Soul Friends by Dr. Leslie Parrott
This book said little about friends but much about the journey, about lessons learned from daily incidents. Occasionally arose the topic of the importance of friends, their support, comfort and influence. A better name for the book might have been “Soul Quest,” as the book’s theme seems to be about traveling well through life, mining all that experiences offer to hearts and souls. That said, it was a thought-provoking book about being mindful and intentional in present circumstances, having eyes to see and an open heart, willing hands, and dedicated mind to meet the needs of those around us, even and especially if the people and needs are unconventional. “Soul Friends” is an interesting, well written and personal book, revealing much about the author’s life. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to examine how they spend their time, energy and resources. I received this book for free in exchange for my unbiased review through the Thomas Nelson BookSneeze Program.
