For motivational speaker Tammy Evevard, women's shoes are "a simple, yet stunning, reminder of God's amazing creativity and love." The author of Becoming the Woman God Made You to Be, Evevard has been reinforcing the message of God's love for more than 20 years through storytelling and practical advice in presentations on youth leadership, team-building, and faith development. In the book's introduction, the she explains that she doesn't look at women's footwear to compare or critique, but to observe the range of differences within any group. She goes on to discuss the fourth chapter of Joshua in which the people, on God's request, build a pile of stones as a memorial to all the good God had done for them. This book, she writes, "is my pile of stones-maybe more like a pile of shoes-a heartfelt reminder of all the good God brings and the fire we bring to the world." The book is presented in 11 chapters filled with personal stories; quotations from writers of classical, popular, and religious works; and references to movies and social media. The last chapter consists of a 25-item list of things Evevard has learned "some good, some bad, and some just fun." The list isn't broken into categories, so you will have to judge which of the following examples are fun, which are good, and which are bad. No. 5: Styles that should never come back-mullets, hammer pants, and leg warmers. No. 10: I believe you learn a lot about a woman by her shoes and handbag. No. 15: A hero isn't someone who can fly; a hero is a woman who chooses to leap when she can't see what's ahead and builds her wings on the way down. No. 20: There has never been a time when Isaiah 43 did not speak to my heart. No. 25: "Every day, in every moment, remember that you-yes, you-are an amazing wonder of God's creation-the crowning achievement of all God created."Was this review helpful?
