What Happened to My Life?...Review

About the book:
For many women, busyness, worry, and discouragement can drain all of the joy and passion from life. The tyranny of the urgent, fears about tomorrow, and even small disappointments quickly leave them tired, frustrated, and discontent. But it doesn't have to be that way, says personal life coach and speaker Danna Demetre. 

In What Happened to My Life? Danna invites readers to join her on a 40-day journey where they'll learn to -slow down and make better choices -reinterpret life and have more realistic expectations -choose the very best from all the good -and pursue God in a life-changing way Whether dealing with a life crisis or simply feeling that life is not all they'd hoped for, readers will find that this new book helps them to find authentic contentment and joy regardless of circumstances. And to move from simply surviving to truly thriving once again.

Danna's voice is one that I think will resonate with many women.  Too often, we feel overwhelmed, tired and discouraged.  We all know that we should make changes in our lives, but what do we change and how?  Danna explores these issues and more.  With personal stories and practical application, you learn about balance which is so important in life; balance that includes time for yourself and time for God. 

You can read the book and do the 40-day devotional at the end, or you can read it, ponder it and do the devotional at a later time.  However you choose to apply this book to yourself, you will come away renewed and refreshed.  This is a book that I can see myself going back to again and again.

Available May 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Thanks to Donna Hausler of Baker Publishing for the opportunity to review this book. You can learn more about Danna Demetre here.  You can purchase your own copy here.

  1. This sounds like a great book. Thanks for reviewing it. I think most women can relate to this. It seems we worry about everything and get discouraged easily enough. I'm sure we can all use help learning to manage those feelings -- I know I could.
