Your Sacred Yes: Trading Life-Draining Obligation for Freedom, Passion, and Joy by Susie Larson

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:
This book helped me slow down and prioritize what is important. I recommend this book. I would suggest to get an actual book, to highlight and make notes on it. That's what I did to my book. Then when I need a reminder I can look over my important (to me) high lights and notes. It was an eye opener for me and to enjoy my life with my family.

Note:  I was fortunate to be picked by Bethany House to receive this book and review it on my blog and on Amazon. These are my own honest opinion and I was not compensated for my review.

A Worthy Pursuit book review.

A teacher on the run. A bounty hunter in pursuit. Can two enemies learn to trust each other before they both lose what they hold most dear? Stone Hammond is the best tracker in Texas. He never comes home empty-handed. So when a wealthy railroad investor hires him to find his abducted granddaughter, Stone eagerly accepts. Charlotte Atherton, former headmistress of Sullivan's Academy for Exceptional Youths, will do anything to keep her charges safe, especially the orphaned girl entrusted to her care. Charlotte promised Lily's mother she'd keep the girl away from her unscrupulous grandfather, and nothing will stop Charlotte from fulfilling that pledge. Not even the handsome bounty hunter with surprisingly honest eyes who comes looking for them. When Miss Atherton produces documentation that shows her to be Lily's legal guardian, Stone must reevaluate everything he's been led to believe. Is she villain or victim? Then a new danger forces Charlotte to trust the man sent to destroy her. Stone vows to protect what he once sought to tear apart. Besides, he's ready to start a new pursuit: winning Charlotte's heart. My though: I read this book in the evening and by the next day I was done with it. I have never read any of the author's book and I will look for her other stories. I enjoyed reading this book, learning about Charlotte, Lily, Stephen, and John. She is a teacher to these three exceptional students. Then there is Stone. Can he be trusted? Can he see what is the truth and the lies? *This book was given to me from Bethany House for my reviews. I was given the book for free and these are my own thoughts and opinions. I was not paid to review this book.
