Are you a 'Doing it all' or 'Do what matters' woman?
No matter what our roles in life are, as modern women we often find ourselves trying to figure out how to manage our busy lives. As Christian women, we turn to the Bible for guidance. But sometimes it can be hard to find the answers, since life today is much different from what it was back then. It's often hard to find chapter and verse that can be applied to our current situations.
In The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World, Shaunti Feldhan, with Robert Lewis, shows Christian women how they can live an abundant life while keeping a Biblical perspective. She shows us how we can live God's best for our lives and find the peace and balance we all desire.
I found this book refreshing. I often shy away from books that give life advice because I find that they are often written with only one type of person in mind, or that they are trying to create one type of person. But Shaunti Feldhahn realizes that this isn't what God wants, He wants us to live our own lives to the fullest.
Shaunti presents the three types of calling and design that help us to understand what we were created to be. The first is Core Callings, our callings and design as human beings made in God's image. The second is Feminine Callings, our callings and design as women. The third is Personal Callings, our callings and design as unique individuals.
From there, Shaunti shows us how we can determine what our callings are and how to live them out. What I liked most about the book is that she examines this from the perspective of the different life seasons. Whether you are a single woman, a mother, or a widow, young or old, she will help you develop your callings and design to suit where you currently are.
As women today we face pressure from everywhere to do it all. But when we look at our lives we see that it's not really possible. If you're struggling with trying to do it all this book will help you take a look at your life, what you need to focus on right now, and how to live your life so that you feel like you're thriving instead of just surviving.
