Very good collection of talks aimed at LDS women. Sheri Dew does tend to expect a lot of us as women and challenges us to grow, often making us feel a bit guilty?, but her stories and quotes are uplifting and inspiring and her personal experiences are often funny, self-deprecating, and are very useful in shaping the talk that she is giving.She really has excellent stories to kick off her ideas, finds really meaty quotes, and does a great job with her topics.

Some interesting ideas from her book:

Some people have a beef with Sheri Dew because she's a more famous 2nd councilor than most RS presidents, or because she's written a lot of books, or because she's Mormonism's poster feminist. But you know what I was thinking while reading this book? That's just who she is. She's good at writing. She's an editor and a publisher who really knows her stuff (I once heard her discuss manuscript selection in a lecture and it blew me away.) and she's a 5'10 basketball fan from Kansas. It's just who sh ...more

This was a fantastic book. Sheri Dew does a wonderful job of inspiring you to be better, as she shares her insites and experiences. But mostly, her strong testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ and of our divine nature as children of God was what hit home the most. It truly made me want to let go of the things of the world, and try to be more Christ-like.

PS. I started reading this book a few years ago, and realized I only had 3 chapters left, so I finally finished it. I don't know why I have su

I LOVED this book. I have read it a couple of times at different segways of my life. I found it to be so comforting that there is someone like Sheri Dew, who knows through personal experiences, that Heavenly Father is mindful of each of us. I thumbed through the pages recalling some things that touched me when I was reading. President Ezra Taft Benson shared how he dealt with the stresses and challenges of his life: "I work as hard as I can, and I try my best to be obedient so that the Lord know ...more

Great Book. Sheri Dew is so inspiring. On the back cover, she poses two questions..What have we come here to do? and How will we do it? Sheri shares experiences from her own life, incorporated with gospel teachings that helped me to remember who I am and what is my purpose. It left me feeling so inspired. Sometimes it was long for me, but I did love the book!

LOVE Sheri Dews example and testimony of the restored gospel. It helped give me a greater understanding, love and appreciation for our Heavenly Fathers Plan for us as Daughters and Sisters in Zion. I went out and bought 3 copies last year after reading it to give to my sister in law and 2 close friends. I will re-read this book year after year!

It took me a long time to read this book since I would often want to ponder or work on applying what I read. Then I would end up forgetting about it for awhile, and then I would pick it back up. This is definitely a book I want to read again. Principles are stated very clearly and highlighted with examples.

i've only read one other book by sheri dew, If Life Were Easy, It Wouldn't Be Hard: And Other Reassuring Truths, and as i seem to recall, i really liked that one. however, i LOVED this one. it had a wonderful message on how to understand our potential as women and how to live up to it. normally, when i read articles or books about things like that, i end up feeling guilty that i'm not doing what i can, but in this case, the book was so positive and uplifting that i had no guilt. i don't feel as ...more

Sheri Dew is a great author and a fun read. I have read several of her books. The reason I like her is because she helps you to realize with God's help you can accomplish so much more than by yourself. Any book of hers makes you realize it is within yourself to do anything you want - you just have to want it enough and let God help you accomplish it.

Optimistic and encouraging. It was a little challenging to get through but I liked her life examples that helped illustrate her points.

One of my favorite quotes, "Living as Latter-day Saints is not easy. But it is easier than the alternative. The cost of discipleship, as high as it may be, is less than the price of sin."

I read this book with a friend in mind struggling that I'd like to help. Even though I'm high on life and loving every step of this crazy journey, I didn't have any side eyes to give Sheri Dew, just a lot of head nods and amens. I decided to send my copy to my friend in hopes it'll give her the boost that Sheri Dew's contagious energy gave me.

Shelves: couldn-t-finish
I like Sheri Dew a lot. I like her energy and enthusiasm for all things good and right. But No Doubt About It got really tedious for me. I felt like it was one long pep talk about how awesome women are. And while I think women are awesome, I was thinking that maybe I should have low self-esteem so that I would find this book more uplifting. As in, maybe low self-esteem is a pre-requisite for reading this book.

