From the moment I read the cover of Your Sacred Yes: Trading Life-Draining Obligation for Freedom, Passion, and Joy, I knew author Susie Larson was addressing a topic that matters to me and many busy people who are trying to do what God wants them to do with their lives.
With humor and candor, Susie Larson discusses the difference reasons we feel compelled to say yes to more obligations than we can sometimes handle. Throughout her book, Susie takes us on a journey of understanding and helps us see how God can use our time and talents better if we are focused on His will rather than secondary concerns. She discusses how we can discern the difference because the sometimes draining obligations created by people and opportunities God gives us to serve Him.
With clarity and compassion, Susie invites us to see how important and sacred our yes is, and how sometimes it is okay and best to say no to an invitation, even a good invitation, if it distracts you from what God wants you to do.
Overall, I enjoyed reading Your Sacred Yes. The book seemed a bit repetitive at times, but the message is so needed now. Bethany House gave me a complimentary copy of Your Sacred Yes by Susie Larson for my candid review.
