    • I wanted to like this book, I really did, but I couldn't get past the utter lack of Christianity. Sure, the author mentions Jesus a few times, and she calls herself a Christian a lot, but there isn't a lot of scripture-based ideas. In fact, it's really a "you have the power within you" type of book, which to me isn't what the Bible says.Basically, this is a common-sense advice book. It's Dr. Phil's no-nonsense style mixed with Lauren Conrad's relate-ability. The stories are entertaining and the advice is a good reminder sometimes, but at the end of the day it's just pithy and a "you do what's best for you, I'll do what's best for me, and we'll all get along fine."Furthermore, most of her stories make it sound like her life was falling apart, but it all came out perfectly. Few of her stories are actual struggles. Her now husband broke up with her, and they were back together 2 days later. She's a college drop-out because she was offered her dream job at 19 years old. She didn't get pregnant immediately -- it took 8 whole months of trying! Her event planning business wasn't as successful as she had hoped -- because her blog took off like wild fire. Granted, there are some stories that make your heart go out to her, but ultimately it came across as arrogant.At the end of the day, this book would be great for 16 year old girls who don't know what life is like.
    • This shouldn’t be considered a Christian book. This is lukewarm at best. A recent post on FB will give you a little insight as to what kind of Christian you’re dealing with. She loves Jesus but cusses. Well dear, if you truly loved Jesus, you WOULDN’T cuss. Or any of the other worldly things you post about. Christians are called to be SET APART. Not to just “love Jesus” and continue to be worldly. Sad that women will fall for this feel good garbage.
    • My goodness I was sucked in due to the hype of this book. OMG, NO. Rachel is so entitled and preachy and comes across as exactly the kind of person I detest. Everything in the book was "me me me!!!" and offered no insight to real problems. This book made me irrationally angry, which I think is the exact opposite of what it was intended to do.
    • I received this book as a gift from a sweet friend last month and I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but halfway through the 2nd chapter I texted my friend, “yaas, girl! Thank you for knowing that this is exactly what my heart needs right now!” As a recently married, 30 year old, I can appreciate all of the wisdom and advice that Rachel shares in the book. She is brave, wise, inspiring, and strong and it is a JOY to read about her journey and what has helped her become so successful- both professionally & personally. She is also hilarious and has an amazing gift of being an exceptional writer. I have already purchased 2 copies to send as gifts to friends and got the audible version so I can listen in the car on my commute to work. I can’t recommend this book enough!
    • One big, long humble brag.
