Total obedience to Christ can transform an ordinary life into a remarkable journey. This is the hope found in the liberating message of Lysa TerKeurst--president of Proverbs 31 Ministries.
In What Happens When Women Say Yes to God, Lysa shares inspiring stories from her own life along with compelling biblical insights as she describes what it means to partner with God in all decisions and actions. Readers will learn to:
- discern the voice of God and truly say yes to His call
- see what wholehearted obedience looks like on a daily basis
- give themselves to God and let Him affect lives around them
This book reveals how honoring God produces a life of deep joy and great purpose. It is an invitation to seek God and boldly ask for and expect more from the Christian life.

This is an excellent book - I am listening to it again now. Lysa is so down to earth and identifiable. You will be encouraged greatly by this book.
- Wonderful Book
What Happens When Women Say Yes to God is a great book that all women need to read. This book really helped me understand the relationship God has with me when I say Yes to Him.
- Encouragement to Grow
Lysa's openness to her life stories helps the reader to relate and press on. It doesn't matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, right now is a time to say, "yes" to His leading. This is an excellent book!

- Good Book read by a boring voice
I really enjoyed the message of this book but my biggest problem was the voice of the person reading the book. They did not give the credit this book deserves. Voice was too relaxed and not convincing at all thus degrading the impact of the whole message.
I found this book encouraging as it confirms many of the things that God has been teaching me the last few years about walking with Him in obedience and learning to trust Him.
Something valuable in this book is the chapter about discerning what God is saying, and a checklist for making sure that it really is God (for example, it must agree with God's character and His Word).
Lysa shares many stories from her own experience and I appreciated her honesty and humility.
I also thought that the narrator did a good job reading this book.
- God Events
What Happens When Women Say Yes to God by Lysa TerKeurst is an inspiring book about what God can do through women (and men) who are willing and open to the leading of God. There are many stories about times when she listened to God and great things happened and also some times when she didn't and opportunities were missed.
Some time is spent discussing how to discern where the idea comes from God and the radical obedience that is often required to go out of your comfort zone to influence someone life.
As a man this book was mostly applicable and very good but I did seem a bit long winded at times and could have been compressed to a shorter form with greater impact.
Unlike other people I found the narration to be quite good, not exceptional but certainly not grating. She was easy to listen to and seemed to make the stories come to life.
This would be a great book for any women (or men) looking to hear God's voice and act on it in their everyday life.

- Are you radically obedient?
I have finished listening to What Happens When Women Say Yes to God by Lysa TerKeurst.
I am familiar with the author because of Proverbs 31 Ministries and also I have read some of her other books. I enjoyed the message of this book and appreciated the examples shared from her own life of how God has blessed her for her obedience to Him. I liked that she included examples of times when she did and other times when she did not obey. She has a good message in this book to encourage women to radical obedience to God.
I did not give this more stars because of the narrator I guess. Several times I wondered if her tone and inflection was giving the message that the author intended. It just felt like she was bragging or had an attitude or something in some parts regarding what she had done, the choices she had made, or the blessings she received. I don't know if I would have felt that way if it had been read by the author or I had read the book version myself; however, at times I felt this voice distracted from the author's true intent and message.
Thank you to christianaudio Reviewers Program for providing this audio book for my review.

In What Happens When Women Say Yes to God Lysa TerKeurst talks about women listening to the nudging God puts on their hearts and being willing to submit to His calling. She shares a lot of stories and examples from her own life in ways she has followed God's calling as well as shares struggles people face with discerning the voice of God.
I wasn't sure how I was going to like this audiobook since it was written for women, but I decided to try it anyway. It wasn't bad, but wasn't great either. I think Lysa did a nice job encouraging people to follow God and not to make excuses when you know He is calling you to do something. On the other hand, I was board through the majority of this book and had trouble paying attention to a lot of it.
There were times I agreed and disagreed with Lysa and times I thought she did a good job explaining things and other times I did not.
I really like books read by the author because I think it adds something to the story with the way they tell it and this was not read by Lysa, which didn't help make it any better. The narrator wasn't bad, but I didn't care for her either.

- Narrator voice was distracting to me
This is a review of the audiobook version of What Happens When Women Say Yes to God.
In some ways I feel that it is unfair of me to write a review of this book at all, because I found the voice of the person reading this book to be quite grating on my ears and rather annoying. Because the author did not read her own book, I am not sure if the tone that the book was read in accurately portrays the tone the author was trying to get across, but in my opinion this book was read in a very whiney tone, which distracted me from being able to enjoy the book very much.
That said, what you'll find in this book is primarily the author's retelling of times when she heard that still small voice directing her to do something that didn't immediately make sense. When she acted on faith and followed these directions, she saw blessings, not only to herself but also and especially to others. She felt that God was telling her to do certain things, and when she followed through she saw a lot of positive come out from those decisions.
What I got out of this book is that the author is using stories from her life and experiences to encourage women to step out on faith and act in obedience when they hear God telling them to do something. However, because of the whininess of the voice I was listening to, I did not find this book particularly encouraging, and I found it very difficult to pay attention to what was being said. I would imagine that I might have enjoyed this book more if I had read it myself, rather than listened to the audiobook version. In some ways I'm not sure I can really give an accurate review of the content of the book, because I don't know what kind of experience I would have gotten out of it if it had been read in a more friendly and less complain-y tone.

Narrator Thoughts – I thought this woman did a wonderful job of bringing this book to life. With a good mix of emotion and clarity she read this book and put her heart into it. I thoroughly enjoyed her.
Book Thoughts – I was so excited when this book came up for review. A few months ago I read Unglued and was so encouraged by it.
This book was also so encouraging. I love how real Lysa is and how much she opens her heart. She’s so real and I’m encouraged by that. This book made me feel like Lysa came alongside me and encouraged me.
With stories, quotes, and verses this book blends together in a beautiful story of surrender to Christ. When we say yes to His leadings, great things happen. All that He has becomes ours and all that we are becomes His. I enjoyed her encouragement to test the thoughts that come to us. Many times I want to run ahead and do whatever I feel, but God does call me to see what His plan is. I’m thankful for people like Lysa to be real with us and encourage us to say Yes to God.
And I love the cover. It’s so pretty.
