Book Review--Graceful by Emily P. Freeman

The premise of this book is identifying which "good girl" voice we listen to, its dangers, and how to overcome.

Although targeted for young women, the book can resonate with women in general.  Looking at themselves at this age can bring a new healing.

The author's personal account of herself at this age provided a light-heartedness to a difficult subject--where and why one hides.  Her candor provided a sensitivity to the subject where one became vulnerable to introspection.  Rather than being judgmental or presenting herself as the possessor of the answers, she accurately pointed the reader to the solution--Jesus.

Her ability to accurately distinguish good behavior and a personal relationship with Jesus is noteworthy.  The reader is left knowing that good behavior is not the ultimate goal of  a Christian, but rather a life lived based upon the continual dependence and hiding in Jesus is.

I would recommend this book for personal or small group study for young ladies and women.

  2. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

  3. Certainly, the involving French music is inextricably linked to the cafes as well as music halls where
    popular music designs like musette and also chanson were originally
    carried out. Actually, the ad featured U2's Original of the Species from the Vertigo: Live From Chicago DVD. The B-52's - Love Shack
    This party favorite is a pop classic from the 90s which combines the B-52's trademark lyrical kookiness and some jangly guitars with a solid beat and some funky decoration.

  4. ll see much better results with this diet plan than you would with others that use some generic formula to calculate your nutrient needs.

    Yes we would like muscle, but in the right way, and gaining lean muscle without fat is the key to doing this.
    No make a difference what sort of fat coaching regimen
    you.

  6. Mariah also holds the distinction of being the only female vocalist who has had three
    singles debut at the number one position.
    Martin Solveig & Dragonette-"Hello" (Dada Life remix).
