Star for Jesus (and Other Jobs I Quit)

Rediscovering the Grace That Sets Us Free
  • Foreword by Bob Goff
  • By Kimberly Stuart
Product Description

A funny, thought-provoking memoir-in-essays about learning to understand--again and again--that we can't earn God's love no matter how many rules we follow or boxes we check, and learning to accept the grace that is freely given.

Growing up, Kimberly Stuart got really good at strapping on her spiritual tap shoes and trying to be a star for Jesus. She could sing all the songs, ace the sword drills, and know all the right theology. From earning creepy Jesus paperweights in her church's faux Girl Scout program to trying to calm an actual storm on the Mediterranean, she was doing her best... and still found herself longing for something more. She didn't mean to completely ignore the most beautiful tenets of her faith--the unwavering grace and tenacious love of God--but she did. Which, of course, was the problem. Her best was lackluster, and God wasn't looking for a star performer anyway.

Star for Jesus (And Other Jobs I Quit), is an invitation for readers to spot unvarnished, amazing grace when they see it. With her trademark wit and transparency, Stuart brings readers through both big and small moments that teach us to cling to the fierce love of God instead of the flimsier versions we find elsewhere.

With unflinching honesty and relatable humor, Stuart encourages readers to take another look at unrelenting grace; why, contrary to the cultural narrative, we are not actually enough, and that's good news; how we always, remarkably, have all the grace we need; and why this moment in history is the perfect time to extend no-strings-attached grace to an emotionally bedraggled, wary world.
