My Review:    
Starting out I will say that author Beth Moore is at the very top! I have enjoyed many of her Bible study's over the past five to six years. Her writing and studies have been so inspiring for me. 

This book came to me on the hills of a time when I was insecure the most. Growing up there were times in my childhood that I was insecure about. But I knew that God was on my side. Then came marriage, kids, trying to work, enjoying working in the church, but also in a completely different place, state, people, no more close family, father, no more familiar church's. So with all new things around me I began questioning myself.

Was I a good mother, wife, worker, most of all did I really love the Lord enough? Was I doing what He wanted? These thoughts followed me through out several years. Hiding my feelings from everyone. But then a loving lady minister ministered to us on a Sunday night. It was the first time I had ever heard her preach. Oh My... Rev. Paula Farmer helped me see what I had been doing. Some walls came down that night. 

But as time went by and several years I finally started reading auther and speaker, BETH MOORE. Then last year I heard about this book, purchased it and started reading. Again, Oh My, Oh My... did she ever hit the nail on the head. 

I love how author BETH MOORE digs in, uses scriptures and never ever makes you feel like you are stupid. She is always truthful, uplifting, inspirational, and as always she speaks with the Word of God to back up what she feels the Lord has given to her to help others. I so enjoy digging in with her. 

I would recommend this book to one and all. Why? Because it has a lot of great advice, not just for married couples but for young love, for couples thinking of getting together.
 
So due to the above, if I could it would be higher, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 


Five Clock Rating!!!  

Disclosure: I did not receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. This is my own book and the opinions are my own and yours may differ.

About the Authors:
 FROM THE AUTHOR'S WEB PAGE: Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 with the purpose of teaching women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies, including Breaking Free, Believing God, and When Godly People Do Ungodly Things, that have been read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. Through the years, American missionaries and expatriates have taken the Bible studies overseas, resulting in Beth Moore Bible study groups popping up all over the world. Beth’s Living Proof Live conferences have taken her to thirty-nine states since 1994 and have been attended by more than 421,000 women. God has graciously given her the opportunity to speak to the body of Christ in many different countries, including Ireland, England, Singapore, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and India. With great joy, she began a radio ministry in 2004 called Living Proof with Beth Moore.
Ever the storyteller, Beth is known to pepper her teaching with stories and poems written from the perspective of pertinent characters. She communicates with great energy, passion, humor, warmth, and grace.
Beth attends Houston’s First Baptist Church, where she hosts an interdenominational Tuesday-night Bible study for women in her city. Because of her burden for unity in the body of Christ, Beth counts serving women of all denominations as one of her greatest privileges in life.
Beth and Keith praise God for 28 years of marriage. They enjoy traveling, hiking, drinking coffee on the back porch, eating Mexican food, making each other laugh, walking their dogs, Beanie and Sunny, and being grandparents. Amanda and her husband, Curtis, serve at a church in the Dallas area and have a one-year-old son named Jackson. Melissa, who shares her mother’s appreciation for the Greek language, is completing her Master’s degree in Biblical exegesis.
