Life’s hectic nature steals our peace. We stress about creating quiet time with God and making it a priority. Inside we all yearn for that heart connection: the feeling of the Holy Spirit moving within us.
“The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.” ~Romans 8:16
Relationships weave the tapestry of our lives — friendship, marriage, the bond between parent and child. We serve a relational God, in whose image we are created. My new book, The Beauty of Grace, explores our deepest, most intimate relationship: the one with our heavenly Father.
The Beauty of Grace contains over 50 inspiring, heartfelt stories of faith from some of today’s foremost writers and bloggers, including Holley Gerth, Margaret Feinberg, Melanie Shankle, Lisa-Jo Baker, Ann Voskamp, and more. They share tales of their personal relationship with a God who bestows His unfathomable grace upon them daily. A related Scripture or quote concludes each one.
Illustrated throughout with my photography — images of God’s incredible creation — it is my hope you’ll find The Beauty of Grace to be a haven of calm contemplation amidst the chaos.
I’ve arranged this collection into seven categories — Purpose, The Big Picture, Surrender, Trust, Lessons Learned, Hope & Encouragement, and Worship — multiple aspects of the Christian faith. Although you might read it from front to back the first time, I believe you will return to these stories again and again, depending on the needs of your heart.
Recommend it to your book club or read it together with friends! Let it serve as an impetus to deeper conversations and honest revelations about real life and how God meets you there.
I’ve seen the power of the written word — the significance of story — in my own life. Words can strengthen, comfort, inspire, edify, transform. I believe this book holds that regenerative power for daughters of the King.
Are you hungry for hope? Is it your desire not only to connect with other women, but more deeply with your Savior? These stories of faith and God’s provision amid the chaos of the everyday will uplift and encourage you, connecting your heart with God and reminding you of this truth: He sees and cares for you in all circumstances.
In the foreword, Holley Gerth describes The Beauty of Grace as “an opportunity to slow down for a moment, take a deep breath, and know what we all need to understand most: you’re loved.”
This isn’t a self-help book, it’s a soul-help book. Let The Beauty of Grace help you experience God’s love right here, right now, right where you are.
