REVIEW: STAY: Lessons my dogs taught me about life, loss, and grace by Dave Burchett
This is a sweet book that reads like a Christian devotional (as the chapters are relatively short, usually less than 10 pages) and is a treat for dog lovers!
Throughout the book, author Dave Burchett lays out lessons he has learned over the years from his beloved canines like gratitude, living in the moment, and forgiveness. Burchett then relates those lessons from his dogs to biblical stories, turning the wisdom back to our relationship with the Lord.
I finished the book with many dog-eared pages (yes, I used that pun!) and tears. Some of the lessons Burchett learned along the way came through loss of his beloved pets—heart wrenching, but beautifully captured.
If you are a dog lover or know one, hand them this book. And if you know a dog lover who is not a Christian, this could be a great outreach tool to introduce them to Scripture and the Creator of all.
