"STUMBLING INTO GRACE.....Confessions of a Sometimes Spiritually Clumsy Woman" by Lisa Harper

I loved this book! As the back of the cover says; "Part diary, part devotional, 'Stumbling Into Grace' weaves hilarious and poignant stories from Lisa's own life with intimate and transformational encounters from the life of Christ". 
 I really related to this book because we all stumble in our spiritual lives and that is okay because God picks us back up, dusts us off and forgives us.  I like how she weaves real life experiences that she has had with passages in the bible. Lisa is very funny, she had me laughing in one chapter and crying in the next.
I really like the names of some of the chapters, such as: "Ewe Scared?";  "No Fangs Allowed"; "The Bride Who Tripped Down The Aisle"; and "Carrying Home A Giant" to name just a few!
I also like how the book is laid out, there are 15 chapters, and each chapter is perfect to turn into a daily or weekly devotion. Also, at the end of each chapter there are "Personal Reflection" and "Group Discussion Questions".
There was only one thing I did not like about this book and that was that she used 6 different versions of the Bible. I would have liked to see just one version used! But other then that I liked this book and  
it was really helpful to me.  I am very glad I read it and I can't wait to read one of her other books.
