Book Description

Take long walks.

Watch the sunset.

Shoes are optional.

The beautiful four-color book of inspirational photos, Bible verses, quotations, and short writings invites you to escape the buzz of the everyday and into the tranquility that the beach offers. Each section of this book will cover a “beach rule” and encouraging thoughts on how you can incorporate that mind-set or behavior into your daily life.

Much of Jesus’ ministry happened along the seashore, where He told His followers about the peace and rest His Father offered them and modeled the best way to live. In the same way, this book transports you to a favorite beach locale and helps you apply rules for beach living to everyday life—rules to slow down, to notice the beauty in the little things, and to incorporate rest into even the most stressful times.

Full of serene images, inspiring quotations, and restful Bible verses, this book will be a natural addition to your coffee table or desk, as well as a lovely gift for that beach-loving friend.

For as the waters fill the sea,   
the earth will be filled with an awareness    
of the glory of the Lord.

—Habakkuk 2:14 NLT

My Review

Life Is Better at the Beach: Inspirational Rules for Living Each Day Like You're at the Beach is beautifully illustrated and inspiring book by Thomas Nelson publishers. Life is Better at the Beach...that really is true isn't it? Soaking up the sun and breathing in the fresh sea air...what could be better than that. I love the beach rules that Life is Better at the Beach presents to the reader.

The book is divided up by beach rules which are:

BEACH RULE #1: Wake up smiling.
BEACH RULE #2: Shoes are optional.
BEACH RULE #3: Soak up the sun.
BEACH RULE #4: Look for seashells.
BEACH RULE #5: Build sandcastles.
BEACH RULE #6: Ride the waves.
BEACH RULE #7: Breathe in the fresh air.
BEACH RULE #8: Nap often.
BEACH RULE #9: Take long walks.
BEACH RULE #10: Observe the tide.
BEACH RULE #11: Read a good book.
BEACH RULE #12: Listen to the crashing waves.
BEACH RULE #13: Don’t miss the sunset.
BEACH RULE #14: Leave your troubles behind.
BEACH RULE #15: Make memories.

I highly recommend Life is Better at the Beach as a perfect gift to someone who needs to slow down and appreciate life more. Or for someone who needs some inspiration in their lives. Amidst the beautiful photos and inspiring bible verses there is text that reminds us to live life everyday like we are at the beach.

Life is Better at the Beach is a lovely book. I know that I will refer to it often when I need to be reminded about the pleasures in life that the Lord has provided to us.
