Atlanta, GA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/31/2014 -- It is a common image from legend: a man, stumbling through a barren desert, aching with thirst and half-blinded by sun. Ahead, he sees something emerging from the sands. It is a desert, with lush trees and a pool of glimmering water.
This image resonates with human beings the world over. Why?
For Todd Shuler, author of the hotly anticipated new book, ‘The Well-Watered Life’, the answer is simple, yet deeply profound.
“We have all felt the bleakness that comes from thirst,” says Shuler. “My feeling is that the desert represents a spiritual thirst that many don’t know how to quench. They seek out other avenues – alcohol, cars or wealth – and yet they ignore the growing desert in their hearts.”
With ‘The Well-Watered Life’, Shuler brings his own experiences to the forefront, offering gentle guidance to any who might be struggling in their lives. As the author points out, many battle with mundane jobs, stagnant relationships, moving into adulthood or facing the loss of a loved one.
“The book is not just for Christians,” says Shuler. “It really is for anyone who feels that thirst – and they know who they are. It is for anyone who asks life’s elemental questions: Who am I? What am I? Where do I come from? Where is my life going? It is for anyone who wants to connect with the Holy Spirit and truly feel satisfied – and I mean beyond the physical. Of course food and entertainment can be lovely, but as human beings, we need something more.”
‘The Well-Watered Life’ is a singular work; a guidebook to spiritual life, a testament to the power of God’s love, and a light in the darkness for anyone who feels stranded in a desert of their own making.
Feeling like you’ve been left for dead in a “desert” place of your life?
Take heart. God has not forgotten you.
Author Todd Shuler’s message is based on his reflections and meditations into the life of Abraham’s son, Isaac. The Well-Watered Life is about thriving in the deserts of your own life, being led out by the power of the Holy Spirit, and learning to be a source of refreshing encouragement to others.
Come—drink and be refreshed!
Since its publication, the book has earned glowing reviews.
“It’s a must-read for the person whose life’s journey has lost passion, power, and purpose.

I highly recommend this book for those beginning their walk with Christ or those who seek to continue toward the mature, well-watered life!” — Dr. Carlos McCloud, Theologian
“Todd vividly portrays the healthy and dynamic Christian life as one of intentionality; the reader is brought to the brink of decision as to the future direction of his life as a follower of Christ.” —Stan Hutchinson, Engineer, Financial Counselor and Instructor, Author of ‘Financial Peace of Mind from the WORD’
