Your Sacred Yes by Susie Larson

In Your Sacred Yes, Susie Larson addresses those of us who may be worn out from all the things we believe we “should” do.  We go, go, go and do what’s thrown at us without considering whether it’s even part of God’s plan. 

Larson addresses the different types of “yes” we come across - ones that simply keep us spinning and the ones that lead us in the direction God has for us.  Each chapter is incredibly insightful and comes across as conversational rather than preachy. At the end of each chapter, she offers questions for personal and group study and a faith declaration to make a commitment to positive change.

These are some of my top takeaways from the book:

  • When we live like the rest of the world with our busyness, we miss the things of God
  • List current activities in your life & the significance or impact that results from each one. (You may find things to stop doing!)
  • If you don’t know & believe what God says about you, you’ll look to others for affirmation
  • Respond quickly when God calls you to something
  • Be open to God’s nudge for changes, even in the good things
  • Sometimes the needed change is your perspective
  • Be consistent in the small things that help you grow
  • Private choices ultimately bear public fruit

This book is good for women at all stages of life: young, old, working, unemployed, married, single, etc… The chapters are short and practical and there’s no condemnation in them.   Susie Larson comes across as very motivated to help people live their best lives.
