Kimm Crandall (who is also a terrific follow on Twitter @Big_Kimm) is soooooooooooo vulnerable in this book you can't help but to think 1 of 2 things. Either this woman is nuts and out of her mind for sharing all she did and doesn't understand Christians aren't supposed to share their weaknesses OR she is SO convinced of who she is in Christ that she doesn't feel she has to hide behind her mistakes or failures because Christ alone has become her reputation! (I personally think it's a little bit of both haha)
I cannot recommend this book highly enough and yes I even put it up there with books like "3 Free Sins" by Steve Brown, "Jesus + Nothing=Everything" by Tullian Tchividjian and "Because He loves me" by Elyse Fitzpatrick. All of these books unleash God's crazy, radical, scandalous, Grace all up in your face with no strings attached, no filter and no ifs ands or buts to it. And in the crazy world of parenting, "Embracing the chaos" is about all you can do without losing your mind at some of the things our children put us through. This little book has really helped me get through some truly chaotic situations in my own life!
To me, her chapter on Grace (Chapter 4 "Discovering Grace") is worth the price of the book by itself. Here is an excerpt:
"...is grace really that tame? No!...Grace is a lion whose roar shakes the ground beneath my feet: scary and dangerous. And grace is a mystery so disturbing I can't bring myself to look away. In fact, I can't help but to inch closer because I want a better look...But somehow as I draw near to God's grace-somehow in all the confusion, wonder, and ridiculousness-I fall in love. Not in a sweet, tender, cautious way, but like a kid loudly opening great presents. That's what grace does. It transforms quite patrons of creation into blubbering, joy-filled maniacs. Grace makes me want to pump my fist into the sky and yell "Right on, God!" The impossibility of it all makes my hands fly when I start talking about it. Grace moves me".
I urge you, moms, dads, potential parents... READ THIS BOOK and embrace the chaos!
