It is set up with discussion questions for your group - and provides enough for groups that meet for up to 2 hours! Our group only meets for an hour, so I'm thankful it breaks down which questions to do for shorter time frames.
There are optional devotions to do on your own - that are very helpful!
Beautifully drawn quotes, checklists, & scripture pages are also weaved into this study guide. Something lovely to set out as a daily reminder.
Although the study guide may not seem to fit well with the book - I found that they pair nicely together and I'm glad it isn't just a rewording of the same thing. The study guide is its own resource for learning this simple, practical and much needed life lesson.
As our group leader, I want to encourage you to create a Best Yes study group with this guide! This was one of the easiest guides to lead through - We met for just 1 hour, listened to Lisa's 15 minute video and then discussed the questions. A very simple and low effort group to lead - with only a 6 week commitment! It's been a joy!
"We must not confuse the command to love with the disease to please."
"The one who obeys God's instruction for today will develop a keen awareness of His direct for tomorrow."
"That little act of obedience somehow unplugged my spiritual ears."
Rich in biblical truths, drawn from lives lived thousands of years in the past, Lysa casts new light on familiar stories and digs out gems one may have never heard. This reference scripture stuck with me:
"Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it'" Isaiah 30:21
It sounds so simple, just walk in it, and yet through funny and relatable stories, Lysa highlights how hard it really is to live this out. She elegantly counters every opposition one can think of as to why one can't live this out and gives practical ways to live it out and how to changes habits.
"Knowledge is wisdom that comes from acquiring truth. Insight is wisdom that comes from
living out the truth we acquire. Discernment is wisdom that comes from the Holy Spirit's reminders of that knowledge and insight." Another fantastic summary of the process, this highlights how Lysa walks us through giving us knowledge from biblical truth, insight from the activities she suggests we try and discernment by encouraging our journey with the Holy Spirit.
"We want big directional signs from God. God just wants us to pay attention." And that to me sounds like a new year's resolution with which I can work! I can pause for that moment of clarity to hear God and choose obedience in the little things. I highly recommend this book and look forward breaking out my Best Yes in 2017!
Such a fantastic job of explaining why we need to wait, pray, and listen for God to speak before we just jump in and say yes before we really think things through and how we can rely on God to lead us and deliver our best yes or no. How as women we are here to serve Him not ourselves, not our idea of what 'perfect' this or that should look like or be. She speaks to the heart of people pleasing that women sometimes have in areas of life. If you are struggling with a pleasing heart or just need to know that it is okay to say no and save your yes for something else, this book is for you.
