This book takes an honest, realistic and humorous look at the common misconception that ministry and perfection are somehow synonymous. 'The Ministry of a Messy House' reminds us that we are actually far messier than we realize but our perfect Saviour delights to work through us for His glory. --Jane McNabb, Minister's Wife, conference speaker and author
Encouraging, practical, humorous and warm: this book is a gem and a wonderful affirmation of the grace of Christ that works in and not despite our mess. --Emma Scrivener, writer and speaker
We can't escape mess. However organised we are, the laundry is never done, the children aren't clean for long, church relationships are often frayed and our hearts are messed up with sin. Shot through with practical resources and biblical truth, this book reminds us with refreshing honesty how God wants to tackle the mess in our hearts. And the rest of the mess? He'll use it to display his grace, teach us to trust him, and reveal him to others. Highly recommended. --Elizabeth McQuoid, author of 'The Amazing Cross' and 'The Transforming Trinity'
