Stumbling Into Grace Book by Lisa Harper Review

The photo on the cover of this book is such a powerful statement. We are all children of God. But God's treasures us as such and loves us as daughters. Stumbling Into Grace by Lisa Harper is a devotional book that will have you laughing, crying, and finding agreement with so much of what she shares. Harper is funny and witty and her stories are so relate-able for women. She shares things that God has shown us in his word and made this something that every woman can use in their lives.

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 will go ahead and say it...I love this book. Lisa Harper is funny and her writing reflects her personality so well. I was excited to hear Harper speak at the Women of Faith event that I attended this summer. And she was a great speaker. She's very open and real, and this is exactly how her book is presented.

I recommend this book to any woman who is looking for something new and fun to read. It's a devotional and a diary wrapped in one. You'll enjoy Lisa Harper's banter and energy. And I think Stumbling Into Grace by Lisa Harper will also make a great Christmas gift for any woman on your list. You can find this book in stores and online too.
