A Perfect Mess

Just to show you all how much I need this book . . .

I had the title of this book in my weekly planner for two weeks, and yet the blog tour came and went with nary a post from me. I was on vacation, yet even after I got home I was living on vacation time since we had out-of-state friends visiting.

*sigh* What a mess! I can't even keep up with the lists I make for myself in my own planner!

So I began this book last night, and WOW. I really DO need it!

A Perfect Mess is a Bible study leading through several of the Psalms. Lisa Harper writes in a down-to-earth, approachable, humorous, and yet expert and knowledgeable way about the Bible. She is a woman who finds help and hope in God's word.

I love a gal like that!

OK, now for all the "where is this book and how do I get my hands on it?" information from the Publisher, Waterbrook (a division of Random House):

Caught up in the self-imposed pressure to do and be all the things they think a Christian woman ought to do and be, countless women are working desperately to convince everyone, including God, that they have it all together. Few have any idea that the Creator of the universe looks at them with delight even when they yell at the dog, drive a minivan littered with French fries, or think bad words about that rude clerk at the store.

A Perfect Mess offers hope to every woman who yearns for a vibrant relationship with God but worries she isn’t good enough or doesn’t do enough to merit His affection. With characteristic authenticity, speaker and author Lisa Harper shares poignant stories from her own imperfect life to showcase the real-life relevancy of the Bible in the lives of modern women.

As she guides readers on a story-driven journey through selected Psalms, they will be inspired to experience for themselves how God’s incomparable love transforms the messiness of life into a gorgeous work of grace..

Lisa Harper spoke at Women of Joy - she was FABULOUS and very relateable. (I just made up that word). Adding it to my to-read list!

Pattie, you really live near Fargo? That would be so great if you could come and see me.
