Author of "The Blessed Woman Endeavor," "You Really Do Deserve Me," and "A Good Sandwich Can Save a Marriage," Tondeleya Allen believes that faith is the cure for what ails us and that women have enough grace and strength coursing through our veins to handle every ounce of pressure life sends our way.
I always know when a read a book by Tondeleya Allen, you better have a highlighter on hand or paper and pencil to take notes! You Inspire Me has done it to me again! I look down at my desk and see all kinds of gems that I found from this devotional, as actually there isn't any wisdom found here that we can't take away!
What I think is amazing starts off in the very first part of the book. It doesn't matter that Allen doesn't know us, that she doesn't know our past, or what we have already done with our lives up to now. Her quote from the book:
I believe that even your pain and heartache can be turned into joy and lessons. Your gifts can improve this world.
The positivity that is expressed in each chapter drives us forward and encourages us to forget the past and recharge ourselves:
Delegate when you can. Move as your energy, inspiration and time allows.
I always find a special chapter that jumps out at me...this one happens to be Live to Create. Allen shares a story about her mom that I believe implanted her gift of writing:
Whether I’m weaving words, mixing textiles, sewing without patterns or cooking without recipes, I enjoy experiencing the freedom and playfulness of expression.
A must read for all women in any stage of life, as you will be uplifted with God's love and faithfulness.
