Girl, Have I Got Good News for You: Heart-To-Heart Encouragement for Hurting Women

Thelma Wells, Author Thomas Nelson Publishers $14.99 (176p) ISBN 978-0-7852-7547-3
Women seeking to-the-point spiritual advice on some of life's toughest problems can find solace in this candid, if superficial, guide. Wells, a popular speaker and author of What's Going On, Lord?, responds to the hurts and concerns expressed to her by women all over the country. Written in an intimate style, this motivational manual touches on several--perhaps too many--topics. From anger and addiction to depression and debt, Wells uses her straightforward Southern voice to encourage women to press on. Each chapter presents a petition for help, practical and spiritual advice and a prayer. Commenting on divorce, Wells writes that Christian women ""have all been sold the storybook edition of marriage."" She believes there will always be some difficulty when two people are in any kind of relationship. Wells assures women who are questioning their own sexuality that she understands because her own sister ""was convinced for most of her life that she was born a lesbian."" She reminds the women that there is no condemnation for Christians. Without being judgmental, Wells encourages the reader ""to study the Scriptures for yourself, Baby, and pray that the Holy Spirit who lives within you will show you who you are."" While providing personal stories from her own life and the lives of others, Wells attempts to speak the truth in love. (Apr.)
