Some of you may have noticed that next to my name, Shawna K. Williams, I have the brand, Author of Grace-Inspired Fiction. My reason for choosing this was that I want to write stories that portray God's Grace in the lives of imperfect people. This is important to me!

I'm doing a lot of giveaways during the blog tour for "No Other". I have details for the month long contest posted on this blog, but on the individual blogs I've been giving stuff away too. Since "No Other" is an ebook, I thought something tangible might be a nice addition, so I've made these bracelets, and there's a story behind them that relates to why I chose to describe my stories as "Grace-Inspired."

A pearl starts as an irritant within the shell of an oyster. It's shape is determined by the way the oyster coats it so that it will be easier to live with -- not unlike people, and how our experiences -- good and bad -- mold us. Freshwater pearls are imperfect, but each is unique; and when they're strung together by an artist they form something beautiful. I like to think that God takes each of us and uses the experiences of our lives to do the same thing. We are transformed through His Grace into a one-of-a-kind work of art. Imperfect, but lovely just the same. So I plan to keep making these bracelets to go with my book, because as people read I want them to remember this, not just for the characters in the story, but for themselves.
God bless and happy reading.
