Amazed by Grace by Sheri Dew, LDS Blog Tour

Book Summary:

What is grace? What difference can grace make in our lives? How does the Savior make His power available to us? And what must we do to gain access to that power?
In Amazed by Grace, Sheri Dew discusses each of those important questions, exploring a topic that she describes as being central to the Atonement of Jesus Christ. "The most compelling, most life-changing message of all time," she writes, "is that Jesus Christ has already triumphed over sin, death, hell, temptation, and every kind of misery."
As we come to more fully understand the majestic doctrine of grace, our faith will increase. We will see how the Savior keeps His promise to make weak things strong. And we will believe the truth that "His Atonement makes available all of the power, peace, light, and strength that we need to deal with life's challenges."

My Review:

Small yet very powerful, I finished this book in less than an hour, yet it left me with so many wonderful things to ponder. I cannot wait to pull out a highlighter and read it all over again. It uplifted me, filled me with hope and inspired me to do and become better! I finished this book with a renewed commitment to really know my Savior and use the power of his Atonement and grace in my life. There are far too many amazing quotes to share, so just get a copy of this book and read it for yourself. Like me, I am sure you will want to read it again and again! I want to share at least one quote, "...grace is divine power than enables us to handle things we can't figure out, can't do, can't overcome, or can't manage on our own." I love that this book embodies hope and that we do not have to do things on our own, there is divine help for us!

You can pick up your own copy via Deseret Book.

Happy Reading!!!
