What if we let God do the extraordinary with our ordinary by connecting with him in our everyday moments?
What’s the book about?
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 met her.
What inspired Dolly to write 7 Days of Soul Care?
Dolly has lived and wrestled with the soul care practices and questions she writes about in 7 Days of Soul Care: A Guide to Letting God Do the Extraordinary with Your Ordinary.
In 1999, she prayed and asked God to show her how he created and designed her. She wearied of trying to fit her circle in the square expectation of certain key people.
Through her blog and talking to other women, she knows others also struggle to simply be who God created them to be.
God answered her prayer and led her on a surprising journey of self-discovery and a deeper experience of his love by taking her through some valley lows and mountain highs. And she wants others to know they can trust God with their journey of self-discovery and living into who God created them to be.
Because of her experiences, she believes in the power of God’s love and presence to transform and redeem brokenness into unexpected beauty. And she wants readers to also experience that same transformation.
In 7 Days of Soul Care, Dolly encapsulated highlights of what she learned over the past 17 years, and what she continues to learn and practice in deeper ways.
“Our world can convince us we need to do “big” things for God. But we serve a Savior who came to a tiny manger in a small town to live a simple life of uncommon obedience. . . . Dolly’s words help us stop striving and instead lean into the grace, love and intimacy we truly need and only God can give.” —Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author of You’re Already Amazing
