Women increasingly find themselves pulled in many directions, striving to balance the needs of others with the need to nurture themselves. This pull is often exhausting and, sometimes, can lead to resentment or burn-out. So how do we manage our work and family and faith and ministry lives if we aren’t able to take care of ourselves as we also take care of others?
Renewed helps women understand the need to put themselves on “the list.” Through practical ideas and relatable anecdotes, readers can better understand their strengths and their passions—and address some of the underlying struggles or hurts that make them want to keep busy or minister to others to the detriment of themselves. Renewed can help nurture those areas of women’s lives to use them better for work, family, and service. It gives readers permission to examine where they spend their energy and time, and learn to set limits and listen to “that inner voice.”

I'm Lucille. I used to hate my name when I was little, but now I love it. My name means "bringer of light." My hope is that I leave all those I meet with a touch of light and hope.
Sometimes I get caught up in trying to leave a legacy but as Rich Mullins, one of my favorite musicians, said:
"If my life is motivated by an ambition to leave a legacy, what I would probably leave is a legacy of ambition. But, if my life is motivated by the power of God's spirit in me and the awareness of the indwelling Christ, if I allow His presence to guide my motives, that's the only time I think we really leave a great legacy."
Helping hurting people is the desire of my life.
I love people. I once heard a quote: "Ah, at depth everyone is beautiful." Being a wounded healer is a holy privilege that I don't take lightly. I am honored by the risk clients take to put their faith in me. They share the deepest parts of their lives and that is unbelievably cool. I am continually astounded by their courage, hard work, and growth.
Mostly I am a student. My clients teach me every day. I am passionate about learning so I continually read and listen to books on CD in my car, and pod casts when I walk or jog.
I teach psychology and counseling courses at Colorado Christian University as an affiliate faculty member. I'm not a detail person. That's why I don't write computer programs or teach math. I am silly and sensitive. I find two of the strongest ways to bond with my clients are through laughter and tears.
WoW, what an inspirational book. This will make a wonderful Mother's Day gift for that special lady in your life.
This is not your everyday self help book. When I say this is a book that you will read more then once and will share it with everyone of your friends and family I don't say it lightly. This is a 5 star book that will stay on my book shelf.
I highly recommend this book.
