Dear Lighthouse Trails:
I have a short note on an article I saw on The Blaze. Prospective presidential candidate Scott Walker mentioned the book Jesus Calling by Sarah Young during an interview pushing up sales of the book. I thought you might like to pass this along. Thank the Lord for all you do, and my family prays for all off your authors and staff a lot.
LTRP Note: The following is one of many news stories about Scott Walker’s promotion of Jesus Calling. Posted for informational and research purposes only.

“Scott Walker plugs a Jesus devotional in a not-so-subtle sign to evangelicals”
(RNS) When Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker spoke last Saturday (April 25) to an influential gathering of Christian conservatives in an Iowa church, he brought along a little reading material.
Standing before more than 1,000 people at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition, the Wisconsin governor used part of his time to read from “Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence,” a Christian devotional written in the first-person voice of Jesus by missionary-turned-author Sarah Young.
“‘The way to walk through demanding times is to grip my hand tightly,’” Walker read to the crowd. “‘Regardless of the day’s problems, I can keep you in perfect peace as you stay close to me.’”
According to reports, the crowd was “rapt.” In the days after Scott’s talk, the book shot to the top of a couple of online retailers’ best-seller lists, including Amazon.
Not that the book needed Walker’s help. Click here to continue reading.
