Review: Beloved Mess
`Beloved Mess` is a Christian Living/Spiritual Growth book written by author Kimm Crandall. She wrote this book to her husband, Justin, who is her best friend. I like the following quote, found in the Forward, written by Elyse Fitzpatrick (I have reworded it some), I identify myself as a desperate sinner, loved by a great and kind Savior.
This book is for women who are trying to live up to everyone's expectations of what being a Christian is like, but seem to keep failing everyone's expectations. In actuality we don't need to live up to anyone's expectations. This book will speak into your mess and how to find joy through Jesus.
`Beloved Mess` held my attention as I want to be assured that no matter what, my Savior loves me and there is grace upon grace for me, too. I pondered the fact that Christ has forgiven me and He loves me. Even if I were the only person on earth He would still die for me.
Kimm Crandall begins her book by sharing her messes so the reader will know all humans sin, but there is grace for all our sins. Jesus took everyone's sin, put them on Himself, and gave us grace.
