Review–The Life Ready Woman by Shaunti Feldhahn & Robert Lewis–And Giveaway!

LifeReady

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Are you a ‘Doing it all’ or ‘Do what matters’ woman?

Whether a stay at home; or working mom, an airplane-hopping executive, an empty-nester caring for multiple generations or a single juggling high demands of career and personal life, today's fast-paced modern world leaves women gasping for balance. We as modern Christian women want to look to the Bible for guidance on how to manage our lives -- but because the world of women looks so different today than it did when the Bible was written, it is hard to find chapter and verse that seems to apply to our situation today.

Thankfully, God has given us exactly that timeless, unchanging guidance for how to find peace, clarity, and God's best for our lives once we know where to look! The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World, reveals a profound biblical roadmap for how each of us can find the abundant life we are longing for, rather than the stressful, torn, how-do-I-balance-it-all life we often feel like we are trying to keep up with today. Actually being a Life Ready Woman means that you are clear about your life, bold in your faith, and able to find God’s best for you, and the end result will be that you not only survive but thrive in our do-it-all world.

God has given every wonderfully unique woman different skills and abilities, different desires, and different temperaments -- and every woman around the planet and through the ages is certainly living in different circumstances. But no matter what a woman’s life looks like, the Bible says that God has an individual mission and plan that He’s carefully designed for each of us. And He wants us to find it. Starting January 2011, The Life Ready Woman and the Life Ready Woman Video Series will help every wonderfully unique woman to thrive as she identifies and courageously pursues God's unique design and callings for her. Life Ready Woman puts you on a roadmap to make decisions that will lead to relief, delight, and fulfillment instead of regret.

MY REVIEW:

I always find it more difficult to review a non-fiction book, especially one that works to give us a Biblically based life path.  Seriously – who am I to say it is good or not?

Fortunately I did like this book and that makes it easier.  It addresses women in the many different life phases we find ourselves in.  There were real life examples and “road maps” to help us to look at things realistically.

I read this book much more slowly than I usually read and did it in small chunks rather than sitting and reading through an evening.  The chapters and examples were thought provoking and meant to be pondered rather than rushed through.  In fact, I have no doubt that I will reread this book several times through the years so that I can glean new pearls for new phases of life.

THE GIVEAWAY!  Litfuse generously sent an extra book so that I can give it away!  I promise you that you will not be disappointed in this book should you win.  The only requirement I have for entry is to leave a comment on this post.  I will draw a winner on March 3 at 6:00 in the evening, so plenty of time to enter.
