Book Review - "What Happened to my Life"

To me it seems as if I am sitting down with Danna Demetre chatting over cups of coffee as I read through her 40-day devotional book, "What Happened to my Life." Demetre would like her readers to find new passion, purpose and joy in their lives.
This book is split into 3 parts. The first part focuses on ways/areas that cause us to believe there is something wrong with us. This stems from expectations we may have, being discontent and trying to balance every area of our lives. The second paret focuses on being content and finding contentment. There are personal accounts from six different women. The third part has devotionals for 40-days for us to embark on this journey - 40 days of rediscovering our lives! Each day's devotional includes an account from Danna Demetre and has a Biblical perspective and verses tied in along with a section for us to write our reflections on the day's devotional.
This book will help each of us who embarks on this journey to change how we view and think about our lives. This book is realistic and straightforward so it is easy to follow and participate in, making it a very useful and worthwhile devotional book.
