2 Book Reviews and a Giveaway ~ Grace Unplugged and Own It

Grace Unplugged is a book based on the movie which is coming out on October 4th 2013. Be sure and watch the movie trailer posted at the end of my review.

Grace Trey inherited her fathers talent for singing and music and is a part of the worship team at their church. She has a style all her own, but her father thinks her "style" isn't appropriate for praise and worship songs and would rather her keep things toned down.

Its hard enough being 18 and wanting to do your own thing, and she really wants a chance to have a music career like her father once had when he was young. She has no idea what all that can entail however.

When her father's old partner, Mossy, shows up and offers him a record deal if he will remake his old "one hit wonder" and he declines, Grace just cant believe it. Why would he do such a thing??

If her dad could do it, why couldn't she? So she secretly contacts Mossy and sends him a self made demo of herself singing her fathers song. She leaves home after a little fight with her dad, and heads to LA to start her musical career.

This story is a twist on the tale of the prodigal son. Life in show biz isn't all she hoped it would be, but God clearly uses the choices Grace made for good, and the story has a happy ending. Part of that ending is due to her reading the book Own It.

Paperback: 304 pages $15.99

Own It has been one incredible read so far,  Im still reading it. This book has life changing power. You will be challenged to discover just what you believe and why you believe that way.

Are you simply mimicking someone else's faith? Perhaps growing up in church or a prominent person in your life helped form your beliefs, but what about what the Bible says? What has God revealed to you? Its going to make you think!

Testimonies are given by others so you can see what owning your faith is like in real life. I am being challenged to own my faith and Im going to have my grown children read this book when Im done with it.

Paperback: 192 pages $14.99

  1. These sound like great books to read especially the Own It book! I need a life changer book that will inspire me to think about my own faith in God possibly even one that will help me rediscover myself. We often get lost in other people's beliefs and sometimes I wonder if I have. Well, I am off to watch the Grace Unplugged video. I told my hubby about it. Have you seen it? Is it a family movie one that a six-year old could watch? If so we might be checking it out soon! Thank you for sharing!

    1. I have not seen the movie, but from the previews it looks good. If it follows the book it will be very family friendly. It has been reviewed by companies that rate movies based on family friendliness, look for those reviews if you have concerns :) Thanks for posting!
