The connection between nature and God has been an important one throughout our history. Through his parables, Jesus used nature to teach us many important lessons about how to live with and honor our fellow man. Now, Closer to Nature, Closer to God presents a fully illustrated exploration of the connections among God, humans, and nature. Author and artist Claire-Elise Dimanche offers this book as a source of inspiration for people of all ages and as a reminder that Mother Nature takes care of us. An accomplished painter, Dimanche has included images of her paintings to illustrate her written pieces. She seeks to capture the beauty of her surroundings and show it to the world, and she firmly believes that we need to stop, breathe, and take the time to appreciate our surroundings. Her writings cover such varied topics as love, fear and faith, and God's love and understanding for us. She hopes to inspire us in our search for happiness, peace, success, and love. Closer to Nature, Closer to God opens a portal to the wondrous world of God's love and the loving connection that we have with him through nature and our relationships with others.
