Do you feel like you need to make a change in your attitude and perspective, but aren’t sure how to do it? Do you want to open yourself up to a life where you can feel God’s love transform you and bring out the person that God made you to be? Elisa Pulliam’s “Meet the New You” will help you on this journey. Elisa Pulliam is a life coach and mentor who has written this book to help the women who know that they can be better, but aren’t sure how to even take the first step.
Each chapter is a single day and a single step to take in order to really figure out what makes you tick and how you might need to make a few tweaks. Peppered throughout the chapters are bible verses and real life examples. Ms. Pulliam writes in a very conversational style so you feel like she’s sitting right there actually talking to you. Bringing up her own personal struggles that she experienced when she went through the process helps you to feel like you aren’t alone.
The great thing about this book is that at the end of each chapter/day there are multiple questions and activities to help you utilize the information that you’ve just learned. One day you work on a list of priorities to figure out just what is most important to you right now and where all of your time is going; then later on there is an activity that helps you to determine your passions in life and what your purpose is based on those passions. All of this is surrounded by Biblical passages and reminders that God has made you as you are and He loves you no matter what.
Unless you’re doing this as a group study, you can take your time working through it. Take it at your own pace, even if that means you don’t move on to Day 5 until two weeks after you first started this journey. All of us move at different speeds, so don’t be discouraged if you don’t think that you’re making progress. You are making the progress that you’re meant to make. Why? Because to quote something I learned recently, “God don’t make junk.”
I received a copy of this book from Blogging for Books in return for my review.
