8 Habits for Growth Review

Book Review: 

8 Habits for Growth by Darryl Dash helps readers learn habits to grow closer to Jesus. Dash focuses on small habits that are manageable, but that make a big impact on your life. He provides lots of suggestions and variations for readers, as everyone will find that different things work for them. He says that when practiced imperfectly, these habits will help you and others grow. Dash also check in throughout the book to help the reader grow in their habits and, when moving on to the next habit, making sure they are not giving up the previously learned habit. Questions throughout help the reader understand what is working and what isn't. Most importantly, the author stresses that there is no need to be perfect. You just need to start where you are.

Dash recommends reading this book with a friend or a group, so you can benefit from discussion and accountability. He also recommends slowly reading this book over a period of time (suggested reading plans are listed in the book) so you have time to slowly make the changes in your life.

Since I read this for review, I read through this really quickly. However, I think it would be really helpful if read slowly with a quality effort put into making the changes.

Overall, I gave this 3/5 stars.
