Grace Unplugged the Novel
Grace Trey is an 18-year-old singer as passionate about her Christian faith as she is her phenomenal, God-given musical talent. When Grace encounters her own music break of a lifetime, the sudden dive into the "real world" puts her deeper beliefs to the test. Pop superstardom is just within reach but appears to require some spiritual compromise. Will Grace reject her faith, or will she own it?
Own it mirrors the film by asking what it means to really "own" your personal faith rather than just automatically following in the footsteps of parents, friends, or other influencers. Best-selling authors Hayley and Michael DiMarco help readers understand what to do when faith meets real world challenges.

These books are wonderful. Grace Unplugged is a story all teens and young adults should read if they have a dream they are pursuing. Okay, even if they don't have a dream like Grace in the book they should read this book. It is relevant to life today and will inspire them to live life according to the Bible. And Own It should be mandatory reading for all teens and young adults. Adults too. We can all use encouragement to make our faith our own and to really Own It.
Here are some quotes from Own It that I really liked.
"The difficutly of faith doesn't come from the lack of feeling or even action but from the lack of divine knowledge--the knowledge of who God is and of the depth of His love."
"What you feel for something you own is completely different from how you feel about something that isn't yours."
"When you are faking something for the approval of others, even the approval you get is painful because it's based on a lie, and the real you never truly finds acceptance."
"...for many the statement "I'm a good person" carries the same amount of weight as "Jesus died for me."
"In fact, the amount of time your relationships get points to the health and depth of those relationships."
"The degree God intervenes in your life will be directly proportional to the time you spend with Him."
I highly recommend both books. I enjoyed them so much and am requiring all of my girls to read Own It when they are teenagers!
