I tried to narrow it down to my favoritist quotes so far...I'm a little over halfway through it....I can't seem to STOP reading it...I'm definately going to have to read this twice...or more!
"Hiding behind that good-looking mask, her arms are folded too tightly to give and receive grace, or to fall into an embrace from God who sees beyond her good reputation."

"There is a difference between the discipline of sitting down with God and the pleasure of knowing his voice."
"He is a generous, patient, compassionate God and his expectations of us are not the same as our expectations of ourselves."
"We observe and interpret reactions through our own messed-up filters so that whatever is going on with others ultimately comes back around to us."
"You have trained people to think you have no needs, but you are secretly angry with them for believing you."
"All that is mine is yours. We already have the love and acceptance of our Father, so why do we try so hard to earn it?"
"I don't have to figure out the mess. I do have to trust in the One who can."
"She compares herself to rescued others and feels both less-than and better-than, proud and invisible."
