Like a Second Layer of Skin
Imagine love as a coating around your body. Like your actual skin, it offers protection for the body's inner mechanisms. In the ups and downs of everyday living, many long for soothing nurture, sustenance, and protection-a sort of spiritual second skin. Dorothy Winbush Riley offers readers just that. She has written a book of poetic statements that affirm faith, prayer life, love of self, love for others, and the love of God. Like a Second Layer of Skin acknowledges the power within each of us to create our own second skin by speaking the life we want into existence. By hearing positive and affirmative statements, we have the opportunity to create the kind of spiritual environment in which we want to live.
