My Review:

This has been one of my favorite books that I have read in the last year! The author writes in such a relational way that I felt like I was sitting with her, and having a conversation with her in a coffee shop! She uses real-life experiences to show the reader how to take what you read in your Bible and Study materials and apply it in your everyday life! I loved that! This book gives you all the basics that you will need to dig deeper and grow stronger in your faith! One thing that she says that really impacted me was this:

"Setting our hearts and minds on God and letting His truths change us, rearrange us and redirect us will help us not just to know the message of Jesus Christ - but to live it out!" (p. 26)

If you want to learn how to grow deeper in your relationship with God and become the woman in Him, that you are supposed to be you have to read this book! I highly recommend it!
