The summer heat is making me wish this busy mum could have some downtime long enough to curl up with a good book while drinking a tall glass of the most refreshing green mango shake. Add a  hammock, the vast blue sky and the shore into the mix and it will be perfect. But we have yet to hit the beach and I hope we do so before the new school year starts. Even when school is out, I still have tons of work to do at home so reading for pleasure is taking the backseat. Hopefully, I could squeeze in hours of reading next month while the little man is in school.

I have only about a couple of weeks before the new school year opens and it is the perfect time to create my Reading list and I am excited to add these 2 new titles from LifeBooks onto my list:

This book is penned by Steve McVey and here is a short synopsis:

Do you long to experience the grace of God?

Steve McVey, author of the bestselling book Grace Walk (over 250,000 sold), invites you to start each day by letting God remind you of His love and care for you. Experience all of the grace God has to offer you–refreshment, joy, and forgiveness–in these quiet moments alone.

As you read, you will learn that God’s grace isn’t something you read about–it’s a way of life. It’s not about struggling to be perfect. It’s about letting Him love you and work through you and in you to accomplish more for Him than you ever could on your own. If you find yourself trying to earn God’s grace, these devotions will help you understand what Christ has already accomplished for you and what He longs to do in you today.
