From the Back Cover

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 take on this book:
Sometimes it takes reading a story that someone else writes to hear the voice of God in such a way that the story touches your heart and allows you to open your eyes and heart to the message that God is trying to get across to you. Well that's the sort of book The Beauty of Grace is, it's filled with short stories written by some of today's most popular writers, stories that will stir the soul, touch the heart and perhaps even open your eyes and ears to the message God might be trying to impart to you. Broken down into seven different topics including purpose,the big picture, surrender,trust, lessons learned, hope and encouragement, and worship, each topic includes several different stories that are meant to encourage and inspire. This is such a wonderful book, from the cover to the pages inside it's like a breath of fresh spring air. Each story includes a scripture verse that correlates with what was just read. While I had heard of several of the authors, a few were new to me, so it was a great way to sample their work.Overall a wonderful book that I used as a daily devotional, reading it morning and evening. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
