Imagine a restaurant where the menu offers
Who wouldn’t want a taste of that?
In Spaghetti for the Soul, Kathy Troccoli and Ellie Lofaro invite you to a fabulous feast for the spirit. Drawing upon their shared Italian roots in Brooklyn and a friendship rooted in faith, they compare life to a heaping plate of spaghetti.
“Just the thought of swirling and slurping the unruly strands brings a grin,” they write. “Spaghetti is delicious, nutritious and satisfying. It’s also sticky and uncontrollable. And isn’t that just like this journey we’re all on?”
With wit, warmhearted humor, irresistible grace, and keen insights, Kathy and Ellie urge you to take a generous helping of the richly flavored abundant life that only God can give. They share how the soul-satisfying seasonings of faith, hope, and love can transform your attitude, outlook, and actions. Tied to their popular Spaghetti for the Soul Conferences, the authors dish up in this book biblical truths with lively storytelling and even some mouthwatering family recipes to help you experience fully a renewed zest for the God who invites you to “taste and see.”
Christian recording artist Troccoli and Bible teacher Lofaro dub themselves two Italians from Brooklyn who feast on the life God gives. With New York born sass and bravado, the authors successfully dish up a five-course spiritual meal, heavy on principles such as faith, hope and love. Good friends since the 1990s, this writing duo share their similar backgrounds (with delicious family recipes) and discuss their dissimilar life paths (Troccoli is a single professional woman; Lofaro, a married mom of three in ministry) to depict how God is present and active no matter where life takes them. Evangelical readers will appreciate the authors candor as they discuss bouts with depression, bulimia, low self-esteem and general discontent. The authors tempt readers to taste and see that the Lord is good, and they provide the means to do so through this bounty of tempting ingredients for experiencing hope in the heat-filled kitchen of adversity. This book is both fun and faith-promoting, a tasty combination. Mangia!
