My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book.  It's written in an casual, conversational style but has lots of solid biblical based teaching for women. Truths that never change but offered in a contemporary way for our everyday issues.   Hitting on twelve areas that all women deal with at some point, the author leads us to finding our answers in the Lord and connecting to Him and to our sisters in Christ.  Each chapter is followed by a short study that further encourages the reader to dig into the Word for themselves and make it real in their own lives.  I liked how each chapter brought nuggets of truth that created more of a desire to search out the scriptures for myself for what God was saying to me about the different areas.

Thank you to B&B Media Group for the book for review.

Sounds like a really useful book, Susanne. Thanks for your review.

To answer your question on the Wimsey entry I posted the other day, the children (from left to right) are aged 6, 9, and 8. They do look like triplets, don't they? Such nice nice kids. I'll miss them.
