Book Review - Same Life, New Story

About the Book
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. Chapters include:

*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 *The last chapter has not been written yet

My Take on the Book
This book does an amazing job at allowing the reader to reinvet their own life into something new and amazing. It makes you want to let go of the past and to instead live a life that is more spiritually centered - living the way that God wants. While this book was geared toward women, I found the book to be interesting and motivational. Through the use of bible stories of women such as Mary, Ruth and others to juxtapose the stories of present day women.

The book sends a powerful message to women about the things you should do in your life to live in a Godly way, and things to remove from your life to simplify and center yourself. The book was a great resource in self-improvement and with the addition of scripture, you are getting the best of both worlds.

So if you are ready to change your life in a positive and meaningful way, then this book is the one for you! You will not be disappointed!
