My Review:  I've been looking for a great book to help me study the Word of God. So was excited to find It's No Secret.  Have you ever thought to yourself "I read the Bible, but I just don't understand it. I never get anything out of it." If you have, God divinely directed you here today because Rachel Olsen, has written a book that is a must have for every woman who longs to find and understand, in real and practical ways, the truths and promises found in the Word of God. 
There are many, many nuggets of information in this wonderful read.  Nuggets that help us to realize that it is no secret what God can do!  As I read this book that old song, 'It Is No Secret What God Can Do!' flooded my mind.  Because God is so good, so mighty and so loving I truly believe that He longs for there to be No Secrets! No secrets also means that we must present ourselves to God in truth and honesty as Rachel writes about in the first chapter of this book, Always RSVP-Revealing the Secret to Responding to God. Respond to God with your whole heart and with no holes barred!
Also, at the end of every chapter is a Bible Study.  There are (sometimes) questions for you to answer, mini thoughts/devotionals, scripture references that go with the chapter and places for you to write in the book.  I think leaving spaces to write in the book is a great idea because then you can reread or go back to your answers as a reference point.
Rachel writings are down to earth sometimes humorous, sometimes serious and always right on target.
The chapter entitled, Adjust Your Scale:  Revealing the Secret of Perfection in God's Eyes, is a chapter that all ladies and teen girls need to read.  In our society where women are praised for being "perfectly thin" or beautiful to look upon God sees our hearts. . . our compassion for others and our love for doing the Lord's work is a challenging but yet realistic goal.  This chapter reminded me of being a Proverbs 31 lady.  A lady that many of us strive to emulate.
Are you wanting to draw closer to God?  Do you long to understand His Word and do His will?  Then you'll want to read this 5 star informative, sweet read!
This book with your morning cuppa is the best way to jump start your day!
