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.

This Mom’s Review & Giveaway [Ends 03/10/11]:
This book is a keeper. When I first selected the book, I thought I’d be getting the reminder of where my priorities should be. You know, 1st – God, 2nd – husband, etc…
I’ve always tried to number (or rank) my priorities… God first, hubby second, children third, home fourth, and not ever sure where to place my health or other things such as extended family and outside ministries.
Well, the author fixed my problem and I will no longer number these priorities! Instead, I will use her biblical advise to align my life with God’s plan and purpose for me. Shaunti shows us how to weave them into whatever season of life we’re in.
What I Like Most About The Book:
- I was given a clear road map to following God’s plan and purpose for my life, including the What, When, Where, How, and Why.
- I saw that even thought I can’t do it all right now, there is a time and place for most of the things I want or feel called to do in this life time.
- I realized the importance of using my earthly life for eternal purpose, seeing how some of what I currently do is just a waste of the time and resources on loan to me from God.
- I found some things in the book that do not agree with my current beliefs. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It has prompted me to dig into the Bible to find the truth, so that I can either change my beliefs to match God’s truth or know that what I do believe is biblical.
- That the voices of the book includes both male and female. I learned some things from a man’s perspective, which will hopefully help me in relating to my hubby.
This is definitely my new favorite book in the department of priorities and life/time management!
