An enjoyable read which discussing some challenging topics. The underlying focus of this book is to talk about priorities in a woman's life and how these shape her through life. Who you are in 10 years will be determined by your goals and choices and the things you choose to focus on.
The main areas

she lists (in order of priority) are:
#1 - God
#2 - Your husband (if you are married)
#3 - Your children (if you have any)
#4 - Your home
#5 - Your spiritual growth
#5 - Your ministry activities
#6 - Other activities

And she emphasises that this must be filled in order of priority. For example, you should prioritise your relationship with your husband (#2) higher than your children (#3), or your relationship with your children (#3) higher than your hobbies (#6), or most importantly, your relationship with God (#1) over all these things. Her point is not that these things are bad, but like a reverse Maslow's hierarchy of needs, you should make sure that your choices in life are prioritising things in the order of the pyramid, so that your life follows God's will and does not get out of balance, which has the potential to destroy the relationships that are being ignored.

I like how the author gets straight to the point and doesn't waffle on. She covered many topics in each chapter, had a lot of advice from her own life or other influential authors she has read. This book is definitely one I will return to and think about more over the coming months.

Really loved this one and intend to read it again. The book shows the authors sweet spirit and lovingly instructs on how to be a Christian wife/mom/single/woman according to the Bible.
