Yesterday, I recited from this book the "Who Are We?" poem at a brunch in front of a group of highly successful women I had never met. The words, written by Dr. Hale, gave me the confidence to stand up and read loudly with passion in front of the room. After the wonderful applause, everyone wanted to know more about the author and this book. It was a great way to introduce myself and spark interesting conversations.

I'm most impressed with Dr. Hale's transparency about her insecurities, mistakes and disappointments: the time she was called Jezebel by her grandmother, entered a relationship she later regretted, felt like flying away, received a negative health diagnosis and struggled with sexual abstinence.

With references to biblical scriptures, this book offers practical advice on how to see yourself through God's eyes, to embrace His vision of the real you, celebrate your uniqueness, forgive yourself, renew, forgive others, dream and pursue perfection.

I am "a woman of influence, excellence and purpose...on assignment...positioned for perfection... soaring on wings of joy!"

What a joy and how encouraging it was to read this book! I highly recommend it for all women - married, single, young and old.

I'm a piece of work is a must read for all women. I especially believe young ladies 15 and up can really find insight into being the women God wants to be and the struggle of being the women the world wants them to be. Pastor Hale weaves through the book scriptures and her life experiences and talks candidly about her challenges that we all have had as women: pleasing men, relationship with food, and relationship with relatives and friends. You will find yourself in the book, this book will allow you to think deeper about the women God wants you to become.

This is a wonderful reminder, written in a personal way, that women are fearfully and wonderfully made, That no matter what our lot in life, God made us to be who we are. It is beautifully laid out and builds upon specific scriptures, like Psalm 139 and Jeremiah 29.
There is no excuse for women to feel inadequate, have low self esteem and struggle with life's issues when we are obedient to God's calling, He keeps us.

I chose the highest possible rating because I am very pleased with the writing and got way more than I expected. I can apply this book to my every day life and also use it as a guide and as a source of reference in Bible study, etc . A must read for any young, middle-aged or woman in golden years cause God is not through with us yet!

This is a book that I would have enjoyed and benefitted from a great deal more when I was young and single. It had a few good points here and there. I really wouldn't recommend it to many people over 40 and married.

This is a great read for women looking for answers and encouragement. It is a beautifully written, thoughtful Piece of Work! Dr. Hale was able to weave her personality into this literature in a way that provided comic relief without minimizing the issues. Her insight sheds "rays of hope" on difficult yet challenging topics for women. Initially, it sounds a little like preaching to the choir for a mature believer. However, the topics are relevant and timeless and it presents as a personal guide for a "healthier, happier you". The sharing of personal experiences were priceless as she made herself vulnerable and open to women who may long for a mentor. As you read, you feel like you are having tea with a best friend on a breezy summer day, at best its refreshing and authentic! Over the years Dr. Hale has been consistent and unyielding regarding her messages on "singleness". I can appreciate her biblical reference on this issue. However, I worry that she will become boxed in as the face of "christian singleness" when there is so much more to who she is. For instance I would love to hear more about her political beliefs in her NEXT BOOK! I have followed Dr. Hale's progress over the years as she has made monumental strides in the pedagogy of theological perspectives, her passion for politics and people as well as her devotion to leadership and my admiration for her work is far reaching. Thanks for sharing your thoughts in this book.

We used this book for a book study during our Women's Day activities and it was a true blessing. It challenged us, convicted us, and encouraged us to press on toward maturity in Christ!
