This is a book celebrating the incredible, awesome, special individual within each of us. It's also a book for anyone who has ever mismatched her shoes or trimmed her own bangs when a professional might have been a better choice or added too much soap to the washer and watched it overflow. <br /> <br />(Not that KariAnne Wood has ever done any of these things.) <br /> <br />Fans of <i>The Magnolia Story</i> and <i>The Pioneer Woman</i> will love this debut memoir from the beloved Thistlewood Farms blogger. <i>So Close to Amazing</i> is a collection of hilarious and heartfelt reflections on getting it <i>almost</i> right―and how, instead of giving up, we can choose to simply embrace our real selves right where we are. It's a story of transparency and honesty and recognizing that perfection is completely overemphasized and overrated. It's about grace and learning from mistakes and rejoicing in every victory, no matter how small. Because when you find joy in the &quot;you&quot; God created you to be, you'll discover the amazing that was there all along. <br /> <br />Contains beautiful DIY project ideas anyone can do, whether you're Pinterest perfect or craft challenged--homemade signs, centerpieces, recipe walls, and more!

A Joy to Read

Reading So Close To Amazing has been a joy and delight! KariAnne Wood candidly shares her personal stories and adventures of good days, great days, and just really hard days. The days that she was so close, so close to perfection, so close to amazing. But, somehow, something went wrong. It was way off. Not even close. So far from amazing. But it's in days and moments like these that God's love for us shines even brighter. KariAnne helps us to see that God is not looking for our moments of perfection, but He is looking at the desire of our hearts. Our loving and serving out of sincere hearts, even if the results aren't perfect. Because God is the God of grace, He embraces us in all of our imperfect moments. He gives us grace to do that for others and for ourselves. So Close To Amazing includes delightful stories; side notes and take- away truths, plus several original Do-it-yourself projects to make. These are the very ones that KariAnne talks about in So Close To Amazing! I very highly recommend So Close To Amazing. The stories were a delight to read and warmed my heart. KariAnne's heartfelt memoir helped me to joyfully reflect on my own "so close to amazing" moments. I learned to embrace the times I'm "so close to amazing" because I'm held so close by the One Who is Amazing! *Disclaimer: I have been blessed to have been able to read and review So Close To Amazing.
