Publisher's Summary

Who are we...really? As depression, addiction, and suicide become more commonplace in today’s culture, it seems we have lost sight of who we actually are. Like a whale on a beach, too many of us are finding ourselves breathing shallow, feeling stranded and alone. 

The truth is we can cut free from the things that hold us back if we can catch a clear vision of the true character of God. And like a mighty redwood tree, we can choose to live healthy lives filled with purpose, rising confidently above the chaos. 

As we choose to align our hearts and minds with the truth, we will discover that maybe God isn’t exactly who we thought he was - maybe life with him is a whole lot bigger and more exciting than we ever imagined. 

Redwoods and Whales will give you the tools you need to help push aside the things that entangle and grab hold of the life you were born to live.

Absolutely Beautiful!

Phil gives simple, comical, deeply moving insight for this generation. You can feel God’s heart through the pages. Side note: Phil’s reading voice is as great as his singing voice. By far my favorite audible reader so far!

Profoundly simple, simply profound

Phil’s book is a meaningful introduction to, or return to, God’s love, forgiveness, relationships with, and purposes for us. Simple to understand but profound in value and meaning. Everything in complete agreement with a scripture and with what the Bible tells us about Jesus and his teaching. Thank you, and looking forward to seeing how God uses the author next in ministry.

Refocus

This book written in a conversational style will help you to see the things you are chasing that are not in your best interest and, instead, focus on the true nature of God.

Get this for your teen!

A very Kiwi masterpiece for the youth group range! Entertaining and very practical and wise. The author let's you know what kind of book this is very well in his introduction, with the exception of him being too modest about it. It's a wonderful book!
