It is a mistake to think that your chief duty in training your children is to love them and simply show them what they ought to do. Your chief duty is to love them and make them do what they ought to do.

Our children are influenced to minimize pain by pursuing pleasure. Earthly pleasure has become their ideal. "If it feels good, do it."
No wonder our children are using drugs and sex to escape from their pain--we have trained them for it. We are becoming more self-indulgent and hungry for immediat
"God made you a woman. He delights in your womanhood. Bask in the certainty that your femininity is beautiful to God. That which makes you different from the men in this world is a God-given gift, precious in His sight. Women have already proven that they can go wherever men go: space, politics, war, the boardroom. Use your femininity to go where men cannot go. Where is it that God is calling you to be fearlessly feminine?" (p.203) This question is one that Jani forces you to answer throughout h ...more

What do you think about Boldly Living God’s Plan for Womanhood? I think that sounds great! And, that is what Fearlessly Feminine is all about! So, the required reading for my recent SWI class worked out perfect for me, I love learning more about womanhood!

Jani Ortlund is a mother and pastor’s wife. She challenges the readers of this book to embrace their role as a woman. To take it to heart. To live as women for the sake of God’s glory. In her words (pg.9):

This book was okay. Some of it was really useful, about facing my own fears and using God to do it. A lot of it came from a perspective that is tough to swallow for me. I found it to be a challenge. I AM a stay-at-home mom and wife who loves to serve my family, but I felt challenged by her writing and conservative views. It's not that my life differs from what she supports, or that I view God differently than she, but it challenged my feminist tendencies. I did like the study questions at the en ...more
I really enjoyed this book. It made sense during a time I was deciding which way I wanted to view womanhood and its implications. It was peaceful, practical, and encouraging as a young woman seeking to follow the Lord. I read this when I was single, so there were a few chapters geared toward married women with children that I skimmed through.
Really good book about being a godly woman nowadays from all perspectives.

“I thought that teaching twenty-eight energetic and needy children how to read had to be the hardest job on earth. I was wrong - mothering was. Now I had to give up my right to sleep when I needed it, to a meal without interruptions, to relaxation when I wanted it, and most importantly, my right to withdraw when I felt overwhelmed.” 2 likes
“Anything of worth is costly: devotion to Christ, a strong marriage, financial responsibility, a life of integrity, and of course, fearlessly feminine mothering.” 1 likes
