She reminds the reader that God wants to give everyone a life without regrets, rebellion, or the captivity of sin.

Read an Excerpt

Why we're on this journey: See, I want to go on this journey through Jonah with you because I understand his journey far too well. Like Jonah, I reached the end of myself, and reached out to God. I've experienced the grip of a God who has never let go. His grace so engulfed me that I knew He was not only permeating my past, but He would also permeate my future. The life I lead now is much different from the life I dealt with then. What changed? Did I get smarter, and find the path to true wisdom within my own strength? Absolutely not. Did I win the lottery? Well, spiritually you might say so. Did the world smile upon me and accept me into the inner circle of popularity? Nope. Why couldn't I just make some more self-fueled-wisdom-filled choices and pull myself together? Because the only factor that has made a lasting change in my life is the grace of God. The only true godly transformation of a life is found in our obedience to Jesus Christ. Our access to God is found through His grace and mercy, extended through the blood of Jesus as our once-for-all sacrifice and payment for our sins. Our God is truly a God of unending grace; He is the God of second chances. He gave me one and He'll give you one too.
