Reviews Everyday Grace

  • Meghan
    This is an extremely powerful book, especially if you're questioning your relationship with a higher power. I found Williamson's references to Cinderella and Harry Potter amusing and relatable. It was an easy read but that doesn't mean the content wasn't meaningful. Williamson chooses her words and her examples carefully; every idea she poses is meant to invoke a reaction. I keenly felt her points and was left quite thoughtful after I put the boo...
  • Kimberly
    Inspirational and down-to-earth, full of insight into the possibilites of the world we can create, if we become conscious enough to let it happen... "Our choice to stand within a field of infinite possibility is our miraculous authority in any situation."“Each day can be a glorious canvas painted by the hand of God, and we pray for eyes with which to see it.”“From a spiritual perspective anything negative that happens has only one purpose: ...

    This book contains some really great nuggets. Marianne knows how to break things down into language that makes so much clear sense. Some of it I kind of skimmed through, but there was one part that really motivated me and actually made a big difference in how I begin each day. I liked A Return To Love better, but this is very much worth reading.
  • Ree7ab
    Awesomely amazing book. It changed the way I look at life. A nice thing about it is a person of any faith and any walk of life will be able to relate and benefit.
  • Omar Taufik
    This book Every Day Grace could be considered a decent book on spirituality, life and divine love.It is my second Marianne Williamson read and was worth it .. full of meaning, insights and inspiration .. the book is made up of three sections after the introduction:First section where the tools or magic wands are displayed, second section where daily events are explored brilliantly in spiritual aspect, third section where main life events and subj...
  • Felicia V. Edens
    Marianne Williamson's “Everyday Grace: Having Hope, Finding Forgiveness, and Making Miracles” is a magical book on how we can live life better and more fully, every moment of our lives. This book is addressed to everyone, and starts off with a wonderful interpretation of the Harry Potter world, in which we all start off as plain Muggles and find the magic within our lives with a little help. Further on, there are deeply moving interpretations...
  • Anna
    What I appreciated about this book was not that it gave more information, but it gave practical application ideas. Some parts of the book were really inspiring to me, especially the parts encouraging me to look outside of myself towards serving and loving others. She said something from A Course in Miracles that really rubbed me the wrong way. She indicated the belief that God is the creator. God only creates good things. Therefore, if bad things...
  • Rebecca
    I really struggled between whether to rate this a three for "liked it" and a four for "really liked it." The message is top notch...give everything up to God...have total faith...and you will have peace and love in your life. And one really does need to be reminded on a continuous basis to have faith because it's difficult..so for that reason alone this book is worth reading. But, as with many of these spiritual/inspirational books, I find it mor...
  • Lu
    This was a great book! I would highly recommend it for anyone that is searching for meaning in life. At one point, she uses the term spiritual psychology. That is high I would term this book. All of us are connected through the love of the creator.
  • Brneyedbrunette
    loved it, loved it, loved it. I crack it open when I just need a little reminder.
  • Tania P
    I have to say that this book really did very little for me. It was a disappointment after reading Joseph Campbell's 'The Power of Myth'. He explained things far more clearly.
  • Joanne Cimini
    Great Book! It is to be read over and over again....
  • Peg
    The book was so close to her previous books I felt like I wasn't getting anything new. I rated it low because I was looking forward to new insights but didn't get any. That was disappointing.
  • Gail Kennon
    solid spiritual laws, clearly stated. inspiring.
  • Shawn
    This is the first opportunity that I’ve had to read Marianne Williamson and I certainly hope it will not be the last. My first encounter with Marianne was seeing her on the debate stage for the presidential primaries and my first impression was that she was certainly a bit “out in orbit” somewhere; but her responses were nevertheless logical and poignant. I was also bothered by the extent to which the debate commentators sought to purposefu...
