Fresh Brewed Life

Fresh Brewed Life, a stirring invitation to wake up your soul, by Nicole Johnson came at the right time in my life!  Honestly, as I'm reading some of these chapters, I was thinking: "Wow, was this book written for me?!!"  Obviously, it was written for women in general, but it really got me thinking about my life and helped me dig deep emotionally.  Since this book has become my favorite out of all the books I've read recently, I want to give you the topics for each chapter:

Chapter 1:Surrender to God
Chapter 2:Encounter your journal
Chapter 3.Listen to your longings
Chapter 4: Embrace your beauty
Chapter 5: Interview your anger
Chapter 6: Savor your sexuality
Chapter 7: Celebrate your friendships
Chapter 8: Change your world
Chapter 9: Enrich your relationships
Chapter 10: Enjoy your freedom

Nichole shares honestly and openly about her life and what God has done to give her a fresh brewed life.  How he's changed relationships and given her new opportunities for growth. She encourages journaling, which I love, as a way to get emotions out on paper.  She approaches subjects that sometimes aren't focused on in churches today, but are necessary to further understand the way God made us as women. 

I will be looking at more of her books in the future.  This one was therapeutic for me, giving me so much to think about and to be thankful for in my life.  I will most definitely be reading it again.

Here's one of my favorite quotes from Chapter 7, celebrate your friendships: "Women are sisters who speak the same language, like many of the same movies, often enjoy eating off the same plate, and laugh over the guilt we feel for all the same things."
