She Did What She Could

She Did What She Could (SDWSC): Five Letters That Will Change Your Life She Did What She Could (SDWSC): Five Letters That Will Change Your Life by Elisa Morgan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just finished reading this book and I want to begin my review with a question...okay...a series of questions.

Have you ever watched a program on TV about a situation or group of people in some sort of need and just felt your heart breaking for them? Have you sat through a special speaker at your church or an event who reaches out to people who are sick or living in poverty beyond our comprehension? Have you walked away with a passion to help only to have it fizzle out when you realized how overwhelming the task of helping truly is?

In this book, Elisa Morgan will grab your heart stings and show you how you CAN CAN do something to change the world. It all begins with a simple story of a lady in the Bible who did what she could.

She Did What She Could is all about doing the simple things to help others out of the love you have for Christ. My favorite quote in this book is found on page 64: "Let even your deficits be your offering."

So many of us can come up with a long list of why we can't do anything or why we are not good at some many things. But the point of this book is not about becoming a better person, learning new skills...but rather using the ones we do have...or even as stated above, the ones we don't have to do what we can do. Love others. Serve Christ.

You will put this book down with a renewed sense of hope for what you can do to reach out in simple, little ways. If you have ever wished that you could change the world then this is what you need to read today!

Thanks to Tyndale for this reveiw copy!


  1. Mandy i always love reading your blogs and watching what you are reading. Seems to me you give fair reviews and your comments always interest me in certian books. Amy Jones

  2. I love the writings of Elisa Morgan. Several of her books have helped through the years. I am happy to hear that she does not disappoint in this book and I am excited to read it after seeing your review. It seems to discuss a topic that Christ followers should be concerned with, and is often pushed aside in the rush of our daily lives. I, for one, know I need to focus more on the topic Elisa addresses in her new book and can't wait to get a hold of a copy! K. Schmidt

  6. I'm always looking for a good book to read & this is one that is going on my list. I can hardly wait to get started. Lori Meyer

  7. Listening to Elisa Morgan speak on this book at convention 2 years ago was AMAZING. The anticipation of what SDWSC meant, made it an "AH HA" moment when Elise spoke to the women. Since then we have used this phrase many of times in our MOPS group. I have yet to read the book but if it's anything like her talk then I know it will be incredible.
