Own Your Life how we can take responsibility for different areas of our life, while still allowing God to work in them. Sally Clarkson has filled each chapter with something we can own and take care of on our own. Each chapter shows us what our parts are in our own lives. This book enables all to see what areas they can work on in their life and what they can do to keep on the path to God’s Kingdom.
Countless times I have come across books that speak to me at just the right time in my life, when I need the contents and messages it has for me. This book has done just that, it has spoken to me at the right time in areas where I need it most. Even the people mentioned in the book spoke to my own life, such as the son’s name being similar to my own son’s name. I found a wealth of valuable information on how to make a home a home (I would like the Sally Clarkson to write a book titled “Home” which would deal exclusively with how to make a home a home in detail.). I also discovered valuable nuggets dealing with being a mom and a wife. There can be a lot of information relating to love in more than just one section. Love is the greatest commandment.
Each chapter starts off with a quote and a scripture verse relating to the chapter’s content. The content of the chapter holds examples/experiences from the author’s own life as well as from Biblical events. Towards the end of each chapter there are suggestions and questions of things the reader can ask themselves and do to progress in that specific area. After the questions there is a prayer that the author prays with the reader. For each prayer I made it personal and changed all the “us” to “me” or “I”. I found Own Your Life to be exceptionally powerful!
I highly recommend Own Your Life to all!
