Craving Grace by Lisa Velthouse
In this book the author wants to understand God's grace and begins to search for it. She has ideas such as she has to earn God's grace or be good enough so that He will bless her. She tried making deals with God. Of course, in the end she understands she cannot earn it, that His grace is a gift... no strings attached. Velthouse writes of fasting, which is what we as Christians should be doing on a regular basis. This book is her story of how she searched for His grace and her understanding that came from it.
Lisa writes in an alternating time line style which was somewhat confusing, there is also quite a few pages talking about her dating life which I didn't feel added to the book's theme. I don't feel I can add anything else other than I was disappointed and didn't find the book insightful.
