The Language of the Soul
Now available in hardcover, $26.99

Captivated by an untranslatable Portuguese word and its application to contemporary lives, a life-long lover of words and follower of Christ explores the ways in which God meets us in our deepest longings of the heart – our longing for home, friendship, forgiveness, spiritual transformation, and more – not by satisfying our every desire but by granting us what we genuinely need.
