Surprised By Grace Is a Must-Read Book! One Of the Best I have Read In a Long Time!

Surprised By Grace

Like many women, I love a love story. Lots of the book I read carry a love story theme through them and I enjoy those, but nothing is better than a "true" love story! There's just something about them. They really tug on your heart and remind you how God works in amazing ways. But it is not just the love story between two people, it's also the love story between people and God.

In the book Surprised By Grace, you get a very close look at the life of Elizabeth Sherrill. She is an amazing woman and I was thrilled to read this book. I felt like I was reading her personal diary, a very intimate and wonderful account of her life. More importantly it shows how one woman can impact so many people by the little things she does. Elizabeth is so open and her candor is very apparent. It's a book I would recommend to any one!

About the Book:

Renowned writer Elizabeth “Tib” Sherrill shares her own faith journey at last! Embrace this page-turner and see God’s work in your life every day. 

Tib has written for Guideposts magazine for over sixty years, contributed to Daily Guideposts for over twenty-five, and coauthored the best-selling, inspirational adventures of all time with her husband, John, including: The Hiding Place, The Cross and the Switchblade, and God’s Smuggler. Yet, Tib’s most powerful story ever is this beautifully written, exhilarating memoir.

In it, you’ll discover how God’s love transformed her life from one of great struggle to one with a clear direction and find inspiration, hope and strength for your own journey.
