Review: A Work in Progress by Kristin Armstrong


About the Book: When Kristin Armstrong was in the pit of her divorce, she eagerly read every spiritual book and devotional she could get her hands on out of a hunger to connect with someone who knew exactly what she was going through and how she felt. Now, at a time when society offers so many conflicting messages about what it means to be a woman, Kristin invites readers to discover grace as a way of life.
Using real-life anecdotes, biblical wisdom, and insight born of hard experience, Kristin teaches women the twelve traits of grace, inviting reflection and interaction. Warm, engaging, and practical, WORK IN PROGRESS examines what God has to say about being His kind of woman in the twenty-first century.

My Review: This is a very engaging well-written book. While I wouldn't say it broke new ground, there is always value in reading about other women's experiences living a life for God. Kristin does a fantastic job of sharing real life stories..both her own and her friends as she shares about some of the different traits she feels a woman of grace has.

This kind of book is like a shot of encouragement to the soul, and can be easily read as a chapter a day, alongside your Bible reading. Kristin weaves well-loved Scripture in with her points.

Recommended for Christian women looking for an edifying read.
