Synopsis via



Are you living with the stress of an overwhelmed schedule and aching with the sadness of an underwhelmed soul?

Lysa Terkeurst is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In 

The Best Yes 

she will help you:

Cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love.

Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no. 

Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom based decision-making process. 

Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your best yes today.


Anyone who makes decisions should read this book. Oh does that include everyone? If your not raising your hand your lying. Lysa Terkeurst does an amazing job at guiding readers through decision making to reach their Best Yes. Anyone who is known as a people pleaser or who says yes as an immediate reaction is in need of the wisdom within this book. She keeps it light and airy as she breezes through decisions made in the everyday and the major life changing ones. She knows how to make ya laugh, let me tell you. I, as someone known for my unfortunate luck, found many of her stories easy to relate to and to learn from. 

This book does have a point of view of a mother but I found that many of her points were easy to relate to the life of a college student.  Just in case you were wondering this is more of a Book Club book then a Bible Study book. It does include some Scripture but most isn’t based on the Word. She also takes some of her key phrases and puts it in a pretty font making it stand out. I enjoy a well designed book. 

If you are a people pleaser then read this book. 

If you enjoy hilariously relatable stories filled with lessons you should read this book. 

If you are seeking more wisdom in your decision making you should read this book. 

I would rate this 4/5
