Stay Lessons my dogs taught me about life, loss, and grace 
By Dave Burchett

I was blessed by this book. On my journey with Christ I have been down many roads, some were very wrong teachings. Thankfully in my relationship with Christ I have been able to move from wrong teachings and move toward the true gospel of grace. Dave does a beautiful job of explaining what he has learned in life about God's grace through his dogs. This book is full of emotion. I really enjoyed reading it. Dave writes beautifully and made me feel like I was there looking in on his family from the side lines. I now have my teenager reading it for home school.
There are many nuggets of truth in this book but one that stands out to me is living in the moment. Dogs live for today with no regrets or shame. Dave explains how we should be living remembering who we are in Christ. When trouble comes it isn't God punishing us, (as some would have you believe). We need to look to God and trust in him. I really can't do the book justice trying to explain it. Read it for yourself and let God touch your heart as you read. I highly recommend this book.
I received this book free for review from Tyndale House Publishers. This is my honest opinion of the book, I was not required to write a positive review.
I ordered Dave Burchett's other two books, I will let you know what I think after I read them.
