For Lisa Velthouse's whole life, Christianity had been about getting things right. Obeying her parents. Not drinking. Not cursing. Not having premarital sex. Vowing to save her first kiss until she got engaged, even writing a book called . . . well, "Saving My First Kiss." (This, it turns out, does not actually help a girl get a date.) Yet after two decades of trying to earn God's okay, she found her faith was lonely, empty, and unsatisfying. So she turned to "more" discipline, of course: fasting By giving up her favorite foods--sweets--Lisa hoped to somehow discover true sweetness and meaning in her relationship with God. Until, one night at a wedding, she denied herself the cake but failed in such a different, unexpected, and world-rocking way that it challenged everything she thought she knew about God and herself. "Craving Grace" is the true story of a faith dramatically changed: how in one woman's life God used a bitter heart, a broken promise, and the sweetness of honey to reveal the stunning wonder that is grace.
