Same Life, New Story is a bible study designed for women to help them understand that making one small change can have a deep impact on their lives. The author, Jan Silvious, is a professional life coach and she has a very unique writing style. I loved that she was able to combine biblical truths with modern applications to use in our lives. In each of the 10 chapters, we are introduced to another female character from the Bible. Jan uses their stories to teach us, and also to help us think on a deeper level about the things in our lives that need to be dealt with such as fear, our pasts, insecurity, obstacles, etc. At the end of each chapter, there are personal questions, journal topics, and group discussion questions. Throughout the book we are shown and reminded that we can change our lives and that it really isn’t as hard as we make it out to be. I loved that this book can be used with a group, but is also perfect for a woman who wants to do her own individual study. It would make a perfect gift for someone who doesn’t have a home church or has recently moved, travels, etc.
