Book Review and Giveaway

The Life Ready Woman by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis

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 LifeReady 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.

My Personal Review:

This book is a must read by all women no matter what stage of life. One of my favorite parts of the book is found on page 142 "A choice for one thing is a choice against another". Life is full of situations and opportunities. There is valuable insight and life guidance tips; no matter if you are spending your daylight hours with a newborn at home or as a top executive  This book provides thought provoking questions and things to consider no matter your season of life and how to live each day to the fullest as you carry out your calling. The subtitle of Thriving in a Do-It-All-World snagged me. It doesn't say; thriving and doing it all. The honesty this books conveys about how our choices impact not only the present, but future seasons of our life is insightful while also being sensitive to each of our individual situations and callings.

I believe you will find this book not only insightful, but impactful not only today, but as you continue on your journey as a woman.  I am thrilled that the publisher has provided a new copy of this book for me to giveaway on my blog. If you would like to be entered in a drawing for your own copy of the book please leave a comment with your name and email here. The winner will be drawn on Friday, February 26th and notified by email and also posted on my blog.
