Week One // The Best Yes

Welcome to the Winter 2015 Book Study hosted by The Imperfect Vessel! - imperfectvessel.com

Never-ending to do lists, overwhelmed schedules, and running ragged from the side effects of the disease to please; I get it! From one dark-circles-that-never-go-away woman to another, I fully understand!

Here we are in the year 2015, a world of technology and instant-gratification, yet we seem to be working harder rather than using the advancements from recent years to allow ourselves to slow down and take notice of life happening around us.

And then I asked you to add one more thing to your schedule by participating in this 8-week book study, and I’m thankful that you agreed to join me, but how are you possibly going to make it all work?

That is where The Best Yes comes in.  This book, from best-selling author Lysa TerKeurst, is going to be the most important book (next to the Bible, of course) in your life for the next few weeks, as it guides you in learning how to change your way of thinking, planning, and doing life, with more intention and ease.

Are you ready for some of that?  I thought so!  Let’s get started!
