What Women Want Blog Tour

Thanks to LitFuse Publicity for providing a free review copy of this book. No other compensation was received for this review. The opinions contained herein are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

Welcome to my portion of the What Women Want blog tour. I am happy to be able to tell you my thoughts regarding this book.

This book is unique in that the authors conducted a national survey and interviewed hundreds of women in preparation for its writing. The first section of What Women Want addresses 12 areas - including your relationship with God, love in your life, friendships, and finances - where women expressed deep needs or desires in the survey answers and the interviews, and the second section includes a Bible study which shows how God is the answer for each of those 12 areas and includes questions designed to help you assess your standing in each area, discover what God's Word has to say about that area, and apply your findings to your life. Plenty of room is included for you to write your discoveries in the book itself, and the study is appropriate for individual or group use.

Another element I like is the author interviews found at the end of each chapter in the first section. The authors interviewed have some expertise or personal experience regarding the topic discussed in that chapter, and these interviews help to give a more personal touch to that topic.

Important: this book uses many different versions of the Bible. Since I believe that the King James Version is the Bible for the English-speaking people, I cannot recommend this book in that regard.

About the Authors: LISA T. BERGREN is the author of twenty-eight books. She writes a lot from the heart and in many categories – from gift and children’s books to medieval fiction and Bible studies. She is a wife to Tim, an artist, and mother to three phenomenal children–Olivia, Emma and Jack. For more specifics on Lisa, see her Web site at

REBECCA PRICE credits her long career ("Twenty-five years–yikes!") in the Christian publishing industry as providing opportunities to meet and learn from many gifted teachers and authors. She has worked in marketing and executive positions at NavPress, Word, Multnomah and WaterBrook Press. After moving around the country (and to London and back), she returned to her home state, embarked on a business venture with Lisa, and is now a publishing and marketing consultant.
