ksnapierLima, OHAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Thoughtful and reflectiveAugust 19, 2015ksnapierLima, OHAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Beauty of Grace is an uplifting book. It is compiled of short reading by many leading ladies in Christian Ministry. Each of the entries can be read individually, in sections, or however the reader decides.
From the first, A Man in the Mirror, I felt like the readings each spoke to my heart, my soul and my relationship with God. They made me reflect on times in my past and on every-day-life today.
The sections include purpose, the big picture, surrender, trust, lessons learned, hope and encouragement and worship. In addition, Dawn Camp placed photos throughout the book that helps the reader worship God from an entirely different direction.
I was given this book by Revell in exchange for my honest review. Thank you so much and know that this book will be looked at many times in the future.

LYSZMinnesotaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Stories Full of GraceMarch 19, 2015LYSZMinnesotaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In her first published work, Dawn Camp assembles a mighty committee of amazing female writers. Of only the nine authors listed above, I have reviewed seven of the authors on the blog previously.
As I was reading through, I found myself becoming annoyed that all of their 'voices' sounded so similiar so 'Christian-blogese'. However, after awhile I found myself noticing their quiet differences and seeing their personalities shine through. This made me fall in love with some of the women even more than I already was.
There were SO many fantastic stories and words of encouragement, that I would hate for you to miss any of them. Please, check out the book for yourself and be encouraged, strengthened, healed, and loved.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Renee @ Eternity in our Hearts5 Stars Out Of 5Calls Me to ReceiveMarch 16, 2015Renee @ Eternity in our HeartsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is my new favorite! Dawn Camp has compiled inspiring stories from my favorite writers, and their words have encouraged me to pause and enjoy Grace as a receiver, not an achiever. I've been comforted and challenged, and I am grateful that The Beauty of Grace compels me to slow down and rest and then to offer a brave "yes" to Jesus, in simple but significant ways.
Alannie MarshallRaleigh, NCAge: 18-24Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5InspirationalMarch 10, 2015Alannie MarshallRaleigh, NCAge: 18-24Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I recently finished reading The Beauty of Grace by Dawn Camp. This is a lovely non-fiction book that I found to be very inspiring. I enjoyed reading a chapter with my devotions, as I found them to be especially beneficial that way. The stories were all very challenging and inspiring. I found the artwork to be very lovely, although I believe color photographs would have made a bigger impact on the reading experience. Also, this book claims to be by "today's most popular writers", although I wasn't familiar with any of them. And that is really saying something considering the amount of Christian fiction and nonfiction that I have read. Altogether an inspirational read.

Ever ache emotionally? Ever miss a deceased parent? Ever feel as though you are becoming unstrung? We all have those moments and more when we need a great big hug and there is seemingly no one around. Guess what? Jesus is around and He promised that His grace is sufficient for us. Dawn Camp addresses this issue with seven different parts: Part One: Purpose, Part Two: The Big Picture, Part Three: Surrender, Part Four: Trust, Part Five: Lessons Learned, Part Six: Hope and Encouragement and Part Seven: Worship. Dawn Camp shares all the stories concerning all the individuals in this book for one reason only and that is to let us know that Jesus can get us through our chaos just as easy as He got these authors through theirs. So let us take encouragement from these stories and go out and really receive His grace. I think this is a great resource for everyone and would be a great gift for friends and family.
