Publisher's Description

No one wants to be labeled a whiner, but many of us go through life with a "poor me," victim mentality that sounds a whole lot like whining. God never intended for us to act like "little girls," says Jan Silvious. His goal is for each of us to live as "big girls"-mature Christian women-who are capable of enjoying the richness of life He has planned.

In Big Girls Don't Whine, Jan helps women:

  • Move beyond the past and on to healthy relationships, 
  • Choose to be proactive rather than let life just "happen,"
  • Discover their full potential,
  • And become everything He made them to be.

So how can we tell if we're living life as an immature 'little girl" or a confident "big girl?"

A little girl…

  • Is insecure
  • Becomes the victim of circumstances
  • Says "I can't"
  • Manipulates

A big girl…

  • Is secure
  • Rests in God's sovereignty
  • Says, "I can"
  • Communicates

In Big Girls Don't Whine, Jan Silvious calls us to be real women in a real world, free to experience a life of full of potential and vision. This book is the how-to manual for making it happen.

    This review was written for Big Girls Don't Whine.
    I recommend this book for women who find themselves facing mid-life. I often wondered why I feel they way I do. I think we have to mature alittle before we find our way home to God. He knows the right time to hlep us recover from past wounds and and handle difficulties in life. If you find yourself entering midlife have have questions about yourself and your relationships, please get this book. It has helped me so much. I'm looking forward to new books by Jan. I feel that I'm starting to answers to things I've often wondered about myself. Glad to a Big Girl.

    This is a book that every woman should read, especially Christian women. Every woman should definitely read it before marriage so they don't whine the first 5 years like I did. It really helped me to pray more and think before I speak.

    This review was written for Big Girls Don't Whine.
    I really enjoyed this book. Jan accurately dipicted what I had been going through and all of the lessons God has been trying to teach me through the past years of crisis in my life. I used this book this year to give a workshop at our women's retreat. The issues of growing up are universal. I also recommend this book to men, because everyone needs to make a healthy assessment of our behavior.
