Book Review- The Overwhelmed Woman


There is a reason they say that a woman's work is never done---because it isn't! As women, we often are overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration, and even depression. The truth is that we were created to be overwhelmed . . . not by life but by God! When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten to fragrant---filling our days with peace, hope, love, and joy.

In A Woman Overwhelmed, best-selling author Hayley DiMarco shares biblical insights and personal stories to offer a glimpse at the comedy of an overwhelmed life while encouraging us to discover the depths and heights of God's love and power.

Be empowered to find freedom in becoming overwhelmed with who God is---by learning to focus on what we know about God so that we can hold onto faith even when it seems that all is lost. For it is when an overwhelmed woman gives up the mission of me and exchanges it for the mission of God that being overwhelmed becomes a good thing.

Choose to bask in the abundance of the Father instead of the abundance of life as his unfathomable depths can surely replace our fathomable messes.


Hayley DiMarco, author of the A Woman Overwhelmed Bible study and trade book, is the best-selling author of more than forty books, including multiple books in the God Girl line, The Fruitful Wife, Obsessed, Die Young, and Own It. As the founder of Hungry Planet, a company intensely focused on feeding the world's appetite for truth, Hayley speaks regularly for women's groups and events, including groups such as Women of Faith, dotMOM, Precept National Women's Convention, and MOPS International. She and her pastor husband, Michael, live outside Nashville with their daughter and four dogs. 


I could relate to so much in this book! There’s always something going on in my life and so much to do that it can feel overwhelming.

Hayley writes with humor about the messes of life that we all experience as women. The little things and big things that can be so overwhelming. I really like how real and open she is about things that she has experienced.

There are several sections in the book and my favorite is “The Mission of Me”. This section focuses on how we need to put others before ourself, just as God instructs, even though it’s our nature to put ourself above others. Contrary to what we think, it can be more overwhelming to be self centered. 

At the end of each chapter, there’s a section called, “Things to Ponder”. This is where she asks us questions for us to ponder and answer. This is where she shares what God has to say about what we’ve read and how to apply it to our life.

I really enjoyed this book and recommend it. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
