Finding Grace is the powerful, often humorous, and deeply moving story of one woman's journey of broken dreams. It is the story of how a painful legacy of the past is confronted and met with peace. This book is for anyone who has struggled to understand why our desires-even the simplest ones-are sometimes denied or who has questioned where God is when we need Him most. This story is about one woman's unlikely road to motherhood. Finally, it's a book about the "undeserved gift which is life itself." It's the story of "Finding Grace." Donna VanLiere has entertained millions with her inspirational stories.

    " I enjoyed this book. It was truly honest, and it was inspiring without being sappy. This is a quick read and a great pick-me-up for those times when we need to be reminded that it's not all about us and our problems, and that grace is all around us. We often just don't notice it. "

    " touching, thoughtful ideas about overcoming challenges in the "deserts" of life...things that happen beyond our control outside of the Plan we had for ourselves...I related to this, as the last 5 years in particular have been an adventure in dealing peacefully with things we didn't plan on.
