She's Still There - Book Review

Sometimes being a mom takes it all out of you. Everything. Including yourself.

So that's why I love Chrystal Evans Hurst's book She's Still There. It's about getting yourself back. And not just any you. The girl you used to be.

Remember those big dreams you had? Remember what you always said you were going to do? Find those dreams and goals again. Find that girl again.

But this book isn't just for moms. It's for any woman - mom, wife, single, working, etc. We all have traveled down roads and gotten sidetracked by detours and drifts. No matter where you are in life, you've probably found yourself thinking, "Is this really where I thought I'd end up?"

Hurst says it is possible to get back on track, and you just need a little help from this book and the Lord.

At the end of every chapter, there are questions for reflection, and what I want to do is answer those questions through scrapbooking. I've been wanting to add to my Book of Me, and I think that using my scrapbook pages as journaling for these questions will be a nice way for me to get creative while reflecting. But you can certainly do it however you want, and I would really encourage you to read this book with your book club or Bible study.

For a more in-depth analysis of yourself, head to the back of the book. There's a personal assessment that aims to help you identify your gifts, abilities, and passions while changing your perspective.

It doesn't matter how you got off track. It doesn't matter how long you've been off track. Just read this book and learn how to get yourself back.
