First off, to fully experience this book, I expect you need to do the full 40-day Bible study - which (in the effort of full disclosure) I have not completed.

With that said, I find it ironic that right before I picked up this book to read, I had a conversation with a friend who expressed some of the "If" scenarios that Demetre outlines in her "is this book for you" introduction.

My friend expressed frustrations on how to balance work, family and faith. She also talked about a lack of joy in her life.

I listened, completely understanding everything she was saying, knowing that she was not alone - I too have experienced the same frustrations - especially when trying to balance life and a job in the church.

(But in another effort of full disclosure, I experienced the same feelings balancing life in and out of a newsroom when I was working full time as a journalist.

Somehow, I think, like most women, I struggle with finding a way to have joy and contentment, even when life well, tossed me a few lemons.

I appreciated Demetre's hard hitting questions and easy writing style. I like how she incorporates "real" stories into her chapters - to help you fully understand the topics.

I also appreciated Demetre's complete openness - especially in the chapter that talks about the cancer of discontentment. It made me wonder if I have let life's disappointments over the past 12 years build up, almost like a cancerous growth, allowing it to steel my passion and joy.

I'm going to try to do the study in her book for the next 40 days, simply because I'm hoping the book will live up to this tag line - "It's time to move from simply surviving to truly thriving once again!"

(This year, my "one word" for the year has been "half-full." I've been trying to find the "half-full" things in life. I'm hoping that this study is another step in the right direction.)

What Happened to My Life by Danna Demetre, I believe, was a book written especially for busy, over-worked, stressed out women! It was amazing how she touched upon all the issues that women face. I know that her book especially touched me, and the speed at which my life rotates upon.

Some of Ms. Demetres' topics were all too common, but often left without a resolution on how to fix the "issues" that each women personally face. Some of the questions she asks are, "Do you feel too busy?, Do you worry about the future? Do disappointments in life drain your joy?". The best part of this book is she offers solutions to the problems!

The Book starts by breaking down the problems that woman face on an easy day by day assignment, if you will say this; by breaking the book down to a 40 day journey. She teaches women, how to "slow down and make good choices.", Pursue God in a Life-changing way, choose the very best from all the Good. I especially loved the fact that it was written from a Christian perspective, with Godly resolutions.

I recommend this book to every woman, of every age, and walks of life. It is a very easy to comprehend, common-sense resolutions, with a Godly spin.

I love book reviewing with Revell, I received a complimentary copy of the book, and look forward to hearing what you have to say about the book.

This summer at our annual church Ladies Weekend Retreat we shared things from this book. It is a very thought provoking insightful book. I recommend this book if you are finding yourself in a rut, feeling depressed, discouraged, and or just struggling with every day life, etc. It will make you think, evaluate your life, make you laugh, and perhaps even make you cry. It is well worth the read. We all want to know our purpose, have passion about something, and joy in our lives and this book can help one find these things. It is all about choices we make.

I teach a ladies class and this book has touched everyone. The author is so transparent and shares openly about things she could have kept secret. Because of her honesty, the reader can learn in deeper ways for life applications. Well worth the study for growth in personal ways.

This book is really two in one. In the first half, Demeter (life coach, president and founder of Women of Purpose ministry) engages readers in an honest look at their lives. She covers topics such as expectations, time and emotional expenditures, habits, and causes of discontent. She then takes a look at how to rectify these issues through her own and other women's personal stories.

The second half of the book is a 40 day study to help readers discover new, healthy, spiritual ways to rediscover contentment and joy.

I thought this book was pretty good. It was very self-helpish. I found myself reading quickly through many parts thinking...okay, I know this. But there were some new insights as well which I was grateful for. I liked the idea of really, truly believing God's principles as defined in the Bible, not just knowing them. Winning the battle in one's mind and how that relates to contentment/joy was the main message of this book which was a good reminder for me.

I have not done the entire 40 day study yet, but appreciate Demeter taking her ideas and helping readers apply them through further exercises to help her message stick.
