“You can learn from my mistakes, and it won’t cost you a thing!” is one of Marina Bromley’s favorite quotes. Over the years she’s had time to reflect on her life lessons and the grace-filled ways God has turned them into blessings. This book is based on what she’s learned through those mistakes, much as she’s shared around her Kitchen Table online and in person over the past 35 years. If you’ve longed to have an older friend, someone who won’t gloss over the mistakes she’s made and will own up to the realities of life, then this book is for you! Take this 30-day journey of scripture focus and practical life application and reflection in Morning Meditations at Marina’s Kitchen Table.
Loving Out Loud is a collection of personal stories intended to provide practical examples of how to love our neighbor, one another, and even our enemies. In some, Michael shares about how other people truly set an example for him. In others, he shares about times when he blew it. In all of them, you will find grace and an opportunity to adapt the message to your own daily life. You will laugh with him and you may cry with him, but you will also walk with him as he learns how to love. This book is great for bible classes, small groups, or devotional times. Each chapter contains discussion questions and a personal challenge. As a bonus at the end, you will find the Lovementalism Challenge designed to help you set new patterns in your love for others.
