Today is the 2nd day of the A-Z April blogging challenge. For B, I chose the book The Best Yes. I read this book over a year ago. This book is really good at making you think about what is important. There are so many things out there that are good to do, but is it the best that you can do or is there something else that you should be doing. We do not have to say yes to everything out there. As a women, mother, and teacher sometimes I think that we have the impression that we have to do it all. If we don’t say yes and get it done, then no one will take the time to do it.
From Amazon “Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul?
Lysa TerKeurst is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In The Best Yes she will help you:
- Cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love.
- Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no.
- Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom based decision-making process.
- Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your best yes today.”
I know for me, this is a message that I will need to hit every couple of years.
