about this item

Jeff Jay’s recent life was full of tragedy: his marriage had ended, his father had passed away, his brother had committed suicide, and Jeff’s own alcoholism had taken him to the edge of death.In his desire for a fresh start, Jeff set out on a solo adventure by sea on an old sloop named Lifeboat. It ultimately became a journey of personal transformation. He cast off in Annapolis, Maryland with an eye toward the Caribbean. Finally able to breathe, Jeff relaxed into his first day sailing the Atlantic when a dark winter storm descended, tossing him into a week-long fight for survival on the open sea. As he faced the realization that only divine intervention could deliver him from certain death, Jeff desperately called on the deity that had intervened in the darkest hours of his addiction years earlier.An intensely personal testimony to calling on the power of grace in our darkest hours, Jeff’s is a beautifully written tale of far-fetched dreams, desperate prayers, and those miraculous moments that change our lives forever.
In 1990 Jeff Jay took off alone on a sailboat from Annapolis, Maryland heading for the Caribbean and almost died in a violent winter storm 100 miles off Cape Hatteras. ButNavigating Grace isn?t just a book about survival at sea. Years before that, his alcoholism had taken him to the brink of suicide, and only a first-class miracle saved his life. ButNavigating Grace isn?t just a book about recovery from addiction. In the intervening years his younger brother had committed suicide, he?d held his father?s hand as he died, and his first marriage had broken up. ButNavigating Grace isn?t just a book about loss.
Navigating Grace is a book about all these things, but most of all, it is an intensely personal testimony as to how God works through people and grace seeps through tragedy to provide redemption in our darkest hours. In telling his tale of far-fetched dreams, desperate prayers, and an old sloop named Lifeboat, Jeff Jay reveals those life-changing moments when miracles happen in times of pain and fear to change our lives forever.
