From the Inside Flap

Excerpt
Welcome to the next 90 days of your life. Those days will unfold whether or not you live them with purpose and passion. You can just mark time, muddle through each day and stumble closer
to the end of your time on earth.
Or, you can choose to "run with perseverance the race marked out for you" (Heb12:1). This book is your invitation to run with perseverance. But it's more than an invitation. It's your own personal jump start for living the Proverbs 31 life! I've been following God and studying his Word for nearly thirty years, yet somehow I thought the Proverbs 31 woman was a mythological creature or worse. I thought she was a weapon used by spiritual leaders to make all of us ordinary Christian women feel bad about ourselves. But then I met her in person . . .

Format: Paperback
I have read all of Donna's books and eagerly awaited this latest title. It follows the same format I've grown so accustomed to: Scripture reading and memorization, guided prayer, my own personal prayer, a daily affirmation and practical suggestions on making the Word come alive. I love the 90 Day jumpstart titles she has penned. They help me to have a disciplined daily time with God, where I actually have to slow down and quiet down. These books are not to be raced through. And don't expect a major transformation at the end. As she points out, these guides are to help you get a "jump start"....to begin some new habits.

In this parpticular title, Ms. Partow takes a 90 day look at the Proverbs 31 woman. If you just read through those 20 or so verses in Scripture, the woman described therein is a dauting role model for any woman to live up to. But by breaking the verses down and taking a leisurely 90 day journey in getting to look at her, one has time to hear from the Father for one's self how to apply the text. If, as a result of jump starting new habits, you end up deeper in Bible Study or researching other ways to get out of debt, earn more income, declutter your home, balance your check book, discipline your children, be more loving towards your mate--then that's a good result! You will have opened up your mind and that's always a good thing.

There are good solid tips on financial planning, entrepreneurship, living a physically healthy lifestyle, being an organized and creative homemaker, a loving wife, nurturing mother, godly woman--all the attributes of the Proverbs 31 woman. The author does not force anything on you. In fact, she tells you in so many words to let the Holy Spirit speak to you as to what areas you need to focus on and in what ways.

Format: Paperback
This book is so good that I'm doing it again - not because I didn't complete the 90-days, but because I want to make sure I didn't miss anything. It's not just a book - it's an adventure. I enjoyed it so much because it caused me to rethink my whole life. It is very engaging and it starts with small, achievable goals. I plan to use this book even after I'm finished my 2nd 90-day adventure. It feels so good to let go of so many things (purge), spend time with God daily and just get reorganized. This is really a great book! I can't wait to read the next one.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love the format in which this book was written. The questions and checklists allow you to see how you are progressing. They allow you to see where accountability is needed, and you'll want to improve for the next week. The author puts into perspective what a woman needs to know about her spiritual growth. If you are spiritually weak, chances are, you are physically, mentally, and emotionally weak as well. This book is a great guide, very specific, and easy to follow.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was introduced to this book by a friend who was going through marital difficulties. She was very earnest in her efforts to keep her family together. One of her battles - anger - had seemed to overshadow things at very inopportune times. During a time of separation from her husband, she asked her children, "What can I do to change so that Daddy will want to come home?" In surprise one of her sons said, "But Mommy, you already HAVE changed!"

I got the book and began my own journey through Proverbs, with the greatest ease. I love the assignments, the encouragement, the direction this book takes me on a daily journey. Eventually I purchased it for all of my sisters and friends in my Bible Study group. We are purging our homes, enhancing our health and lifestyles, drawing closer to our Creator and each other.

Format: Paperback
Becoming the Woman God Wants Me to Be: A 90-Day Guide to Living the Proverbs 31 Life <Donna Partow, Revell, 2008> is a mixed bag. It has definite strengths and some distinct weaknesses.

On the plus side is Becoming's originality, readability, style, tone and format. Partow's style is brisk and engaging. Her tone is warm, congenial and passionate. Becoming offers readers numerous strategies for change in different areas including physical health, daily routine, family relationships, finances and spiritual growth in a format that's clear and easy to follow.

In the Beginning...
This book begins with an introduction featuring a Program Overview and "what you can hope to accomplish on this 90-Day Jumpstart." Areas include: Faith, Family, Fitness, Personal Appearance and Fashion, Finances and Retirement Planning, Household Management, Ministry, Business, and Self-Management. Also a "What You'll Need" List.

Chapters average three to five pages in length and are easily digested. Also included is a daily Scripture to memorize, a Bible passage, and a guided prayer, followed by Personal and Practical sections. Each week wraps up with a Weekly Check-Up, a Practical Checklist, and a Weekly Reflection and Evaluation.

Sound or Silly?
There is much to commend in Week One, Faith Foundations, and Week Two, Godly Habits. Chapters include discussions on Time Alone With God, Meditate on God's Word, Focus on the Positive as well as Becoming "Consciously Selective", Stay Planted in the Word of God and Devote Yourself to Prayer. However, bits and pieces of "excuse me?" seep in occasionally. Some readers may file the recommendations on Day 11, Sleep in Peace (p. 56), and Day 12, Be Diligent (p.
