My  Thoughts:

Nicki Koziarz brings us a book that is a must for every woman to read/study!!!
To be honest when I received this book I looked at it and thought 197 pages, no big deal.  I'll finish it in 2 days. 
I say this because yes, it would have been easy for me to have read it in 2 days, but from page 1 I was drawn into this book.  I found myself not just reading this, but absorbing it.  It was so thought provoking that I would just stop and reflect on all I had read, then go back and reread sections.  
Let me tell you a little about the book. 

-As I said it's 197 pages in length.  
-It is divided into 5 sections where each deal with a habit.  
-Each section consists of two chapters.
-At the end of each chapter there is a section called Make It Stick which highlights important messages from the chapter.
-Then next comes To Be Hones which are questions for self reflection.
-At the end of the book Nicki has included Quitting Questions Verses
-Lastly the book ends with 5 Questions you should ask yourself before you quit something. 

Did you even know you quit?

My book was so pristine and bright when I first received it, but now it would look pitiful to anyone, but maybe me. I began underlying passages and jotting notes in the margins As I began reading the first thing I noticed was how the author opens her heart and shares. Suddenly it was like was having a conversation with a friend.   Her story touched my heart and made me ask myself questions.  Am I a quitter? Yes, but what's worse am I teaching my children to be quitters by example? 
There are many heroines of the Bible that we can take virtues from and apply it to our lives.  The author chose Ruth.  Have you ever read the book of Ruth?
For me when I think of Ruth constancy, truth and justice come to mind. Actually this book has opened my thinking about her.  I was reminded of faithful obedience
This is a book that I will reference time and again, especially when I think I'm about to quit or give up.  Yes, I will ask those five questions and pray to seek his guidance even in the smallest of things, like picking up my child from schoolYes, this book transformed my thinking and thereby me. It helped me identify areas of my life that I basically had given up on or didn't want to do the work necessary.  I could identify who I truly wanted to be then made goals to get there and started my journey.  
Also, there is a companion Bible study book available to go with this book if you are interested in doing a study group for this book. 

This is a book I would recommend to anyone.    

* I received this book from the author via the publisher for a honest review without bias or outside influence and was not required to write a positive review.
