The Woman Code {Sophia A. Nelson}

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

The Woman Code {Sophia A. Nelson} | #bookbloggers #bookreview #sponsored #tingsmombooks
Every woman lives by a code, whether she realizes it or not. It informs how she treats others and herself, how much she expects of herself, and how far she is willing to go in order to find success. But is the code we're living by truly helping us create the lives of purpose and fulfillment we desire? Or are we sacrificing the deeper things for mere achievement? 

In this inspiring book, Sophia A. Nelson calls women to live out a powerful life code that will lead them to purposeful and successful lives. With the wisdom that comes from experience, Nelson reveals to women

· the true meaning of "having it all"
· how to take better care of their minds, bodies, and souls
· how to achieve professional excellence without compromising their values
· how to find lasting love and purpose in life beyond their accomplishments
· how to navigate the sisterhood of women, to build collaboration rather than competition
· how to heal from past hurts, rejection, and life's inevitable storms
· and much more

The Woman Code is a way of living, of navigating life's challenges, and of interacting positively with other women. It's a way of pursuing our dreams and our deepest desires. It reveals a universal and timeless set of principles of the mind, body, and spirit that help women balance the demands of work, home, family, and friendship. The Woman Code not only calls on women to practice purpose in their lives, it shows them how to do it with grace.

I have to admit, I had a very hard time getting through this book. I'm not exactly sure what I was expecting from this book, but I can't honestly say I liked anything about it.

I can remember in school when we had to write long papers on a subject, but I could only come up with one very short thought about the whole thing. I would get creative and just rewrite my thought in as many creative ways I could think of. I feel like this is what the author did with this entire book.

The book is broken down into five sections, or codes. The table of contents serves as a basic outline for the entire book, but I feel like the outline could actually stand without the rambling paragraphs to expound on it.

I really hate giving bad reviews, but I just couldn't find anything I loved about this book.
