“A Woman Overwhelmed” is a phrase with which many women can relate. But what would happen if we could see the insanity in our pace and embrace our overwhelming God? There is a reason they say that a woman’s work is never done– because it isn’t! As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed . . . not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant–filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy. In A Woman Overwhelmed, best-selling author Hayley DiMarco shares biblical insights and personal stories to offer a glimpse at the comedy of an overwhelmed life while encouraging us to discover the depths and heights of God’s love and power. Be empowered to find freedom in becoming overwhelmed with who God is–by learning to focus on what we know about God so that we can hold onto faith even when it seems that all is lost. For it is when an overwhelmed woman gives up the mission of me and exchanges it for the mission of God that being overwhelmed becomes a good thing.
This book is one that I think many women can not only relate to, but will find something of value from reading it. The author uses a combination of personal stories, along with Biblical stories and scriptures to talk about a variety of topics. At the end of each chapter, there is a section called, “Thoughts to Ponder” which contains questions to help you further understand what was discussed in the chapter and relating it to your own life. Everyone feels overwhelmed sometimes and this book gives some very helpful advice on how to try and focus more on a God filled life.
