“Jeff Jay is a masterful guide, taking us with him on a gripping odyssey through perilous ocean waters, and through the anguish of his own soul. It’s a journey you will not forget. Written with stunning imagery, Mr. Jay’s encounters with the Divine are thrilling to read. I was captivated start to finish.”

In 1990 Jeff Jay set off in an old sailboat for the Caribbean, alone and unprepared, and almost died in a violent winter storm 200 miles off Cape Hatteras. But Navigating Grace isn’t just a book about survival.
Years before the voyage, Jeff had almost died of his alcoholism, rescued only by the love of others. But Navigating Grace isn’t just a book about recovery. In the years between his addiction and his voyage, Jeff’s brother committed suicide, his father died, and his first marriage broke up. But Navigating Grace isn’t just a book about overcoming grief and loss.
Navigating Grace is a book about forgiveness and faith, disaster and deliverance, and the pivotal moments that reshape a life. Jeff Jay’s prose is quick and vivid, and his story will make you believe in miracles again.
“Navigating Grace is a gripping journey through the storms of life. Through his life-story of pain and loss, Jeff Jay guides us through turmoil and perils, and shows how to find hope and serenity from within.”
–Rabbi Yarden Blumstein, Friendship Circle
