Could I Just Hide Under the Bed, Book Review

Could I Just Hide Under the Bed, by Martha Bolton and Christin Ditchfield

About the Book: Depression, fear, a sense of unworthiness, and unfulfilled dreams can make women retreat to their beds—figuratively and literally—and refuse to face life. Yet most of the time, hiding in bed makes matters worse. Who needs emotional bedsores? Authors Martha Bolton and Christin Ditchfield gently show women how to climb out from under their emotional bedcovers, face their fears and doubts, and step into the lives God has planned for them.

Can I Just Hide in Bed ’til Jesus Comes Back? faces down the fear, depression, and unfulfilled dreams that cripple many women to the point of wanting to crawl in bed—for the rest of their lives. Compiled as a collection of short, mostly humorous and warmhearted stories, it offers readers practical, concrete steps to help them move forward when they are ready. Essays are interspersed with special humor features such as “Top Ten” lists, while “Whenever You’re Ready” sections offer Scriptures, journaling questions, and practical suggestions for “putting your feet on the floor” and “taking a few steps forward.” The book addresses four themes:

  • Facing feelings of fear, anxiety, discouragement, and depression
  • Facing people and relationship issues
  • Facing the pain of grief and loss
  • Facing life—and getting yours back

My Thoughts: Originally I thought this was a book for kids so I was surprised to see it was sent to me in exchange for a review. It isn’t at all and actually deals with a lot of issues that women face. I love the light hearted feel and would so recommend this for anyone who needs a pick me up. The humor is great and its inspirational and an easy read.
