Book Review: Same Life, New Story

I am so excited! I completed my first book to review. The most amazing thing is that I will forever remember this book as my first one blogger book review and how it personally impacted me. 

Same Life, New Story book

Same Life, New Story by Jan Silvious is a 10-week Bible Study for Women.  I loved the women in the bible stories that Jan Silvious chose to make her point.  There was Esther (my personal favorite), Naomi, Hannah, Leah, Deborah and even ones I wasn’t too familiar with like Jehosheba, Anna, and Naamon’s servant girl. Each one of these women left a legacy because of their willingness to take risks and change their life story.  While the biblical stories in the book helped me think about the way my own personal story is being written, I especially liked the modern stories that were included as well.  I am glad that the author chose to include parallel’s to the biblical women heroes with modern women heroes.

The personal reflection and group discussion questions were helpful at the end of each chapter.  It makes a great option for one to complete the book on their own (like I did) or with a group.  As you complete each personal reflection, it allows you to dig deep within your soul and to pull out the weeds that are inhibiting your own personal growth to develop a positive new story for your life. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.  I loved the way it made me think. It made me think about my own life and gave me a fresh look at how God is the author of my story.
