Thoughts:

SACRED LOVE: A Journey of Singleness, Belonging, and Finding True Love by Claudia Cantrell with Kim P. Davis brings us along in life. From heartbreak through pain and family issues unto death and beyond wading through career struggles and failures, we will see into our own journeys through anger, forgiveness, doubt, fear, mistakes, wishes for a do-over, wanting acceptance, and needing repentance. All the while, we sort through our emotions and realize our need of letting go.

Her life story highlights struggles in the same areas for all of us, in varying degrees at different points in time. What sometimes will seem so very right will seem all so very wrong as we fight for control that we’ve never had and would be happier without. Why can’t we just let it go?

I highly recommend Claudia Cantrell’s story as she brings Scripture into our focus and into our interaction with others, using God’s Word throughout the stages of life.

It is humbling to see yourself in this read and to find through your own experience that it is too easy to take the lead. Due to pride, want, and self-sufficiency to the extreme, we take our own directions when what we really need to do is follow instead. Inside you will find many points where you relate to her struggle, and to your own surprise, you will say that was I too! All the while, you will learn through Biblical terms where you need to take heed inside of your current day.

Claudia Cantrell with Kim P. Davis will take you into Claudia’s life and out of your own, placing you where you need to be on your own journey.

In happy times and crushing times, we are her traveling companions as she tries to find love while she’s missing the love of God. She is semi-faithful and fully damaged through pain, mistakes, self-doubt, and solitude. Overpowered in her spiritual life, she runs aground in both success and failure as guilt leaves its miles long trail until Claudia surrenders, and then she finds a better way of life because through Jesus Christ she finds true love.

SACRED LOVE: A Journey of Singleness, Belonging, and Finding True Love by Claudia Cantrell with Kim P. Davis is a chronicle providing a call to us. Will we begin our own sojourn toward repentance, transformation, and surrender?
