Feb. Monthly Reading Recommendation
Hey readers! Have you finished the last reading recommendation and are looking for another?
If you want to make better decisions in your life, and learn to say “no” when you need to, I’d highly recommend reading Lysa Terkeurst’s “The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands.” As a mother, wife, and leader of “She Speaks,” conferences, Lisa’s advice is real, practical and powerful. This book is chock-full of wonderful tips and inspiring strategies for helping you reset your priorities and set healthy boundaries. Some of my favorite takeaways include:
- We have 168 hours per week that are entrusted to us, and we need to think about how we spend our soul.
- When we refuse to release we have less peace.
- Before we make a decision we need to ask ourselves, “How will I feel about this 3, 6, 12 months from now?”
- We need to make decisions that lead to peace. Your heart may want to say “yes” but does the reality of your time, or the season of your life make this a “no?”
- Before we make a decision it is a good to ask ourselves, “I am saying “yes” to this so that I may bless whom?”
- “We have to put our hearts and our minds in places where wisdom gathers, not scatters.”
To assess how you spend your time, Terkeurst offers a FREE assessment on her Web site, TheBestYes.com. Just click on the resource link and you’ll see the “Time Assessment Tool.”
