Trust in the Lord - Reflections of Jesus Christ
By Deen Kemsley Reviewed by
The author, Deen Kemsley, states he had a singular intent in writing this book, and it was "to prompt readers to look within themselves to find the light and peace of Jesus Christ."
Throughout the book, Deen shares a spiritual journey in his stories that make the reader reflect upon the message of the story, and many times allows the reader to see reflections of the Lord. It is truly an inspirational book filled with personal accounts of actual life experiences. Deen is able to capture your attention and offers words of wisdom that do reflect Jesus Christ as he shares his stories.
