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.
