It’s time for What We’re Reading Wednesday, occasionally hosted by Jessica over at Housewifespice. Even if she’s not hosting right now, go on over there and give her blog a cuddle.
This week it’s all about saying, “YES!”
In The Grace of Yes: Eight Virtues for Generous Living, Lisa Hendey gives us a firm but gentle walk down a path out of the fear and selfishness that tends to be the natural human state into a way of living that is made larger and more free by all the ways we can give, and in giving see ourselves as the gifts we are. Each chapter includes a down-to-earth, pointed-to-heaven reflection from Lisa, a set of thought-provoking questions on the virtue being discussed, and prayer. Few writers have the gift of being able to give us a kick in the pants without it hurting like the dickens. Lisa Hendey is one of those who has this gift. If you’d like such a kick in the pants and have others getting kicked along with you (that sounds much worse than it sounded in my head), I also encourage you to participate in the CatholicMom.com Grace of Yes book club going on right now. Say “yes” to The Grace of Yes!
Erin, you are so very kind to support my book in this way. As a fellow writer, your take on the book is of great interest to me. Thanks for believing in this project and for helping to spread the word!
Lisa, thanks for writing a wonderful book! You made the reviewing part easy! Blessings on you & your ministry as you continue your generosity with all God’s kids.
