Blog Tour: Grace in the Middle

posted on

Starting today and running through August 29, Ambassador International is hosting a blog tour of Wendy Duke’s new non-fiction book, Grace in the Middle: An Imperfect Journey to God’s Perfect Plan. Be sure to check back in throughout the week to see the reviews and inspiring thoughts some of our bloggers have written about this exciting new publication.

What is Grace in the Middle?

Grace in the MiddleSynopsis: “You are beautiful, little girl of mine,” Wendy Duke whispered over her newborn daughter. It was a still moment amidst the turmoil of birth defects and a life-threatening illness. Grace in the Middle is a memoir recounting one young couple’s struggle to hold on to an unraveling faith during the greatest crisis of their lives. Heartbreaking, triumphant, and funny in just the right places, this inspiring story is an authentic reflection on battling and overcoming physical illness and disability, resisting the dark doubts that plague us in the midst of tragedy, and trusting the faithfulness of God through the deep twists and turns of life.

We’ve asked some of our bloggers to read and review Duke’s story. Their posts will range from a basic review to a discussion about something about the Dukes’ imperfect journey that inspired them.

Perhaps you’ll recognize some of the names on our list!
