More Than Just Making It

By | Book Reviews, Uncategorized | No Comments

More Than Just Making It by Erin Odom

 

In this candidly written 147 page book, Erin shares her family’s journey, beginning with a prosperous life and then hitting rock bottom. She shares their struggles and how they eventually got back up on their feet and are now more than just making it.

 

One of the insights I picked from the book is the need to identify whether what one has is spending or an income problem, and then taking appropriate measures. This is a book that I will definitely refer to a few more times.

 

Coupled with examples of real-life problems and solutions, this is a book I would encourage every woman facing a difficult financial season to read. It will encourage you that you are not alone and that there is hope even in the midst of such great darkness.

Boundaries For Your Soul

Boundaries For Your Soul
By Alison Cook, PhD and Kimberly Miller, MTh, LMFT.

This 171 page book encourages someone to look at various aspects of his/herself and see how they all come into play in life. The author suggests that the emotions we experience are for a good cause, and we should try to find out the message that those emotions are passing to us. We can then see that certain parts of ourselves (our souls) are trying to protect us and giving us warnings about various situations.

I thought it was a good way of looking at the chaotic sides of our lives and trying to learn from them, appreciating that they are all trying to protect us from further pain as perceived by them.

The book deals with emotions such as anger, fear, anxiety, sadness, envy and desire, guilt and shame among others. The author encourages the reader to acknowledge what’s going on, appreciate that it’s for the reader’s own good, give the burden to the Lord and then move ahead positively from there.

This is a book to read slowly as one applies the lessons learnt. The book also comes highly recommended by other authors, pastors and lead practitioners in various related fields.

The Road to Freedom: Healing From Your Hurts, Hang-ups and Habits
Johnny Baker

This is a well written book about how to be free from addictions. The insightful content is presented in a conversational, entertaining and sometimes hilarious style and the author shares very candidly about his struggles and victories in various areas of his life.

One of the things that stood out for me is that covering up our problems has a way of making them worse, because we don’t get to deal with them. So they keep festering and growing and mutating into worse and worse shapes untill eventually we are no longer in control of what we thought was our special, hidden secret.

It is importannt to find a safe place in which to talk about the things that trouble us, so that we can begin a journey towards victory and healing. That is the one of the ways to break free from the bondage of our hurts, hang-ups and habits.

This is a book to read over and over again, even as a reference book for when things seem to get out of hand, whether for oneself or for a friend. It is also a good resource for ministers.
