I had my first experience with Sandi Patty when I attended a Women of Faith even a few years ago. The thing I remember most about her was her voice and her blonde hair. I did not know much of her history going into The Edge of the Divine, but after finishing it, I feel compelled to read some of her other books to find out more.
Sandi had a lap band surgery about two years ago and in the midst of it, she learned a few things that she graciously shared with her readers. One of the recurring messages in the book is that God likes to make the ordinary extraordinary. God repeatedly uses the mundane to create the divine. Sandi talks about those moments as edges.
The Edge of the Divine is not about her weight loss, but about the mind and spirit work that Sandi has been going through in the midst of weight loss. I am struck repeatedly as I think back upon the book of the phrase “I am enough.” She encourages us to believe that not only is God enough for us, but that we are enough for God just as we are. In order to believe that you must be willing to walk out of the dark thoughts and patterns in your life tell you otherwise.
I highly recommend The Edge of the Divine for Sandi Patty fans, those that are struggling with an addiction, and those that desire to walk closer with God.
