Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With everything you have to do, have you taken the time to decide Who you Want to be?

From best-selling author Priscilla Shirer, in partnership with the creators of The Love Dare, comes a resolution that challenges you to realign your daily decisions in a way that glorifies God and fulfills who He created you to be. Layered with biblical truth and seasoned with encouragement, The Resolution for Women will inspire the woman you see in the mirror to trust God’s perfect plan for her life, resolving to become “purposefully feminine, surprisingly satisfied, and faithfully His.”

This book was written in connection with the movie "Courageous." In the movie, the main male characters are challenged to commit themselves to live according to scriptural principles in the form of a resolution for men. "The Resolution for Women" by Priscilla Shirer looks at the other side of the issue by challenging women to make a resolution to live according scriptural principles for women.

"The Resolution for Women" has short chapters and can be read either of two ways; quickly consume the information and complete the book or read just a chapter or two per day and prayerfully meditate on what changes would have to made in one's own life in order to adhere to the resolution. I chose the latter method and am glad I did.

The focus of the various chapters are: being content, biblical femininity, valuing myself, devoted to Christ, following God's priorities, esteeming others with my full attention, demonstrating forgiveness, living with integrity, blessing your husband, training my children, living with grace, and leaving a godly legacy. As you can tell from the chapter topics, this is a comprehensive book. Fortunately, it is NOT written in a manner that puts one under the pile. Rather, it is written as a challenge to be all you can from a friend that believes the best in you. I recommend it highly.

One of the best books I have ever read! This resolution teaches women how to live as a strong, graceful, Christian woman in a world filled with alternative views and poor role models. Beautifully written in a captivating way.

After reading the "Resolution for Men," I keep thinking if there is also an equivalent set of challenges for the female folks as well. This book fills in the gap. Amazingly, it is indeed an excellent companion. If husbands read the men's resolutions, it will be especially helpful if wives read this book at the same time. There are some similarities with the men's version. Firstly, there is a one-page resolution specifically for women, albeit with 13 resolutions compared with 12 for the men's version. This does not mean the ladies do more. It is simply the author's way of making her points clearer with regards to what the women of God can resolve to do. Secondly, both books are companion volumes to the COURAGEOUS movie (Sherwood Pictures) and COURAGEOUS LIVING book (Michael Catt). Thirdly, both books are attempts to raise the bar for self. The best way to challenge oneself is to keep the bar high enough to motivate us to be excellent people. Finally, just like 'Resolutions for Men,' each chapter ends with a specific challenge. Theory must be put into practice.

Unlike the men's version, Shirer is a little more delicate in the motivational aspect. The Men's version has a lot more of recognizing the call for men, and the need for men to respond to this call. It is somewhat a more direct, goal-getter, target setting style. The Women's version goes a little deeper in terms of being more indirect, more explanatory, and more questions for personal reflection. The Men's version has relatively more imperative challenges, and a proactive approach to working out the challenges. The women's version has challenges too, but proceeds in a more contemplative manner. The Men's version has a greater amount of telling and showing one what to do.

There is lots of encouragement in this book, but I didn't think it lived up to the reviews very well. If you have done any bible studies in the past, I doubt you will be challenged by anything new or earth shaking. I found her writing style to be so casual that the book just seemed trite and sometimes silly. She uses many cliches in the book and her examples are often shallow. There are few references to Scripture, so if you are looking for a bible study, this is not the book for you. Usually, you wouldn't even have to read the chapter in order to answer the questions following each chapter. I did especially appreciate the chapter on how to be a good listener, but, other than that, I've struggled to read this book. If you are new to Christianity or challenging yourself to live with purpose, you may find this book helpful, otherwise, I'd take a pass on it!

We have used this book as a women's Bible Study. This book, at first, doesn't seem like much, but when you begin to pray and read each section carefully, it is amazing! Priscilla Shirer has done a tremendous job of making this book easy to read and understand and the questions at the end of each section bring each section to a real life application. I would recommend this book to any Christian woman, no matter their age or marital status.

Having seen the movie "Courageous" I went searching Amazon for these Resolution books for me and for my husband. If ever we have any intention to 'being a better person tomorrow than we are today", this book has so many helpful parts to start working on it. It would also be a good book for a few ladies to get a small group together to study, discuss ideas, and hold each other accountable as they walk through the book. Get ready for some very challenging discussions, though! But this is very. very good food for thought, and ammunition for the battles of today's world. We need to stand up, raise the bar, and be ready to help others attain their goals as well! THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ALL!
