My Review:
As I read Surprised By Grace, I found myself surprisingly delighted with each word read. The style of the book made me feel like I was reading a personal journal, yet also inspired me and encouraged me. If you are looking for a book that will walk you through growing your relationship with Christ, this is a book that you need to read. It's a quick read, but one that you will reference to over and over. The author did a wonderful job reminding me that God will pursue us, regardless of what age and stage we are at, and through that pursuit, we will grow deeper as Christian women!
This would be a delightful gift for any woman in your life!
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
