Among our greatest fears is the dread of what others would think of us "if they only knew" - the parts of our past we hope to forget, the parts of our present we work to conceal. Yet the part we actually do the best job of hiding is not the unsightly debris of our own mess, but rather the stunning beauty of God's grace. The fear that demands we protect this false image at all costs leads us to unwittingly declare a false gospel at every turn. Jamie Ivey finally grew tired of doing that, tired of being too ashamed and insecure to let others see the full extent of what God was capable of doing with our unworthiness. So she quit hiding.

This book touched my soul with real spiritual truths from a real momma. So, so loved the transparency Jamie so willing laid out there for all of us to see and bathe in. She so beautifully teaches of God’s love and redemptive work to all who are willing to approach His mighty throne of grace. Jamie’s the kind of woman we all need as a best friend. I can see this book filled with so many highlighted sentences, paragraphs, pages sitting on my nightstand forever. After a long day it will be one thing I turn to to remember who I am. Such a sweet, sweet gift from above.
