Glimpses of Grace

Glimpses of Grace
Treasuring the gospel in your home
Gloria Furman

Every mom faces the challenge of balancing her home, work, and relationship with God. Sometimes God and His grace can appear to be lost in the shuffle of life. Where is God when we are waking up in the middle of the night with a child or facing loads of laundry? Where is God when the plumbing needs to be fixed or the refrigerator is completely empty? The author takes her life experiences and writes about how she found grace in her home to encourage and uplift the every day mom.

The author's style of writing is simple and straightforward. It feels like the reader is sitting at the author's kitchen table amidst the dirty dishes and leftover breakfast sharing a cup of coffee while discussing grace. The chapters include topics about friends, contentment, pain, and grace. Sprinkled throughout are stories or antidotes from the author's life to illustrate the points she is trying to make.
It's a good book for any mother struggling with the overwhelming parts of parenting and housework.

I received this book free of charge from Crossway in exchange for my honest review.
