About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

The Grace Effect review and giveaway!

**Lynn is the winner of The Grace Effect!**

   The Grace Effect, written by Larry Taunton, is an incredible account of his family's quest to adopt Sasha, a 10 year old Ukrainian orphan.  That in itself, will inspire you, anger you, make you search your heart and thrill you.  You will travel with them as they venture to the Ukraine experiencing corruption and frustration combined with love and faith.  Getting to know Sasha and hearing her story will touch your heart.
   The Grace Effect is also an intellectual journey to find grace in societies without Christianity.  Is it really so important to have grace?  It's extremely frightening when you contemplate the lack of it.  "Simply defined, the 'grace effect' is an observable phenomenon- that life is demonstrably better where authentic Christianity flourishes." The author makes many valid points by citing examples from different countries and events in history.
   Larry Taunton is an entertaining and educated story teller and I found myself engaged from the first page.   Through his family's journey I found myself wanting to do more, volunteer more, and make a difference!  I thoroughly enjoyed The Grace Effect and highly recommend it!

 The Grace Effect sells for $10.98 and can be purchased at amazon.com, barnes and noble and CBD.
