Actress and Main Floor host Nancy Stafford (best known for her starring role as Michelle Thomas on Matlock) digs below our culture's fixation on outward appearance to show you that true beauty is more than skin-deep.

Do you see a unique individual created in the image ofBeautyitself-one chosen, Cherished, and valued in the eyes of God?

In thirty-one biblical, highly personal meditations, Nancy Stafford leads us to the edge of an endless sea-the vast, incomprehensible ocean of God's love. Nancy reflects upon the terrible beauty of His love, the wonder of forgiveness, waiting in His love, mystery and intimacy, and the calming reality of love that never fails. Each meditation includes a Scripture to ponder and an opportunity to respond to God in prayer. Here are memorable thoughts to cling to through the hours of the day. . . and night! A Touchhellip;A Tastehellip;A Testament of Never-Ending Love Imagine what life would be like if you began to grasp the depth of God's love for you. It would change you. It would calm your fears, transform how you see yourself, and ignite your heart with love for Him and others. In thirty one stirring reflections, Nancy Stafford offers a fresh glimpse into the many facets of His eternal love. She invites you to wade into the deep, to venture further into the mystery and majesty of His unfathomable love, to embark on a never-ending journey into the heart of God. Come. Leave the shore. Experience the wonder of His love. Story Behind the Book Within these pages, my objective is to merely begin to help readers "dip their toe" into the vastness of God's love for them. My hope is that each piece will draw the reader closer to the heart of God, where His love crowds out fear, cynicism, loneliness, and apathy. I hope readers will be reminded of-no, ignited by-God's love for them. My prayer is that these thoughts and reflections will give readers new eyes to see God's passionate presence in their own lives and that they will sense His whisper to "taste and see" that He is good, trustworthy, and a lover like no other.
