Are you tired of anger destroying your life, health, and relationships? Or perhaps you're upset and have held it in for far too long. Guess what-you're not alone! A lot of women are angry, and they're blowing it! They vent it on the very ones they love the most and desperately want to stop but they don't know how.

This book interweaves powerful scriptural truths with practical, personal examples and prayer. Readers will learn to channel passionate emotions constructively. Anger is not wrong, it is how we express it and how far we take it that determines the outcome. For those really ready to be honest and get free, this book will light the way.

Difficult book to review because it was A) very different from what I had expected, and thus B) not very relevant to me, yet C) very well written.

I had assumed that it was a book on all aspects of being angry, meant both for those who got too angry and for those who didn't get angry enough. It turned out it was only aimed at the former, and as keeping my temper isn't really a problem to me, there wasn't much in the book I could use.

Lisa Bevere has an interesting and captivating way of writing though, and there were some chapters that were spot on - not keeping a grudge for instance, and giving an honest apology if you were in the wrong - so at the end of the day, I'm glad I read it, even if I didn't get as much out of it as I'd originally hoped.

If I friend this blog, am I allowed to be snarky? And make you answer questions about the books for me?
