My Review:
 If you are a young woman of faith you feel like the whole world is opened up to you. But if God has set you apart for an even more important stand out of the faith it can sometimes feel like a 2 ton boulder on your back. That is why it is imperative for you to be mentored by some really strong women of faith to help you through these times especially the trying ones. They are there to show you the way and to hopefully show you what they have learned whether it be through trial or triumph. 

 This book entitled What Happens When Young Women Say Yes to God is an excellent example of that mentoring by two women that have been there. One; Lysa Terkeurst, a woman that has bridged the gap between glorifying God and showing other women that it truly takes a strong faith to withstand everyday challenges. And two; Hope Terkeurst, a young woman that has begun her journey deep in the throws of mission work to show us all to never fear as long as God has your back you can take on the world if you have to.

 This mother and daughter team have joined together to put into action a devotional for those ladies that need some uplifting and encouraging. Because many times those woman that have been called to do extraordinary things for God are in a very lonely, discouraged place. This devotional is based on the Y.E.S. Factor, Y-Your, E-Extraordinary, S-Story. A somewhat unique way to pattern your life, your ministry, and your calling to be exactly what God wanted you to be.
