Powerful challenge to live godly
on September 20, 2011
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.
