The Grace of Yes
Eight Virtues for Generous Living
By Lisa M. Hendey
What People Are Saying
"I am deeply grateful that Lisa Hendey said yes to The Grace of Yes. We spend so much time thinking about the yeses in our calendars, our checkbooks, our parenting and other relationships that we sometimes forget the most important yes of all--our response to the call of God. Hendey shares her wisdom, her heart, and her experiences to remind us and refine us as we read. I give this book a resounding YES!"
—Kristin Armstrong, author of Happily Ever After
"The Grace of Yes shows why Lisa Hendey resonates with so many people around the world. With clear, accessible language, she teaches that the profound lessons of the Gospel can inform our daily lives. Every one of our interactions and every one of our decisions give us the opportunity to learn and grow in the way God intended. Lisa understands that, and when you read this book, you will, too."
—Carolyn Y. Woo, President and CEO, Catholic Relief Services
"The Grace of Yes urges you to ask big questions--and then to answer them in the small, loving actions of your daily life. Lisa Hendey offers encouragement to spiritual seekers by telling honest stories about the joys and struggles of living out her faith. She demonstrates that the path of faith isn't always an easy one, but it's always worth the effort."
—Kerry Weber, author of Mercy in the City
'The Grace of Yes is classic Lisa Hendey. Lisa's transparency and candor coupled with her experiences of living a life fully engaged make this book well worth reading and sharing. Anyone seeking a path to more virtuous Catholic living should buy this excellent book!'
—Randy Hain, author of The Journey to Heaven
"It's easier to say no than it is to say yes. When a friend needs help moving a couch, you'd rather say no. When the boss asks if you can take on more work, your instinct is to say no. When I ask a woman out on a date, she usually says no. 'No' is safe. 'No' is simple. But 'no' isn't always the right answer. Lisa Hendey's The Grace of Yes teaches, challenges, and encourages us how to say yes to God and others. Should you read this book? Yes! And God's grace will work within you."
—Lino Rulli, host of "The Catholic Guy" on SiriusXM Satellite Radio
