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.

My review:

This was a beautiful, encouraging hardcover book that would be great to read as a devotional or just when you can find a few minutes in a hectic day.  Each chapter is short, from 2-4 pages, and divided into 7 section, such as purpose, surrender and trust.  There was a lot of truth to ponder in this book, reminders that we don't have to have it all together or be superwomen.  God wants to use us in our weakness;  He just asks us to be willing.  I was challenged to be fearless, to trust, to know that He's with me always.  I was reminded of how much He loves me.  Some of the stories made me laugh and some cry.  Some told a story and others felt like a friend baring their soul.  A couple were even more like poems.  Most included a Scripture verse, but some had a quote at the end.  The photographs were beautiful, but would have been even more so in color.  I also wasn't familiar with most of the women, but it seems like they all have a blog and some have written books or are involved in other ministries.  I highly recommend this book to all women!

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
