Be Brave Saturday: Jump Scared (from Edie Wadsworth's All The Pretty Things)


Edie Wadsworth's blog, Life in Grace, is one I have read for years. I started reading it first for the beautiful photos of Edie's house and her great recipes. I continue to read it, though, because of her heart and her beautiful writing. I am beyond privileged to get to be a part of her book launch team for her memoir, "All The Pretty Things". The stories of her poor Appalachian family, her relationship with her alcoholic father and the redemption found in the midst of it is heartbreaking and glory-filled. Edie is a beautiful soul and has shared her story so that others can find healing and so that still others will feel the freedom to share their own story.
It is available now for pre-order at Amazon.  If you order it now, go to http://alltheprettythingsbook.com/ and sign up for the pre-order bonuses available.
This is not an easy read, but I think it's an important read. My heart ached for her while I read her story, but her life glows with forgiveness and grace and that's the most important part of her story.

Whatever has been holding you back from sharing your story or living the life you've always wanted to live, let go of it.  Let's all take a page from Edie's new book and  Jump Scared.
