Embrace Grace; New Medicine for a Wounded World
Posted by Literary Titan
At a young age, Arlene had already figured out her life’s goal; to be a doctor. As an American-Filipino deeply rooted in the church, and a devoted Catholic, she made both spiritual and physical preparations to realize this goal. However, the path to becoming the vessel of healing she was called to be was a tough and windy one. After years of obtaining certifications, winning numerous awards, and practicing in the field, Arlene realized something was missing in her service, and to reach her full potential she had to dig deeper and find the missing pieces of the puzzle. This opened a new chapter in her life.
Embrace Grace, by Arlene McCain, is an inspirational memoir that contains the candid thoughts and fascinating true life events of the author. Arlene McCain found some of the rules and regulations governing the organizations she served constraining and non-fulfilling. As time went by, she found her inner fire was beginning to deplete. An essential piece of her service was suppressed and she was contemplating quitting. However, after years of meditation, sitting with the word of God, and finding the right circle, she found the missing piece and through the light of God, was able to successfully integrate it into her work and step into her true essence. Embrace Grace is an uplifting testimony detailing Arlene’s journey of self-discovery. Readers will learn about her discoveries, her theories, and life lessons coined from one of the darkest periods of her life which birthed the perfect space to fulfill her life’s goal.
This is an emotionally-resonant autobiography that shows the power of faith, perseverance and the willingness to enact change. I enjoyed this memoir because of Arlene’s vulnerability, sincerity and candor. She invites readers into unheard and unseen moments of her life and her world of uncertainty and imperfection. I found this to be encouraging and I think it will inspire readers to brave the path to their respective life goals. Every page, right from her unrefined journal entries to the words in her memoir, drips with the unending trust, respect, and love she has for God.
Embrace Grace is an eloquent and heartening memoir and I enjoyed the candid account of Arlene’s journey towards her spiritual and religious calling.
