The Life Ready Woman

Do you ever feel like you’re drowning trying to do it all?  I do! 

Things are so different for women living today.  The world tells us we can “have it all” but is that really possible?

God has a special plan for each of our lives…the question is, are you following that plan? 

How do you manage a career AND being a mother if God has called you to do BOTH?

How do you focus on being the wife God has called you to be while being the mother He has called you to be at the same time?

How do you focus on your career, your family AND using your gifts to serve the Lord?

I don’t have the answers…I have struggled with each of those questions at different times in my life.

How would you like to be “ready” for a life that leads to peace and enjoyment rather than stress and regret?

Have I got a book for you!

“The Life Ready Woman” by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis

the life ready woman

Most of us know Shaunti from her bestselling book “For Women Only” and Robert Lewis is one of Bryan’s FAVORITE authors!!!  He’s the founder of Men’s Fraternity and his insight in this book is beyond valuable!

Whether a stay at home; or working mom, an airplane-hopping executive, an empty-nester caring for multiple generations or a single juggling high demands of career and personal life, today’s fast-paced modern world leaves women gasping for balance. We as modern Christian women want to look to the Bible for guidance on how to manage our lives — but because the world of women looks so different today than it did when the Bible was written, it is hard to find chapter and verse that seems to apply to our situation today.

Thankfully, God has given us exactly that timeless, unchanging guidance for how to find peace, clarity, and God’s best for our lives once we know where to look! The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World, reveals a profound biblical roadmap for how each of us can find the abundant life we are longing for, rather than the stressful, torn, how-do-I-balance-it-all life we often feel like we are trying to keep up with today. Actually being a LifeReady Woman means that you are clear about your life, bold in your faith, and able to find God’s best for you, and the end result will be that you not only survive but thrive in our do-it-all world.

I am so excited for you to read this!!  And just to prove it to you, I’m giving away a copy!  Woo Hoo!! 

Just leave me a comment telling me what problems you struggle with the most. 

Maybe for some it’s time management…maybe for others it’s really trusting God…maybe it’s really loving your husband….maybe it’s what to do with the rest of your life now that your children have left the nest…or maybe you feel like a failure as a mother and a woman of God. 

What ever your struggle may be, this book covers it all.  Don’t forget to leave a comment on this blog post (not on FB) to be entered to win.  Drawing will be Wednesday night at 10:00pm (CST).

Until next time,

  1. I struggle with feeling like I am always letting someone down. Kind of like I am trying to catch rain in a colander. Things just keep getting past me. Somtimes it is the little things that really don't matter, but sometimes it is the important things.

  2. I am struggling with doing it all. With Jason deployed right now and all responsibility on me, I am having a hard time finding a balance and feeling like I can really do everything fully…in the end I feel like I am letting the kids down.

  3. I was going to list all my struggles, but I think there's just too many to post! The balance struggle seem ever-present for me. I'd love to prioritize weekly time to date my hubby, weekly time to focus on my older daughter (who doesn't seem to get enough of my time these days), time to help friends more, and also, selfishly, time for me.

  4. I struggle with guilt. I'm guilty for being on the computer right now as I know there is a list of chores I need to be up doing, but this is the only time of the day when I can sit down. I struggle with feeling self-worth because I base my worth on what I accomplish in a day…what I can 'see' that I have accomplished. I struggle with energy and the battle of exercise; the knowing I 'should' do something, but can't find the time. I struggle with time…how best to spend it and be most productive. I guess it boils down to struggling with what I do being what I give though I feel I don't give enough in what I do. Didn't realize I struggle so much…lol, yet I guess I do. Stephanie Hatfield

  5. For those of you with iPods, Shaunti was on the Family Life Today podcast last week talking about this book. It seems like it would be a great small group study – hint hint!

    Also, her book “For Women Only” is a real eye-opener and a must read!

    I struggle with procrastination, laziness and selfishness. I have to “make” myself get up or go out and do what I need to do.

  6. I struggle with fully trusting god, as well as, feeling like a failure as a mother and a women of god. I also struggle with finances and time management. WOW so basically my whole lifes a mess and i'm not happy with any part of it other then having my son and his health and well being but i feel like i am not doing my best in raising him. I am doing it all alone and here in Alabama i have VERY LITTLE family and friends here to help in any way. I was attending a monthly mom to mom bible study group but have not made it in like 3 months and i am very disappointed with myself because i really loved the bible study and the women i met there. I didnt realize i struggled with so much.

  7. I struggle with balance and of course guilt. I don't feel like there is enough time to accomplish all I want to do in a day. Being a working mom I often feel the guilt of not being with the kids enough.

  8. Honestly…I had one of those weeks last week where I was feeling overwhelmed and was thinking how can I balance my world that seems so out of control while being a full time working mom and wife. How do I find a balance? Sometimes I feel like I'm in a whirlwind or my wheels are spinning, but I'm not getting it all done or going anywhere no matter how I try. It is hard to be a Wife, Mother, daughter, friend, etc. that God called me to be when “life” happens. So many distractions and so many things to do. What happened to just sitting for hours on the porch visiting with family that you haven't seen in years. Sadly, our children don't know most of our family because we are too busy to get to know them. I want a God centered simple life for me and my family! How do you get that? Yes, I've wondered exactly where that chapter is in the bible to help find that balance in my life today, so it sounds like this book will help answer some of those questions on balancing our busy crazy life. I'm ready for some clarity. I want to be all that God has called me to be, but I am a long way from that. I need answers and this might be His way of pointing them out to me. I want that peace and I certainly don't want any reqrets when I look back at my life one day. This book could be a answer to my prayers.
