The Finishing School by Valerie Woerner

I received this book from Litfuse group in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: August 11, 2015
Number of pages: 228
Genre: Self-Help

Are you tired of waiting for change to happen in your life? Do you feel stuck, even though you want to live more intentionally?

In today's world, our most precious pursuit of a life well lived gets squeezed out by the silliest of things: binging on Netflix or ice cream, shopping trips for things we don't need, bad habits we can't seem to get a handle on, and so much more. Valerie has been there despite knowing what she wanted for her life. Actually do it? That's the challenge.

After gobbling up all the non-fiction and self-help books her donut-filled belly could handle, she decided it was time to put her knowledge to good use and start actually living it out. You will hear about her journey through victories and plenty of failures and find practical tips to apply to your own pursuit of holiness. You will find homework at the end of each chapter that includes a worksheet to put real change in motion for your own life as well as recommended books to further study those topics that really test you.

What did I think about this book:
This is the first book I have read by this author and I was not sure that I wanted to read it but the title pulled me in. I am now happy that I have read it. I felt connected with the author in that she was reading all the non-fiction and self-help book she could find, which is what I seem to do. Now I need to take a piece of her advice and start living these books out including this one. The homework at the end of each chapter really help to put what she is trying to tell you in perspective as well as she gives you more resources to use in your life. Her writing style makes the book easy to read and not so dry as some self-help books can be. This will be a book that I will read more than once. I also think this is a good book for not only adults but also a great graduation gift.
