Learn, as Jan did firsthand, that changing your perspective can truly change your life. Within you lies a new story just begging to be told. What are you waiting for?

    Same Life, New story is a 10 week Bible Study. Each chapter looks at the life of a woman in the Bible. See your story through the eyes of: Naomi, Leah, Rachel, Rahab, and Deborah. See, as Hannah, Abigail, and Elizabeth did, the irreplaceable role that God longs to play in your life.

    I loved this book! As I read it I kept notes and answered some of the study questions. It is excellent for a women's bible study or for personal study.

    At the time of reading this book I was going through a 12 steps program to make many changes in my life and break habits and this book was an added bonus. God gave me a vision and it really encouraged me to make some changes.

    If you are wanting to change your life, not just by yourself but with God, then read this book!

    It will change your life!

    I plan to use this book in the future for women's ministry.

    Have you ever been tired of living the same old life? Have you ever been through difficult circumstances and feel that there is nothing you could do about it? Have you ever find yourself wishing for the might-have-beens instead of looking forward to what can be?

    Jan Silvious' Same Life, New Story tackles these very issues and challenges women to break out from the old, from the norm. Instead of allowing our lives to be overtaken by the emotions that so often arise from our circumstances, she reminds us that things could be different by the way we allow our story to be scripted; proven by the women in the Bible known for their persistence, resilience and faith.

    Drawing upon stories of the women of the Bible (ranging from the more well known ones such as Elizabeth and Naomi to the lesser known Jehosheba and Naaman's servant girl), there is a particular lesson to learn from every individual character. It's also interesting the way she uses the stories of real people that are inspiring and a good reminder that we are never alone.

    The whole book is a reminder that our circumstances should not determine our past, present and future. Whatever it is, there is always a chance for a new story to be written. What I like about most is that she occasionally writes that God is the Author and we are His subjects; bringing the focus off ourselves and on Him who is worthy of our all.

    Although I would not consider this as a life-changing or an extremely thought-provoking book, I would still recommend it to anyone. We all need to be reminded of the things we 'already know' but are not doing. We may all have the ‘same life', but a fresh start is always there for anyone who needs one and is ready to call on Him for it.

    Same Life, New Story by Jan Silvious started off slow for me for I feared it was going to repeat Bible stories that I already knew. It quickly caught my attention, though, as the author wove her personal story into the stories of Naomi, Leah, and others. Using a theatrical theme and stories from women in the Bible, the author shows us, in ten lessons, the importance of perspective. I really enjoyed it and have recommended it to others who have enjoyed it as well.

    Thomas Nelson Publishers provided a complimentary copy of this book for my review. The opinions are my own and I have not been required to publish a positive review.

    This book is excellent for anyone going through life transition or changes and for those who may face them {which is everyone}. I love the way she very practically applies psychological intertwined with Biblical principals. Great stuff!
