The Edge of the Divine
Where Possibility Meets God’s Faithfulness
Back of the Book Synopsis:
Overweight and stressed out, award-winning vocalist, speaker, and author Sandi Patty was teetering o the edge of a meltdown when her trusted doctor and friend issued an ominous warning: “You are cheating your family if you die too soon—and trust me, Sandi, if you don’t do something, you’re going to.” She had to make some changes and she had to make them now.
In The Edge of the Divine, the acclaimed soprano shares the poignant and sometimes humorous story of her journey from the brink of physical disaster toward the abundant life of good health and keen spiritual fulfillment God wants all of us to have.
In these pages, Sandi invites you to come along on her journey, which so far has included an eighty-pound weight loss. With insight and creativity, she shares the lessons she has learned and helps you recognize and act on the important “edges” in your own life, those points at which something is likely to begin.
Sandi welcomes you to join her in making choices that bring actions in line with priorities while pursuing God’s goal for his beloved children—the abundantly rewarding life awaiting us beyond The Edge of the Divine.
Sandi Patty has defined “edges” in our lives as those points at which something is likely to happen. It may not happen automatically; it may be a choice. And it will almost always mean giving up something.
Not only does Sandi discuss her journey through lap band surgery and weight loss, she also gives insight into her family dynamics, including a move to Oklahoma and how that affected her family, especially the adult children.
This book is an excellent read for anyone considering lap band surgery. But it’s also a book for everyone because all of us have face edges at various times in our lives. And we must decide whether or not to play it safe and stay away from the edge or step off the edge trusting God for our landing.
