bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Good encouragement to choose the bestDecember 20, 2014bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4We make scores of decisions every day. TerKeurst wants to help us change our approach to decision making. She wants us to honor God with our time. "How we spend our souls matters." (62)
She asks us to identify that soul thing, that God honoring thing that keeps slipping away because we are so pressed for time. She helps us understand what "discerning what it best" (Phil. 1:9-10) means, involving knowledge, insight and wisdom. She asks us to assess our day and encourages scheduling.
She helps us with decision making in general, the fears, why there are no perfect decisions, dealing with our expectations, saying "no", having a growth mind-set instead of a fixed one, and what to do when the decision doesn't seem to be working for you (do the next right thing right in front of you).
"We will steer where we stare," she writes. (91) So stare at God.
At the end of the book is a sort of Appendix, a decision tool, that helps the reader form a method of making the Best Yes decisions.
This is a great book for women who feel overwhelmed by all to which they have said yes. It is a very timely book as Christians are being distracted by so many "good" possibilities. Choosing the best takes discernment and TerKeurst's book helps the reader understand how to make those necessary decisions without feeling guilty. A very readable and recommended book.
Food for thought:
"Wisdom is either displayed or betrayed by our actions." (230)
"There is a big difference between saying yes to everything and saying yes to God." (163)
Tiffany I.5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful & encouraging read!December 10, 2014Tiffany I.Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I'm so glad that this book crossed my path! My only regret is that I didn't purchase this book earlier. I admire the sweet biblical truth that Lysa shares within these pages. I have also had the pleasure of reading "Made to Crave" & "Unglued" by Lysa, and this particular book was just as powerful, eye-opening & meaningful. I value that fact that she shares her personal stories, struggles, and perspectives when making a "Best Yes" decision. This book is more than just analyzing the power of a simple 'yes' or 'no'. It's also very encouraging to read about how we can make a "Best Yes" decision that pleases God, and not just people.

I have to say that this is one of the top studies I have ever taken or lead. It is so freeing to know how to graciously say no, validating the person you wish you did not have to disappoint and then moving on. How wonderful to learn how to discern the best yes in all decisions, because the choices you make, make you!!!!!! So many of the ladies in our group were amazed at how simple and honest it is to simply listen to the Holy Spirit at work in you when you are asked to do anything. I wish it would be taught in every girls high school Sunday class or youth group.
