  • Synopsis: 
  • A single "no" from someone close to us can crush our dreams. You can't . . . You'll never . . . You're kidding yourself . . . In contrast, a single "yes" can sustain our dreams despite the setbacks we're sure to encounter. Yes, you can! Yes, I'm here for you!

Her engaging personal stories, as well as those from other prominent women, will show you how to

  • - find and cultivate Yes Sister relationships

  • - and be a Yes Sister for someone else

  • She also helps you understand, forgive, and sometimes distance yourself from negative people who dampen your joy and strip you of your motivation.

  • You don't have to go it alone, and you don't have to drag the naysayers along behind you. Start finding your Yes Sisters today!

13887697Review: While I enjoyed reading this book, its subject is one with which I always feel something of a disconnect. I have never had really close female friends, so the whole idea of a group of Yes Sisters is totally foreign to me. I did enjoy reading the story of Angelia turning her dream into reality and also getting to read about certain events from the perspective of the "Yes Sister" who was involved in it with her. I can see this book being used in a women's ministry to encourage us to support one another in every area of life.
