A charge to women to recover what the feminist revolution has robbed them of: the God-given beauty, wonder, and treasure of their distinctive calling and mission.

The feminist revolution was supposed to bring women greater fulfillment and freedom. Yet women today feel anything but fulfilled and free because they have lost the distinctiveness and richness of their calling

I'm a wife and first time mother who recently left the workforce to be a stay-at-home mom. This book couldn't have presented itself at a better time in my life. This book touches on points about being a godly wife, the importance of investing in your children, and how God really sees his daughters. Although a lot of the material presented tends to lend itself to wives and moms, there are still a lot of good nuggets that are applicable to single women as well. For me, there were pros and cons of ...more

I have this on my Kindle, and I started to read it... only to get through the introduction and part of the first essay and realize my heart isn't ready for this. I'm single. I don't have the privilege of exhibiting biblical womanhood through marriage or children. I believe women and men are different, and I believe in biblical womanhood and (I assume) most/all of what is in this book... But right now I can't read another "high calling of wife- and motherhood" thing. I'd love to be a wife and mot ...more

Very compelling. Few books have multiple authors but it works well for this read. I was convicted and encouraged which is the hallmark of anything with Nancy Leigh Demoss' s name on it. I recommend it to all women!

Femininity is something women gain from situation or environment. Femininity is creation from God for a purpose. Women are to develop her femininity and worship God in her feminine character. Hospitality, life-nurturing, gentleness are to be wonderfully displayed for God's glory

Despite my hesitation, I really enjoyed this book!

I appreciated the direct, honest writing style of the authors. I get bored easily with most Christian books when I feel like they drag out a point that can be made in fewer pages. It was refreshing to read chapters by different authors...I didn't get bored!

Do not judge this book by it's title. It should have been named:

So, you are a christian, and you are what?
Becoming a more Godly woman is a great goal. This book talks about some key areas about godly womanhood that have slipped from today's culture such as our roles as helpers for our husbands, examples of godliness for our daughters and our role in our homes. Many additional resources are mentioned in this book for a deeper dive into "Becoming God's True Woman".

For the record this was a book for a course I am taking so I am not really attempting to become God's true woman!
Would have preferred a 3.5 rating but alas, as we all know, those helpful mid-points are not available to us! Still, not a bad read.

We are reading this for our ladies' Bible study. The chapters are written by different Christian ladies, including Nancy Leigh DeMoss (who is the editor), Carolyn Mahaney, P. Bunny Wilson, Mary Kassian, and Barbara Hughes. It comes with study questions in the back, very helpful for a group of women to read it and discuss it together. We are doing two chapters per week, in an hour-and-a-half, which is pushing it for having a good discussion. One of the chapters we read today, "Pruned to Bloom," w ...more

“Because God created male and female, we women are innately feminine. Granted, a woman can accentuate her femininity or she can detract from it, but she cannot change it—our sex chromosomes are in every cell of our bodies. Our femininity is a gift of grace from a loving God.” 0 likes
