For Christian Women in Their 30's Jan 29, 2007
Wanting All the Right Things by Shirin Taber is a well written book for Christian women between 18 and 35 years of age. Taber describes the difficult and unfair position this third generation of liberated women have been assigned. It is not only impossible to fulfill all the dreams and rights they were born to but it is unhealthy to strive to. No one can be a high powered executive, a perfect homemaker and mother, a volunteer citizen and a sane and healthy person at the same time. Taber helps women realize and make healthy choices and goals which are attainable without burn-out and break-down.
Excellent book exploring what women really want - and need Oct 13, 2006
Being a baby boomer I read the first couple chapters and almost decided not to read it...until I got to chapter two...then I read it straight through! Women over 40 can benefit hugely from reading this book! It is insightful, thought-provoking, and challenging for the mentor-aged woman to get in touch with the younger generation of women seeking to find themselves and their place in today's society. Shirin's recounting of her own and others' personal journey, struggles and victories and the 'handles' she gives to identifying every woman's quest are sure to touch a chord in whatever generation you are. The insight questions for each chapter and discussion questions in the back of the book are ideal for exploring the spiritual truths identified throughout the book and to help us explore our minds and hearts - and God's heart for us - in a meaningful and practical way. Kudos, Shirin!!! Helen D - Aliso Viejo, CA
