To Walk or Stay by Lara Williams

I cannot speak highly enough of this book. There is so much truth breathed into this book and it is grounded in Scripture. Lara Williams speaks from her heart as she tells us about what she learned about God and herself in the wake of an affair, thus the name of the book. But what she shares is true for everyone of us no matter what is happening in our lives. It breaks down who we are before God and exposes the idols of our hearts. The book focuses on who we are and that we are responsible to God for ourselves and not others. We are to seek God no matter what we are facing in life. Though the title of the book speaks to marriage, it also speaks of our faith. In the tough times will we walk away from God or maintain the faith?

Each chapter is short and easy to read. At the end of the chapters there are discussion questions that are good to think through as well as Scriptures to delve into that go along with the main point. I found this helpful as God has been showing me my idols and weeding out my sin. I think everyone should read this book no matter where they are.

I give this book 5 stars!
