The author is a highly successful millennial author, blogger, and CEO of a big company. She has pulled herself up by the boot straps and gone from small potatoes to a really big spud. Her message seems to be resonating with a GREAT MANY other millenniums.
I started her book, from page one, with a jaded opinion because of her age. I must admit, there were some real pearls of wisdom in the pages, though much of it I only gave the quick scan. Rachel is a believer and refers to this quite a few times in the book. I was disappointed that she did not feel like every thing she addressed could not be answered through the filter of The Gospel. NOW, I know a much larger number of readers can be reached with a more secular approach to the information. I know this book is a self help book meant for a wide spectrum of readers. My bias should not influence or keep anyone else from at least giving the book a glance over. Perhaps it will really speak to you.
My AHA MOMENT was there is a great deal of difference in the season of young mothers/professionals and retired seniors/grandmothers. I can promise you many of the books that speak to me would not resonate with a 30 something. THERE YOU GO---God has created us all different--many of us are in different seasons of life. What speaks to me--may not speak to you and vice versa. So if I rate this book a "6", you might rate it a "10". The author is an excellent writer, holds your attention, and gets her point across. She is speaking though from a season that I passed through long ago.
SO--I am thankful for every season God places us in. I am thankful for mentors, life coaches, counselors or anyone else who speaks truth about the season you find yourself. I am thankful for young women who are thinking, discussing, and working for a better life and world. The media would have us to believe we are all headed down the slippery slope, but I see great hope as the generations behind search for answers and work to improve the world we have been gifted with. Don't follow my recommendation or lack thereof, instead decide for yourself if this is a book you can learn from.
For as in one body we have many members,
and the members do not all have the same function,
so we, though many, are one body in Christ,
and individually members one of another
. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us,
let us use them
