The best hostesses make you feel welcome in their home, a part of the family. Likewise, the best authors make you feel welcome as you visit them in the pages of their books.

Instead, with refreshing vulnerability and transparency, she shows us all that its okay to be imperfect in the hands of a God whose love for his own is perfect.
