Grace is one of the best gifts you'll ever give . . . or receive.
This collection of endearing stories and uplifting quotes reminds us that the generosity of God's wonderful grace is all the motivation we need to become great-hearted givers ourselves. A trend-setting color pallet and contemporary design form the background for this unique collection of inspiration, advice, and humor from best-selling Women of Faith speakers and writers. Based on the 2008 WOF theme of grace, the writings are divided into chapters such as "Grace in the Daily Grind," and "Hearts Always Glimmer with Grace." This type of fun, feminine, faith-filled book makes a perfect gift for a broad audience.

"Freedom," says Thelma Wells, "comes when you are not dependent on any human being to design your life and your attitude for you; when you realize nobody is responsible for your happiness but you." She should know! Thelma overcame childhood abuse and poverty to become the happy, successful woman you see today. The first black woman to become an Assistant Vice President of a commercial bank, Thelma went on to organize an international speaking and consulting company (for which she received the Small Business Administration's Entrepreneur of the Year Award), earn a master's degree, and become a college professor. Last year Thelma was awarded an honorary doctorate - but she says we don't have to call her "Dr. Wells". Her new book, What These Girls Knew, takes a look at women in the Bible and what they have to tell us today. Thelma and husband George live in Texas, enjoying their children and grandchildren.
