"Every Thought Captive" is an excellent book for women who have self-worth issues, who have trouble with worry/anxiety, forgiveness, envy, lust, eating habits or body issues, depression, those who crave acceptance from others, and those who get trapped into extreme business or fall into apathy. The author covers problems, some common to everyone, but from a distinctly female perspective.

She shared stories of women who struggle with or have struggled with these issues. She then identified the roo
I listened to this audiobook while cleaning and I'll be honest with you, I didn't hear every word. I zoned out sometimes. Part of this is because I was doing tasks, but the other reason is because the author read it and while her writing is clear and powerful, I don't think it is her calling to read her own books.
