I began reading this book a few weeks ago and immediately knew it was written for me. You might think this book is written for girls who want to be good, or more godly, but truly it's written for Christian girls who expect their lives to appear perfect, to always have a smile on on their face, and to answer the age old question of "How are you?" with the classic answer, "fine", even if life anything but fine. I love the author's writing style so much that I quickly checked out her blog, Chatting at the Sky (and promptly put a link to the right). Her writing is the perfect balance of eloquent and to the point. I am convinced that if we lived close we would be friends...I don't know her, but I love her already. She's a real girl who struggles with being a mom, wife, friend, blogger, and photographer, but makes a point to find joy in all of it.
This summer she, Emily Freeman, the author, is hosting a book club for Grace for the Good Girl. I'm only a few chapters into the book so I'm jumping on board. I love the idea of reading this book and discussing it with other "good girls" around the country. Here's the link to the introduction of the book study. If you're still wondering if this book is for you go read her run down of the book and why she wrote it. I find her to be witty and authentic. Then if you sign up for the book club let me know by leaving me a comment. I'd love to know if you too will be trying to let go of your try hard life!! The reading schedule and all the details on on the link above!
