Short Book Description: Here’s hope for every woman who worries she isn’t good enough or doesn’t do enough to merit God’s affection. With warm authenticity, Lisa Harper takes readers on a story-driven study of select Psalms, providing a clear picture of how God’s incomparable love transforms messy lives into gorgeous works of grace.

My thoughts: I’ve been reading the book of Psalms so I was pretty happy when I found out this  devotional book was taking us on author Lisa Harper’s personal journey through them.

I love the fact that this book is so different than most of the devotional books that I’ve read in the past.  I was taken on a ride of personal experiences and unashamed honesty in relating to the Word of God. I felt deeply moved, cracked several laughs, and nearly couldn’t put this book down as author Lisa Harper knows by the grace of God exactly how to keep her audience captivated by words on a page.

Through reading this book, I couldn’t help sharing with friends and family how  much I was enjoying it.  This great devotional book would be wonderful for personal use as well as group bible study.
