Dena Dyer writes with honesty and vulnerability about the ways God has revealed Himself within the struggles of motherhood. She invites us to experience with her the sustaining grace of God—with humor, strength, and patience. Like many moms, Dyer recognizes that busy moms race through the days, juggling many responsibilities and challenges. Her short meditations inspire, encourage, and redirect the attention of the heart to the things that really matter.
Grace for the Race is divided into nine sections. Each piece begins with a thought-provoking and/or humorous quote and ends with “Notes from the Coach,” encouraging scriptures related to the meditation. These brief reflections invite us to see our own childhood through the lens of God’s grace and to accept weaknesses as gifts from God designed to make us more compassionate. Dyer gently leads us through the challenges of parenting—including perfectionism, competitiveness, unrealistic expectations, and the need for a network of support.
Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 9 that we must run the race as if our life depended on it. These devotionals are meant to help you recognize your place in the race (and God’s offer of peace in the midst of storms).
