Life with Grace serves to illustrate how our relationship with God is a mirror image of the parent-child relationship in its' ideal form. Not “just for moms” or intended as a parenting tool, its purpose is to help each of us embrace God as our extravagantly loving, fiercely protective, epically heroic, gently admonishing, and generously giving Father.
See God in Everyday Moments
