Lyons shares her journey to find her personal gifts and balance
Lyons shares her journey to find her personal gifts and balance in her life, while coping with anxiety attacks and depression. This was an interesting book to read because I think a lot of women struggle with similar issues, myself included. Women today have so many choices, it is natural to question if we are making the best choices.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

One topic Lyons touches on is letting ourselves be open and vulnerable with our friends and knowing and being known, without putting up false fronts to seem like we have it all together. I think this is probably the best message from the book. I liked the stories she shared about her friends and how they discovered their gifts together, after sharing their struggles. Everyone has God-given gifts to share and how wonderful to help each other discover our gifts.
I think this book is helpful because it lets women know they are not the only ones feeling overwhelmed with meeting their needs, or the needs of their family. I appreciate Lyons sharing her struggle, because I could identify with some of her feelings.
I think this was an interesting book that could be helpful to a lot of women, especially those who are struggling. If you want to read about a woman's journey to finding her gifts and meeting her needs and the needs of those who depend on her, you would enjoy this book. If your friends think you have it all together, and you know you don't, this is definitely the book for you.

Honestly this was a difficult book for me to read. I completely understand life from the depression/anxiety point of view and this story was not something that would make me want to see life any differently if I was feeling that way. I think that the author has a great story to tell but it's nothing I haven't read before. That being said, I'm sure this book will help many people through their own struggles.
