Stumbling into Grace

What They Say:
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.

My Take:
I laughed and cried! Lisa is funny and easy to relate to her life. I found as I was reading this book, I was posting quotes from the book on my FaceBook feed. For example:

"....since the beginning of biblical history, people of faith have attached rules and conditions—far beyond the directives God gives us in Scripture—to our belief systems. The heavenly Father’s precious children—filthy scoundrels all of us, apart from His mercy—seem intent on making each other miserable......more from the book I am reading!"
It seemed like the God was using the book to speak directly to me where I was that day. The daily journal entries really helped me to learn about myself too! If you are looking for a devotion, check out Stumbling into Grace!

I would recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5.
