Same Story, New Life

Same Story, New Life by Jan Silvious uses the stories of some of the most memorable women in the Bible, including Naomi, Leah, Rahab, Deborah, Hannah, Anna, Jehosheba, Abigail, Naaman's servant, Elizabeth, and present-day women. She uses their experiences to show women that through all situations, we can face different aspects of our life and follow God through our biggest struggles.

The chapters include: Realize it’s time, Don’t be held hostage by the past, Ask yourself good questions, Change your “I Can’t” to “I Can”. Delete the drama of the day, Forget the “What might have beens”, Discover the power of wisdom and courage, get past the resistance of fear, choose to bounce back, and the last chapter has not been written yet. There are stories told by both women in the Bible and women in the present who are facing these obstacles.

I really enjoyed this book and found it to be a very quick read. I read about two chapters each night as a devotional, and I loved hearing about these womens’ stories. I have always been interested in trying to learn more about Women in the Bible, but until this time, I hadn’t been able to find a book that captured my attention.
