The Beauty of Grace: A Book Review

About The Book:

This is your invitation . . . 
to slow down, 
take a deep breath, 
and know that 
you are loved.
In this hectic life, it's easy to forget that God is always near at hand, even though He sends us frequent reminders. The beauty amid the mess, a well-timed word of encouragement from a friend, the memories that won't let go of our hearts--they're all ways God extends an open hand to us. But if we're not paying attention, we can miss it.

Combining heartfelt stories from some of today's foremost writers with Dawn's stunning photography of God's incredible creation, The Beauty of Grace is your haven of calm contemplation amid the chaos. This inspiring collection includes stories of cultivating friendship, waiting on God, choosing joy, staying connected, learning to trust, and much more.

If you're in need of a little peace, a little quiet, a little beauty, find comfort in this: you're invited to experience them all within the pages of this soul-stirring book.

You'll enjoy stories on purpose, perspective, surrender, trust, hope, encouragement, worship, and lessons learned from

My Review:

If you are looking for a book that combines writings from some of today's best known and best-selling authors, then you have to absolutely pick up The Beauty of Grace. 

With almost twenty authors, there is going to be something for everyone who opens this book. The cover caught my eye first because daisies are my favorite, and of course, the forward is written by one of my favorite authors, Holley Gerth.

The book is divided up into seven sections:

1. Purpose
2. The Big Picture
3. Surrender
4. Trust
5. Lessons Learned
6. Hope and Encouragement
7. Worship

Within these sections are between five and seven chapters, each only about two pages. This book will inspire you, challenge you and allow you to feel emotions that perhaps you may not have allowed yourself to feel in a long time. This is the perfect book to use for a quiet time, devotional time or just to use snuggled up under a comforter with a cup of tea. It is a wonderfully encouraging book that will give you a break during the chaos of your daily living. It's a very good reminder about God's grace, mercy and forgiveness and a message we can always be reminded about.

The Beauty of Grace is the perfect gift idea for any women in your life, and even for yourself.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.

BUY IT: You can purchase The Beauty of Grace online through Amazon. It is also available through your favorite Christian book retailer from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
