The Finishing School by Valerie Woerner

About the book: 
The Finishing School: How One Book Nerd Began Living What She Learned
 (Nyree Press, August 2015)

Are you tired of waiting for change to happen in your life? Do you feel stuck, even though you want to live more intentionally?

In today's world, our most precious pursuit of a life well lived gets squeezed out by the silliest of things: binging on Netflix or ice cream, shopping trips for things we don't need, bad habits we can't seem to get a handle on, and so much more. Valerie has been there despite knowing what she wanted for her life. Actually do it? That's the challenge.

After gobbling up all the non-fiction and self-help books her donut-filled belly could handle, she decided it was time to put her knowledge to good use and start actually living it out. You will hear about her journey through victories and plenty of failures and find practical tips to apply to your own pursuit of holiness. You will find homework at the end of each chapter that includes a worksheet to put real change in motion for your own life as well as recommended books to further study those topics that really test you.

MY REVIEW OF THIS BOOK:  This was a surprise gem that I signed up to review.   It is totally opposite of what I actually thought that it would be for me.

It is and is not a self-help book.   It helps you focus on what is really important in life and to make those changes that you have always wanted to make.   I really enjoyed the worksheets included with each section.   They made you focus inward and help take baby steps in making the changes you wanted always to make in your prayer life, devotional life and other areas.   

The Finishing School is a great Bible Study for all ladies who want to make changes in their lives.
