She's Got Issues
If you are a woman and you have issues, this book is for you. If you are a woman and you think that you don't have issues, this book is especially for you. Because like it or not, we all have "issues", and this book can help you unpack those issues and deal with them with honesty and grace. I received the book and DVD for group study free from the publisher in exchange for my participation in the blog tour and my honest review here. The book has 14 chapters and the DVD has 6 sessions, covering the issues of control, insecurity, comparisons, fear, anger, and unforgiveness. While some issues hit home more than others, I still found her approach to each of them very relatable, and still giving you more than just "self-help", but Scriptural guidance towards understanding and coping with our issues. The video sessions are part one-on-one interview with someone giving their own personal story, and part group Bible study led by the author. Overall, I found this to be a great study for any woman to do on her own, but even better for a group of friends to do together...even for those who don't see themselves as a "Bible study leader". I think the subtitle sums it up well..."seriously good news for stressed-out secretly scared control freaks like us."
