Grace for the good girl

Grace for the Good Girl, Emily P. Freeman, 978-0-8007-1984-5

I surprisingly found myself really enjoying this book! I get weary of a lot of the self-help books out there that seem to be more about excusing lifestyles/behaviors than truly helping someone live a grace filled and glorifying life in God. This book however was filled with some great insight and practical and useful ways to apply Biblical principles to your life.
I think as women we seem to fall into that "Proverbs 31" mentality that we need to do it all in order to be the kind of women that God wants. (And I don't fit into that mold, lol).  Freeman essentally gives scripture and insight and releases women from this trap of not only trying to keep everything together but also doing it with a bright smile and sunny disposition. We're given the right to know that we don't have to have everything together, it's ok if we're a bit of a mess (or even a large mess, lol). We have grace and we have a God who loves us no matter where we are in our lives!
I loved this book and will be recommending it to our ladies group and pretty much any woman I meet, it was that good!!
