This book was chosen for a women's Bible study group and I wanted to pull my hair out during every chapter I forced myself to read. I could not finish this book. I tried, but it's so immature and superficial. Some (but not all) of this might be good for junior high or high school girls, but not adult women. I disagreed with some of the book because it has a very black and white view of things, not taking into account an individual's experience and even misconstrues what the Bible says. For example on page 73, Chapter 6 Theft #4: "I'm focusing on my family" (as a justification to not go to church and connect with people). "If you say to yourself, 'I'm the mom of three young kids! I'll get back in a few years,' you've had your identity stolen." No Author, my identity wasn't stolen. I am still a child of God and mother to my child, thank you very much. As a mother, I am called by God to protect the precious little one He chose to bless me with. I can watch church online, do my own Bible study, and connect with my Christian friends when I am able to.
This author clearly was never a single mother of an infant due to circumstances outside of her control. You better believe I'm staying home with my baby to bond with her, keep us safe and healthy by avoiding sickness from other people/kids (this was pre-covid!), and work through the devastation we had to face, and then come back to people. Some of the statements, like that one, in this book are beyond insulting. After facing devastating major life events where your faith is tested and your relationship with God comes out stronger because of the devastation, this book is irrelevant.
The discussion questions are disconnected and disjointed, like the author(s) didn't know what to ask, so just slapped something together. I had so much hope for this book and was very disappointed.
The Gospel Coalition has provided us with a resource that would be ideal for group study. Ten chapters. 137 pages. Memory verses and study notes at the end of each chapter. I will definitely read it again. —Deb Finnamore (David's wife; joint account)
