Rave Reviews for An Anointed Mess: Discovering the Daily Adventure of Grace
Earned a permanent spot on my bookshelf!
“Over the years I’ve accumulated TONS of inspirational books. After one read many of those books wind up in a box in my garage or in a give-away bin. But not this book. An Anointed Mess is one that has earned a spot on my bookshelf–for rereading and referencing. Unlike many spiritually motivated books, this one is real, raw and gets down to the nitty-gritty of our messy, human walk with God.”
— Annette Marie Griffin, award winning author
The book is beautifully written
“The book is beautifully written and I absolutely love that each chapter has an Our Story, My Story, God’s Story, and Your Story breakdown. By doing this the author has effectively combined Biblical truth with personal testimony in a way that leads to life application. This book made me think about God’s ways and His plans in a whole new light, and I know it will do the same for any reader who is struggling to better understand how God could ever use their messy life for His glory.”
— Christian leadership expert Peggy Bodde
A heartfelt sharing of a life lived for God through lessons learned
“An Anointed Mess is Karen Pennington’s sharing of moments of Grace in her life through trusting God. In fourteen well laid out chapters, she first writes a general explanation, then her personal experience, then a story in scripture that mirrors her own, and finally 5-7 thoughtful questions for readers to consider.
I found myself hurrying through the general explanations to get to her own experiences. Most of them hit home in my life. The Bible connections just proved that our modern “messes” aren’t new.
By reading one of the chapters each day, I know I would grow in the Graces she highlights.’”
