    I got some positive takeaways from this book, but I would be careful about recommending it to just anyone.My main criticism was that this book is written for a very narrow demographic of women. It's not for single moms, not for underprivileged women. not really for women who have a lot of problems. Now, I fall into the demographic of women for whom this book WAS written, but I can see how many women will not relate to this book. While she had solid points, her examples were laughable. Maybe my p [...]

    I read this at a perfect time and it was just what I needed. I'm going to be candid and say that lately, in the past year or so, I have been struggling with balance. I have believed it to be more of a work-life balance but I now realize that I haven't been balancing my personal life very well either. I realize it all sounds cliché but in the effort of trying to "do it all", I probably wasn't doing any of it to my full potential. I knew I wanted to eventually read this book and that I wanted to [...]

    Run-on sentence alert:You know how there are some books where you were so touched and shaped by its message that, even though you've long since finished reading, you keep it in your bag to as a visual reminder of the lessons learned-- as if keeping it in your line of sight will somehow catalyst a magical process of osmosis wherein you don't have to reread the book in order to instantly remember the specific points that were so profound in the first place?Yeah, this is that kind of book.There are [...]

    I bought this book to read at a time when I was being asked to do multiple things between church, family and homeschool. I was torn and wanted to do it all or say no to it all. This book helped me tremendously. Decisions are hard and I wanted to make sure I was saying yes or no for all the right reasons. Lysa is amazing. What I received from this book was way more than just help with decision making. She is very transparent with her life and she has a wealth of knowledge. Her gift of writing is [...]

    Never is a woman so fulfilled as when she chooses to underwhelm her schedule so she can let God overwhelm her soul.I'm the type of person that thrives on busy. I enjoy organizing events, knowing that my days won't be boring, and making sure there are no long stretches of time that are unpeopled. I've even been known to get an adrenaline rush from the stress of looming deadlines. (Yeah, I know I'm crazy.) All that to say, this wasn't a book I actively sought out. I was making another purchase and [...]

    I started reading this book and thought "maybe I should read this at a later time. I don't have problems saying yes and no right now", but as I turned to the next page and the next I was finished before I knew it. I realized that this book is more than just about saying yes and no to situations to make your life easier or when you're feeling overwhelmed (although, yes, those are great reasons), you uncover a deep layer of who you are and where you want to be. Lysa Terkeurst is incredibly relatab [...]

    This book really spoke to me as balancing my time has been really hard for me over the last year or so. If felt similar to another book that I also loved Your Sacred Yes: Trading Life-Draining Obligation for Freedom, Passion, and Joy and I needed the message again.

    I enjoyed this book. I think it had a lot of good information on making wise decisions, and learning to be okay with saying "no" when we need to. I liked that the author included a lot of Scripture. Toward the end I was finding it a bit repetitive, but overall I think it was really good. There definitely is a certain target for this book; adult Christian women who are involved in ministry of some sort and have families, and I mostly fall into this so it was helpful for me.

    I liked this book, but I didn't love it. But you might. I'd like a 3-1/2 star option for this one. Here are some pros/cons:Cons:1. This book seemed a bit long (19 chapters) to cover the topic material. I felt some of the chapters could have been combined.2. There is not a straight Bible teaching book, so when I signed up for the online corresponding "Bible" study of this book, I felt a little misled. I would say this book is more suitable for a book club setting, and is not for a Bible study.3. [...]

    I love The Best Yes! Wise, warm, honest, funny, and do-it-now practical, this guide to making smart decisions is just the thing for those of us who have too much on our calendars and need help to stop the madness. Lysa has clearly lived and learned what works and what doesn't. Her stories, examples, and advice all ring true, and wisdom pours from every page. This is her best yet!

    Such a hard hitting, and timely book for med honestly, probably for most women I know. We are living in an age where "busy" is next to godliness, but I think that the constant state of doing to much is leading us astray.

    Great book! Great message Many things are underlined which is a good sign of meaningful things

    Source: self-purchase.Rating: 5 stars for excellent.Summary:The back cover of the book does not share the thrust of the book's emphasis. I purchased the book because of the author, secondly for the title and subtitle. The subtitle states the summary of the book perfectly: Making Wise Decisions In The Midst Of Endless Demands. If you ponder the subtitle, making wise decisions is what most Christians want to make; however, how can this be achieved? Lisa Terkeurst examines, explains, and answers th [...]

    This was a gift from a friend who is right, I needed it but still, here I am, dithering, dithering three or four stars? Humph. Yes, the irony is not lost on me. Dithering. About a book about making decisions for Pete's sake. ISo, let's get the bad news over with first. In the minus column we have:1) It took me for ever to read, even though it is an easy read. 2) Sometimes she annoyed me but I don't suppose everyone would find repetitive uses of the phrase pee pee pants quite as annoying as I did [...]

    Though I'm giving this book three stars, my heart may grant it four as I move away and contemplate what I've learned. This book, written to help women learn how to stop feeling overwhelmed with commitments and find their "Best Yes", does a pretty amazing job of rooting every precept heavily in Scripture. I valued this a lot, especially when so many self-help, Christianese books lack serious meat or insights that go past the surface.Her anecdotes, while too lengthy, were helpful in tying her tact [...]

