The Finishing School by Valerie Woerner

In The Finishing School Valerie Woerner shares her personal stories of her quest to experience a well-lived life. She delves into topics such as prayer, bible study, self-control, dealing with distractions, friendship, hospitality, forgiveness, contentment, and many more other attributes.

Within each chapter Valerie provides lessons she has learned from her life as well as steps or tips to achieve growth in each area. This book provides lots of growth opportunities for readers.

One of the things she shared that caused me to pause and consider happened in her chapter on Bible Study. She mentioned about allowing God to use scripture to reveal more of who He is instead of trying to figure out how the Bible speaks to us personally. We can learn more about God's character when we aren't focused on ourselves.

I found this book to be thought-provoking and recommend it.

This book was provided free for review by the author - 2015.
