About "The Best Yes: Making Wise Decisions in the Midst of Endless Demands"

Do you sometimes find it a struggle to know when to say yes and when to say no? With Scripture-based insight, transparency, and "been there" humour, Lysa TerKeurst helps readers to become truly wise and effective decision makers by finding "the best yes" that shapes all other choices, and aims at the glory of God!
- Koorong

Learn to find and play the role God wants most for you to play, not the ones you feel pressured into playing for the sake of others or even our sense of accomplishment and worth.

Most of us spend a lot of our lives figuring out when to say yes and when to say no. How to manage our time, reduce stress, do our best for our families, find a little space for "me." But we don't find space for our souls until we learn to step past the yes and no of daily decisions and seek a third option: the best yes. 

The best yes is the choice that shapes all our other choices. (And our choices determine the direction of our lives.) It's what allows us to play our necessary parts in God's plan, to spend our energy and focus our passion on the assignments that really are ours. It allows us to be there for the moments we shouldn't miss, pursue the calling our souls pulse to fulfill, give the love we were born to offer. 

How do we learn to say that best yes? It requires honesty. Imagination. Attention. Trust. Humility. Practice-lots of practice. And wisdom. The best yes is really all about wisdom-learning to make truly wise decisons. And that's the heart of this book.

"I want us to become powerfully effective decision makers," writes Lysa Terkeurst. "Because then we will live powerfully effective lives. And spend our souls doing powerfully effective work to the glory of God."

With her signature mix of transparency, Scripture-laced insight, and "been there" humor, she suggests usable strategies for choosing wisely and encourages us all to shout and whisper our own best yes to life, day by decision-making day.

YES to this book!
5 stars By Emma, Jul 21 2016
Im honestly always torn when it comes to decisions! I'll be the first to admit I hate saying no! Lysa completely changed my view of yes and no decisions in this book and how freeing a feeling I have now saying yes and more importantly saying no - knowing im making choices in order to commit fully to my "best yes" assignments and live out my God given purpose!! Everyone NEEDS to read this book! Also there are so many great quotes to be taken from this book :)

Inspiring
4 stars By Kath, Dec 15 2015
I found "The Best Yes" relevant, easy to read and sprinkled with humor. I laughed, and I cried, then laughed again as I read this book and reflected on how Lysa's words (and God's Word) was applicable to my life. A powerful, yet simple book helping us to define our boundaries by determining if a decision meets 'The Best Yes' criteria. While men could read  benefit from this book, I feel it would appeal more to women than men.

The Best Yes is full of practical advice and biblical truths that will entirely change your decision making process!!! I love this book and would recommend it to all women caught up in the busyness of endless demands and requests that seem impossible to say no to.

Great bible study
4 stars By Paula, Nov 23 2015
I loved this study.  I enjoyed the DVD series and found the study, paperback, DVD a great combo.   Thought provoking and helped to be more aware of why I do or don't do different ministry opportunities.
