Stumbling Into Grace

Each chapter of Stumbling Into Grace has its own topic. Lisa talks about fear, strongholds, food, forgiveness, healing, community, honesty and more. Within each chapter are examples and stories from Lisa's own life, as well as a biblical reference - sometimes paraphrased by Lisa, and these are the best, as she brings Bible verses to life in modern times in ways that might surprise you. Included in each chapter is a closing prayer, questions for group discussion or personal reflection and a lead-in question for writing in your personal journal. Harper utilizes personal stories and a healthy dose of good humor to share experiences that are common to all of us and spiritual insights that will challenge and inspire you. This book is great as a solo devotional or possibly in a small group setting.The books was a pretty easy read! Miss Lisa is quite hilarious (and ever-so-slightly crude at times) but her lover for her Savior is beautiful. Each chapter starts off with a story, the middle includes a Bible passage, and the end explains the passage and shows how it can be applied to our lives today.A very good book if you are looking for something to help you get back on track in your walk with God!
