Be prepared to laugh, to cry, and to be forever changed! Being a homeschool mom and wife with all of the challenges it brings has often left me wondering "is this all there is?" It's so easy to let yourself get pushed to the wayside as you look after family and friends, but when you do, you miss out on giving the gift of you. You are a gift - and Chrystal reminds you of that quite often in her book. Emotions aren't dictators, circumstances don't define you - you can be all God created you to be with just a little (or in my case, a WHOLE LOT) of discipline. Chrystal has broken all the chapters into bite-sized pieces with reflection questions at the end of each chapter along with a summary sentence and supporting Scripture. This book is written as though you and Chrystal are sitting across the table from one another sharing your life stories. She encourages you and gives you practical steps to move you in the direction you need to go, because that girl inside you - the one who dreams big and has aspirations for her future - she's still there! (As an aside, I recommend lots of tissues )
About This Item
Have you wandered from the life you want to live? Chrystal Evans Hurst shares raw and vulnerable stories from her own life to let you know how you too can find your way back after a few missteps. Over 100,000 copies sold!
What happens when a woman looks at herself in the mirror, lingering just a little longer than usual and realizes that she no longer recognizes the person staring back at her? What does she do when she sees that, somehow, her life has drifted away from all her original hopes, dreams, or plans?
Speaker, blogger, and writer Chrystal Evans Hurst wrote this book because she was that woman. One day she realized that she had somehow wandered from the life she was meant to live.
Chrystal since discovered that this moment of awareness happens to lots of women at different seasons of their lives. Poor decisions, a lack of intentionality or planning, or a long-term denial of deep hopes and dreams can leave a woman, old or young, reeling from the realization that she is lost, disappointed, or simply numb.
And she just needs encouragement.
This woman simply needs someone to hold her hand, cheer her on, and believe with her that she is still capable of being the person she intended to be.
Chrystal uses her poignant story of an early and unexpected pregnancy, as well as other raw and vulnerable moments in her life, to let readers know she understands what it's like to try and find your way after some missteps or decisions you didn't plan on. In She's Still There Chrystal emphasizes the importance of the personal process and the beauty of authentically sharing your journey one girlfriend to another. It's a book of "me toos," reminders of the hoped for, and challenges for the path ahead--to find direction, purpose, and true satisfaction.

A Must Read!
As I started reading this book, I laughed, I cried, I sat and stared into the ceiling... I saw myself over and over and over again throughout the pages. When Chrystal says she's talking to you, she's telling the truth. The book speaks to the reality of who I am and as I near the empty nest season of life, I am assured that I can find the girl in me who has been so many things to so many people and rescue her so I don't get lost on my journey back. I've learned to be careful of what I say about myself. Remembering that my "drifts, decisions, and collisions don't define" me and so much more! So if you seem to have lost your way as you wind your way through different seasons of life, grab hold of this book, get ready for the ride of lifetime, and put on your cape to become your own superhero and rescue the girl in you! On a scale from 1-10, I rate this book as follows: • Readability - 10 • Challenge - 10 • Encouragement/Inspiration - 10 • Godly Wisdom - 10 I highly recommend this book for any woman looking for encouragement, self evaluation, and self improvement. There's also a study guide available!! Happy Reading! Thanks, Chrystal for allowing us a peek into your life for inspiration and encouragement. Thank you for being a model for other women!

She's Still There is AMAZING!!!!
OMG! There are so many adjectives and verbs I could use to describe Chrystal's new book. From the Foreword by Priscilla Shirer I was in utter tears. Every chapter I could see an area in my life that connected with Chrystal's. At every turn of the page I kept thinking, “Chrystal is my SISTER!” This book was (is) so relatable to my life. From Chrystal getting pregnant young, being a single parent, our love for a Hershey bar with almonds, to the recent health issues of my husband. What I loved most was not just being able to see areas of my life, but seeing how Chrystal took those hard places and applied Biblical passages that allows me to see God in not just her journey, but my journey. If I didn't know better, I would think this book was made SOLELY FOR ME! The book is great because it is a combo (to me) of a devotional with real-life tangible application that points you to Jesus. At the end of each chapter there is a “Reflection for the Rescue.” In this section, there are Three R's: Remember (Like a recap of the chapter), Reflect (questions to reflect on your Rescue Journey), and Response (Being vulnerable, sharing with a trusted friend, identifying the next step of the Rescue). I can't lie, Reflections for the Rescue caused me to take a long hard and sometimes painful look at the girl I placed on hold; how and what I needed to do to RESCUE her. She's Still There helps you reconnect, re-identify with the girl in you. But most importantly, it connects you to the girl…the woman you are meant to be in CHRIST. This is a great book and a great read for women of all ages who are looking at their lives and asking God, “Where am I? How did I get her? And how do I find my way back to the person…the girl…the woman You created me to be?”
