I paced myself while reading this book because I wanted to make sure I absorbed and grasped everything that Dr. Munroe said. This book is phenomenal! I suggest both women and men read this book, learn, absorb and practice the information given and share it with others.

This was truly an amazing book. A woman learns her true value, and her equality to man, if she's not already in tuned with this aspect of her existence. It truly helps her to see herself as God sees her.

Wonderful book for women. Enlightening, insightful and meaningful!

Dr. Munroe opens the floor to have a difficult but necessary conversation with this one. He discusses the role/purpose of both men and women, sans cultural influences, but in the way that God purposed it from the very beginning. Not taking a side, no personal biases and opinions but pure Bible teaching on the woman’s design and purpose and how men are to relate to her (and vice versa). Great book. Highly recommended. A must read!

An intriguing read on the role and purpose of woman. I started reading this book with a light heart but pretty soon I was impressed with the wealth of information found within the book.

I loved how the author included examples and real life situations to further enhance the importance of the content of the book.

This book provided a dignified and valued perspective on the differences between males and females and how these differences can be reconciled to have better relationships.

This is a phenomenal book!!! I absorbed the information like a sponge. So important for us to know our purpose and live according to Gods design for your lives. This book impacted my life in so many ways. I have a clearer perspective of my purpose as a woman and thank God I read this book before marriage

It helps you to understand the original make-up of a woman and her role as a leader, a wife, a mother and her capacity to impact a man, a child and even a nation. It is profoundly insightful. In fact, I was so impacted by it, I brought several to give away.

I intended to reread this book but just couldnt do it. I sort of skimmed through, dust some cobwebs in my head and moved on. So officially I've read it 1 & 1/2 times or maybe 1 & 1/8 lol. What I should say however is that it was good the first time around!

A load of great stuff, but, he took so long to get to the point, considering I've already read its counterpart for males (a lot of stuff is repeated) it was quite a tedious read... But still had a lot of good stuff

Life changing! Brought a deeper understanding of womanhood and dispelled many of the myths and wrong teachings. A book for every woman - and the men who wants to understand God's purpose for the woman.

I recommend this book to all the ladies out there who would like to know who they are in Christ (position), why God made them the way they are (design, influence and purpose) and their place in Christ, a home and society (dominion). A woman who knows who she is fulfilled.

Truly deep. The book takes you all the way back to Genesis, the beginning of it all. It shows you God's original plan, how man, because of sin destroyed that plan and God's desire to restore us, to the original plan.

Women are not just our decorative artistic splendors, they need the same treatment just as male humans. This book will give you the power and purpose of the woman in your life. Let it happen to yourself. Read this book.

My sister recommended this to me. Really helped to open my eyes some to the pressures and dangers females face. So much unappreciation and exploitation in the world.. Men have a lot of manning-up to do on our sisters', mothers', and daughters' behalves.

James Brown said, "It's A Man's World" but it wouldn't be nothing, nothing
without a woman or a girl! Certainly and that's why we must search and find out our purpose. I've got to read this again. I love Dr. Munroe's work.

This pastor came to speak at the church I attend. He was amazing and uplifting. This book is something that every man and woman should read. It's about our design and how and why God made Woman and our purpose.

Excellent read for every "woman of God". It really gives an accurate and sound biblical based insights into women- the way we're were created, why we were created, and how to get in alignment with our purpose to awaken our greatness!!
