Tara Barthel succeeds in showing us how peacemaking starts within ourselves, our own hearts and then flows outward into our relationships through the never ending grace of God. Tara writes with a discernment that pushes past the mere idea of peacemaking and guides you through the how-to's of applying Peacemaking in our daily lives.Was this review helpful?

Because of the hectic world we all live in, most of us are looking for ways to find Peace. She not only clarified the variety of issues that can cause everyday conflict, she outlined necessary steps to correct it... Our choice. I appreciated the set of questions that followed each chapter, helping to guide you in your individual quest to apply the teachings to yourself. I deeply appreciated her vunerability in sharing her own personal issues. It helped me to understand that I wasn't the only one going through that particular conflict. I have been able to not only use this in my own personal life but to help other women develop these skills. It is a book to be read again and again because of its relevancy. I am reading it for the third time and have discovered new teachings. It is a book worth having in a personal library.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I appreciated this book becausee the authors have many years of experience in mediation. From these years in the field, they have put together a solid teaching which provides straigtening out what we believe, what the root of conflict usually is, and how to deal with it and become a peacemaking woman. It is filled with genuine honest sometimes gut-wrenching truth and a whole lot of humor as well. Read it and have peace!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
