Book Description and Cover:
Life is messy. And Christians are not exempt. Unfortunately, this is not the message we tend to hear. We’re told to be moral, look good, and set a positive example. After all, as some people may tell us, we’re the only Jesus some people see–so we better make him look good. That’s a heavy burden. And so we work feverishly to hide our messes from each other and from God for fear of judgment . . . all the while wondering how we can ever be loved.
But Christianity is not about being less of a mess. It’s about admitting that we need to be saved from trying to clean ourselves up. In Beloved Mess, author and blogger Kimm Crandall frees Christians to live with the assurance that God loves us right here, right now. He’s not waiting for us to clean up our act before we’re worthy to come to him. He wants us to stop trying to fix the mess so that we can allow him to wash it away for us.
I am a mess. Truth is, so are you. The beautiful truth is that God calls us His beloved, in spite of our messes. God’s grace is greater than all of our sins. He freely gives His forgiveness to all who ask! Beloved Mess is a short, 149 page, book. It will sink you in and you will be hooked. I was not able to stop reading until I was finished! I love how the author is so real. She puts herself out there for us to see. She opens up in an intimate way so we can better understand that no one has it all together. That we are all in need of God’s grace. This is a wonderful book, and has found me in a season of life where I so desperately needed to hear this message.
I highly recommend this wonderful book to you all! I give this book a 5/5 stars. You can purchase your copy on Amazon on June 21st, or preorder now!
