Page by page, she conveys a simple, powerful message of encouragement, showing women how to accept the gift of divine forgiveness, step by gentle step, and release lingering doubts, fears, and regrets.
The grace-filled life.
It begins with an embrace.
Wherever you are spiritually, whatever you have been through emotionally, you are already enfolded in the arms of One who believes in you, supports you, treasures you.
He is waiting for you to embrace him in return. To accept the gift he’s offering you. To listen for the whispered words you’ve longed a lifetime to hear:
You are loved. All is forgiven.
“A heartfelt study of God’s grace, written in a warm, conversational style by a woman who clearly grasps our deep need to shrug off the binding ‘coat of guilt’ and experience freedom in Christ.
“The author also incorporates pleas for help, hard-won insights, and glimpses of hope sent in by readers. The content becomes a tender dialogue grappling with issues of doubt, faith, truth, sin, forgiveness, repentance, and grace. Beautifully accompanied with compelling photographs, the text’s open design pulls the reader in, lending itself to devotional use. Thought-provoking questions aid readers in applying the book’s messages. The author’s writing style and vulnerability combine to create a volume sure to reach any woman, no matter her walk in life.”

Here’s what readers are saying…
“Embrace Grace came at such a good time for me. I am struggling with some unfortunate past family issues that are rearing their ugly head. It was as if I was sitting with you, pouring out my heart. You seemed to answer me before I even spoke. Wonderful book, life changing.”
Tracy from Texas
“I read Embrace Grace in one sitting. I felt like my heart was being exposed. For the first time in my life I realized what it was like to feel the embrace of God.”
Glenda from Tennessee
“As I read Embrace Grace, I can hear your voice lovingly encouraging me. I can hear your laughter and joy and sadness as you share your heart with me. I feel that you are an old friend encouraging me in my walk with our Lord. Thank you for being such a magnificent servant of God. You remind me once again that God wants me, regardless of who I was.”
Lisa from Michigan
“Embrace Grace has really opened my eyes to things that I’ve been trying not to think about. God is giving me a gentle reminder that these things need to be addressed and that he loves me no matter what. Thank you so much for writing this book. It has made me appreciate my faith in God and given me a spiritual awakening.”
Erin from Pennsylvania
“I just finished reading Embrace Grace and feel a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I don’t need to forgive myself, I just need to accept that God has forgiven me and will never bring up my past sins again. I was always ‘trying’ to be better, better, better, instead of accepting God’s grace. He really loves me just as I am!”
Ann from Florida
“I feel you wrote Embrace Grace just for me. My ‘secret sins’ have been coming out (it’s like somebody got inside my head) and I’m feeling forgiven as my guilt is beginning to go away.”
Dolores from Wisconsin
“Your honesty about your past is touching. So often women feel like they have to pretend to be perfect, like nothing is ever wrong. You helped me see that no one is perfect and in fact many women feel just like I do — what a gift! You helped me see that it isn’t about what I feel, it’s about what God says to be true!”
Robin from Arizona
“Reading Embrace Grace was like listening to someone who knew me and loved me. Thank you for reaching out to hurting people with such kindness and gentleness. The Good News should be good news. It is so healing to learn about and take in God’s grace.”
Anne from Ohio
“I am convinced that you wrote Embrace Grace only for me. I am still struggling with the whole forgiveness, unconditional love thing. Thank you for touching my life.”
Mary from Kentucky
“I bought Embrace Grace thinking maybe it would give me the peace in my life I’m looking for. I can’t put the book down. I’m beginning to see that there may even be hope for me.”
Yvonne from British Columbia
“You really helped me see the unconditional love God has for me. I never imagined that I could feel this free and loved. You were a part of me becoming a new woman. The bad girl is gone, and the forgiven girl is here!”
Becky from Kentucky
