In The Unmistakable Touch of Grace, bestselling author Cheryl Richardson (Take Time for Your Life and Life Makeovers) moves away from advice about tangible topics, and shares with readers her twenty-year journey of discovery about how the benevolent energy of the Universe, which she calls "the unmistakable grace" works to shape our lives and guide us towards our ultimate spiritual destiny. According to Richardson, there is a Higher Power that has our best interest at heart and uses grace to guide us to better understand the Divine Plan. The goal of this book is to help readers become more aware of how grace touches their lives, and to teach them to be able to better recognize the touch of grace and to surrender to it so that "the right doors will open to support you in fulfilling tour lifes purpose."
There are no coincidences, Richardson writes. Everything and everyone we experience comes into our lives for a reason and are blessings in disguise." Understanding those reasons and viewing life from a spiritual perspective is at the heart of her message. In addition to revealing personal examples from her own life, Richardson shares many other stories to reveal how grace can make dramatic, positive differences in our lives once it is perceived and surrendered to. To aid the reader in those steps, Richardson provides a wealth of exercises at the end of each chapter. She calls such exercises experiments, and encourages readers to perform them with others so that everyone involved can witness their dramatic effects on each other. She also provides additional resources that readers can use to further their self-discovery.
With The Unmistakable Touch of Grace, writing in a style that is both warm and informative, Richardson joins the ranks of other inspirational authors such as Wayne Dyer and Eckhart Tolle, with a work that is both provocative and empowering, and a very useful resource for anyone who desires to increase their awareness of the seeds of miracles contained in everyday experiences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Author
Twenty years ago, I made a decision to wake up and alter the direction of my life. This set in motion a series of events that proved to me there are no coincidences. Every event we experience and every person we meet has been put in our path for a reason. When we awaken to this fundamental truth, we begin to understand that a benevolent force of energy is available to guide and direct our lives. I call this energy the unmistakable touch of grace.
This book tells the story of how grace has transformed my life as well as the lives of others. While some stories may seem unbelievable, all of them are true. As you follow the journey, you'll start to see the influence of grace in your life, too. And, once you've finished, the way you view your life (and the people in it) will be changed forever. Many blessings, Cheryl --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I love this book and bought it for a friend too.
It will help calm you and make you focused if you are going through a tough time. It will answer the 'why's' you have. When you read it and do the experiments, it helps you grow self aware and more calm about yourself.
Awesome book. Everyone should really read this. I think if everyone did this world would be a happier and more content place.
Overall recommendation: Skip this one.
Cheryl Richardson's latest book, "The Unmistakable Touch of Grace" is different from her other books in many ways. It is extremely personal; she says that she has shared personal stories from her life more in workshops than in her books in the past. This one is very honest and transparent---and all about grace.
I think that she wrote this book to wake the reader up to the presence of grace in all of our lives---grace from a Higher Power. She manages to write the book outside of religious traditions, so that whatever your religious beliefs, I think you will find that the concepts can be easily applied without offending. Cheryl's own spiritual path as an adult began with Al-Anon, and continued through different spiritual groups and orientations, some of them Eastern. I found that her experiences in Al-Anon were representative of spiritual awakening in general, no matter where it happens. She found much richness in various Eastern groups, but again, the concepts are universal. It seems that she takes great pains to make the book open and accepting for people of all or even no faith.
I think that a person who believed in any Higher Power would find much about grace, mindfulness, silence, forgiveness, etc. to apply to their life. If you are a strong believer of any faith at all it will strengthen your faith. Also, though, if you are a reader who has no faith in any Higher Power whatsoever, I can imagine that you would still appreciate the author's journey as good food for thought.
Throughout the book there are very short and simple exercises (mostly ponderings on thoughts and questions) to enable the reader to have an encounter on some level with grace. I think that's the best part of the book---that it delivers to the reader a profound experience of a sometimes illusive spiritual concept. This is not just a book ABOUT grace. When you finish the book, you will have EXPERIENCED grace. For this reason, I think the book really delivers.
When I first ordered it from Amazon, I was a little disappointed in the price for the much lower quality paper and printing (although it is a hardback book, the paper inside is mass market paper). However, after I read it, I know I got my money's worth. I loved the book, loved feeling like I am safe and cherished in the Universe no matter what things might happen to me (even painful things and suffering), and am very glad I read it. I can't imagine anyone else not feeling the same way...
"...Touch of Grace" is a very personal, easy to follow book. Common sense is not usually a phrase one applies to a book that is probably categorized as "spiritual" or "metaphysical" but this book just makes a lot of sense, and if one is truly open to looking at how grace has touched their lives and willing to be aware, this book will be a great help along the way...to...peace and serenity, joy, etc., etc.
Grace is working for us and with us so clear. It also gives guidelines on how to easily get in the flow of the harmony of life with Grace and change direction as we sometimes need to do. Helpful tips for living as a full expression of who you really are.
An easy read and good processes and references for further growth. I highly recommend it even if you feel 'new' to the concepts of Grace and effortless living. It will make sense to all.
