I thought I would share a few books that have really encouraged me. Hopefully they will encourage you too!
I bought High Heels and Holiness after hearing Jo Saxton speak, and I’m so pleased that I did. It has really impacted my life: It encouraged me to find a mentor AND get out there and try Internet dating, which lead to me meeting my husband, so that can’t be bad! I also believe this book really fills a gap in then market.
There’s loads of books out there for Christian women who are married with children, well and truly settled into their adult lives, there’s also a load for teenage girls, but what any one in between these two stages in life?
I believe this book really fills that gap! It is perfect for women in their twenties looking for advice on how to live life well.
it covers issues often faced by women in this age group: relationships, marriage, sex, friendships, knowing that you are precious to God. Ok, I guess these topics are relevant to women of all ages, but the specifics really relate to women within this age bracket: My best friend from uni doesn’t want me as her bridesmaid any more; how to stay pure in relationships; expectations in friendships; how to be a team with your husband; fashion; the importance of finding a mentor and many others.
The really special thing is that this book was written by two women, one just out of her twenties, and one slightly older. This offered different perspectives on the topics covered. It also feels like you are listening in on a conversation between the two of them. At times they also shared thoughts from other women.
It is a very easy read, perfect to read right through, or just dip in and out of if your are looking for advice on a certain subject.
The bottom line? This book had a positive impact on my life and I would recommend it to any woman in her twenties (or there about) and even to anyone who has much to do with women iPod this age.
Hope you enjoyed my first review, thanks for taking the time to read it.
