Your Sacred Yes
Popular Author & Speaker Equips Women to Live Focused and Free
Women today are stretched thin, worn weary, and tired of living hurried lives. And nothing drains us more than signing up for things God never asked us to do, even if they are well-intentioned. Yet, all too often that's exactly where we lose our way.
In "Your Sacred Yes," Susie Larson shares personal stories and biblical insights to help you:
- Learn how--and when--to say "no" without guilt or shame
- Say "yes" to "life-giving," not life-draining, activities
- Find joy and abundance, fulfillment and freedom, each day
When we can't, or won't, say "no," we become captive to our commitments instead of free to respond to God's invitations. Here is your chance to say no to others' obligations and yes to the One who will rejuvenate your weary soul. Will you say "yes"?
My thoughts: It is so easy to get caught up in wanting to help with all the ministries that are available at one's church. To over extend oneself and turn jobs that used to bring you joy into just another commitment that drains your time and energy. This book is for those of you who can't say no when asked to help. I appreciated the stories and honesty that the author used to get her point across. I know I have a hard time with peer pressure, so the chapter on it especially helped me.
This book is a wonderful resource!
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
