Move from what is to what can be by changing how you think and talk to yourself.
Using powerful character studies of ten women from Scripture, as well as modern-day stories from her work as a professional life coach, Bible teacher Jan Silvious helps women choose new stories instead of dumping, or wallowing in, their old lives.
Naomi, Leah, Rahab, Deborah, Hannah, Anna, Jehosheba, Abigail, Naaman's servant girl, and Elizabeth round out the cast of characters who, with their own stories, help readers find new perspectives with amazing results.
~Realize it's time
~Don't be held hostage by the past
~Ask yourself good questions
~Change your "I can't" to "I can"
~Delete the drama of the day
~Forget the "What might have beens"
~Discover the power of wisdom and courage
~Get past the resistance of fear
~Choose to bounce back

My Thoughts: I haven't read a book for so long unless you count kids books, which is a lot. I was so happy to get a book like this to review. It was such a great book due to all the amazing material there was in it. This lovely book had one great lesson after another that really helped in so many ways. This amazing 10 week bible study which I read a lot faster due to not being able to put it down. It made me realize that I can't always control what is happening or going to happen, but on how to handle things better. The author reminds us that God is in control of our life situations and the only thing we can control is our attitude on these situations and how we handle them. We can accept what happens to use, learn from it and became a stronger person on the other side.
