5 Little Questions...

This is the book that I am currently reading, and let me tell you, I love it! I am not the type of person you would call a "reader." I know how to, and sometimes enjoy it, but I would rather do something else then read. But for some reason (obviously a God reason) this book caught my eye in a clearance bin at a Christian bookstore. I thought the cover looked pretty, and it was only $2.99. I am always a sucker for cheap and pretty. So I started reading it, and I haven't been able to put it down. It is by Dannah Gresh, who along with her husband founded Pure Freedom. It is a ministry that talks a lot about modesty, being a woman of God, and has a lot of great info for moms and daughters. I have only spent a couple brief minutes looking at her website, and I highly recommend it. Especially for moms with tweens and teens!
Back to the book...I am almost finished with it and it has totally changed my outlook on my priorities. I would love to think I know what order my priorities should be in, and that I actually practice that order, but I don't. I know in my head what I should be doing, and when I should be doing it, but I have no follow through. It's like Paul, when he says I know what I should, yet I am not doing it.
The book is broken into 4 parts, and it is an easy, quick, yet powerful read. I love her writing style, because it is realistic, it's like talking to a girlfriend while you read it. She is the first to point out her mistakes, not just yours, and she is very helpful on how to get back on track with your priorities. This lady went from making millions to being in huge debt, starting a Christian school and having nothing, to now, I think she is doing just fine.
I don't want to give it all away, but it is a good read, and a great investment in your spiritual journey. If nothing else, check out her website, and have a look around.
