Relationships are a huge part of life, and something in which I want to be very good. I desire to have healthy relationships in all of the roles that I assume- as a wife, a steppie, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend, a coworker, etc. I was excited to review Van Moody’s book “The People Factor” because I’m finding myself in a new phase of life where I actually have to seek relationships, build them, and maintain them. Since we have moved to Jacksonville, we’ve been trying to figure out ways to not only meet people, but to develop authentic, healthy relationships with them. And since that was a goal, I hoped this book could offer some good insight.
Let me just say- this book is awesome! I found myself wanting to read it faster to get through (because it’s so much GOOD, RELEVANT TEACHING), but also wanting to slow down and take many, many notes. This is also the first book that I’ve read for review that I’ve had the opportunity to recommend to someone in person (at the hair salon, someone had recently heard about the book and wanted to know if it was good).
Here’s the thing- we can ALL be better at relationships. Moody’s book provides us with not just an understanding of how and why relationships matter, but tangible tips on how to identify which relationships to stay in (or enter in). Not only that, at the end of each chapter, he provides excellent relationship reminders and great questions to help you raise your relational IQ.
This book provided a great foundation to help in my approach to relationships in this new phase of life. This is definitely a book that I will be using as a resource, and that I will recommend to others. Check it out!
