Have you ever felt like every woman around you, every wife, every mother, has it ‘all together’? I think that we have all felt that way at one time or another. In reality no one has it ‘all together’ but sometimes I think we try so hard to do this and as we try to balance it all, we find ourselves drowning and we lose sight of what is important and how to live well.
Courtney Joseph has written, what I believe, are God inspired words in her book Women Living Well. We seem to find time to check out what is going on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or pin the latest fads onto our Pinterest boards, but do we put forward that same effort and interest in running to the living well and opening THE Book to find what our Heavenly Father has posted in His Word for us? That is where it starts and from there we can start living well in our marriages, families, and homes. No one is perfect, but we are all on a journey towards living well. That is what this book is about. It is about finding that balance. It is about evaluating our walk with God, our marriage, our children, and our homemaking. It is about desiring to be women who live well. Women who run to the living well for a drink of the living water.
Courtney gives her readers practical tips that are based on Biblical principles to help us become women living well. Life is not about having it ‘all together’. It is about living well in the world we live in with God at the very center of it all. Isn’t that something we all strive for?
It is something I strive for and truthfully I was floundering and feeling like I was drowning at times just before I read this book. Reading Women Living Well was a life giving gift to me. It has given me practical ways to make some changes in my life, positively affecting my relationship with God, my husband, my children and the haven I strive our home to be.
I feel like standing on the roof of my house and shouting out quotes from the book so that everyone will hear the wonderful things I have learned in reading this wonderful book.
