Own Your Life
Own Your Life: Living with Deep Intention, Bold Faith, and Generous Love by Sally Clarkson is a great book for the new year. Many people are looking for a fresh start in the new year, and reading this book is a good place to start. The description reads:
"Do you ever long for days full of joy and energy—days that bring out the best version of you rather than leave you exhausted? Do you sometimes catch yourself wishing life was more impactful and fulfilling? In a world that’s moving so fast, it’s easy to lose your sense of purpose. So now is the time to make each moment of your ordinary, everyday, beautiful existence count. It’s time to own your life.
Sally Clarkson’s Own Your Life is a breath of fresh air into the life and soul of a busy woman. Like a faithful friend, Sally journeys with you to explore what it means to live meaningfully, follow God truly, and bring much-needed order to your chaos. Each page offers deeply personal, authentic, and practical guidance to help you build an intentional life. Discover what it means to own your life, and dare to trust God’s hands as He richly shapes your character, family, work, and soul."
Own Your Life is the latest in a line of books designed for soul-weary and work-weary women. I'm enjoying this trend of books that are designed not to give women a list of tasks to do, but give them permission to just "be" in the presence of the Savior. Clarkson's book is easily read and full of rich wisdom drawn from many years as a Christian. I enjoyed soaking in the information and advice given in this book, and recommend it to every Christian woman.
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Blog Network in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
