    1. This slim volume would be a great choice for a women s group at a church By dealing with the topic of regret it probes spiritual themes that we all deal with, such as forgiveness of self and others and acceptance of grace Michelle s writing does not belabor a point, which makes this a gem in an otherwise crowded field I feature an interview with Michelle on my blog on June 20, 2014 rutheverhart blog p 5454

    2. Michelle Van Loon writes, Regret is never, ever, meant to be a destination in our lives For many of us, it s not only a destination, but a way of life As a past the middle of life wife, mom, and author writer, Van Loon understands the power of regret She vulnerably shares some of the choices that she has made throughout her life which have contributed to her own wrestling matches with shame She drills down into this powerful emotion with wisdom, authority, and humor My favorite laugh out loud pa [...]

    3.

    8. 2.5 starsThank you to NetGalley and Nazarene Publishing House for this free copy In an exchange for this copy I am giving an honest review Regret is something every person encounters in their life I am not aware of one person who doesn t have regret in their life The tough thing about regret is letting it go So when I saw the title and premise of this book I was definitely curious about what Van Loon would have to share The problem with having been birthed straight into the church nursery is I p [...]

    9. I liked the book Good stories and examples of regretGood gospel help in dealing with regret My favorite quote Christ indeed makes all things new He is at work to reunite our divided hearts This means that he will reclaim, redeem, and repurpose every single one of our regrets as we submit ourselves to his work in our lives In light of our regrets, we can pray Teach me your way, LORD, that I may rely on your faithfulness give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name Ps 86 11

    10. The writing was mediocre and comes from so eone who is unqualified to give such bold instructions about letting go From what I ve seen about the author there are no credentials for writing, ministering, or psychology other than personal experience I can see where this book could appeal to some After reading books by qualified researchers such as Bren Brown and talented writers who have gone outside their comfort zone to understand emotions like Cheryl Strayed and Elizabeth Gilbert I really can t [...]

    11. The best part of this book were the questions at the end of each chapter to help a person work through areas of regret.
