As a Pastor's wife I have had to jump in many places to lead women. In fact throughout my adult life I have been in leadership roles for many organizations and jobs, as well as the church. At one point I was in charge of over 300 women as an Associate District Manager. I thought I had arrived and was doing well, yet felt empty. I was raised in the 60's and 70's and we were taught throughout school that anyone, especially women could be and do anything. I bought it hook, line, and sinker. In fact so much so that when I was dating a man (not my husband) he asked me what I wanted to do the rest of my life. I gave him the answer I thought everyone wanted to hear, have a career. He wasn't looking for a woman like that. At the time it broke my heart, but now I know that the Lord used that to teach me a lesson; I was in it for myself and wanted to be important and successful for me and me alone. After all, wasn't that what I was taught.
In this amazing book the authors show you how you can have value and worth and do things for the right reasons in the home, in you job and in other positions where you have influence over others. The values we have as Believers are not just for the home and church, they are for everyday life and for every position we hold as women.
The book is full of practical and personal examples to help you catch what the authors are trying to teach. It also has wonderful review at the end of each chapter to help you think a little more about what they were saying and how you can apply it to your life.
I think this is a book every woman should read, whether she is in a leadership position or not!
