I Want It All by Gwen Smith

Do you want that incredible life, the life that includes all God has for you? If you want it all, Smith writes, it's going to be a battle. She has written this book to help you dive into God's Word and become the woman God created you to be.

Her book is in three parts. First, she explores your longings and how God is the only One Who can fulfill them. She writes about the importance of grace and shares her own story. She reminds us that God is with you in all your trials, showing His strength in your weakness.

The next section is about the Holy Spirit in you, the reality of spiritual warfare, and what it means to walk in the Spirit. She helps you access the power of the Holy Spirit, giving practical ideas on how to defeat temptations. She also emphasizes resting in Christ.

In the last section, Smith helps you see how you can be a woman of impact. She helps you understand your value and purpose, to be salt and light. She encourages you to have your words be salubrious (you've got to read the book).

This book would be a great one to study in a small group of trusted friends. Not only are there questions at the end of each chapter for reflection, there is also a great Study Guide at the end of the book with Scriptures to read and questions to discuss.

If you want to live with God-courage, with great expectation of what God can do in your life, read this book. If you want all God has to offer, this book will get you on the path. If you want to live your life with eyes wide open to God opportunities, I recommend this book. It is packed full of insight and encouragement.

My rating: 5/5 stars.
