Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

T.D. Jakes's insights and expressions are balm for every woman's soul. As he explains so compassionately, we have lost sight of "the lady," and it is a loss that continues to buffet women and misdirect men. Jakes eschews condemnation and exposes the lies that have cloaked women in sorrow, helping women to stand in the beauty, strength, and confidence God intended.

Bishop Jakes, church founder, pastor, and author of numerous books, including the bestselling Woman, Thou Art Loosed!, structures this book in three parts. In the first, he gently takes the hand of every woman who has been ill-used, crippled in the innermost being, and shows her what is truly beautiful about the feminine. In part two, he opens the door for communication between husband and wife, lover and friend. Part three brings alive the passion of the Lord for women, this most exquisite of His creations.

Much has been lost. Weep with Bishop Jakes over the pain to which women have succumbed. But loss is not forever. In fact, any woman reading this book will likely feel something emerge within her, something long forgotten but something that rings of truth. --Ann Weinheimer --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

A popular Christian preacher, Jakes has produced many books (e.g., Woman, Thou Art Loosed!), videos and audio tapes that are gaining ever-increasing mainstream attention. Here, he demonstrates an unusual ability to inspire, uplift, teach and comfort. An eloquent wordsmith, this African-American minister writes with an abundance of memorable metaphors and yet speaks to women's hearts in practical, often humorous terms, about "three relationships that must be balanced in order to achieve some semblance of fulfillment"?with their husbands, God and themselves. Rather than suggesting that women be selfless and restricted to hearth and home, Jakes directs them toward healthy self-love, success and creative expression, to become and be treated as "women of excellence." Jakes maintains an intimate bond with readers to the last page, through deeply personal stories: his helplessness in the face of his wife's grief over the death of her mother; the joy and hope he feels at the sound of his little girl's footsteps; the memory of his own mother, "a gentle woman with the strength to build a home and the power to create a family." Despite his book's romance-novel title and strong Christian slant, this masterful preacher offers all women sound advice and gentle, respectful encouragement. Author tour.

Once again, Bishop Jakes has spent time talking with God and relaying it as only he can and in such a way that all can relate and understand. This books looks into the hearts and soul of many women, including myself. Healing is what it's all about...learning how to get beyond and to really be free from those things that hinder us from going forth in this world. Bishop shows us how to balance our lives and achieve this inner peace that we all long for.
I am not married but this book showed me how we as women should treat our husbands. At this point in my life, God is my husband and my Lord. I have learned how to worship and adore God as I would the mate that he will bring into my life. That book is an encouragement in itself in that Bishop Jakes tells us that we can have it all spiritually and emotionally.
I recommend this book to any woman who has a desire to grow and to really know what it means to be whole. I would also encourage all women to attend the Woman, Thou Art Loosed seminar in July. Last year it was breathtaking. This book really follows behind that whole seminar. I thank God for using Bishop Jakes in such a way. Bishop really has a deep compassion for women and for that I am thankful.
Keep up the good work Bishop!

Format: Paperback
A quick scan of the chapter titles is enough to pull you into this book. Once you begin reading it, you cannot put it down. The author maintains that every woman has three primary relationships: the one with herself, the one with her husband, and the one with her Lord. Before she can reach a state of balance in life, she must have each of these relationships firmly grounded and running smoothly.

A woman cannot establish a relationship with her husband until she has a good relationship with herself. She must feel like a lady in order to project those positive traits that will attract goodness into her life. This manual teaches a woman how to achieve a tranquil inner balance and project positive qualities. It teaches a woman how to create a balance between her three relationships.

This is one of the most powerfully written self-help books that I have found. The analogies are so picturesque that they will remain in your mind long after you finish reading the book. For example, the following statement is from early in the first chapter:
"Sadly, sometimes we place ourselves so far on the back burner that the dreams boil out and leave only a parched pot where once we had personal expectation. When dreams boil out, a scorching heat of stress and anxiety causes the kettle to give a shrill sound before the burning begins. That shrill sound can be heard in our excesses and overindulgences..."

Wow! Can you not picture that? Does it not leave a permanent picture, warning you to take care to not push yourself to the back burner as you work to put others first? The entire book is filled with wonderful analogies like this one.

Format: Hardcover
T.D. Jakes has a way of knowing what women want, and need. With the well received "Woman Thou Art Loosed," and the follow up "Daddy Love His Little Girls," now women everywhere are praising "The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord!" He knows what women think and offer how we can get what we desire, along with scripturally-based reasons why we don't. His books touch on crucial topics such as, A Woman with Balance (chapter 5) that allows women to see the need for balance in all areas of their lives. The husband, the children, work and God need equal attention to be fruitful. If we become too one sided in our focus then something suffers.
In chapter 9 T.D. Jakes discusses Pillow Talk, where he enlightens us regarding the power of words and how we need to be an encouarging feminine voice that doesn't tear down, but instead learn how to compliment, encourage and build up. T.D. Jakes is saying that while we will all have disagreements, women should never become a nagging presence, but instead a soothing one, reminding the man in her life that she will now and forever support him. He urges us to allow our words to be words of caring and nurture.
Chapter 14 eloquently touched on the topic of Serving the Lord and Making the Money. He reminds us as the bible warns that we cannot serve two masters. Money and career is only an enhancement of our lives and should never become the scope of who we are. God should be the focus of all of our endeavors. I highly recommend this enlightening book for every woman who seeks a deeper understanding of themselves, their spouse and their God. T.D. Jakes is inspirational and gently touches on topics that meet the needs of women everywhere. The Lady Her Lover and Her Lord not only gives us Godly instruction, but also the inside track from T.D. Jakes perspective as a man.
