Short book that is packed with a punch. This is a book you want to keep and come back to. It is a great reminder to fully rely on God. As a mom, as a friend, as a wife; this is not always easy.

Quick-read. Author quotes other books a lot. It was worth reading once.
There are quite a few HUGE nuggets of wisdom in this book. Good stuff.
