Life Ready Woman
Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis
Do you ever wonder if you’re living the life God has in store for you?
Do you ever wonder how you can do everything and do it well?
Does it seem like it’s hard to be a modern woman and still live life from a biblical perspective?
Are you living life according to God’s best plan for you or the world’s best plan?
In Life Ready Woman, Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis address the issues that modern woman face; issues that are completely different than those our mothers and grandmothers encountered. With so many opportunities available to woman today, we can do anything we want and we can become anything we want. The key is making sure we are following the individual compass God has provided each of us. Life Ready Woman takes a look at the biblical guidelines for being a woman as well as the biblical guidelines of being a wife and explains how we can, and should, apply these concepts in our lives so that we can live as “Life Ready” women – clear about our lives, bold in our faith and able to find God’s best for us.
This book was such an encouraging book; I learned so much about what God has to say about being a woman and being a wife. This book definitely keeps it real, reminding woman that you can never really “have it all” – something will suffer if you try and do everything, it might be your job, it might be your relationship with your kids, it might be your own wants and desires. It’s definitely the truth, many woman are torn between jobs and family in our modern society. The idea here is that we trust God and his plan and really follow his calling for our lives.
The first section of this book takes a look at what God desires for our lives while the second half shows how you can take the steps to live that life. Topics covered include stewarding the gifts God has given you, wisdom with a man and being God’s servant. The authors are careful to include information for woman at all stages of life from single to widowed and make sure to give examples for these different stages.
Life Ready Woman is based on a video Bible study series; after reading this book, I am very interested in being a part of such a study. I would recommend this book to every woman, it’s never a bad thing to take a look at your life and how it compares to what God has planned for you.
