This book may help someone else better than me. It is very heavily Christian in tone and that turned me off of it. As soon as I read that the premise the author worked from was that "God has a plan for your entire life," I had to put the book down. I have read many Christian-leaning books before without encountering such heavyhandedness. The author gives almost all of the credit to God, and I can't see why giving God credit will help self-esteem etc. I also should point out this book is aimed at women specifically, which is another thing that isn't clear at all until you open the book. (I am a woman, but I would still have preferred to know this was a book aimed at just one gender.)

This book is about how to become a little church lady. Mine was published in 1984, so there have probably been some updates in the new one, but it is about the basics of being on a church committee and getting along with people. I thought it was fascinating that someone had written down what I thought was passed on mother to daughter. (In my mother's case with; "What were you thinking? You can't say things like that, even if they are true!")
