med school, and moving to inner city Chicago, her family all but disowns her.
When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to become a part of the multicultural church family. But her tendency to immediately say whatever shes thinking steps on the toes of nearly everyone she meetsespecially Avis Douglass.
Avis has a strong faith, is the principal of one of Chicagos highest performing elementary schools, and is a founding member of SouledOut. But the countrys economic downturn has thrown both her and her husbands jobs in question. And Avis hasn’t heard from her youngest daughter in months, an estrangement that gnaws at her every day. Where is God in this?
Kats flamboyant zeal for living a radical Christian life is a stark contrast to Aviss more reserved faith. But in Gods timing, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither of them expected.
