Book Review: What Women Want

What Women Want: The Life You Crave and How God Satisfies
By Lisa T. Bergren and Rebecca Price

About the Book

The title of this book really, really intrigued me. Maybe it’s because I’m at a place in my life where I’m not sure what I want. I’m forty, my youngest child is 15-years-old, I’ve been married for just over twenty years and I’m not sure where to go from here. A book about what we as women want sounded pretty good to me.

And I wasn’t disappointed. Taken from a national survey, the authors, Lisa T. Bergren and Rebecca Price have delved into the hearts of women to find what’s important to us and better yet, how God completely satisfies our hearts.

I loved how the survey answers were interjected throughout each chapter; women sharing struggles as well as triumphs that were honest and heartfelt. Many times I found myself shaking my head in agreement, because I felt that way too. Transparent Christianity, you gotta love that! There are also exclusive interviews with Christian women from all walks of life. Women such as; Shaunti Feldhahn, Liz Curtis Higgs, Barbara Rainey and more!

What Women Want includes chapters about friendships, contentment, purpose, your relationship with God and others (as well as many other topics). I admit that two chapters shouted to me: Your Relationship with God and Body by God. Maybe it’s because of my own soul searching and new way of eating, but these two chapters made me think about what I am doing (or not doing) and why. The Bible study portion helped me to dig deeper and really (as it says at the end of each study) live it out!.

This book is perfect for a small group or woman’s Bible study. I adore the idea of a group of women, meeting, sharing, praying and really helping each other to grow in Christ. In our too busy world this book is an anchor to help women see what it is they really desire and how God Satisfies.
