Are you making the difference you should?

You Matter More Than You Think: What A Woman Needs To Know About The Difference She MakesYou Matter More Than You Think: What A Woman Needs To Know About The Difference She Makes by Les Parrott III
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

We are using this book as part of our Bible study materials at our church. What peaked my interest most was how did the author process and deal with the traumatic news: her father, a pastor, had been having an affair and was leaving them for the other woman. While this is what I was curious about, the book focuses on how we make a difference—whether those differences are big, small, or even cause a domino effect. But it isn't just a pep talk reminding us that we do indeed make a difference, she also reminds us not to get so caught up in making a difference for others that we neglect ourselves.

The only thing I didn't like is the way she seemed to devote two chapters to gender differences. I agree men and women are different, but I don't think making an impact should be analyzed according to whether you're a man or woman.

This book shouldn't just be read by someone who is questioning why they are on this earth or what they can do with their life. I think this book is also for the woman who knows what her gifts and talents are and believes she is using them to God's glory. It definitely made me take a second look at how I'm serving where and if there are any changes I should make.