  • Maya
    This is a great book. I had heard about the author and have watched some of her YouTube videos. She has a weekly lecture that she gives in NYC from some center where she practices her faith and you can watch old episodes on YouTube. She is a "student" of A Course in Miracles - which is a whole "thing" onto itself. I was concerned about reading her book that I would have to be familiar or have gone thru A Course in Miracles to be able to follow it...
  • Nicole
    I started this book ages ago and put it down at one point because life. Recently I rearranged my books and placed this one closer to the top with the intention of finishing it. With roughly 100 pages (more or less) left I decided to abandon it. I remember liking aspects of the books like certain things she had said, but in general being iffy about it. As I picked it up again I was quickly reminded as to why I was weary of it. It's sort of a new a...
  • Jennifer Mordan
    I loved this book. I like the way the book is laid out beginning with general topics about our personal magical powers, angels and prayer. The second part is laid out in the format of a daily schedule. The book gives realistic suggestions about how to included spirituality in your everyday routine. Marianne also includes how to use spirituality when experiencing challenges such as grieving, jealousy or guilt. The last part of the book covers impo...
  • Betsy Ng
    Enjoyed the way the book was written as it is easy to read and comprehend. A great book that taught me to be grateful of things and people around me. It also taught me how Christians should behave and live in grace daily. Her life experiences and inspiring anecdotes provide us with an attitude of hope and miracles. We should encompass thoughts of grace, live a day of grace and lead a life of grace. Yet there are challenges and obstacles that we n...
  • Erin
    This book is my life's philosophy of the moment. I loved pretty much every page of it and plan to buy it so I can reread it time and again. The only part of it that I might not agree with her about and that I need more time to discover for myself is the part about the sacrament of marriage. I've read many of Marianne's books and this is my favorite- one I would recommend to others because it is the most simple and straight-forward. It's so beauti...
  • Alicia
    Gutenberg's printing of the bible (1400's) revolutionized the distribution of knowledge. The distribution of printed text was directly responsible for a sharp increase in literacy. Of course stories are open to interpretation and we tend to see what we want to see. Every creature on earth seeks the same, to thrive without fear. Trust will conquer fear. Now you may ask who and what do I trust? Matthew 7:15-20
  • Jaclyn
    I found this book inspirational and enjoyable. There were a few bits that I didn't enjoy quite as much, but overall I would recommend this book. The author addresses spiritual practices without addressing them to any particular religion or spirituality specifically. For this reason, almost everyone can benefit from reading this book and will find it enjoyable and inspirational, which I believe was the writers purpose.
  • Kemi
    In this book Marrianne Williamson's approach to the mysteries of this world and how easily we loose sight of them; whether through weakening of our spiritual core or negative effects of this realm, is truly a refreshing way to remind us to continue having hope, forgiveness and love. We not only have the ability to thrive in continuous biss, but are privilaged to experience all the fantastic blessing of miraculous grace. Truly a blessing to be rem...
  • Stevie Nelson
    Marianne Williamson's book is an excellent read, especially during this political climate of fear. It is a reminder of the love and light at the core of everything on Earth. This book demonstrates how to cultivate love in your everyday life, and discusses how to free yourself from negative patterns. I plan to read it again next year!
  • Shelli
    Although I don't agree with all of Williamson's theological explanations, this book struck a chord. Love and being in harmony with God's will truly can heal each of us and all of us at the same time. I've always loved reading books with True principles from all religions, and this one did not disappoint.
  • Kelly
    I read this book a little every day and on the days I didn't get to it, I could tell. The book made me feel a sense of peace and grace in my hectic life. The greatest lesson I learned was that everyone on Earth really is *one* and I look at people in a new light now, especially people I don't like or don't understand. I also really like the concept of love as a force and not an emotion.
  • Andrea
    Again this book took me to a better place of understanding my self and the world we live in. If we all lived by the philosophy that is written in the pages of this amazing book we would see that we live in an amazing place. This is the third time I have read this and it continues to resonate with me!
