book giveaway - christ in the chaos

giveaway closed
one month from now our family will be on the road, heading toward our new adventure. in the midst of all the crazy that comes with preparing to move across country, i'm trying to seek peace and rest in the lord. sadly, i'm not doing a very good job. so grateful for grace and new mercies daily. i'm so encouraged though, because the best thing i did last week was make time to read this little book:


"moms: 
stop comparing yourself to others.
stop striving to meet false expectations.
stop thinking your performance dictates your worth.
look to the gospel.
find rest, joy, sufficiency, identity and motivation."

seeing those words on the back cover was freedom. what a humbling reminder! this book was for me.
now, christ in the chaos: how the gospel changes motherhood is not only for mamas. i truly think the liberating, encouraging chapters are for anyone. we all need to be looking to the gospel rather than our own strength and what we can or can't accomplish. the truth kimm crandall so honestly shared refreshed me. she's reminded me that yes, i'll fail. all the time. and i can run to christ and rest in his never ending grace. every. single. time. hallelujah! at the end of the little chapters there are some awesome "getting real" questions to encourage reflection and draw you closer to freedom in christ. i have a renewed desire to look to jesus, in all things, especially the chaos that is my life! 

from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. john 1:16 esv

like i said, things are incredibly chaoitc for us right now, so i get it. you may not think you have time to read a book. make time for this one! it's super short and life-giving. and lucky you, kimm has graciously offered a giveaway for y'all! you can enter to win a copy for yourself!
