The Life Ready Woman by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Louis

 Do you ever wonder how you can do everything and do it well? Does it seem like it's hard to be a modern woman and still live life from a biblical perspective?   Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis address the issues that modern woman face; issues that are completely different than those our female ancestors faced. With so many opportunities available to woman today, we can do almost anything we want. But, we need to be sure we are following the plan God has provided each of us. This book  reminds us that you can never really "have it all" - something will suffer. Most women are torn between jobs and family.  The authors are careful to include information for woman at all stages of life from single to widowed and make sure to give examples for these different stages.
 I would recommend this book to every woman, it is a book that should be reread occasionally, to keep it fresh in your mind what Gods plan is for you.

The Bridge of Peace, by Cindy Woodsmall

I'd never had the opportunity to read any of the books by Cindy Woodsmall, so I didn't have any idea on what to expect. I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised to find that she is an excellent writer. Her story flows from one person to another very well, with it all intertwining into a wonderfully beautiful story that leaves you glad you took the time to read it.
This book is 2nd in Ada's House series, and takes up where The Hope of Refuge ends. I see there is also another book coming out this fall and I plan on reading the whole series.

If you enjoy a good book, you won't be disappointed.

The Real Skinny on Losing it, by Michelle McKinney Hammond

True Confessions and Devine Revelations of a former Yo-Yo Dieter
Tyndale House Publishers

I enjoyed the way the author, Michelle McKinney Hammond, made the book interesting, and the way she explained her struggle with weight and why she felt that women have the problem. I did feel that she kept the writing light, and made you feel she was right there with you on the yo-yo diet wagon. Her "Keeping it Real" comments were exceptionally right on target.
