At first, I wasn’t interested in reading this book. Then I found a review of it on another blog that was saying how the blogger had seen the author at the Woman of Faith event and that she was hilarious, so I decided to check it out!
The book is definitely funny and I love her writing style. I especially love the story she told about slipping on the cement floor at the car dealership. I could absolutely picture the predicament she was in and I couldn’t help but laugh out loud.
At the end of each chapter, she relates the story to Jesus and then has a prayer of “Living the Light of His Story”. After that, there are reflection and/or group discussion questions which I always like because even though I may not feel like I am relating to a particular chapter, these questions can often help me see things in a different way that do relate to my life. There is also a prompt for a personal journal entry at the end of each chapter as well.
Lisa is going to be one of the guests at the Women of Faith conference I am attending in November and I am looking forward to it even more now!
Humorous yet poignant stories from Lisa’s life help readers relate to spiritual truths found in the life and ministry of Christ.
Stumbling Into Grace is the diary-devotional of one woman’s honest, ongoing, bumbling journey of faith and how she finds encouragement through a deeper understanding of Christ’s time on earth. Within each chapter she alternates her often humorous memoir with stirring portraits of Jesus and his own encounters as recorded in the New Testament.
Both intimately relevant and refreshingly inspirational, this book will help readers to jettison the theological misconceptions, guilt, shame, and hypocrisy they struggle with, exchanging them for a vibrant, passionate relationship with Christ that results in a more abundant, joyful life.
