Buy yourself a copy, start a group study—even start an online study. You won’t be sorry, and you will be Grinning—with Grace!
"Grin With Grace" is a unique concept. We hear a lot and read a lot about grace, but when's the last time you heard grace combined with grinning? That alone is enough to convince me to take a peek. But the hearty meat inside the pages convince me this is a study desperately needed by today's church.
Kathy includes so many wonderful bit and bobs in this study: real life stories, lots of Bible verses and passages, actual life application that is real and tangible, as well as a challenge with each chapter of the book.
How do I know Kathy uses real, everyday life in her book? I've found myself in nearly every single situation she describes, and more often than not, grinning with grace was not my first response. But, I'm learning how to grin and how to do it with an abundance of grace from my Father.
My thanks to Kathy for not only her grace but her study book in exchange for a honest (albeit late) review. I love this study...every thing about it is appealing and packs a tender punch. I'm loaning my copy to our women's ministry leader to hopefully persuade her this should be our next study!
"Grin with Grace" is highly recommended,
Kathy is well versed in the suffering department. From health issues to the nitty gritty of living life, she knows the need for a dose of joy. Her goal is to help all of us who feel so far from the goal. Is it a lofty goal? I don’t think so, because the pursuit of wisdom brings us closer to the One who gives it freely to those who ask. And that’s a good place to be.
Grin With Grace is sectioned off into humorous real-life stories, Bible study, life-application steps, turning faith into ministry and challenging scenarios to consider. The sections invite journaling and that reflection invites action. Never does she leave us to sit on our discoveries, but pushes us to share them with others. Our women’s group found the conversation starters helpful and the personal approach to faith, endearing. We used the material as a springboard toward more transparency in our faith and encouragement of each other. The last chapter, especially, created an opportunity to voice our support through benediction, or blessing.
One of the ways Kathy teaches us about the dependability of Grace, is to cause us to look at the effects of our promises. Do we say what we mean, and mean what we say? She calls us to a higher accountability as we mirror the character of God. And such is the tough love found throughout the book; spoken with compassion, yet straight and to the point. She reminds us to seek the One who is enough, so that we won’t try to be sufficient in our own resources. And that is the power in Grin With Grace; truth cushioned with kindness and love.
Make time for this study on grace. It will open your worldview to the characteristics of a grace-filled life, and equip you to look for the touches of God in grace-filled moments!
