I like this little book which parallels nurturing your self by seeing to your own needs with stories from the Bible admonishing to do just that because you are worth it. Very short chapters make it easy to just open to any page and jump right in. It's nice. It's more personal than most and has more of a giving to yourself facet that does a lot to help you feel more taken care of.

In general, I enjoyed this book. I didn't know it was a Christian book at first, but was presently surprised when it was since I could relate with it a little better. It was difficult for me not to be slightly offended by some of the Author's "uncomplimentary references to housework" as she puts it. I identify with the term "Biblical Womanhood" more than I do with "feminism" since feminism tends to have a different meaning depending on who you talk to. Regardless, the book was a good "guide" to self-nurturing. The book is made up of very short chapters with exercises to help you go deeper in your reflection. This is nice, because you can work on one aspect of self-nurturing at a time with feeling like you need to sit down and read through the entire book at once. (although that is what I ended up doing) I can't say I learned anything new, it's pretty basic information and doesn't go very deep. I actually already do most of her suggestions naturally. But this may be much needed information for the person how has difficulty with self-esteem. I would say the biggest thing I got out of the book is the reminder that we need to take time to ourselves to reflect and get to know ourselves, because this is how we grow.

This book showcases the importance of taking care of oneself in order to be able to take care of others and to enjoy your life. The author lays out simple truths and ways to help you cultivate an attitude of self nurturing. She shows how to implement this into your life through examples and questions at the end of each chapter. These questions are thought provoking and beneficial to helping one find what makes them happy and feel self nurtured.

This book presents the basic message that the key to self-nurturing is to buy one's self "treats" of various types and to lean heavily on prayer to a higher power. Much of the advice verged on being trite [in my opinion]; sort of a "bumper-sticker" type philosophy. However, it is a quick read and not completely worthless; especially if you are a financially comfortable, white Christian lady.
