The Uncommon Woman: Making an Ordinary Life Extraordinary
January 31, 2015
The women's group I am in has been using this book. It is excellent and has helped me realize that God loves me & will guide me through the difficult situations I meet in life. I purchased 2 more books and gave them to my 2 grown daughters as Christmas gifts. This book is appropriate for all ages .
I don't usually read or like what I consider Christian self help or opinion. And generally stick to Christian classics or bible study books. However this is far from Christian opinion or fluff. Susie Larson's wisdom is strait from Scripture and hit home in my heart. I cannot describe how transforming the book has been. I've been posting excerpts on my facebook page and several friends have bought copies of the book because those posts have meant so much to them. It's a fabulous read! Expect to encounter Jesus in it's pages!
The Uncommon Woman is one of thee best books for woman I have ever read. And I do not say that lightly. I have read enough great books for women's living that I consider it hard to compete with the authors I have come to love; but Susie Larson has become a favorite of mine.This book challenges women to be uncommon and explains what that means and how to make it a reality in your own life. Each chapter is followed by several discussion questions and action steps that really probe the heart and soul. I enjoyed the honest and fresh look that Susie takes on subject we face every day in our lives as women. I appreciated her own examples and testimony and was encouraged greatly by them.While this book does not flow as well as some books do, and is actually hard to "get" without reading the whole book, it packs a punch for when you do read the whole thing. It digs deep and makes you think but in easy-to-grasp terms. The Uncommon Woman could easily be read in an afternoon - but you won't want to - you'll want to soak in this book and re-read portions as it encourages you to be the woman God wants you to be: the uncommon one. The one who is willing to live for Him, the one who is willing to bow down.You will walk away from this book, as I did, with a renewed desire to live the extraordinary life rather than the ordinary one the world says is so good.
