I've read this book through as well as used chapters here and there over the past months. The author's premise is that an hour a day should be spent journaling as a structured discussion with God. The format to me is a bit stilted and hard to use, but it's certainly helpful to someone seeking improvement and closeness with God.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0425178196, Paperback)

Obtaining a balanced life is an aspiration that often leaves one feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. For Becky Tirabassi, the desire to transform herself from an overworked, selfish mother into a fit, focused woman led to concrete change. Based on biblical principals, Change Your Life is the "how to" of life change, written by a once-alcoholic party girl who now makes her living as a motivational speaker and author. "Long-lasting change begins with awareness and admission and can be achieved and sustained through accountability," she writes, after promising to motivate each reader to achieve "desired changes through a practical action plan." This action-plan is a four-component process focusing on the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental aspects of life. In each section Tirabassi asks poignant questions that aim at drawing out weak or imbalanced areas. She manages to prove that each facet is interrelated and actually can be balanced if we would take responsibility for our failures and make a concerted, daily effort.

Tirabassi's own testimony reveals a dramatic life change when she became a Christian, followed by reevaluating her out-of-control life years later. Now she uses a journal to turn balancing her life into a daily event. She confirms that although each and every person has different struggles and strives for different dreams, the biblical principals for balancing one's life remain the same. Those seeking transformation will notice that she refrains from using the biblical language for such things as sin (failures) and forgiveness (admission), hoping to attract those who have misconceptions about the Bible. While the Christian will most likely find the disciplines contained here refreshing and encouraging, the person who is groping to find God will hopefully hear and respond to the message that ultimately saves lives eternally--that of the Gospel. Change Your Life is the ultimate in spiritual self-help. --Jill Heatherly
