Editorial Reviews

Debbie W. Wilson
"Using revealing anecdotes and Scripture, they describe how the world's lies have become powerful even in the lives of Christians, explore the devastating effects, and consider what Christians can do about it in their lives. These lies have become commonplace, insidious, and destructive throughout our society.... In most chapters, the writer has experienced the power of the lie in her own life, and reveals something from her experience. Through anecdotes and reasoning, the reader is compelled to identify how the lies have affected her own life.... Though the book is most appropriate for women, men would gain much also from it. Each chapter ends with questions which make the book suitable for personal or group study. It could prove very helpful for a teenage girls' Sunday school or Bible study also."

Maggie Harding
"I Can't Do it All! can be used to guide a Bible study or simply to help the reader break free of lies that control. It is a book about hope and healing, written by three women from diverse backgrounds who have a common belief in the goodness and mercy of God."

    We Can Do It All, No We Are Just Tired

    We try to do it all, be all things to all people, be all places at all times.We are women, we are capable and we are tired. Tracie Peterson, Allison Bottke and Dianne O'Brien tackle the statement 'I can do it all' with truth and grace in this book. With candor and vulnerability they share stories from their own journeys and guide us on ours. Fourteen chapters, fourteen lies we try to live and always fail. For it is the truth of the Bible that will break the lies. Then we learn it is only through Christ who strengthens us that we can do all things. This book is an excellent resource for women's Bible studies, retreats and individual growth and reflection. Woven through the pages is truth, beauty and the grace of the God who CAN do it all. Read the book. You will see yourself on the pages. You will also find mercy and freedom on every page.

    A must-have for any women's group or to read for personal insight...

    This non-fiction book was so deep that I could only eat it in morsals. What an ideal resource for a women's group! I dare say I enjoyed it even more than Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, and I thought that Bible study was awesome. Whether read individually or with a group, I Can't Do It All is so rich, and has such fantastic questions, that it smoothly facilitates transitioning into the deeper issues. I am going to strongly suggest this book for my women's group at church after we finish the current book we're working through. I learned a lot and gathered insights into my own spiritual walk. Talk about convicting! These ladies made a great team! I loved the 'My Turn' section at the end of most chapters. I feel like I know the author's hearts. Their candidness and testimonies are refreshingly real. It's as if I joined hearts with them as sisters in Christ. I even read a few sections out loud to my husband. He was wondering why it's only a women's book. Seemed to him like much of it applied to men as well. :) Highly recommended.
