"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,
and He will show you which path to take."
~~Proverbs 3:5-6~~
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. Jesus is Lord of my life and I strive daily to draw closer to Him. I love being a homemaker---taking care of my family and home. I enjoy couponing, cleaning, and cooking. I love to get the best deal on everything and find that yard sales and thrift stores are the perfect places for that. I have recently felt lead to write a Bible study and have been working on it in my spare time. I truly enjoy leading women's groups as we all seek to grow closer to the Lord. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy reading about what happens as I strive do all of this.

BOOK SNEEZE BOOK REVIEW "Beautiful Things Happen When a Woman Trusts God" By: Sheila Walsh

I read this book a while back and thought that I had posted a review of it for Book Sneeze.  Since I had not, I thought I would do so today.  

Sheila Walsh is a gifted writer that literally draws you in with the first few words of this book.  I read this book not long before a very devastating betrayal of a friend.  I think the lessons that I learned about trusting God in this book helped me get through it.  Trust is something that the world has devalued in the last few generations.  For society, a handshake was enough and for God, His word has always been enough.  Now, society does not have much integrity, but God's consistency has lasted forever.  Sheila uses her own insecurities and trust issues to offer a real account of what happens when I woman allows herself to trust God with the unknown and unseen.
This book was a easy read and quick read but I found that she skipped around a lot in the "story".  There would be times that, as I read, I would have to re-read the previous pages to realize where she was on the current page.  Even with that, the book was interesting and insightful.  Sheila uses her own personal life and lives of David and others to make her point that you can trust God with EVERYTHING.  I have referred back to her words over the past year as I have been faced with a situation that required me to completely trust God to handle it.
