The vast majority of the time, I am a fiction reader. I generally prefer to lose myself in a book, explore another world to escape my own. However, I decided to read this one based on a friend's recommendation and I'm so glad I did! The author forces you to do what no one really wants to: look at yourself in the mirror! It is a much-needed slap in the face! Mrs. Markins forces self-reflection upon the reader, without making them feel as if they're being scolded for not living up to God's standar ...more

Women in High Def was that book that I would carry with me and steal a few minutes away from my daily routine to read. It is certainly one that you could read in one sitting but I really enjoyed that one quick bit of encouragement in the middle of my hectic day.

Diane Markins has put together a collection of stories by several women on a variety of topics. Each told from the heart of the author, I found myself relating to these women as I read their stories. Many had to be hard to share but with

Diane Markins talked with hundreds of women and learned the ten areas of common and major concerns. She then wrote for and edited this volume of short accounts in the areas of beauty and health, security, purposeful pursuits, friendships and other points of need. The stories are designed to encourage and challenge women to find assurance and grow into richer lives.

The title states a large concept and during my first reading I wasn’t sure the author met that goal. Then I realized that the beautif

Diane covers Beauty, Health, Humor, Security, Love, the Nest,Restoration, Respect, Friendship, Me Time, Purposeful Pursuits and Intimacy (marriage and God), in this book. Whew! That's a lot of topics to cover! She, and other authors, spin stories based on their experiences, based on the topic at hand. Diane adds an appropriate bible verse and prayers after each tale, relating to the moral/teaching of the story. At the end of each section, she gives you 'self-coaching' questions, to think about y ...more
