The author Courtney Joseph is the creator of Women Living Well Ministries and the Good Morning Girls. I came across both websites while looking for help with bible studies and I must say the websites are amazing. So when I saw that she wrote a book, I quickly ordered it and I’m glad I did.

Courtney KNOWS what she is talking about. Speaking from the perspective as someone new to Christianity she makes it very clear what she is talking about and you can tell from reading that she knows what she is talking about too.

Every Christian women should read this book. It covers your walk with god, your marriage, your parenting and your homemaking. She shares stories from her own life to help explain some points and she tells it in a way that makes you imagine yourself there. Some books I have a hard time visualizing what is going on but with this book, especially since I know what she looks like from her website, I was able to visualize her stories like I was seeing through her eyes.

In the marriage section, she includes a two week marriage challenge which includes 5 activities a week to help you grow with your husband by doing simple tasks that may or may not be easy, depending on how things are with your marriage right now.

You can find resources from the book at Women Living Well including videos, webcasts, discussion questions and such. There is also a downloadable kit for personal study or book clubs that is a great compliment to the book.

Yelling At a Bud Won't Make it Bloom

The quote above is from the Parenting section in the book. It’s a little sentence but memorizing it is going to help me remember to curb my yelling.

I just cannot stress how amazing this book is and how amazing Courtney Joseph is. I am so thankful to have found her websites and book.
