Glimpses of Grace: Simply Reading Project - week 1

I just recently joined in a little reading club of sorts, with a few other photographers.  The mission is to read through the book Glimpses of Grace: Treasuring the Gospel in Your Home  and create or capture a photo that resonates with you based on the chosen quote of the week.  

Week 1:

"The opportunity for growth in holiness lies right in front of your face—sitting in the tepid dishwasher, festering in the laundry basket, at your crowded dinner table, and under the car seat where your toddler stashed her leftover granola bar for later. Sure, fuzzy mold might be growing there, but in these moments it is also where growth in holiness happens.'"  - Gloria Furman, Chapter 1, Glimpses of Grace

 

At the end of chapter one, I'd moved through a serious of emotions and reactions, to the words I was reading, as it began to penetrate my heart and peel back the layers, as God drew me in and reminded me of the truth that in Christ alone, is my strength and joy and peace.  I am looking forward to what God has for me hidden in these pages, uncomfortable as it may be.  I'd love for you to join me in reading through this wonderful book and also check back next week for a glimpse of the grace and growth that's unfolding in my home.
