Publisher's Description

Runny noses. Dirty diapers. Unfolded laundry. The day-to-day life of the average housewife is filled with countless tasks that can feel mundane and ordinary, causing women to wonder if they'e missing out on bigger and better things.

Eager to encourage such struggling homemakers, pastor's wife and mother of three Gloria Furman highlights the reality of God's grace in all of life, especially those areas that often seem boring and unimportant. Filled with personal examples and anecdotes, this richly theological reflection on what it means to be a wife, mother, and homemaker challenges readers to see and cherish the gospel's extraordinary impact on ordinary life. Glimpses of Grace will inspire a renewed gospel-cheerfulness among women faithfully serving God in and through their homes.

Endorsements

“I know no one who is leveraging her everyday life more for the glory of God than Gloria Furman. I want to learn about God and grace from people who live it and fight to do so. I've seen my friend do both beautifully. Gloria has taken the bigness of God and laid him into the cracks of the mundane, and somehow the mundane starts to feel big.” — Jennie Allen, author, Stuck: The Places We Get Stuck and the God Who Sets Us Free.

“This is sustaining grace, this is the desired haven: to know his steadfast love that saves and keeps us. Glimpses of Grace is not a how-to. It is a true friend’s invitation to see and know the Lord’s steadfast love displayed in every wave, big and small. Gloria offers encouragement rooted in her personal experience and wisdom from saints who have weathered the storms decades and even centuries before us. May you catch glimpses of his steadfast love and find an anchor for your soul.” — Lauren Chandler, writer; speaker; singer; wife of Matt Chandler, The Village Church, Flower Mound, Texas.

“Gloria is real! She’s going to tell you about the smell of her kitchen floor and the steadfast love of her Savior. Jonathan Edwards is right in there with peanut butter sandwiches and sprinkles. The grace this book shows us is no vague idea; it’s the biblical gospel infusing the stuff of life—the daily life of a homemaker. Strongly, humbly, and winsomely, this book calls homemakers (and all of us) to walk in faith, connecting with the visible and the invisible.” — Kathleen Nielson, Director of Women’s Initiatives for The Gospel Coalition.

“Glimpses of Grace is a beautiful picture of what it looks like to see Jesus Christ every day in every circumstance. Our friend Gloria takes the glories of Christ’s life and opens our eyes to their realities in the seemingly mundane circumstances of our lives. She builds a longing to know more of God and to believe that he is present in all of our work as mothers and wives. Her passion for missions and joy in God is contagious. We are excited to recommend this book to anybody wanting to see the ultimate reality of satisfaction in Christ alone for every day of your life.” — Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson, authors, Give Them Grace.

“We need gospel fuel to joyfully serve our families, and that’s what Glimpses of Grace provides. Many days I unload a barrage of law upon my family, when what they need from me is grace, encouragement, and reminders of God’s faithfulness. I thank the Lord for using Gloria to point me to the glorious gospel of his grace so that I might extend the same grace to my husband and children. As homemakers we can be smothered by the ordinary, blinded by the mundane, living in a fog of routine and fatigue, unable to see how to clean messy noses or break up sibling squabbles for the glory of God. In Glimpses of Grace Gloria helps to lift the fog by showing us how the gospel can change our perspective as we serve and love our families.” — Kristie Anyabwile, homemaker; mom; wife of Thabiti Anyabwile, First Baptist Church of Grand Cayman.

“Every homemaker, every mother, every woman, has experienced the disconnect between what she knows and what she feels, between knowing that what she is doing is good and the reality that it is exasperating and seems unfulfilling. In Glimpses of Grace Gloria Furman brings the gospel to bear on a woman's distinct calling. With precision and grace she shows that the good news of all that Jesus Christ accomplished, when properly understood and carefully applied, will transform the way a woman carries out the task the Lord has given her.” — Aileen and Tim Challies, author, Disciplines of Spiritual Discernment.

About Gloria Furman

I'm a follower of Jesus Christ, wife to Dave, mother of four young children, and a Tex-Mex enthusiast.

When my husband and I moved to the Middle East in 2008 to plant Redeemer Church of Dubai it was just the two of us and our baby girl, and we had no idea what the Lord was going to do. It's been many years now, and not a day goes by that we're not astonished by God's grace in calling us here, in using us to minister to people from many nations, and in blessing us with two more children along the way (+1 more due in Summer 2013).

While I'm changing nappies and helping with homework, I serve the ladies in my community, teach God's word at various ladies' ministry events, and edit the Domestic Kingdom blog.
