I love how she makes it clear that it's OK to literally and figuratively be wobbly and clumsy in your faith, that you are loved regardless, and not ever expected to be perfect. May 31, Chanover55 rated it it was amazing. I have always loved Lisa Harper in person as well as her Bible studies. This book did not disappoint! With Lisa's trademark candor and humor she takes us throw those things we all experience, like the yearning for love or how to be more grateful. If you are not familiar with Lisa's work, spend some time with her as she steers you to stumble into God'S Grace.
Mar 21, Joy Schmidt rated it it was amazing. Lisa uses humor, stories from her life, and scripture to point us toward God's grace in our everyday lives. I read it with a group of women in a Bible study setting. The questions for each chapter got us thinking about how God shows us grace in numerous ways daily. Mar 16, Nicole rated it liked it.

I especially loved Chapter 2 about pantyhose being too "binding". I persona Before picking up this book I'd never heard of Lisa Harper. I personally HATE pantyhose! I was so surprised how easy it was for me to relate to her stories. Every single chapter I felt as though I could have said some of the same things about myself or I had an "aha!
Harper is honest about the times she has 'stumbled' and is therefore able to encourage others to keep pushing forward in their walk with God. Her honesty is like a gentle push to keep striving for a better relationship with Him. I appreciated that after each bible story, Lisa broke down the pieces of the story and applied it to life principles. I think that Stumbling Into Grace will be a book I refer back to and reread several times. I think the passages and the questions are very healing for the soul.

Stumbling Into Grace Quotes
One of the stories she share When I first saw the title of the book, Stumbling into Grace by Lisa Harper , I wondered if this would be a stuffy book about Grace One of the stories she shares is when she and one of her besties is in a hotel in Chattanooga and during the wee hours of the morning, the fire alarm goes off. Well, her dear friend is confined to a wheel chair, so she tells of enlisting an able bodied man to assist her in getting her friend, wheel chair and all down the staircase, since the elevator is out of commission during fires.
After all is said and done and they are safely on the ground, and the help walks away, her friend says, that was a different kind of accent, I could not quite place it and Lisa says, that's because he was drunk as a skunk! It wasn't an accent! She uses this lighthearted scenario to segue into the thought that the people God places around us can be amazing carriers of His grace. I would recommend this book for gift giving as well as using as a personal growth book.
