I've read a lot of books about what it means to live life as a Christian woman. This one is outstanding! Jan Winebrenner lists 17 spiritual disciplines and I thought the sections about the disciplines of secrecy and silence were fascinating. I checked this book out of the library and read it, as I usually do, armed with post-it arrows. When I was done, the book looked like a porcupine with about 50 post-its sticking out of it. I decided that if this book had that many excellent points, I needed to purchase it! So now I'll reread it, with highlighter in hand this time! I also recommend "A Place of Quiet Rest" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss, "The Contemplative Mom" by Ann Kroeker, "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World" by Joanna Weaver, and "When the Soul Listens" by Jan Johnson. May God bless you richly as you pursue a deep relationship with Him! Please check out my other reviews of Christian books!
This is a wonderful book! Jan Winebrenner's insight into the heart of God is inspiring. I want to stay home from work and read all day, curled in my comfy chair in front of the fireplace with this book and a cup of tea.
This is a wonderful book on Spiritual Discipline especially when you are in a area in your life where you need to be discipline. We sometimes as believers don't like to be discipline but in the end it works out for our good. The bible tells us all things work together for the good of them that love the Lord. I would like to thank God for the writer of this book becuase she was open to share her experiences and in that God allowed her to help many other people. We should always thank God for the gifts that he gives to men and women.
I purchased this book to follow along with a ladies church group I am involved with. I have not read it from cover to cover as of yet but what I have read is wonderful and an easy read. I would recommend this book for any lady wanting to dig a little but does not have a lot of time for reading.
