Today marks the day this book is officially released to the world, which means it’s the day I can share it with you and you can actually do something about it.

You guys know me. You know I share my stories because they’re what I’ve been given, and because there’s grace to be found there.

In All the Pretty Things, Edie Wadsworth shares the story she’s been given- the story of Appalachian poverty and a girl’s complicated relationship with her daddy and the Father who pursues her. It’s beautiful and spellbinding and heartbreaking and redemptive. She spares none of the hurt or the shame, and in sharing it all, she gives us the full volume of hope.

I want to leave it for you to discover, but her memoir will be rolling around in my heart and head for a long time to come. Her background is thoroughly different from mine, but we share a God who redeems, and I got to know His heart a little better better through her story.

Robin Chapman is a clumsy Jesus follower, imperfect wife and mom, normalizer of failure, and writer who captures both the gritty experience of motherhood and the grace of God as it carries her despite her (many) imperfections. Her writing is laced with humor and vulnerability, sure to make you laugh and breathe a sigh of relief, knowing you are not alone. As an editor and writer for, she is a cheerleader for moms in the trenches. She educates her four children at home in Alaska, where she lives with her ridiculously good looking husband, Andrew.
