Publisher's Description

You were created for a purpose, and it's time to make it happen.

Make It Happen is the story of how I surrendered my fear, took the leap, and got a life. In my case, a perfectly imperfect, fulfilling life as a mama, a working woman, and a grateful wife. This is the story of how I chose to make "it"—a greater purpose than mine—happen, and how you can too.

Make It Happen is for
  • women who find themselves worried, anxious, and completely overwhelmed by the constant chase for perfection
  • those seeking the courage to jump into a new venture
  • working women who are struggling to "do it all"
  • weary wives and moms looking for relief from burning the candle at both ends
  • anyone who dreams of a life lived not by accident, but on purpose
Your time has come to take a leap of faith. Join me as we surrender our fears, end the chase for perfection, and say yes to cultivating the meaningful lives God desires for us.

You know all those things you've always wanted to do?
You should go do them.

    I love the way the author was sharing her story to give a better perspective on life and pursuing your dreams. I really loved that she shared when she was doing things on her own versus when she allowed God to lead her. Very inspirational!

    Self-help style books have always left me skeptical. If you do this & this & that it will equal into success, & well, self-help as if life is an easy equation & you just have to get the variables right. I dont know about you, but Ive never found real world problems to be black-&-white-mathematical, but more messy-gray. Plus, Im not into the homework aspect that is usually found in these books. I dont mind suggestions of helpful things to try, but telling me to do something can leave me antsy & then feeling like a failure when I dont get it done. Just being honest here. So, I admit it, I started reading Lara Caseys new book Make It Happen with some walls already up.

    The tag line to this book sounded real good, Surrender your fear. Take the leap. Live on Purpose. Who doesnt want to do all that (& then some)? Can I admit something else? I had seen Lara Caseys carelessly fancy scripted handwritten quotes & verses on Pinterest & other places on the Web, but I had never visited her blog & didnt know much about her other than that she wanted me to go & do all those things Ive always wanted to do (which is found taped to the inside of my cereal/snack cabinet in my kitchen, by the way). And, glancing at the pretty pinky orange-ish red paint streaked cover & Laras beautiful red-haired self smile-laughing big on the back, I judged based on appearances & thought this book would be all pretty-perfectness which whose life is that way? Certainly not mine, & not Lara Caseys either. It turns out Lara Caseys life has been a huge mess (many times - youll learn as you read her honest heart-words). We find out were all alike when we let the masks fall away & tell it true. Lara does this; she shares deep of her struggles & failures & mistakes & of Gods ever-present grace & love & hand in her life. Isnt that all our stories even when we dont want to own it? Lara seeks to empower women through Christs strength &, yes, there are goals spoken of, & breaking the power of the unattainable perfection that so many of us chase in some form or fashion, & yes there is homework - & no I didnt do it all but thats okay (theres also online resources like printables & videos that I did like, strangely enough). Making It Happen might just have redeemed the self-help book ever so slightly in my mind, because Laras book is more of an honest Christ-help book, & when Christ is the source of your strength, you can make all things happen Philippians 4:13.

    *I received this book as a complimentary copy from the publisher (through the BookLook Blogger program) in exchange for my honest review.
