Stumbling Into Grace

I picked this particular book to read for two reasons and only two reasons. I love the cover! Who could look at this sweet little girl and not want to open the book? And because Lisa Harper is a Women of Faith porch pal and I LOVE the women of faith! I have never read one of Lisa's books, but I can guarantee after reading this book that I will look for more by her! The book was very conversational and funny. It almost felt like she was sitting right in front of you at the coffee shop, telling you her life story and giving you scripture to inspire you along your journey. I really felt like she's one of those people that will tell you like it is. I don't know if you have a person like that in your life, but if you don't, you need to find one! They are a huge blessing and invaluable!

The description of the book says: Humorous yet poignant stories from Lisa's life help readers relate to spiritual truths found in the life and ministry of Christ.

Stumbling Into Grace is the diary-devotional of one woman's honest, ongoing, bumbling journey of faith and how she finds encouragement through a deeper understanding of Christ's time on earth. Within each chapter she alternates her often humorous memoir with stirring portraits of Jesus and his own encounters as recorded in the New Testament.

Both intimately relevant and refreshingly inspirational, this book will help readers to jettison the theological misconceptions, guilt, shame, and hypocrisy they struggle with, exchanging them for a vibrant, passionate relationship with Christ that results in a more abundant, joyful life.

I chose the ebook version and I really wish I had it in print, so I could pass it on to friends! I loved the questions at the end of each chapter. It would be easy to use this book for a ladies Bible study. I wanted to fill in the answers at the end of each chapter. The questions were wonderful! I would definitely recommend this book!
