Blogger Review August 30, 2012
A book about the things that stress women out and how to overcome those obstacles on your life.
Not having read it completely, as it is set up as a devotional, I will basically give you an over view of what I think so far.
Sarah takes you through her book where she focuses on certain things in each chapter. Such as, body image, friendships, careers, money, and dating.
At the end of each chapter she has a couple of pages where you can put your thoughts down and what you would like to change in your life.
Knowing what I have read so far I am looking forward to reading the rest.
Hope you enjoy.

Blogger Review June 14, 2012
Sarah wrote the book towards women in their twenties. The book includes ten primary chapters. Two of those focused on one topic. Each of those chapters offers a different stress point in a young woman’s life. Sarah refers about Jesus throughout the book.
The purpose of bringing in Jesus is to allow for a better interaction and relationship with him. I found eight words in the introduction that stood out (capitalization my doing): Godly success, Godly purpose, and Godly well-being.
Sarah has allowed space in each chapter for journaling exercises. The journaling exercises allow you to really get into and relate to the book. I found that by the end of the book I had written 15 typed pages worth and more than 6,038 words. That is something I have never done for a book.
I wish to share a personal experience that I have had with this book. Towards one of the chapters at the end of the book, I had an experience. Jesus Christ himself appeared to me. While neither of us said anything, it caused me to cry and to break into prayer.
I was not sure what to expect when I started the book. As I grew into it, I found myself connecting with it on a personal level. The book provided a means for me to growth into my faith. The areas of faith that I have grown into were previously areas that I was spiritual weak.
I would recommend this to every young woman in her twenties. I promise you that you would not be disappointed with it.
Sarah Francis Martin has a passion to encourage and relate to women in their twenties, and is honored to do so through She Seeks, the 20-something ministry of Proverbs 31. Her relevant and conversational style will lead young adult readers to live out the Kingship of Christ in everyday life in order to find godly success, purpose, and well-being. Obsessed with pink lip gloss and all things artsy-crafty, Sarah lives with her husband and son in North Carolina. Her ministry, LIVE IT OUT!, is a space for 20-somethings to connect with one another and grow closer to Jesus.
Disclosure: I received Stress Point: Thriving Through Your Twenties in a Decade of Drama free of charge by BookSneeze through their blogger program. All that I was required to do was write a review of the book. The review was not required to be positive. The opinions expressed herein are my own.
