A Whisper in the Woods: Quiet Escapes in a Noisy World was birthed from Martin Wiles' numerous treks with his two children and his middle brother in mountainous areas on the eastern coast of the United States. Through these hiking and camping experiences, God taught him valuable lessons that have seen him through many difficult life experiences.
Martin's weekly devotionals found in A Whisper in the Woods take the reader out of the noise that often accompanies living in this world and into the quiet escapades of wooded areas where the voice of God is more clearly heard.
As you walk with Martin through the mountain valleys and over the high summits, you too will hear God whisper words of comfort to you.
Church seems to be all about obeying a set of rules—rules you can’t necessarily find in the Bible but rules the church folks expect you to obey. God, on the other hand, often has a different set of rules—ones sprinkled with grace and mercy.
If you’re struggling with the real meaning of going to church and following Christ, then Grits, Gumbo, and Going to Church is for you. Martin Wiles has been in the pew or the pulpit his whole life. He has experienced the best and the worst in the church. He knows it can be a place of pain or a place of blessing.
Grits, Gumbo, and Going to Church can help you see church from God’s perspective, as His home—and yours. Church can be as comfortable as the porch swing on your grandmother’s front porch and as satisfying as her homemade apple pie. Are you ready to come home?
