If you long to make a change in your life, but haven't been able to get over that last hurdle? Then this is the read for you. Lysa shares intimate stories of how she feels like she's a bad wife and mother and is at the end of her rope. She endures pitfalls in her career and wants to throw in the towel. Ultimately, she decides to take control of her life and use her life lessons to help others.

I am positive that everyone will take something with them after reading this book. If you let go and le

This book was very applicable to where I am in life right now (as often is the case with Lysa's books, but especially this one). I really enjoyed doing this study with P31 OBS. I love how Lysa includes reflection questions which require significant thought as well as biblical study for support. Lysa's journey of faith through adopting her children, attempting to adopt another one, publishing her first book, etc are some of the journeys she takes us through to show us how to walk in obedience wit ...more

This book was so amazing. I love Lysa's writing style. This book explores five phases of walking in faith using Biblical examples from Biblical characters we all know of and can identify with. If you haven't identified with them at the beginning of this book, you sure will by the end! At the end of each chapter is a personal Bible study which allows you to dig even deeper into the Word to drive her points home. So many truths. So much worth in this. A must read for all Christian women.

Proverbs 31 online Bible study was another amazing read. This book that was written 10 years ago still had so much relevance today. Lysa's great at painting a story of faith from a real woman's outlook. I went through SO many things personally during reading this book and I truly know God had a purpose for me reading this book when I did!

This book is outstanding, as much because of the writing as because of the timing. I happened to be reading it during a time when the stages of faith in the book just happened to coincide with events in my life. It was really amazing to read and really lean into God during this time.

Loved this book. Read it a couple of years ago.

Has God given you a dream or desire to be more for Him or be used by Him in ministry, yet, it just doesn't seem to be happening? I know I've been there. Actually, I spent a lot of years there, and it has only been recently that God started moving on my desire. Oh, how I wish I would have read this book sooner.

Lysa TerKeurst's "What Happens When Women Walk in Faith" is a book about following your God-given dreams, yet it is about so much more. In her book, Lysa equips us with the encouragement an

A new Beginning

As I read through each chapter I could feel so many emotions brought to life that I had hidden deep in my heart for fears that society and the devil bring upon us. I feel this book opened my heart for a new beginning. I came expecting to grow and I feel I have. If you are looking for answers within yourself lately and know that they need to come from God but you are just not sure of if it is God's voice, your voice or the devil pulling you in a direction, I encourage you to read t

I think what I needed this book for at this time was the reminder of the different stages of dreams. I had forgotten that dreams are resurrected. Now, it may not look like I thought, and I don't think all dreams come out of the death phase, but I forgot there was anything past that phase at all. It was good to be reminded.

I think if I had done this with a group face to face I would have put more time in answering the questions at the end of the chapters, though not all of the questions at the e

I enjoy Lysa TerKeurst. I think she writes in a very real and relatable way. I also enjoyed how she wove together stories from the bible with her own experience. I think this book is good for those who might feel themselves in a place of uncertainty, a place of waiting, or a place of not feeling right in their own skin. Her ideas and assurances about being in that place would bring me comfort. I likely would have gotten more out of the book had I been better about engaging in the personal study ...more

What a great way to transition into summer! This is my summers kick off read and it was a good read. For me the steady theme being repeated and forcing us to open the scriptures instead of adding them all in is a great challenge and biggest reward. I want to skip it giving me the excuse that I have read it, I know what it says. The truth has a new depth each time you read it so I challenge you that if you give yourself the same excuse then choose a new bible translation to use so it will be new ...more

This book came at a time in my life I needed it. I read it for Proverbs 31 online Bible Study. You will get out of this book what you put into reading it and the scriptures given it it. The five phases of faith are well described in a simple a forward way with the scriptures to back them up and to help you as you go through them. I liked that Lysa TerKeurst shared her life through these phases and how she came through. It made me realize that I as a woman can do the same.

More like 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed it, but not the favorite study I have done, hence the lower rating. I thought it was a book full of great scripture and testimonies from the author. She challenged me in areas and gave me hope in those areas that seemed lost. She has an easy to follow style and is not afraid to share her past experiences that were difficult or emotional for her. Very relatable.

Recommends it for: everyone
Her life that she portrays in this book resonances with my life. No matter what we are doing and our different background, people who walk in faith with Holy Spirit's guidance will always go through this phases in life.

It is very encouraging book and a lot of testimonies that are not hard to believe the truthfulness of her story!

Recommended to everyone, especially those who are have hard times to stand firm in trials.

A good book. It's simple, not complicated. It's good because of the timing. I have been reading it during a time when all these phases are playing out in my life. Very enlightening, eye opening & encouraging to read, learn & apply what I've learned as I lean into God during this time. Lysa TerKeurst is a gifted writer & I'm thankful that God's given her this gift!

I'm so surprised I failed to add this last year. This book was very helpful to me in embracing God's vision for my life and talking through big decisions and surrenders with Him. God used it particularly as part of a big work He did in my life, teaching me to walk in faith, especially as related to my leaving home and marrying Matthew.

Wonderful!

This book is an amazing journey for a woman in her walk of faith! I have followed Proverbs 31 Ministry for years and had the pleasure of hearing Lysa speak. This is a book I would recommend for anyone in their walk of faith and it doesn't matter where they are at in it.

Amazing Book - using this in our women's small group in church. Lysa has an incredible way of sharing life experiences and tying them to God's truths in ways that women can relate to. I have been challenged and inspired by this book.

This book helps people to trust God. We need to trust that we can really be forgiven of all our sins when we trust in God's sacrifice of Jesus. When we do that then we can know for certain that when we die we will go to heaven.

God brought this book and the Proverbs 31 book study into my life as my mother was ending her struggle with cancer. The timing was amazing as I was facing burying her while also helping my father. I can't tell you what this book meant to me, and to my walk in faith.

This book was very insightful and uplifting regarding our faith and how to REALLY WALK in it. If I took away one thing, it was that time with God, in his word, getting to know HIm better, is the only way to walk in faith.

I love this author, speaker, and Bible teacher. I have read many of her books & have loved them, sadly, this book was not one of them. The subject matter was great & informative, but the writing style and stories seemed a bit "clunky"...nothing seemed to flow together.

This is an AMAZING book for anyone that wants to strengthen their faith. It describes the journey we take when we trust God completely to lead your life. This is the second time I read this book and I still get so many bits of wisdom from it.

Awesome book on faith

This book really makes you look deep into the root of your faith and where you need to be with God. Faith is what you don't see but what God is leading you towards.

Good Bible study. I tried to do the online study with it, but it moved fast and I didn't have time to study in depth. I am now going back over it and answering the questions more thoughtfully.

Good Read

I chose this rating because this book is what I needed at the time. It helps those whose Faith slips from time to time. This book will be a lifelong reference book.
