The twenty-eight declarations in the book explore having faith to accomplish set goals, cultivating patience and endurance, trusting in God to help in the achieving of the dreams, having courage and finishing strong. Dent also includes the importance of maintaining an attitude of gratitude when you achieve your dreams in the end. She shares her own experiences and offers declarations based on scriptures that can be recited in order to build faith and courage. Overall, the book discusses every step of the journey with regard to the attainment of dreams and offers wise counsel supported by relevant scriptures.
The steps in Finish are well organized and they capture every setback possible when achieving a dream. The tone is conversational and friendly. I felt like the author was there cheering me on at every section while offering words of encouragement through phrases such as “You are almost there!” and “Fear not, you can!” The book is brief and an easy read as discussions are specific and kept to the point. The declarations are also personalized such that as I read I could easily apply them to fit my own situations. I also loved that Angie Dent shares a bit of her life in relation to the accomplishment of dreams. This makes her words much more practical. Finish is an amazing book that left me inspired and encouraged.
