It's Okay, Not to Be Okay ~ Shelia Walsh

I am a big fan of Sheila Walsh and have been for years.  I have read most of her books and was so happy when this one came out to add to my collection.  Usually Shelia tells her life story in her books and mixes it with bible teaching.  This one is different than her normal writing and it is a great book.
Shelia teaches us that it is okay to be normal and not the normal, by knowing that God loves us and we only need to be ourselves for him.  Each chapter she teaches us about how to let go and not feel like we have to be living for everyone else.  She takes on the learning journey step by step in each chapter: you will start out by a verse, Shelia's story, what the bible tells us, steps/notes, and at the end questions for you to review and renew your new goal of loving God and yourself.

I would recommend this to anyone and any age, this book is exactly what society needs in today's world.  I read this from cover to cover because I couldn't put it down, now I am going back and reading each chapter, answering questions and taking time to really learn.  This is a great ladies bible study, teen group study, a book to read with friends or just do on your own.  I loved this book and will recommend everyone to read and give as a gift.  (great for the Holiday season coming up)
