Book Review – Extraordinary Women
June 14, 2013
Today I finished my 10 week journey reading this wonderful book Extraordinary Women by Julie Clinton and Mary M. Byers. The subtitle of the book is Discovering the Dream God Created for You.
I purchased this book from Mardel a few months ago and began reading it 10 weeks ago. I usually try and do my TAG (time alone with God) time every morning after my workout and decided this was the perfect book for that. The book is divided into 10 segments with different titles for each week. The book is laid out so that you only read it 5 days out of the week so I would strive for Monday through Friday. Each daily page that you read is only about 2 or 3 pages long. The titles of the weeks are as follows:
- Week 1: Secrets to Living God’s Dream for Your Life
- Week 2: Secrets to Knowing God Really Loves You
- Week 3: Secrets to Meaningful Relationships
- Week 4: Secrets to Handling Testosterone
- Week 5: Secrets to Mastering Your Emotions
- Week 6: Secrets to Handling Imbalance
- Week 7: Secrets to Getting Through Tough Times
- Week 8: Secrets to Finding Freedom
- Week 9: Secrets to Creating an Intimate Relationship with God
- Week 10: Secrets to Making Every Day Count
There is a motivating quote at the end of each daily read along with journal prompts if you decide to keep a journal. I also like the fact that there are lots of meaningful scriptures throughout the entire book.
Overall I think this is a wonderful book for those wanting to keep a connection to God in their daily life. The book is very positive and uplifting – getting your day off to a wonderful start. This is the type of book that I will be able to apply to everyday life and will put it on my book shelf and read it again in years to come.
I will now begin to read Becoming the Woman I Want To Be by Donna Partow. It is another book that is set up to read on a daily basis. I read another book by her last summer called Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be and thought it was an excellent book. That is actually the book that taught me the acronym TAG – time alone with God.
I am in no way affiliated with the author or publisher of this book or any books mentioned in this post. I just enjoyed the book and wanted to write a review to share.

My ladies Bible study group just finished 12 Extraordinary Women by John MacArthur and it was fabulous. This one looks great, too – might have to read it when I finish the one I’m on now.
