    Still thinking...a definite re-read. She discusses the self-love/care belief that?s so prevalent right now and promoted by many famous christian speakers/writers-who are primarily women now- so churches need to be aware and protect the women within the church. Women tend to be more e...

    *This is an ARC from the publisher via Netgalley. No review, positive or otherwise, was required?all opinions are my own.* With so much focus on self-care of late, the timing of this book couldn't be better. This short book was so helpful in showing areas where we are not focusing...

    What we focus on defines us, so if our focus is inward, on ourselves, we wind up defining ourselves whether we are righteous or guilt. When we begin and end with us - with our self- we miss the heart of the gospel and never truly find the freedom for which we ache. The snares of se...

    I think this book would be excellent for a women's small group. I found it very challenging, yet encouraging. Even though we as women often want "more" for ourselves, we know we cannot do it through ourselves alone. Finding freedom in letting go, we can fully flourish. I received a ...

    It has been a while since a book has impacted me as much as this one has. Brownback takes much of the self centered nature of what is popular in Christian culture today and sets us straight. In a time when self (self care, self improvement, self indulgence) is the focus, Brownback take...

    **I received this book from Crossway through Netgalley. All opinions are my own.** I knew of Lydia Brownback from her book ?Sing a New Song? which walks through the psalms, so I was excited to pick up ?Flourish?. I thought her content was challenging, and weeks after I finis...

    Flourish is for Christian women who want to more for themselves (to flourish) but know it can't be found in themselves - contrary to many current books written for them. It points them to Christ, and finding their worth in Him. It also includes questions for small group study at the en...

    This may be my favorite read, that is from a current author this year! My favorite books are usually by people that have lived long ago, but this year there are some really good books that have released. Authors that stand on the truth of God in His Word, who don?t try to make you fe...

    Well, started and finished this book in a couple of hours( to be fair, it?s relatively short) and am already planning to study it in a more in-depth way over the next month. A timely message for women, and I was both convicted and encouraged by it! ...

    This book is excellent! Sound biblical advice for dealing with too much self-focus. Rather than looking inward, we are to look toward Jesus to determine who we are and how we should live. Some of the topics dealt with in this book are self-indulgence, self-condemnation, and self-improv...

    I received this book from Crossway for book review (in PDF form). Flourish has transformed who I am. It opened my eyes to what God can do through me when I'm focus on Him and not self also my eyes were opened as to how Self- Conscious I was. This book has six sections: Set free f...
