A Few Reads for the Fall

I'm ordering a couple of books today - real books with paper edges to dog-ear and wonderful quotes to underline.  I appreciate my Kindle, but fall just seems like time for a candle, a latte, and a friend-in-the-pages kind of book.

This book, Graceful (For Young Women): Letting Go of Your Try-Hard Life, because I try hard and I know young women who do, too.  And trying hard sometimes gets us to a place of frustration.

And this book by another Emily, Chasing Silhouettes: How to help a loved one battling an eating disorder, because she writes raw and honest and has great perspective, which is one of my favorite things.

One of the most redeeming things about Christ's love is that He takes what was shame to us, our fall from grace and our fallen nature, and uses them for His glory.  God alone redeems our messes, and sharing our story is praising His goodness.  These brave authors make way for praise.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples! - {Psa 105:1 NKJV}
