Do you ever just want someone to help you figure life out - to tell you how to win at work, what guys to stay away from, and what jeans rock your body shape? This audiobook is the perfect cocktail of sass and down-to-earth guidance to navigate your way to the life you want to live. With so much information at your fingertips, real success, good dates, and true friendships can still feel out of reach.

We have many within our society who, honestly, haven't had the support and encouragement they need to move forward into healthy adulthood. I know at different times in my life I wished there had been people who could step up and help, giving me healthy advice. Bianca is that adult who can tell it like it is and still be kind enough to encourage you towards positive change.
Through the anchor of the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, Olthoff shares specific reasons why Ruth is someone we should follow after, learn from and draw inspiration from. The complex story of what Ruth walked through is broken down into subjects for chapters.
Olthoff shares the stories of unique people she has ministered to through the years as well as examples of the struggles everyone deals with as they become an adult. The book addresses so many things that it is difficult to list them all, but be assured the important things are fully covered. Olthoff also gives insight into how our view of ourselves and who Christ sees us as can often differ. I love that she's not afraid to address difficult topics along with adding the insight from a therapist at the end of each chapter. This book is for anyone who has had issues with accepting the truth that adulting is hard to navigate!
One of my favorite parts of the book centered around her family's powerful story of redemption, second chances and new life in Christ. You will want to keep that highlighter handy, trust me!
If you've never heard of Bianca Olthoff, get ready. She's a powerhouse of a Bible teacher, honest and vulnerable. She has a great sense of humor and a passion for loving people. She has served in many ministry capacities and does not shy away from tough issues. She serves as pastor alongside her husband in Orange County, CA at the church they founded, The Father's House. She is also active in the non profit world, running a prision ministry called In The Name of Love. If you enjoy this book, then also take a look at her prior book, "Play With Fire."
Don't miss this one!
I love Bianca's understandable deep dive into Ruth's life and what we can learn from this book in the Bible. I also like Dr. Deb's Thoughts From A Therapist sections. You get a mix of inspirational and informational learning. Love that.
If you feel a little stuck, this book is for you. That's where I was and it's like Bianca came over to sympathize, cheer me on, then kick me in the behind to get me moving towards a...well...a life that didn't suck!
