I absolutely love books like this. Books that really speak to you. Books that help you see that we are all flawed with a past and things we are afraid to tell people for fear of what they think. I love how she starts the book off very candidly with something that shook her to the core; and unplanned family pregnancy. I have been the pregnant out of wedlock person. Sometimes I feel like the more mercy you've been shown, the more you understand God's mercy and can show others.
I feel that this book did this in leaps and bounds. So often we do walk into church and people ask, "how are you?" without ever wanting to know the true answer. Meanwhile, the person is dying inside just waiting for someone to listen.
I know many times I have listened to other people's stories and thought, "Wow! I'm not the only one!" That is a freeing feeling to know that you do not struggle alone and God loves to shower us with His Mercy.
Absolutely wonderful book!
