Living Water to Refresh Your Soul by Tracy Smoak

Smoak has combined her love of photography with Scripture and encouraging words to create an inspiring devotional. We readers are taken through Lake County, Florida, with beautiful water scenes on a journey from the southern Green Swamp toward Lake Griffin in the north. Smoak gives interesting information about the physical features in each photo. Encouraging Bible verses are included, as well as reflective prayers and practical faith steps. The entries combine to form thirty faith steps encouraging us to a deeper walk with God.

I liked this inspirational photographic journey through central Florida. I've not been to this area and I really appreciated the photos and informative descriptions of its features. The best aspect of this book, however, is the inspiration and encouraging faith direction it contains.

Good photos of God's creation and inspirational content combine to make this book a beautiful and spiritually encouraging one.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
