Author Event: Jonathan Martin - How to Survive a Shipwreck

Event date: 
Saturday, July 30, 2016 - 2:00pm

Life is turbulent. On that we call all agree. Dashed dreams. Broken relationships. Wounds from the past. There are so many ways life can send us crashing against the rocks. In this deeply personal book, Jonathan Martin draws from his own stories of failure and loss to find the love that can only be discovered on the bottom. How to Survive a Shipwreck is an invitation to trust the goodness of God and the resilience of your own soul. Jonathan's clarion call is this: no matter how hard you've fallen, no matter how much you've been hurt, help is on the way - just when you need it most.
