Lindsey5 Stars Out Of 5Soul FillingJune 15, 2021LindseyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Satisfied is a soul filling and refreshing book. Alyssa Joy Bethke has written a simple but profound book. Best read slowly and multiple times, Satisfied is full of truths that remind us in a gentle and humbling way to look to the Lord in everything, whether that be friendship & community, lonliness, dissatisfaction, anxiety or body image. Alyssa reminds us that we can't just say we serve Jesus but deep down live "[wanting] what [we] want when [we] wanrt it, as it leads us to live like God is withholding good from [us]." BUt that is so far from the truth because "there is so much joy in life, if we trust in Jesus...[asking him for] help and to give us His eyes to see the joy instead of white knuckling it and trying to force life to be, as it is in our minds. Satisfied reminds us, we are not alone in our fight to be fulfilled. Because of Jesus we are "enough - not only for those around you, but for yourself."

Do you feel the pressures and burdens of this life have put out your fire? When will the life you've been given and blessed with finally leave you feeling satisfied instead of thirsty for more? That me. Thats how I've felt. Im tired. Im worn out and weary. Im the one laying in bed at night wondering if the day I just spent really had been spent well. Stressed out, worn out and looking for hope, I found Satisfied. This book is amazing. I couldn't put it down. Each page felt as if it was written for me. Each heartfelt piece of advice felt as if Alyssa knew me, was looking into my eyes and speaking to my heart. It's funny. It hits home. It's made me happy cry that someone knows exactly how I feel. This book! It's such a great read. Come on! Don't you want to feel Satisfied?
bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Good insights for women on Christian livingMay 21, 2021bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4This is a beautiful book. It's one you could place on your coffee table or a shelf convenient for frequent perusal. The photos by Jenna Strubhar are stunning. There are beautiful landscape photos and fun scenes of the Bethke family and friends. But the photos are only there to support insightful comments.
Bethke explores a number of themes in this book. Moving to Hawaii, for example, she writes of the struggle to find new women friends. She realized, "God is the only One who will ever fully satisfy our longing souls." (10) She has a touching account of her miscarriage and the work of grief on her healing journey. She shares her thoughts on the power of music, the trap of comparison, dealing with fear, body image and identity, holy moments, consumerism and more.
This is a beautiful and insightful book for the young Christian. It provides an opportunity to stop and take a few moments to gaze at wonderful scenes and read encouraging comments on living life for Jesus. It would be especially attractive to women who love garden tea parties and luncheons where all the women wear dresses. Bethke has included some of her favorite recipes too.
Don't be intimidated by the family photos with beds all made and pillows strategically places, shelves and play areas tidy, kids with absolutely clean clothes, cleverly decorated rooms with no dust bunnies or dirty kitchen counters. While Bethke sometimes writes about the messes of life, none of them were allowed to be seen in the perfectly crafted photos.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. My comments are an independent and honest review.
