Same Life, New Story- Jan Silvious

Same Life, New Story: Change Your Perspective to Change Your Life

Same Life, New Story is designed to be a 10 week Bible study for women.  Jan Silvious shows us how we can change our life story when we feel stuck or hopeless.  She takes us for a look at the lives of ten Bible women to encourage women that we can change our life story by changing our perspective.  Well-known characters such as Naomi and Rahab as well as lesser known characters such as Anna and the little Israelite captive that became a servant to Naaman are introduced to show us how we can write a new life story.

I read the book through instead of completing the 10 week study.  Jan Silvious has excellent insights, and the exploration of these Bible characters and their stories was very thought-provoking.  The advice was presented in a straight forward, no nonsense manner with lots of real life examples as well as the Biblical character studies, making me feel like I was talking with Jan in person instead of just reading a book. 

I think the book would be great to use in a group as a Bible study to discuss with other women, but I enjoyed reading it straight through also.  This is definitely one I will pass on and recommend!
