8/52: Every Woman Has a Story

Every Woman Has a Story by Daryl Ott Underhill, 2/5 Stars
This book really highlights our fear of change. It seems that, especially for women, an idea of what life should look like is developed at a very young age... and then life... happens, and it happens without consulting the Plan. I think we should take it upon ourselves to expect the unexpected so that we may take advantage of the opportunity or endure the trial, and we need to do so as parents, siblings, children, friends, and individuals. Got it? Okay, GO.

It was difficult to read it over the course of two days, and I likely would have been better off reading it as I read my Warrior of the Light, an excerpt or two each day. Why? Because the women that have submitted their stories deserve to for them to be heard, contemplated, and applied to our own lives.
