She defines waiting in a way that I wasn't expecting and then makes a case for all of us that are living lives with unrealized expectations, plans, goals and dreams to stop waiting. By the time I was halfway through, I could not wait to see where she was going with her train of thought.
Grace did not disappoint. She tells story after story that make our hearts beat wildly for the kind of life we truly want to live. One where we climb to the mountaintops looking for, and find, the amazing life we know is out there. She reminds us that it is possible.
I wanted to highlight all the good quotes, but realized I would have to stop too often, and my eyes wanted to read the next page instead. My eyes won, mostly because this is the kind of book that is intended to be given as a gift and once I started reading, I thought of several people that I wanted to gift my copy to.
A beautiful book inside and out. The ribbon place marker was a nice touch.
I was provided with a copy of this book by the publisher in return for my honest review.
I really didn't care for the section of the book where the author describes her experience with people of the Himalayas, saying you could almost "see their pupils turn into dollar signs" and "they were sharing their tent with an idol," and "darkness enveloped them." Seriously, the author is a guest in their home, eating their food, and judging them. It seems that darkness enveloped the author in that moment, not the people who opened their home to her. It really left a sour taste in my mouth, and I'm not even sure how that got past the editor.
I wanted to like this book, and I did for the most part, but man did I cringe in certain areas.
Grace does this by intertwining multiple personal experiences and Bible stories. She is a skilled author and regularly draws you into the story and paints amazing scenes from all around the world. So yes, she is bringing a powerful message, but in a way that entertains and captivates your attention. There is no lecturing, but rather power truth in the stories she shares over a cup of warm tea. (or lemonade, because you know, it's summer)
