Book Review: Same Life, New Story

Perhaps it's because of where I am on my life's journey, but I loved this book! It was so inspirational! Jan Silvious encourages all women – no matter where they are along the age spectrum – that they can change their lives simply by changing their perspective. Using the Biblical stories of Naomi, Leah, Rahab, Deborah, Hannah, Anna, Jehosheba, Abigail, Naaman’s servant girl, and Elizabeth, along with the personal experiences of modern-day women, Silvious shows us that we can either perish or flourish simply by the way we think about difficult situations. Everyone will face trials in their lives, but as Christian women, we can take heart knowing that God is the author of our lives, He sees the big picture, and He has plans to prosper us. This compelling Bible Study includes questions for personal reflection, journal prompts, and questions for small-group discussion. After completing the entire study, I am excited to start living my new story. I am ready to step out in faith and say “yes” to God’s ultimate plan for my life. I recommend this book to any woman who is going through a tough time. You may be surprised at how motivating it truly is.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from the publisher's BookSneeze program in exchange for my honest review.
