Simply Amazing!!! Just reading Jeanette's story is powerful on it's own. But for her to compile all of these incredible stories just leaves you feeling so hopeful. I do not read a lot of books, but this one is so gripping and powerful that I couldn't help but be drawn in to each chapter. Anyone who has ever faced any kind of challenge in their life (which is everyone) should read this book. You'll get perspective. You'll get hope. You'll have a strengthened faith.

Jeanette’s book “Extravagant Graces “is an outstanding read for anyone, who needs encouragement in his/her daily life. Jeanette shares how God helped many people overcome tragic and/or unpleasant events and emerge victorious from them. This book truly glorifies God Almighty. He has done great things in people’s lives! Read about some of them in “Extravagant Graces“and you will be astonished.

I had Jeanette in-studio as a guest on my radio show recently. She is just as energetic and passionate about her faith and God's grace in person as she is in print. For inspiration for your faith, and for insight into how God works - especially in dark times - these life stories show His marvelous and miraculous work.

Jeanette has done an amazing job compiling the real-life stories of those she writes about. Each story is written in a unique style that, I believe, will give hope and encouragement to her readers. Great job, Jeanette!

The short true life stories in "Extravagant Graces" are deeply rooted in Christian faith and though I'm not a religious person, they were still interesting and compelling. The extended stories about missionaries being killed in the field highlight the ultimate sacrifices some have been willing to make. Chaffee's own story is perhaps the most fascinating, having survived a mid-air terrorist bombing (I've been told the story firsthand by the author). Overall an easy and rewarding read!

It was so uplifting to read about how seemingly impossible, sometimes devastating life events were used to change lives, bring glory to God, and further His work on earth. Reading Extravagant Graces has reminded me that God is in charge and has a plan for each of us. It was hard to put the book down!

Extravagantly Expressed! To know Jeanette is to experience what a living exclamation point looks like. Her book reads in the same manner. She challenges the reader to recognize the extravagant graces in the stories. Also, she is dogged in tracking down all the information she requires to retell her stories. I am impressed with her quest for truth and verisimilitude. Great read!

Easy read -very well done I just finished the book. The stories in this book are very inspiring and help put our personal issues in proper perspective. Stories include examples of God's help in life and death situations as well as day to day problems we may all face. Easy read -- very well done!
