KRISTIN ARMSTRONG was married to cyclist Lance Armstrong for five years, raising their three children while living in France and Spain. She is the author of a children's book, Lance Armstrong: The Race of His Life, and a contributing editor for Runner's World magazine. Her work has also appeared in USA Today and Parentwise Austin and Glamour magazines. Kristin is passionate about her Christian faith, her family, her friends, and her career. She speaks French and Spanish, is a marathon runner, and enjoys cooking, reading, painting, and travel. Kristin now lives happily ever after in Austin, Texas, with her family-Luke, age seven, and twins Grace and Isabelle, age five.

Book Description (Hachette Book Group website)
When Kristin Armstrong was in the pit of her divorce, she eagerly read every spiritual book and devotional she could get her hands on out of a hunger to connect with someone who knew exactly what she was going through and how she felt. Now, at a time when society offers so many conflicting messages about what it means to be a woman, Kristin invites readers to discover grace as a way of life.
Using real-life anecdotes, biblical wisdom, and insight born of hard experience, Kristin teaches women the twelve traits of grace, inviting reflection and interaction. Warm, engaging, and practical, WORK IN PROGRESS examines what God has to say about being His kind of woman in the twenty-first century.

In her book Kristin Armstrong has chosen twelve traits of Grace to explore. She uses these traits to help us find what God finds pleasing instead of what society tells us is pleasing. All of us are pulled in so many directions and get so many mixed messages that sometimes it's difficult to sort out who we are as women and who God wants us to be. Kristin gives us some insight on how to do this. I'd rank this up with John and Stasi Eldredge's "Captivating" in books that all women should read. What a boost it will give you in your confidence and about your place in God's eyes. The best part is that Kristin inserts many relevant Bible passages you can refer back to easily. She also writes with a great sense of humor! I really loved this book. It really was a refresher that I needed right now. Work In Progress is very uplifitng and inspirational, and would be great for any women on your gift list. This would also be one of a great book for teen/young adult women.

Thanks to Valerie at FaithWords for the book and for allowing me to participate in the tour!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
