The title of this book caught my attention when I was approached about the authors visiting Thoughts in Progress on their virtual book tour.
One of the authors (Bette James Laughrun) was in her 60s when she wrote this book, along with her daughter, Kathie Nelson, who was in her 30s. The sub-title of I WANT WHAT SHE'S GOT! is THE SECRETS OF CREATING AN OUTRAGEOUS LIFE. As we grow older, we tend to look for ways to improve our life and this sounded interesting.
The book is about self-motivating, along with spiritual guidance. It follows Bette Laughrun’s life as she discovers that there is more to living than what she was experiencing. In her early 60s, Bette said she felt as though she was dying despite the fact that she was perfectly healthy.
At the end of each chapter, there are several questions that ask you (the reader) to think about your thoughts and feelings on what you’ve just read.
There are seven main questions the authors ask you focus on to assess your life. An example of these questions is: Relationships - How can I make the time I spend with friends and family count? Each of the seven questions are then broken down into several more questions to help you evaluate your life. In addition, there is a wheel exercise that helps you rate the different segments of your life to see where you’re at and where you want to be.
I WANT WHAT SHE’S GOT! is the story of one woman’s journey from having what she felt was no purpose to finding a fulfilling life through her faith.

FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book as part of the authors’ virtual book tour. The book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
