The author shares that she was adopted by her stepfather when her Mom remarried. As the mother of three biological children, to adopt was a hard decision for her. Yet, once she connected with two teenage boys from war-torn Liberia, Africa, she began to reconsider. She knew that she would have her hands full with five children. Still, she decided to heed God's command, and states in her book how fulfilling life has been since she did that.
Lysa shares many other stories of her life. Her husband and she once found themselves blessed with a little extra money. She excitedly began to plan how she would spend the money. Her husband wanted to give the money to the ministry! She was beside herself because they were always giving and giving. She started out using kind words to persuade him and when that didn't work, she became cold and angry. So, he relented. Yet, God had a lesson in store for her! Once she gave into God's will, she was able to find the peace and the object she had been searching for.
The book is chock full of all kinds of wisdom and direction. There are also numerous Bible Study questions and quotations for all readers to follow. I enjoyed the book and its message.
Lysa TerKeurst is providing a simple word of advice for all women to take to heart: Let Go and Let God!
Armchair Interviews says: Simple but powerful message.
A small group of eight of us used this book as a Bible study. An earlier (5-star) reviewer stated: "It is not so deep we lose the new Christians and all of us can learn something new from this Book." Unfortunately, therein lies the problem of this book. It is not deep, in fact it's quite shallow.
The first two or three chapters started out well, and we looked forward to continuing on. I liked the suggestion to begin a "blessings book," noting when I had said YES, and God's awesome responses.
The middle of the book was a disappointment. Lysa described conflicts in her marriage, and their biggest problems seemed to be (dis)agreeing on what curtains to purchase while decorating their house. That's nice for them, but in reality, that doesn't describe the deeper issues in any marriage.
I also took issue with the variety of Bible versions used in the text. Pick one version, preferably one that is a literal translation, and then stick with it. We don't need to twist God's word and find different versions just to suit a particular story we want to tell.
She finally lost me at the end of the book (Ch. 8/sacrificial giving section). When planning a long-awaited clothes shopping trip, Lysa learned of a friend who desperately needed $100--the exact amount Lysa had saved to buy clothes. Lysa gave her money to her friend. Lysa worried that her shopping friends would be disappointed, but instead she was delighted to learn that they gifted her with $700 to go on her shopping spree. Seven hundred dollars!!Read more ›
helps each of us. It is not so deep we lose the new Christians and all of us can learn something new from this Book.
We have about 18 ladies involved and I would recommend this for any
Bible Study Group seeking common growth in the common ground of our
belief in Jesus Christ.
I haven't purchased this book yet, it's true, and it might be odd to write a review for a book that I haven't fully read. But I wasn't expecting to wake up this morning and start crying. I didn't know this was what God had in store for me today, I just figure I'd read something encouraging and get on with my day. I'm thankful that instead God directed me to this book, to finally say YES to Him. Definitely going to order this book and share it with others!
God bless you all!
