Book Review: Just Ask (A Devotional for Coaches’ Wives)

just ask book review Just Ask by Sarah Roberts is a 21-Day Devotional written by coaches’ wives. Each chapter focuses on a person in the Bible. The wives take turn sharing how a Bible story or person reminds them of a scenario they have experienced.

There is no stone left unturned as each wife writes about their lives. Firings, fear, marriage stress, trust, disappointment and public pressures are all covered. Each entry ends with three reflection questions for personal or group discussion, but more than that, each post reminds us how God was present in each situation in Scripture and in the lives of each wife.

I found this book to be a great tool for small group discussion. There was plenty of time to discuss our personal experiences without feeling rushed. The entries were the length of a blog post and the book is small enough to keep in your purse for reading on the go.

If you are looking for encouragement and perspective from other coaches’ wives consider getting a copy of Just Ask. This would also make a great gift for a newly engaged soon-to-be coach’s wife. For more book reviews check out my monthly newsletter!
