The Finishing School REVIEW

So this isn't really my type of book, but when I was offered the opportunity to review The Finishing School, I thought...WHY NOT?! And I'm so glad I did! First, let me preface by stating that I do a lot of reviews. A LOT! And usually there is a nicely printed, usually on letterhead of some sort, letter thanking me for my time, etc. Never, until this review, have I ever received a handwritten thank you note from the author! That was an instant plus! So thoughtful, and so caring to take the time to personalize a note for me! I felt Joy, and that is EXACTLY what this book teaches. 

In the finishing school, you will learn:

~ 3 keys to experiencing joy
~ 4 steps to combating fear and anxiety
~ 5 tips for intentional Bible study
~ 6 keys to a rest-filled Sabbath
~ 7 ways to make prayer happen daily
    and much more!

I can honestly say this book could not have come at a better time. I have been living in such a stress filled, lack of joy, fear and anxiety ridden state for so long that chaos was reigning. Valerie's writing is so calm and refreshing, and.....easy going. It really feels like you are having a conversation with a dear friend who truly cares about your and your life and happiness and well being. This book will bring you closer to your work and walk with the Lord, and closer to yourself.

Each lovely written chapter ends with a worksheet to help you on your journey to a better, more joyful YOU! Best of all, you will also find a recommended reading list to delve deeper into the topics you choose. I really think this book is a great asset to everyone, especially everyone who needs a boost! This book has it!
