I was recently given the opportunity to read Kathi Lipp’s latest book, The Me Project. You might remember my reviews of two of her other books The Husband Project and The Marriage Project, both of which were excellent. In The Me Project, Kathi excels again but shifts focus away from relationships and onto YOU. Walking you through the process of dreaming, having a vision for your life, and setting achievable goals during even the most hectic seasons of life, she gives great guidance on how to realize your lifelong dreams and be the person God has created you to be. Below is the book information, Kathi’s bio, a link to a great article from Kathi on this subject, AND information about a GIVEAWAY that you can enter simply by commenting on this blog post…
“San Jose, CA) Has that rush to make (and break) New Year’s resolutions already waned? According to Daniel Pink, author of Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us, taking small steps every day will not only help you stay committed to your goal, but will also help you ultimately achieve that goal when obstacles come up. Author Kathi Lipp wants you and your friends to live out those dreams—and have some fun along the way.
As women, we forget the goals and dreams of our younger years. The busyness of everyday life gets in the way. To-do lists replace goals. The Me Project provides women with fun and creative ways to bring back the sense of purpose and vitality that comes with living out the plans and dreams God has planted in our hearts. Kathi Lipp’s warm tone and laugh-out-loud humor motivates women to take daily steps toward intentional goals. The end result? We get back our lives and enjoy living in the confidence of a purposeful life in spite of our chaotic schedules.
This handy guide coaches women to do one simple thing toward achieving our goals each day for three weeks. A woman experiencing the exhilaration of a rediscovered life offers more as a wife, mother, friend, volunteer, career woman.”
Finding the balance between living day-to-day with purpose while pursuing the passions God has placed in our hearts is a delicate pursuit. In this refreshing, insightful book, Kathi lays out a doable plan that makes sense and helps make our God-given dreams a reality. Never stop dreaming, because women who dare to dream do make the world a better place.

I am working on reading the bible in a year. 🙂
One goal I have is to get maintain my health and become more physically fit.
Maybe it's just me, but I've never really understood pining after the goals and aspirations of a younger me. 10 years ago I was young, immature, and without a care in the world. I had a lofty goal of wanting to be a Supreme Court justice one day. Getting married and becoming a mom has given me perspective and a different passion…one I would never trade for my early dreams. Personally, I'm grateful God has replaced those dreams with new and better ones. I don't get it when women say they never want being a wife and mom to define them…I LOVE that it defines every part of me!
All that said, one goal I have is to instill in my children a passion for loving their Lord. I've already noticed a huge improvement when I actually take the time to talk to them about God throughout the day. I read “Shepherding a Child's Heart” recently and it was incredibly convicting.

Hi Jenn – Thanks again for featuring one of my books! I love that you “GET” the concepts in each one – loving your husband better, making your marriage a priority, and honoring the dreams that God has given you!
I have so many “goals” but one is really living a life of wellness and fitness! 🙂
I want to demonstrate joy and grace during times of stress. It's a long-term goal that will always exist, I'd imagine, but hopefully/prayerfully, the little successes and growth will be noticeable. With Scott's upcoming deployment, our move, and the birth of kiddo #5, I'm especially hoping to model grace and compassion toward my kids (I struggle so much more with them, it seems)…I'll definitely have lots of opportunities to practice! Heaven knows how much I rely on His grace; isn't it hypocritical (and very “ungrateful-servant-like”) to NOT reciprocate when it's in my power? I think yes. 🙂
