Sweet Maria Goof has given us the most precious, most sacred look inside her heart with this, her first book. She has opened her heart and home to us in a way that quietly invites you to sit with her and soak in her gentle words and wise teachings. I just wish I could visit with her and study more in depth her ways of hospitality and gentle peacemaking. That would be a treasure.
And while her husband Bob is lively and excited, Sweet Maria is so tender and calm. The two go together perfectly and yes, their books look perfect on the shelf side by side.
I'm so thankful for the Goff's. Bob and now his wife Sweet Maria have such a way of speaking love and encouragement straight into your soul. Love Lives Here is ripe with encouragement for the daily mom trials, the daughter from the rough home life, and the woman whose experienced the ultimate betrayal by loved ones.
Don't miss out on what this book can speak into your life.
I have been a Goff family fan for a while, and I love the joy conveyed in their stories. I enjoyed Maria Goff's writing style, and I'm inspired by her stories. I'm encouraged and ready to look for Jesus under the surface. "Love keeps us going, and hope moves our feet". I made lots of highlights, and I plan on sharing this book with others for many years to come.
I haven't had this feeling reading a book since I read "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years" by Donald Miller. It's as if I know these two from reading their books ..... we've shared a cup of coffee and opened up our hearts, even though they are not physically in the room with me. Maria is a kindred spirit, her writing shows us the good, the bad, the beautiful and the ugly and how God works all of it together for His good in our lives. Looking forward to the rest of the journey and sharing her book with friends and family!
