My first experience with Allison Allen was at Women of Faith. I was in attendance a few years to see her perform on stage. Even sitting many seats away, she was able to draw me near, pull me in, and forever change my heart. She is pure and transparent. That's the kind of girlfriend we all seek to find, but more importantly the woman we all need to be.
She brings all she's learned from the theatrical stage and has brought it to life for us in ways that are so unique you are sure to find yourself within these pages.
She's that cheerleader we all need in our corner. But many of us are short of cheerleaders. She guides us to finding ourselves in Christ, to being pure to who we are, and thriving to seek our role in the world around us.
It can be suffocating trying to figure out who we are and where we belong. Especially as women. We compete with everyone around us and find ourselves falling short. Not because we are not worthy, but because we are trying to be someone we were not meant to be. We were meant to shine in our own skin and be present in our own life.
This is a marvelous read for every woman of every age. Even a great book for Sunday school class, a youth group gathering, a small gathering of friends sharing coffee and heart. This is certainly a keeper for the shelf to go back to again on those days where Satan is roaring and we forget who we were to be and for whom we were meant to shine!!
This book was a gift from Revell for sharing my review with you.
