A Woman’s Secret to a Balanced Life is a wellspring of practical, powerful, and pertinent Biblical counsel about what it means to be a godly woman.  Authors Sharon Jaynes and Lysa TerKeurst have opened floodgates of wisdom by employing a fascinating metaphor about seven ‘principle–pools’ from which women can dip for refreshment and refocusing on their God–given roles and responsibilities.  Using the ‘Proverbs 31 Woman’ as their model, they encourage and enable women to prioritize and reach realistic goals for revering Jesus, honoring their husbands, nurturing their relationships with their children and friends, creating welcoming homes, and contributing to their communities.  They write with incredible passion and often surprising poignancy, as they reveal the depths of their hearts.  One thing is certain:  Sharon and Lysa have dipped their pens into living water, writing an inspired book whose ripples will be felt for years to come.  As they prepare women to become vessels into which the Spirit of the living Christ is poured, His blessings will overflow to the lives they touch, and continue cascading throughout the generations.”

“Lysa and Sharon have the wonderful gift of covering many topics, yet you have the feeling that they are covering them in great depth.  They provide practical ideas based in Scripture and toss in for our enjoyment and instruction, their own worlds of struggle and success.  I always enjoy Lysa and Sharon’s books and this is no exception.”

“Reading this book is like taking a rigorous but refreshing hike in the mountains with Sharon and Lysa.  It is challenging and yet deeply rewarding to walk through its pages.  I am grateful for their honest and transparent stories from the trails of life.  The seven principles of a balanced life are great destinations to aim for.  Since I often trip up on nurturing my three teenagers, organizing my home, and budgeting my time, I was able to take a fresh look at the priorities on my own path.  Most importantly, this book beckons each of us to the summit for an intimate encounter with Christ.  That is the wonderfully refreshing part, and the book takes us there time after time.  My hiking boots are laced and I’m hittin’ the trail!”

“Thank you for sending the book,  A Woman’s Secret to a Balanced Life. It is a timely book. God spoke to my heart through the words of Lysa and Sharon. It refreshed my faith with sprinkles of wisdom and experience. What a blessing to be used by the Savior as these two women are!”
