Hypocrisy is the 'monkey' on everyone's back. We claim to have 'faith' and then muddle through our days as we struggle with our circumstances, our priorities, our relatives and our sorrows. Or, we worship at the 'foot of self-sufficiency' and struggle to maintain peace and contentment. This book is about the simple, basic, truths of scripture and how to apply faith in Jesus Christ to the realities of life that are common to everyone. This book would be appropriate as a daily devotional. Laura Lapp is an author, speaker, wife and mother. She and her husband have been married for 32 years and have a daughter.
