Many of us live hectic lives because we haven t learned how to say no.
As Christian women, most of us want to please those around us. After all, doesn t being a servant of Christ mean that we should say yes as often as possible to those who beg our favor?
Ramona Cramer Tucker says in her article Just Say No ! : The reality is, we re afraid of letting people down even if we re driving ourselves crazy with activities. It s no surprise that no seems like a four-letter word we must avoid at all costs. But no isn t a dirty word in fact, sometimes it s one of the healthiest things we can say.
