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 (
I loved this book! I read it at a time in my life where I was stressing out about each of these things, and each chapter pinpointed exactly how I dealt with each stress point, and verses that tell us exactly how God wants us to deal with them. A few stress points I didn't think affected me much, but as I read those chapters I realized they did affect me. It was a pleasant surprise, and helped grow my faith quite a bit!

One thing I was upset about, is since I read the ebook, I had to have a separate journal for the journal questions. Obviously not that much of a deal-breaker, but I wish now that I read the physical copy instead.

If you're in your 20s and are struggling to make it through, read this book! It will help you hang in there through the tough times.

I received this book free for review from Booksneeze. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.

  1. I am looking to read this book also, but I am not too sure that it will apply to me. A mom of 2- one is 12; one is 4 months. Engaged. Living on a shoestring.
