I just finished reading this amazing book. I did not want to put it down!!! Thankful for the gift of her perspective❤️
"Perspective is a gift. It can save lives, and it can keep us safe too. With perspective we can walk in confidence in an otherwise unsteady pathway. Without perspective, we can't drive or walk. We wouldn't be able to see properly- gauge size or distance-or experience the fullness of beauty".
"Life blooms radiant in the times I choose perspective over comparison"
Sincerely appreciate this book -- Mia McGranahan
Her fresh, relatable voice draws the reader in and allows us to become a full participant in her story: we cry when she cries; we mourn when she mourns; we laugh when she laughs. At times direct and poignant, at others lyrical and evocative, Kate’s words pour out like a balm upon those who have experienced pain, grief, and loss. And who among us hasn’t?
With insight and depth, Kate brings to life famous women from the Bible - like Mary, Bathsheba, and Sarah - and strips them of the glossy veneer we’ve put upon them to reveal their fears and foibles, effectively bridging the millennia that separates them from us. By illuminating their humanity, we see the power of God’s grace and sovereignty that transcends time and space, ready to be bestowed upon all who call out to Him.
Read this book for its compelling message of defiant joy, and then re-read it so that you can pick up those nuggets of truth and wisdom that you may have missed along the way.