    I think, because I'm an 'older' mom, meaning my kids are nearly out of the house, some parts of this resonated more than others. HOWEVER, I loved it, and would adore facilitating it in a small group. TerKeurst is one of the few authors in this genre whom I can read and not be put off by the saccharine/perfect follower of Jesus factor. For me, a person's willingness to learn with me and to be vulnerable towards changing as the Holy Spirit directs is priceless. With Lysa, I feel like I have a best [...]

    I enjoy Ms Terkeurst's books because she is so transparent in sharing her own struggles in the situation she is writing about. In this case, the desire to please others by saying YES, when sometimes the answer should be a gentle NO. One of my favorite quotes in this book, Saying Yes all the time won't make me a Wonder Woman, it will make me a Worn Out Woman! This is so true many times have i taken on tasks I am unsuited for or have little time to do a job well? Lysa shares many ways we can evalu [...]

    I could not have read this book at a better time, when I'm wrestling with what to say "yes" to and what I need to let go of in order to be the best me and have the best life possible. This book is insightful and refreshing and freeing-- ladies, do yourself a favor and pick this one up. You'll feel empowered and ready to conquer your life boldly and wisely afterward!

    The central insight of this book - that overwhelming our schedule leads to spiritual underwhelming (aka burnout, aridity) is excellent. Good data to back everything else. I know that this was targeted at women but should be read widely throughout the Christian community because of that impulse to do instead of just be. Great insights on where our spiritually deadening business comes from.

    The book has a great message, but it's really more for women who are moms. Maybe I missed something in the description, but as a single woman who isn't a mom, I couldn't relate to a lot of the motherhood-related stories, which was most of the book.

    Maybe timing is everything, but so many times I found myself involuntarily audibly connecting with the wisdom Lysa shares in this book.I'm not one to re-read books, but I will definitely revisit the highlights of this one!

    This book was a breath of fresh air. The word “yes” is in the title but some of the most helpful parts of the book were about saying “no.” When do you say no? Why do you say no? How do you say no? Other helpful questions were explored: How do we balance the guilty tug of doing more for others while also recognizing the God-given limitations of our minds and bodies? Is saying yes to a lot of little, immediate things making it hard to say yes to a bigger, time-consuming commitment that you [...]

    I think my issue with this book is it lacked nuance - so it felt longer than it needed to be. The overall point of the book is good - say yes to things that you can give your best at. But I would have liked more examples of what a hard, “best yes” looks like. The examples seemed trivial up until the end, when the author mentioned heavier topics (like marital struggles).This book is likely really good and timely for a lot of readers, but I didn’t feel like I fell into the audience she was w [...]

    I've needed this book for a very long time. If you struggle with people pleasing even a little bit, this book is essential. So good.

    I read this book as part of a Bible study that I lead for 6 weeks with young women in my church. I had heard many good things about this book, and knew I liked Lysa TerKeurst's writing so I chose this book for our group to study and I am so glad I did! We had an amazing 6 weeks reading through this book, as well as using the videos and study guide. If you are not reading this book with a group or using the other study materials, you will still really enjoy this book. It can definitely still be r [...]

    5 stars!!! Holy cow did this take me an abnormally long time to read! Spiritual books tend to have that affect on me, but I really think God put it on my heart to soak all of it in as much as I possibly could. One (of the many) qualities I do not have is the ability to be assertive & make decisions, so I have taken to heart a multitude of wise words from Lysa. This was my first time reading one of her books, and I guarantee you it won't be the last. She has such a compassionate and understan [...]

    The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands by Lysa TerKeurst gets 4 stars!!I only purchased this book when I noticed the drastic Kindle version sale price. I put off reading it because I didn't think I would find its material relevant. I have no problem saying, "No!" I assure you! Needless to say, I was surprised by how MANY passages I highlighted by the end of the book. Lysa TerKeurst has a gift of making you feel like you are one of her dearest friends, just lounging a [...]

    This book is an easy read, very amusing at times, but don't let that fool you into thinking there's nothing of substance to be found. It addresses a problem that many of us deal with on a daily basis: over-committing ourselves (for a variety of bad and not-so-bad reasons). Not every example she gives is going to help every woman, and it's not about solving the very grave problems of war, poverty, terrorism or other issues that stare us in the face every day in this world of ours. It does, howeve [...]

    Another great book by TerKeurst. In this book she points out that our super fast paced life leaves little room for personal connection and divine appointments. She also makes the point that giving or receiving the answer of "no" is not the end of the world, nor a terrible thing. Lysa encourages you to no longer let the demands and requests of others dictate the path of your life, but to stop and weigh what saying, "yes" to the task will really cost you in time, finances, emotion, and well being. [...]

    Starting this book was more of a commitment to read it because someone loaned it to me and I wanted to get it back to them. I haven't ever had much of a problem saying no to things. If anything I say no to too many things. And I didn't particularly want to start saying yes more. But as I turned the pages, I was sucked into the wisdom that was woven so deeply in the words. Simply saying yes or no is NOT all this book is about. It is chock full of moments that hit me so hard that I couldn't help b [...]
