{Litfuse Blog Tour} The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World by Shaunti Feldhahn & 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.

God has given every wonderfully unique woman different skills and abilities, different desires, and different temperaments -- and every woman around the planet and through the ages is certainly living in different circumstances. But no matter what a woman’s life looks like, the Bible says that God has an individual mission and plan that He’s carefully designed for each of us. And He wants us to find it. Starting January 2011, The Life Ready Woman and the Life Ready Woman Video Series will help every wonderfully unique woman to thrive as she identifies and courageously pursues God's unique design and callings for her. LifeReady Woman puts you on a roadmap to make decisions that will lead to relief, delight, and fulfillment instead of regret.

My Review

I must admit that I am still reading this book. But, I consider this a good thing! I don't want to miss one thing that Shaunti and Robert have written! I'm fairly skeptical about a lot of books like this one, only because most of them are full of stuff that would be nice if I lived in a make-believe world or because most of them don't apply to me/my situation. However, I am finding this book to be most informative and I think helpful. In fact, I almost wish I had something like it when I was trying to juggle a job, raise children and be a wife, and be a woman of God and..... You get the idea.

One of the things about this book I like is it actually addresses the issues every woman deals with today while trying to be what God has called them to be. On page 37 is a list of typical problems that women deal with today... I know how many I circled, how many will you? The great aspect of this though, as long as you're honest with yourself and with God, there is healing and growing in all of it. Shaunti and Robert lay out some very practical steps of wisdom to apply. 

Like I said in the beginning, I am still reading this book. But once I am done with it, I will be sharing what I have learned with my daughters and daughter-in-law.
