Same Life, New Story by Jan Silvious – Book Review

Same Life, New Story Book Cover Same Life, New Story by Jan Silvious is a ten-week Bible study for women aimed to “change your perspective to change your life.” Does it live up to this big promise?

Book Description:

Move from what is to what can be by changing how you think and talk to yourself.

Using powerful character studies of ten women from Scripture, as well as modern-day stories from her work as a professional life coach, Bible teacher Jan Silvious helps women choose new stories instead of dumping, or wallowing in, their old lives.

Naomi, Leah, Rahab, Deborah, Hannah, Anna, Jehosheba, Abigail, Naaman’s servant girl, and Elizabeth round out the cast of characters who, with their own stories, help readers find new perspectives with amazing results. Chapters include:

  •  Realize it’s time
  • Don’t be held hostage by the past
  • Ask yourself good questions
  • Change your “I can’t” to “I can”
  • Delete the drama of the day
  • Forget the “What might have beens”
  • Discover the power of wisdom and courage
  • Get past the resistance of fear
  • Choose to bounce back
  • The last chapter has not been written yet

My Thoughts:

This is my first book review for, where I got a complimentary copy of this book in exchange of my honest opinion, so please bear with me as I share my innocent thoughts with you.

While reading through the book, I find myself reflecting and realizing that my story is not much different than others. The “Personal Reflection” questions at the end of each chapter make me dig deeper into my faith.

Jan Silvious also prompts the reader to keep a journal, which is a good way to keep track and follow through my spiritual journey. I like that Silvious shows you what to add to a personal journal along with this book/Bible study.

I’ve learned more about key biblical women than I knew before, as well as discovered myself in the process. This book is an awesome read to learn about a great life story that God wants to write for your life. If you want to change your perspectives in your life, and eventually change your life to the better, then check out this book, which is a great Bible study.
