The book itself was AMAZING!! There were a few times I wanted to stop listening just because the book was touching on some sensitive subjects, but I absolutely love the book. The narrator did a fabulous job! I'm incredibly impressed with how well pronounced every word was and how her voice didn't get quiet as she spoke. It wasn't monotone, dull, or tiring which is a rarity. She put emphasis where it was needed and used a stern tone when necessary as well. The book was wonderful and the narrator did a wonderful job! It felt the writers themselves were reading it.

I highly recommend this audio book to women of all ages and stages. It was 'amazing' to glean from 8 fascinating women as they share vulnerable tested actual relationship life struggles and outcomes. I've enjoyed the new music and humble sermons coming from Bethel but never had the chance before to sit/ walk/ live and learn beside these different aged women of faith with time tested wisdom.
This great seasoned collection (16 chapters) came with ready applications to my real longings for tighter relationships with family and friends as I work out my journey following my chief Love -our Messiah Jesus. There is even a chapter with incredible thoughtful prayers to apply specifically to us and loved ones for His beautiful life-changing empowering liberty.
Anthea does an engaging heart felt job with her voice bringing me right into the intensity of each story. After I started relishing re listening to this book, I discovered she also sounds great with inflections and expressions at the 1.25 sped up option too. I'm even learning more the second time through and love having her declare/read such HOPE to me whenever I have a few moments to listen. Thank you amazing ladies and our amazing God!

I enjoyed listening to this book. It was an awesome book I have always felt like there is more for me to be doing and this book left me feeling empowered. The Narrator Anthea really brought the book to life and kept that much more interested as I listened.
Good stories from women who walked the journey of life that I am also walking. Encouraging. Enjoyed the narration - thought it was a well suited voice for the content of the book.
If you could sum up What If... in three words, what would they be?
Food for thought!
What other book might you compare What If... to and why?
I don't have one to compare this with.
What does Anthea Hallett-Ybarra bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Anthea brings life into the book with her ability to use various voice alterations. She also has a soothing voice when speaking about God and it brings peace to your heart.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
It would be very hard to make a film of this book as it deals with topics related to life's many challenges. It's more of an instructional book. I suppose you could write, "What every women should know when living a Christian life."
Any additional comments?
I enjoyed listening to this book. It's a great reminder of how much we as women doubt ourselves and allow others to interpret who we are. The authors had wonderful examples of the many challenges we encounter in our lives offering healthy suggestion for coping with troubled times. They also included biblical passages to accompany many of the lessons. Everyone can use inspiration in their lives especially in the times we live in. I enjoyed the narration by Anthea Hallett-Ybarra so much, I listened to it in two days while puzzling and doing house work. Although this book isn't for everyone, if you find yourself moving down a dark path in life and or are looking for clarification of your existence, this book is for you.
