Blog Tour - Amazed by Grace

About the book: 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: This book is beautiful. I loved the way it's put together, it's really a gift book. The book is small, it's well written and each page is beautiful. I loved the way that there are not as many words on a page as you would expect, it seemed to give the words that were there more meaning. I loved that in each chapter there are several full page pictures with inspirational quotes. This book is similar to the talk that Sheri Dew gave at Time Out for Women last fall, and I loved that I can have it to remember what she said that day. I took notes, but I know there was no way I could have ever written everything down. Now I can re-read this book and remember what I felt and what the Spirit taught me that day about grace. 

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
