Confession: I’m a legalist at heart. Underneath my veneer of laziness and selfishness, there’s a secret part of me that longs to save myself instead of trusting in God to save me. I want to be the hero. I want to be the good guy. I want to stand before God on Judgment Day and hear Him say, “I had a lot of great servants who did a great job, but you -- you are something special.”

That’s why a book like this is so dangerous for a legalist like me.

So this book was written to help Christian women to

So many times I pick up books written for Christian women, read a few chapters, and then set them down in disappointment. This was not one of those books. So many books that I read have flawed theology or fail to set high enough expectations. This book was not like that. By far, this was one of the most edifying and convicting books I've ever read.

The authors of Becoming a Woman Who Pleases God are so wise, but yet so real. The book that they have written is refreshing, inspiring, and grounded i

If you plan on reading this book you should plan on it taking about 10 months (one month per chapter).

It is good to do this study with other women (both older and younger

It was okay. I think the chapters varied depending on who wrote it. I think this provides a lot of food for thought. I think... I guess I ought to count it a blessing that I'm in a community that holds onto God's word and people live it out. So I guess if I didn't have that, this book would be more interesting. Buuuut as it is.. I don't know. *yawn? *

It challenges my thoughts about what a Biblically godly woman should be against my current 21st Century feminist ideas.

I LOVE this book. So much practical advice on how to run a household for the Glory of the Lord. I refer to it often... since 2006, almost like a handbook.
