Book Review: Stress Point

Stress Point Thriving Through Your Twenties in a Decade of Drama is a book by Sarah Francis Martin.  I choose to read this book when the deadline at work was stressing me out to the extreme, as well as some other things in my life as well.  Unfortunately for me, this book was not what I needed. (A little bit too reliant on the Bible for me) So I skipped the majority of the Bible related items to see if I could get anything out of it at face value.

However, this book may be what you need.  The book has an area for a journal at the end of each chapter which asks you questions about your own life based on the situations you just read in the chapter. I do like when books have things like this because it makes it a lot easier to put things into perspective with my own life.

Then each chapter also has “Worshiping at the Throne of the King”, with more journal questions based on items that it instructs you to read in the Bible.  The next part is “Waiting at the Throne of the King” and a 3rd area of Journal questions, again based on Bible readings. Finally – “Finding Focus in Him Alone” and another journal area.  Then we have “Stress diverted” which includes prayer prompts for your journal.

About the Book

Want to ditch the drama and thrive through your twenties?

Body image. Friendships. Career. Money. Dating. All these issues and more serve as points of stress for the 20-something woman, and combined they can make for a decade of drama in a girl’s life. Sarah Francis Martin is the slightly older girlfriend who’s been there, done that, and got the not-so-cute t-shirt. Through this interactive Bible study, Sarah helps young adult women address each stress point by encouraging them to wait on the Lord, worship Him, and make Him the focus of their lives.

In Stress Point you will:

  • Find interactive chapters covering ten stress points for the 20-something woman
  • Dig through Scripture to apply truth to each stress point
  • Engage with real, raw, and relevant stories from girlfriends just like you
  • Journal through each chapter to engage with God in a meaningful way
  • Interact with Sarah through her video blogs for each chapter
  • Connect with your girlfriends in a Stress Point Survival Group; leader guide included

Sarah Francis Martin has a passion to encourage and relate to women in their twenties, and is honored to do so through She Seeks, the 20-something ministry of Proverbs 31. Her relevant and conversational style will lead young adult readers to live out the Kingship of Christ in everyday life in order to find godly success, purpose, and well-being. Obsessed with pink lip gloss and all things artsy-crafty, Sarah lives with her husband and son in North Carolina. Her ministry, LIVE IT OUT!, is a space for 20-somethings to connect with one another and grow closer to Jesus (www.liveitoutblog.com).
