With a refreshing transparency and honesty, the author shares about her own failures in a way which causes the reader to recognize themselves in the midst of her stories.
In her introduction, Ginger writes:
In reading some of my confessions, you may find me unlikable at times. But I will not sugarcoat the wickedness of my heart. When sin rears its head, there is nothing likable about it. It’s ugly, dark, shocking, and offensive, especially when we are willing to search our hearts and be fully honest about what is there. I hope that an honest, transparent revelation of what sin looks like will provoke deep thought and self-evaluation in the hearts of my readers.
And this is the very thing which makes Ginger likable. It is the very basis of a most honest book which reveals the truth that we all blow it but we are all loved and covered by the matchless grace of God.
With authenticity and a sense of humor, the author tackles the sins of criticism, pride, control, impatience, being miserly, selfishness and religious. These are all sins which can be easily hidden and which she exposes, in her own life. Ginger encourages us to examine ourselves so that we will experience true joy and freedom available to each of us as we dwell in the grace of God.
I found this book to be a quick and easy read with a style both engaging and provoking. The book does include a study guide making this an excellent resource for individual and group Bible Study.
