Imagine a restaurant where the menu offers
Who wouldn’t want a taste of that?
In Spaghetti for the Soul, Kathy Troccoli and Ellie Lofaro invite you to a fabulous feast for the spirit. Drawing upon their shared Italian roots in Brooklyn and a friendship rooted in faith, they compare life to a heaping plate of spaghetti.
“Just the thought of swirling and slurping the unruly strands brings a grin,” they write. “Spaghetti is delicious, nutritious and satisfying. It’s also sticky and uncontrollable. And isn’t that just like this journey we’re all on?”
With wit, warmhearted humor, irresistible grace, and keen insights, Kathy and Ellie urge you to take a generous helping of the richly flavored abundant life that only God can give. They share how the soul-satisfying seasonings of faith, hope, and love can transform your attitude, outlook, and actions. Tied to their popular Spaghetti for the Soul Conferences, the authors dish up in this book biblical truths with lively storytelling and even some mouthwatering family recipes to help you experience fully a renewed zest for the God who invites you to “taste and see.”
