Author Kate Nicholas talks about her book Sea Changed and her miraculous journey through cancer.
Best-selling author Kate Nicholas will be at Luton Christian Bookshop on Friday 3rd talking about Sea Changed, her moving account of her unconventional faith journey and search for truth, peace and healing, which was recently shortlisted as Christian Biography of the year at the CRT awards.
Kate wrote this book, initially as a legacy for her children, after being diagnosed with advanced inoperable breast advanced cancer. She wanted them to know just how much God loved her and had stood by her throughout her life, even as she faced potentially leaving them. But in her darkest hour, Kate experienced a peace and healing beyond understanding and Sea Changed has now become a platform for her ministry of hope.
Kate’s journey to faith was not a straightforward one, and her message provides assurance that the path to God does not always follow a straight line, and that God can be found in unexpected places; from rural England to some of the toughest places on the planet, in the secular buzz of the media newsroom and the world of public relations, and even in facing ones own mortality.
Sea Changed is for anyone that has ever felt that they have been looking for God in all the wrong places, or struggled to find him in the face of adversity, and will encourage readers at any stage of their faith journey to recognise the unseen hand that shifts our perspective, alters our trajectory or lifts us up even in our darkest moments.
Kate’s story is a remarkable testimony to the grace of God. The reader is left with a powerful sense of the wonder of God and a longing to discover a new level of the presence and touch of Jesus.
