My goal this year is to read fifty books and most likely forty-nine of them will be fiction. But reading "Surprised by Grace" reminded me that that balance needs to change and I need to look more to biography and memoir. This was a rich and rewarding read, as engaging as any novel I might pick up this year. Elizabeth "Tib" Sherrill has written for "Guideposts" for over sixty years and her own story is as interesting as any of the people she has written about. I took a lot of notes as I read and there are many things I would like to remember in my daily life. I was touched by her thoughtfulness, candor and yes, humility. So many memoirs lack any sense of humility, but this one reminded me that our accomplishments are not ours alone. I highly recommend "Surprised by Grace."
Please note: I was given a copy of "Surprised by Grace" by the Litfuse Group for review purposes, but the opinions are all mine.
I've been running around for the last few days with my friend Sue, who was visiting from Florida. We had splendid weather and a lot of fun, but that didn't leave much blogging time. I'll be back later with a great giveaway and around all weekend catching up on some of our adventures.
As always, thanks for visiting and take good care. Happy reading and happy weekend wishes!
