Summary: This book really applied to my own life. It really has some great points for anyone who reads the book.

This book was recommended to me through a retreat I went to called Refresh Summit. The woman leading our discussions had read it and told us she recommended we do so as well since she really got a lot out of the book.



The Best Yes by Lysa Terkeurst is a Christian-based novel that basically discusses the fact that we often spread ourselves too thin and that it is helpful to take a step back and evaluate your priorities and where you should say no versus yes. That’s a pretty brief summary, so here is what Goodreads has to say:

Lysa Terkeurst is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In “The Best Yes” she will help you: Cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love. Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no. Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom based decision-making process. Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your best yes today.

I’m not much into “self-help” or basically non-novel type books, however I really felt like I got a lot of out this book. It was easy to follow along and a few stories in each chapter really kept me focused and interested. I read about 3 chapters a week and was done with it in a month! I was surprised to see how much of the book really applied to my own life – I assumed it was more for a mom or someone much busier than I am, but it really has some great points for anyone who reads the book.
