I have found so often that the Lord brings things into my life when I need them most desperately.

This book is one of those things.

At the end of chapter two, I read the following:

“Live up to the great and magnificent inheritance which the Lord God, your Father in Heaven, has provided for you,” said President Gordon B. Hinckley. “Rise above the dust of the world. Know that you are daughters of God, children with a divine birthright. Walk in the sun with your heads high, knowing that you are loved

This was a book I needed to read right at this time of my life. So many times, things happen that make you feel so powerless. This book helps you realize that you do have the power inside of you to change your life, with the Lord's help.

Faye Klingler also helps you understand how strong you really are, and to just keep trying.

A Woman’s Power
By Fay Klinger
This well-crafted book guides women to a more thoughtful, binding relationship with their Father in Heaven. Scriptural references and stories lead women of all ages toward a more spiritual sense of self. Through prayer and scripture study, a woman can gain knowledge, companionship of the Holy Spirit and confidence in their ability to make wise selection.
A frank discussion concerning cautions in relationships will lead readers to make enlightened choices in friendship

This is a love book that helped me understand more and have a better relationship with God. The scriptures references and the stories just eased you into relaxing and letting your heart open up. It also helps with personal relationships and friendships. The author lets the reader think of what they want and feel good about what happens either way. The relationships you grow and healthy relationships. I will be sharing this book with my mom a lovely read all woman and daughters should read

I’m not a woman and I haven’t played one on TV. However, I have been married over twenty years and have four daughters (and no sons) so perhaps those are the reasons I was meant to read this book.

I was fearful that this book could be one of those that bash men and point out how women had been oppressed throughout history. Thank goodness that wasn’t the case. If I had to choose one word to describe this book, it would be “inspirational”.

From the beautiful cover to the stylish interior design, eve

Fay Klingler’s goal in The Power of a Woman, Threads that Bind us to God, as I see it, is to give hope and threads of strength that will “sustain us until help arrives and/or our situation changes”. She tells about eight threads that form “a simple, proven pattern for success”. When these threads bind together into a rope, it is obviously stronger. Applying this to a woman’s life is what this inspirational non-fiction is all about. If you are a woman looking for such helpful, uplifting messages ...more

I enjoyed many of the quotes and anecdotes but am cautious to recommend this book as it is mostly generalizations followed by amazing stories that display the exception more than the rule for how God works in our lives. This could give some people strength while giving others false expectations. Yes, sometimes miracles happen, but that can't be the thread of hope we expect. I am not sure I felt the Spirit through the words, though the author obviously has some great things to share. Like the boo ...more

I don't believe in accidents. I think things happen for a reason, at a time when you need to learn some specific lesson. I may find out I'm wrong about that someday, but I'm pretty sure I'm right.

Which brings me to a book I was asked to review. A Woman's Power: Threads that bind us to God, by Fay A Klinger.

I tend to mostly read thrillers or suspense novels with a few fantasies or romances thrown in. I'm not normally drawn to inspirational books even though they are food for our souls. I forget h

"A Woman's Power: Thread of Truth and Safety That Binds Us to God" by Fay S. Klingler all I can say was WOW! This was truly a wonderful read. I was a little unsure of its title and not being a Mormon, but I was so glad I did ask to review this read. Fay Klingler is a Mormon that really knows her gospel, her true life of wonderful stories, quotes and knowledge

This a book of empowerment, of exhortation, and of comfort. The chapter titles give us a hint of the principles author Fay A. Klingler addresses: Identity, Prayer, The Word of God, Awareness, Obedience, Goal Setting, Supporting Each Other, and Patience. Using personal examples she has gained throughout her years of growth and service in her church congregation and elsewhere, as well as examples related to her and talks from General Authorities of the LDS Church, Fay helps us understand how a lif ...more

A Woman's Power is a beautiful witness of a woman's divinity as a daughter of God. Within these chapters, you'll find guidance to strengthen your relationship with Heavenly Father and uplifting stories that, combined, make you want to strive to be the person God knows is inside of you. To just shine and be the best you. I loved this endorsement:

“This book encourages all women to thoughtfully ponder the
opportunity to build a powerful and more trusting relationship
with our Father in Heaven, and to

This book is a well written non fiction book that helps women see the potential that they have in life and through the eternities.

Fay Klingler has taken her own experiences and the experiences of other women to help inspire and instruct on living a life that is closer to God. She helps the reader understand what it truly means to be a child of God.

She also helps us to understand and identify unhealthy relationships. She strives to help women understand that they are more valuable than many think
