Summary

Who are we...really? As depression, addiction, and suicide become more commonplace in today’s culture, it seems we have lost sight of who we actually are. Like a whale on a beach, too many of us are finding ourselves breathing shallow, feeling stranded and alone. 

The truth is we can cut free from the things that hold us back if we can catch a clear vision of the true character of God. And like a mighty redwood tree, we can choose to live healthy lives filled with purpose, rising confidently above the chaos. 

As we choose to align our hearts and minds with the truth, we will discover that maybe God isn’t exactly who we thought he was - maybe life with him is a whole lot bigger and more exciting than we ever imagined. 

Redwoods and Whales will give you the tools you need to help push aside the things that entangle and grab hold of the life you were born to live.

Profoundly simple, simply profound

Phil’s book is a meaningful introduction to, or return to, God’s love, forgiveness, relationships with, and purposes for us. Simple to understand but profound in value and meaning. Everything in complete agreement with a scripture and with what the Bible tells us about Jesus and his teaching. Thank you, and looking forward to seeing how God uses the author next in ministry.

Refocus

This book written in a conversational style will help you to see the things you are chasing that are not in your best interest and, instead, focus on the true nature of God.

I've been praying for this.

Exactly what the great physician prescribed. Crazy how he hit most of my 25 year old thoughts; wanting more, wanting to delete social media, wanting to fix my eyes on the Lord, and many many others. I can't wait to listen again and again. This literature widened my eyes to the future God has for me.

Powerful message, down to Earth presentation

I highly recommend this book. It will touch your heart and soul. The message is powerful and presented in a friendly, down to Earth style. It felt as if the author were sitting next to me in my van, chatting about how much God loves us
