"Stumbling Into Grace" by Lisa Harper - Book Review

In a world of so many people who act fake, it was a like a breath of fresh air when I found Lisa Harper. Lisa is one of the most authentic Christian authors I've read in a long while. Lisa never tries to hide her past or embarrassing moments, but uses them to encourage, teach and provide a little humor for you along the way. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who makes a fool of myself on a regular basis.

Stumbling Into Grace focuses on three main topics: Real Life, Real Gifts and Real Growth. Lisa turns her stories of embarrassments or hurts into a teaching moment by taking scripture and applying truths to them. There are moments you will find yourself laughing out loud at stories and at other times overcome with emotion over the real and hurtful parts of life. One of the funniest moments and my favorite chapter in the book by far, is chapter eight titled The Bride Who Tripped Down the Aisle. She starts every chapter off with "So, today I've been thinking about..." This chapter in particular starts of with "So, today I've been thinking about the gift of good humor." Humor does ensue. Oh, how I wish I could share this chapter with you. I was reading this chapter late at night while my husband slept across the room. It took everything in me to keep my laughter under control and at a low volume. If you're looking for a lighthearted and honest look at life as a woman and was to turn those in to a focus on God, then I highly suggest checking out Lisa Harper's Stumbling Into Grace. You won't regret it.
