Happy November to you!!
As I shared in my last post, Carol Kent and her Speak Up seminars have had a huge impact in my life. Carol is such a treasure in the Kingdom!!
What a blessing to be able to share her latest book, "Between A Rock and A Grace Place" with you! If you haven't read it yet, trust me...you will LOVE it! :)
When I was first asked to review Carol's latest book, I was pretty confident I would enjoy it. (I've not yet read a book of Carol's that I didn't enjoy ~ in fact, would you know that the VERY FIRST book I bought as a Christian was her book, "Becoming A Women of Influence". I still reference it today!).
I was not prepared, however, to NOT BE ABLE TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN! What an amazing work! My husband John and I sat together on the couch immovable as we read the book together. In fact, I was immediately drawn to share this quick note on-line....
"What an amazing, tear-jerking, faith-building, authentic, hope-filled book Carol has written! I just received the book today, and my husband and I sat on the couch this evening reading it together. I needed tissues before we even arrived at Chapter 1, and the Nurse Betty story almost brought out my "ugly cry" (the power of a mother's prayer!!...). Thank you, Carol, for sharing your story with such honesty and transparency. What a huge blessing! I can't wait to read more! :) "
Here's a brief summary of the Between A Rock and A Grace Place....
How Do You Find Grace in the Midst of Heartbreak??
Between A Rock and A Grace Place is a riveting journey of facing impossible obstacles and discovering the last thing ever expereinced - the sweet spot of grace. With openness, hope, restored joy, and humor, Carol Kent helps readers find God's "grace places" in the middle of their worst moments.
And here's Carol sharing more of her journey and an overview of the book. (This is less than 3 minutes long, and you'll be so glad you watched it! The Kent Family is such a powerful reflection of God's Glory!!).....
This is the perfect book to share with anyone who is going through a "tight spot" in life. I recently gave a copy to a dear friend who is on pregnant and on bed rest with baby # 4. I also gave a copy to my dear friend Brenda, after the tragic loss of her sister and mom.
And now, dear bloggy friend, I would love, love, love to share this book with you!!

I'll close with these powerful words shared by Carol (from 1 Peter 4).
"Be encouraged with these words:
“Friends when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job. Instead, be glad that you are in the very thick of what Christ experienced. This is a spiritual refining process, with glory just around the corner.” 1 Peter 4:12-13 (MSG)
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*. Have a wonderful, grace-filled, day!!
