From the Inside Flap
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 . . .

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
