Review 1 for What Women Tell Me: Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep
Here is a book written by a woman, who has heard from thousands of women, writing to women of every age. Anita shares a candid view of friendships, and all that women desire and need. She tackles loneliness and depression. She grabs hold of the subject of beauty and what it really means to look beyond the shell that carries our heart. She takes us through her childhood into divorce and even relationships with family. This is a book for every woman. We hide so much. We put on a mask and no one really knows how we feel. Anita shares how it is time to let others in and take a chance. She explores abuse and sexual brokenness in marriage. This would be a perfect book for a small study. A great way to encourage other women to share beyond what we want others to think about us. This book is challenging and thought provoking. Anita shares stories of biblical women who struggled just as we do and teaches us it's okay to reach out and be real. I enjoyed this book greatly. It would be a blessing for any woman to read.
This book was a gift from Zondervan for it's review.

Review 2 for What Women Tell Me: Finding Freedom from the Secrets We Keep
It's what every christian women needs to read!

What a refreshing book! I have been waiting for a book like this for a very long time! This book not only tells genuine stories from the life of Anita herself, but also of other christian women who openly share their own struggles and sin issues. This book has caused me to evaluate my own life as a woman who strives daily to be more like Jesus and also discover what secrets I'm harboring and how I can be REAL and allow other women to know that I'm not perfect! It's ok to show other women who I really am: a sinner, saved by grace through faith.

I intend to purchase additional copies of this book for friends. Anita, by telling her own story, has reached out to women on a very personal level, helping us to see that there comes a time when we need to unburden our souls with trusted friends.
