Yawn!!! Aug 25, 2008
I've only read a few chapters of this book so far....I am really trying to give it a fair chance, but every time I start reading this book my eyes get heavy. I will say though that I do enjoy the Pit Thoughts Versus His Thoughts sections. I just finished one of Joel Osteen's books prior to reading this one, which was so inspiring I couldn't put the book down! I am going to try to read a few more chapters of this book before making a decision whether or not to keep on reading. But so far I'm bored.
What Women Want ? Jul 28, 2008
It is odd... I got to a question in the beginning of the book which took me a week to ponder on: What do I want/desire and what do I expect to get out of this study? My goodness I think I wrote half a journal. I am sure these ladies did not expect anyone to ponder that hard over it.
While we maintain to express ourselves that it is all about God and not about me, we too maintain by our own mouths the contradiction, which would say to me... IT IS ALL ABOUT ME AND HOW WE TRY TO USE GOD TO GET WHAT WE WANT.
Then I get to the second long pause: standing in front of a mirror and saying aloud over and over: i am this exceptional creation of God or phenomenal creation, either way I think God is phenomenal and I know everything He creates is phenomenal, but honestly this Hype is way to uplifting for me... it seems to promote a pride in us or increase the pride already there. Whatever happened to Humble Servant??
So, forcing myself to read on and hearing what others want I started another journal: what exactly does God want/desire and shouldn't we be more interested in Him rather than ourselves??
For me it should be titled: Self Seeking and How God can give us over to our own Desires.
Yet, if you really want to learn how to Love Yourself... go for it.
Don't be upset... it is only a review.
Great For A Women's Bible Study May 26, 2008
Ha! Wouldn't every man on planet earth like to know that! Hmmm... As a woman I'd like to know too. Sometimes we are so deep and intricate that we can't figure ourselves out. Usually, it isn't until you sit down with a friend to talk about it that you figure out what really is inside of you. What it is that you really do want.
That is what Lisa Bergren and Rebecca Price have done for us. They talked to many women and asked questions to get to the heart of their longings and desires. They probed to find the answer to What Women Want.
In this book you will find excerpts from the interviews of many women who have the same concerns, desires, questions, and heartache as you. Then listen to practical advice and receive loving support from these women and they address the issues deep in the heart of a woman.
Complete with devotions and study questions, this book is a fabulous resource to add to any library and would be wonderful to use as a launching pad for a women's bible study. There are also interviews with women like: Kay Arthur, Shaunti Feldhahn, Liz Curtis Higgs, and Barbara Rainey.
Wonderful book to keep coming back to. Jan 14, 2008
I am reading this book for the 3rd time in the last year. I love this book. It really makes me feel good about myself and helps me to connect with God. I am honestly suprised at the low ratings on this book. I guess to each his own. I think it is a great read and I really enjoy it.
Great Group Bible Study Tool! Nov 14, 2007
I just finished using Lisa Bergren and Rebecca Price's What Women Want for a Bible study for the women at my church. We had 45 women in our study and everyone enjoyed every minute of this book! The book begins by establishing that we are all "phenomenal creations of God," and this was quite eye opening for many of our women. Several of them had a hard time saying that aloud, but by the end of the study, they were all ready to shout it out! This study brought our women closer to one another and closer to God. It covers everything from our relationship to the Father to body image and relationships. There is something for every woman in your church body! If you're looking for your next women's study, look no further. I promise that your group will love this book!
