Publisher's Summary

Do you ever just want someone to help you figure life out - to tell you how to win at work, what guys to stay away from, and what jeans rock your body shape? This audiobook is the perfect cocktail of sass and down-to-earth guidance to navigate your way to the life you want to live. With so much information at your fingertips, real success, good dates, and true friendships can still feel out of reach. Packed with lessons learned from her own mistakes and heartache, Bianca Juarez Olthoff is your guide (minus the cargo shorts and tacky hat) in avoiding unnecessary detours on the path to your best self. With her signature wit, engaging stories, and brilliant insights from a counselor friend, Bianca gives spot-on advice for adulting, career, relationships, and faith. Following the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, Bianca's humorous and honest anecdotes will empower you to create a successful life and discover all you can be.

This curated manual for the modern woman will help you:

  • Connect with a mentor, let go of bad friendships, and find a relationship worth keeping
  • Trust the goodness of God even in loss, betrayal, and unanswered questions
  • Take initiative, do hard things, and achieve meaningful success
  • Fall in love with God's Word and see the Bible come alive

Bianca will show you that though life is tough, you are, too.

not for me

Book is better suited for a very young person - not a married, middle aged woman

Our history does not determine our destiny!

“Our history does not determine our destiny!”

“Redemption will create a legacy and our legacy will change the future!”

So many nuggets of profound wisdom and incredible storytelling along with applicable words to continue our journeys forward! THANK YOU for sharing your heart and wisdom with the world, Bianca! The world is a better place with you in it — the wisdom, spunk & sassyness, plus thirst for God’s word, are all attributes which make us all love you!

Bianca is Like the Bestie I Never Knew I Had

I first saw Bianca at Passion City the Grove. I did a double take as I had followed her twin Jasmine for years, and never came across this Jesus Loving Incredible Hilarious Women! I laughed so much as she covered Ruth one of my fave books of the Bible. I have listened to her Warrior Woman online, guest appearances with Transformation Church, her own church and IG posts, and her podcast!
-
When I learned about this book, I headed over to Audible to get it especially when I saw she reads. I love her vulnerability, varying voices, and stories that illustrate her heart and make things come to life. I loved learning about her own testimonies, her mom and dads, and how she breaks down the book of Ruth! I have been sharing about it recently myself so I loved how the Holy Spirit aligned this!
-
If you love reliability, vulnerability, humor, respect, love and honor towards God and others, you will love Bianca!

For single, young ladies...

This book is geared for the single, young lady, and is not written very well. Normally I love the author, but I think she is a better speaker than author. Disappointed.

Surprisly lovely!!

I love Bianca's personality! Christians, don't let the word SUCK in the title keep you from this scripture filled gem. I was a little surprised at how much was dedicated to being single, but glad I stuck it out because it's filled with so much encouragement.

Horrifying impersonations of a Jewish woman

I cringed everytime she did the awful voice for Naomi. It was grotesque and offensive and unnecessary. I would never recommend the audio book to anyone. That sadly overshadowed the book for me. Some sections were very good though. Those who have had a rough life will not appreciate her perspective.

Good Christian perspective on adulting!

I read this book as I wanted to share it with a mentee. I have to say the beginning felt a little bit slow for me, it is worth noting that I’m in my 50s so that’s probably why. Halfway through the book, though, it became really interesting and it has lessons not just for younger generations but it reaffirms for people who have been adulting for a while the importance of legacy and trust in God.

Stop the Jewish impersonation

Good book. Just wish the author (a Latina from California) didn’t feel the need to do Jewish accents she believes is Ruth’s voice. It’s a little insensitive, culturally.
