Publishers Description
"SHE" provides women with a fresh and unique perspective on many of the hot issues women face today. Twenty-something single recording artist Rebecca St. James teams up with forty-something radio talk show host and mother of three Lynda Hunter Bjorklund to present a multigenerational look at why women feel out of control and vulnerable. SHE helps women understand how they can be safe, healthy, and empowered as they find their identity and security in God.

From Publishers Weekly
According to St. James, a Grammy award-winning artist, and Hunter-Bjorklund, a radio talk show host and founding editor of Single-Parent Family magazine, today's Christian woman should be proud to be termed a "SHE"-the authors' acronym for Safety, Health and Empowerment. Both authors believe it's now time to redefine feminism, and they employ the rather unimaginative term "new feminism" to describe their goal: to enable Christian women to move beyond daily stresses and rediscover the fulfilling life God intended all along. There was a time when evangelicals dared not mention the word "empowerment" for fear of being associated with New Age philosophies, but here the word connotes having what it takes and is considered a necessary resource for success. Using a mixture of homespun advice, biblical characters and cleverly designed questions and answers, the authors cover such timeless subjects as protection, intimacy, femininity, beauty, purity, freedom, mentorship, boundaries and purpose. Only the chapters on feminism and beauty provide a more novel approach to these timeworn topics, yet even these sections resort to hokey word plays such as describing the inner transformation from defeated Bathsheba to BathSHEba, the "safe, healthy, and empowered" biblical figure who repented of her sins. Although fans of St. James will likely flock to this book, most of its content rehashes familiar material. (Nov.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about SHE (Safe Healthy Empowered)?

wow  Dec 23, 2005
....a huge disappointment. I choose to be anonymous because I am a St. James fan but I do NOT agree with the things she says in this book. In this book she's close-minded and ignorant about the realities of the world. She should spend more time in a secular university then in an ingenuous bible school if she wants to gain knowledge that'll impact the world.
 
Not what it Promises, but Certainly Not Horrible  Sep 12, 2005
I agree with another reviewer who said this book would be good for new believers. Beyond that, it just doesn't lack personality and is really no different than any Christian self-help book for women. While I agree that the message may ultimately be the same, Rebecca St. James is supposed to be good at delivering that message in a slightly unique way and in that area, this book fell flat. I think women can handle much more depth than this and as far as the "new definition of feminism" this book is supposed to offer, I didn't see anything "new". People don't need to be reminded of statistics, they just want something real to apply to their lives. The double authorship makes me wonder if St. James really even wrote any of it, or just got to stick her name on there because of who she is. Her devos were awesome, but after that her other books just haven't packed the same punch.
 
An Extremely "OK" Book....  Sep 8, 2005
After Rebecca's fantastic "40 days With God" devotional serise, and then her "Wait For Me" book and journal release...I was hopeful of something spectacular. Unfortunately, I found SHE to be dissapointing. It seemed as though Rebecca (who I love!) and Linda just released a book that re-packaged what every Self-empowerment/Singles book has already said.
I've been reading chistian living books for a decade now, and I found SHE to be extremely unoriginal. I would however, give a copy of SHE to a young women who perhaps just became a Christian...just to get her thinking. So, if you are new to your faith and are looking for a book to help you get on track...this would be great for you. But, if you are like myself and have read the likes of Leslie Ludy, Janet Folger and Elizabeth Elliot...you may find this book very remedial and even funny at times...as I did.
Overall, not a great release for Rebecca, in my opinion. However I hope that this book will help as may people as possible.
 
A Must Read  May 28, 2005
I think this book should be required reading for every woman. It deals with so many important issues. Issues which a lot of people are afraid to touch with a ten foot pole. I very much appreciate the honesty and transparency of the authors in this book. I have struggled with so many of the same issues. The advice in this book is practical and most of all, biblical. This book is very convicting and will give you a lot to think about. The chapters that were most challenging for me personally were the ones on feminity and purity. I think women of all ages would benefit from reading this book.
 
Awesome! Every Woman Should Read This!   Mar 6, 2005
This was an awesome book. It goes into detail of three important factors every woman should have in life. She should be Safe, Healthy, and Empowered.

The safety part of the book goes into detail about how as women we search for protection, security, intamacy and femininity as it should be. We all know that we long to be held in a safe and secure place in our lives. And we can have that safe and security with Jesus Christ. Rebecca and Linda goes into discussion of the things that we can do in our lives to become safe. Once we feel that we have come to a peace of being safe we need to face our intmacy issues. First of all we need to be intmate with God and spend more time with him. Rebecca and Linda illustrates great ideas in ways that we can achieve this.

The healthy part of the book goes into detail about how beauty is more than skin deep. There is a quiz in this section to see how you view yourself and to give you pointers to assist you to raise your self-esteem. This chapter also reveals about purity and emotional healing. I feel that this was the most helpful chapter to me. I have been struggling with the question can God forgive me for making past mistakes. Rebecca and Linda answered my question in this chapter. God is a loving and forgiving God. He has forgiven us of our sins no matter how big or small they are. Because all sin is just sin in his eyes no matter how big or small. This book has touched my heart and I know that it can touch yours too. I highly recommend this book to other young ladies and of course I feel that every woman should read this book. It will help you to answer many questions you have for yourself when seeking God's help in living a Godly life as the woman he has created you to be.

The empowerment section of this book was excellent. It helps you to see the steps of becoming the woman that God has created us to be. This section is dealing with the spiritual needs for women. We need help along the way to fulfilling our purpose. It starts out with explaining what a mentor really means and how much we need mentors at an early age in life. Because one day we will become a mentor for someone else if we aren't already. It also goes into discussion of building boundaries as christians so that the enmy can not just walk-in when he feels like it.

This book is a very awesome and wonderfully written book. I know that I will read this book over and over. Maybe one day I can hand it down to my daughter, so that she can see the woman that God created her to be.

Rebecca and Linda use scripture through out the book and refers to stories of women in the Bible. How God used the women in the Bible to become SHE's as he wants us to be. I highly recommend this book. This book touched my heart in more ways than I can describe and I know that God will use it to work in your life as well. May God Bless You and Walk with You along your way of becoming the SHE he created you to be.
