Book Details

Lysa TerKeurst is learning that there is a big difference between saying yes to everyone and saying yes to God. In The Best Yes she will help you:

  • Cure the disease to please with a biblical understanding of the command to love.
  • Escape the guilt of disappointing others by learning the secret of the small no.
  • Overcome the agony of hard choices by embracing a wisdom based decision-making process.
  • Rise above the rush of endless demands and discover your Best Yes today.

How the Blog Tour Will Benefit You

During the blog tour, we will post on both Lysa’s and Proverbs 31 Ministries’ Facebook pages (combined reach of 1.8 million followers) with a link directing traffic back to the blog tour page. This will give our audience an opportunity to find your blog space as a participant in the tour! Additionally, we will post individual quotes from chosen blogs on the Facebook pages and link directly back to that blog. In this way, we can bless you with increased traffic to your site.

Additional Quotes

Feel free to use these additional quotes from The Best Yes in your blog post or social media promotions.

  • We must not confuse the command to love with the disease to please.
  • The decisions you make determine the schedule you keep. The schedule you keep determines the life you live. And how you live your life determines how you spend your soul.
  • We have to put our hearts and our minds in places where wisdom gathers, not scatters.
  • If you desire to please God with the decision you make and afterward it proves to be a mistake, it’s an error not an end.
  • My imperfections will never override God’s promises. God’s promises are not dependent on my ability to always choose well, but rather on His ability to use well.
  • Not making a decision is actually a decision. It’s the decision to stay the same.
  • Saying no isn’t an unnecessary rejection. It’s a necessary protection of our Best Yes answers.
  • It’s not the activities or accomplishments we string together that make lives well lived as much as it is the hearts of wisdom we gain and use along the way.
