This book is a solidly Christian therapy book. It's point is that saying yes, whole heartly to the world can make us a better and happier person. It is detailed and has fun and helpful examples.
There are thought provoking questions at the end of every chapter that will help you exaim your life. ( )

I love the idea of this book. However, I have started it more than a few times, to just put it back down. It seems like more of a book to be used in a study group than for individual reading. ( )

"Your Sacred Yes" is a very good, thought provoking book. I know I will be praying more about what God wants me to do before I commit to things. I want God's best for me and my family and after reading this I feel better equipped to make better decisions. Will keep for a reference book for sure. ( )

This book was amazing. I received it at a perfect time in my life. In her book, Susie shared personal accounts of how she addressed her need and tendency to overcommit. It was exactly what I needed to read and I have implemented some of her strategies in my life. I would recommend this book to overcommitted individuals everywhere. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764213318, Paperback)

Are you worn out from life's ought-to's and should-do's?

It's so easy to give away our time to things un-appointed by God. We commit to something because it's a good cause or there's a great need. Or maybe because no one else will help out. The result? The days blur together and we find ourselves overworked and underjoyed, desperate for a faith awakening.

In this practical and liberating book, Susie shares biblical ways to:

· Learn how--and when--to say no without guilt or shame
· Find a pace and perspective that matches God's best for you
· Discern man-made obligations from God-given invitations

Will you say yes to the One who will rejuvenate your soul?

Includes Reflection Questions for Personal or Group Use. A DVD Study Companion Is Also Available Separately.

"If your days feel more life-draining than life-giving, let Susie Larson show you how to reclaim the joyful, fruitful life God wants for you."--Mark Batterson, bestselling author and lead pastor of National Community Church

"Susie really opened my eyes to look for God's best when deciding where I spend my time. He doesn't give up on us because we made mistakes. He has a design and purpose to fulfill, and the enemy would love nothing more than to take us out with exhaustion and wasted time."--Caroline Barnett, co-pastor of The Dream Center and author of Willing to Walk on Water

"Saying yes to God is the most important decision you can make, but it shouldn't stop there. After beginning a relationship with Christ, we must constantly say yes to His influence, wisdom, and power in our lives. Your Sacred Yes will empower and equip you to say yes to a life of freedom, fulfillment, and significance. Say yes!"--Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv and author of From This Day Forward

"Challenging us to carefully consider our sacred responsibilities, Susie Larson uses her trademark transparent stories to compel us to rest more and to make the difficult decisions that will prioritize our relationship with God. If you find yourself in the rat race of life, Your Sacred Yes will give you the courage to slow down and say yes to the right things."--Pastor Nate and Jodi Ruch, Emmanuel Christian Center

"This is such a timely book for all of us. I am grateful that Susie said yes to writing these sacred truths. This book will strengthen and empower all of us to follow the voice of God with more boldness and clarity."--Brady Boyd, pastor of New Life Church and author of Addicted to Busy
