Ways to practice Grace include accepting God's love, watching for gifts, reading spiritual memoirs and biographies, being aware of synchronicities, the gift of tears, lighting candles, and the specific practices below.

Get in the habit of acknowledging moments of grace in your life. When something happens unexpectedly; when a reward comes to you without your having worked for it; when you receive an opportunity you think you do not deserve; when you recognize an insight or a person's appearance as a gift; say, "That's a freebie."