I loved some of the one-liners in this book, and I have saved many quotes from it. I al

I didn't realize that this book is directed towards members of the Relief Society of the Church of Jesus Christ if Latter-day Saints until maybe a quarter of the way through. But the principles, doctrines, lessons, and stories it contains are applicable to everyone.

Sheri explains what it is that she has come to know and not doubt in her life through personal experiences of her own, her family, and those she has come in contact. She has traveled widely in her responsibilities as a member of the General Relief Society Board for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her emphasis is on women and what a powerful and awesome force they can be when they band together with a common purpose. Her premise is that they can only do this if they first underst ...more

More spiritually uplifting than any other book I've read, Sheri Dew proclaims that we all have potential for the glorious life of a divine princess, insisting that a royal spirit "who we were, who we are, and who we are meant to be". As she gives her view on many religious subjects, it's impossible not to take a step backward and re-evaluate your life. Are you reaching your own expectation? Your potential? The uplifting words of Sheri Dew inspire me to stand strong against the adversary, never r ...more

Sheri Dew speaks to my soul. I think she is every woman, and her experiences seem to be universal. What she does with those experiences, and shares with us, can be, if not life changing, than clearly thought changing.

I know this book is 15 years old but I just picked it up at a thrift store. I am glad I did. It is so full of high-lighting that it could provide talk and lesson material for years. Loved it.

I listened to this book on CD thanks to my father-in-law gifting it to me while he was serving as mission president. Sheri Dew is fun to listen to and her farm town stories relate easily with my growing up memories. You learn a lot about yourself and others simply by the place you're raised. I enjoyed her comment about "many are called but few are chosen and we do the choosing." I thought that was interesting and have pondered on it a lot since listening to the book. It is up to me to choose whe ...more

Loved it.... You simply have to read this one to get it all.
"We no longer have the luxury of spending our energy on anything that doesn't lead us and our families to Christ," writes Sister Dew. "In the days ahead, a casual commitment to Christ will not carry us through. The time has come for each of us to stand tall, and then, in doing so, to stand together." ~ Sheri Dew
Life is filled with moments of joy, but life is also hard. It is an unmistakable privilege to be here in mortality, but

I loved this book! Sheri Dew addresses it especially to LDS women, but I think that any woman feeling overwhelmed and underappreciated would get a lift from this great book. I put a bookmark in and wrote the page numbers of my favorite quotes. I will share a few.

This book was amazing! I bought it years ago when it first came out, but it's sat on my shelf. I finally picked it up, and I think it was the right time. My only regret is that I didn't have a pen or highlighter on me the whole time I was reading it, as there were so many good points that I wanted to be able to find again. Sheri Dew has an amazing ability to simultaneous tell you you're doing a good job at this test we call life, while also encouraging you to go far beyond where you are now. The ...more

Awesome words of wisdom from an amazing woman. Just what I needed to hear.
I absolutely love hearing Sheri Dew speak, and I think she is an inspiration & great role model for anyone to follow. However, I felt like I had read the book before even though I hadn't. It seemed to be a collection of her talks written in book form. There were even a couple of times when she told the same story or used the same example in two different chapters.

I did enjoy reading it, and would recommend it to anyone who needs a little positive encouragement. She's a great woman. If you ha

I saw a friend of mine was currently reading this book and it reminded me of when I read it a few years back.

I LOVE Sherri Dew and this book is amazing. It was one of those books that when you finish, you just have to go look in the mirror deep into your own eyes and ponder who YOU are... inside. I think it was the first time I realized that there is a spirit inside each of us capeable of doing far more than our limited bodies can fathom.

In her characteristic style, Sheri Dew both wittily and directly shares her life experiences and her beliefs about Jesus Christ, encouraging listeners to make changes in their own lives. From lessons learned as a Kansas farm girl to those learned while serving in the Relief Society General Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Dew gets you laughing but at the same time, gets you to want to do better.
