Listen up, ladies! Shirley Strawberry, co-host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, delivers more of the no-nonsense woman-to-woman straight talk her listeners have come to love. Shirley tells it like it is—from the heart. Whether the topic is cheating boyfriends, crazy mothers-in-law, job troubles, or money problems, Shirley’s girlfriend-next-door honesty has made the Strawberry Letters segment of the show a huge hit. Now, in this uplifting motivational guide, she brings her vivacious, inspirational, and down-to-earth message to women everywhere: Get up, get out, and be the best you can be!

As a single parent and a woman willing to let Mr. Right find her, Shirley’s been there and done that—and she’s got hard-won lessons to share. In this call to action to help women look at their lives with a candid eye, she tackles the issues her fans want to hear about:
• Love and Relationships: the highs and lows of dating, marriage, and breakups
• Family: the challenges of being a great mom
• Sisterhood: ways to get (and give) the support you need to stay sane
• Self: tips for overcoming low self-esteem and depression, and finding balance, faith, and acceptance

Full of motivating “Strawberry Tips,” personal stories that provide welcome advice on the run, and helpful suggestions for drama-stuck girlfriends, this book offers a simple message of strength: a challenge to love yourself and your life!

Customer Reviews

Loved This Book!

This is a wonderful book full of real, honest, heart-to-heart talk. She freely admits to the mistakes she made which helps readers to trust and relate to her. It's a quick read, quality on every page.

Extremely disappointed

I am a 44 year old woman and expected to read a book that contained some complex sentence structure. I've alway been a fan of Ms. Strawberry but I'm disappointed in the book. I appreciate her opening up private areas of her life but it just feels like she jumped on the book ban wagon without really tapping into the truths of her story. I felt like the reiteration of the letters was ridiculous since most of the letters are common knowledge if you're a listener. I expected more Ms. Shirley. I will patiently await the book that you write from your heart.

Subject: 2 Good Use!
