The Life Ready Woman Book Review and Give-Away

Check out the give-away located at the bottom of this review!!

SUMMARY:  This is a great day to be a woman....even when you're trying to balance it all!
     We have amazing choices and opportunities today - opportunities our great-grandmothers could never have imagined.  Yet we also encounter a whole new host of challenges.
    Every woman knows the feeling of struggling to juggle everything, wishing there were more hours in the day.  And every woman has also enjoyed the wonderful opportunities God provides that simply didn't exist a few generations ago.  The trick is knowing how to manage this crazy, modern life.  For those of us who follow Jesus, the challenge is even greater.  How can we live a modern life from a biblical perspective?
    The great new is:  there's a way to do this!  There is a way to be "ready" for life that leads to peace and enjoyment rather than stress and regret.  Within the ancient words of the Bible we can find a road map that applies directly to our lives as contemporary women: an encouraging, life-giving blueprint you can look to for clarity about the unique design, callings, balance, choices, relationships, and direction that God has for you.
    Becoming "Life Ready" involves thinking purposefully about subjects you may never have thought through before.  It involves courageous steps of faith at some points, and waiting for open doors in others.  But the end result will be that you not only survive but thrive in our do-it-all world.  Being a "Life Ready" woman means you are clear about your life, bold in your faith, and able to find God's best for you.  No matter where you are - younger, older; single, married, divorced, remarried; stay-at-home mom or busy executive; no matter your ethnic background or even your personal faith beliefs or questions - you can start today to reach for it.  The Life Ready Woman will guide you there!

REVIEW:  The Life Ready Woman - Thriving in a Do-It-All World lays out easy to follow steps to help you in our crazy busy world.  The first part starts out by laying the foundation using the Old and New Testaments.  Instead of condemning women for trying to be there for their families and doing it all, it shows us what God says in His word about His plans and purposes for us.  The second part gives us strategies for getting God's best for us that are clearly laid out to follow.  Some of it is not easy to do but sometimes necessary if we want to see God impact our lives.  I would recommend this book to any woman wanting help and direction while she is trying to do it all.
