I read this book first because it is written by the daughter of one of our pastors and second because it sounded "light". Sometimes Christian books are just too deep and I need something more on my level! And while it was light and fun, it also gave me some good things to think about. I appreciated the author's honesty about herself and I am amazed at the huge list of "confessions" she came up with, all of which I also struggle with. The tone of the book is very conversational and she is easy to ...more

Such an enjoyable compliation of real-life experiences, thoughts, and challenges faced by women of today. It is written in a humorous style by a pastor's wife and mother of three. Most women will be able to relate to "the tired supergirl" struggles concerning everyday life. She embraces sincere honesty which makes the book a gem. She reminds us that in the end all that matters is that with Jesus "nothing is impossible."
After seeing post about this book on a Facebook status, I wanted to give it a try. Aughtmon is a mother of 3 and a Pastors wife. This book is a faith based book and each paged is about finding Jesus with in you, and learning how to live in Jesus's name.
I find my self to be a religious person but the style of writing did not appeal to me. The book focused on the idea of a woman being a "supergirl" and the idea of battling "villains" through the word of the bible. I think that the message of being

This book is a gift of a friend and I am very much thankful to have it. Sometimes, you have to read a book that will make you wonder about your thoughts and doings. And thid is one of those books.

I am a tired supergirl but I knew Jesus will always be there. You have to reach out to Him, accept Him, love Him, and you have to bear in your mind, that He will never leave you. And thank you for this book. Very light but straight from the heart.
I really felt like this author wrote this book for me. I absolutely loved it. I think as Christians, we get so caught up in being perfect...we make ourselves tired. Heaven forbid that anyone ever see the junk we have going on in our personal lives. This was a refreshing look at many of the feelings women (whether Christian or not) feel, and a biblical approach and HOPE that we can work towards not being a quite so tired Supergirl.

There were quite a few good points throughout the book, the overall message was a good one. Cute, quirky jokes throughout to keep you entertained overall. I think the chapters were very short and could have been expanded on. The writing was decent, but stood room for improvement. Overall it was good and I while I might not out and out tell someone to read it, if I were specifically asked I would say it was a good book to read.
it was a good read. Some parts made me laugh as I could relate to some of them.
My mil gave this book to me; the author is a family friend. I liked the warm and witty writing style, and agree with the general thesis. She lists an incredible number of faults we all have- I was starting to feel a bit beaten down, honestly- but not enough real follow up. "Get with Jesus" and "Be like Jesus" are genuine solutions, but so much easier said than done, at least for me.
My father-in-law gave me this book based solely on the title and I throughly enjoyed it. I would give it 4 1/2 stars if that was possible. The chapters were short, concise, funny, and dead on to what most mothers/women deal with on a daily basis. There were many times I was reading it thinking, this chick is in my head.
This book is "good" in that it covers a little bit of everything, but there wasn't anything in it I hadn't heard before. Its strength, though, was the humor. Its a rare thing to find a honest writer who is witty, and to the point as well as Godly.

I recommend this read for new moms or younger women.
Kimberly Simpson
I loved this book. It really helped me to understand Jesus as a person. Can't wait to read her other books.
A fun read about all the things we struggle with as women in America. I laughed a lot, with the book. Written for the Christian female, but anyone can get something out of it, even if it is just shared struggle.
This book is perfect for a mom's group or women's book club. It is easy to read. Light. And the chapters are short. An encouraging Christian book that will challenge your daily life a little along the way.
Michelle Palmer
Great Practical stuff, did some good "toe stepping" also. Now when I notice these things rising up and can take care of them.
This is our next book club selection. It gave me a lot to think about in terms of who I am and who I want to be.
Cindy Nanney
I recommend this book for anyone with any stress in their lives (should cover us all) A great inspiration for me
I enjoyed the book, but the discussion regarding it was even better! Great for a fun women's study!
Michele Misiak
This book makes you feel like your not alone in stumbling through life and God!
Pauline Ezra
Practical. Honest. Realistic. I love it! I could relate to every chapter.
Love this, can totally relate! Spiritually practical (if that exists)
Rochelle Medrano
For me, the book has still a lot of room for improvement.
