"Several years ago I was introduced to Martha Peace through her book The Excellent Wife. I remember then saying, 'This is the best book Ive ever read on the topic of the wife. Martha deals with real issues that wives face and offers real biblical solutions. Damsels in Distress is also a book about real problems with real biblical solutions. This is a must for women who are struggling with deep-rooted sin and for women who desire to help other women to live victoriously in Christ Jesus." --Susan J. Heck, author of With the Master in the School of Tested Faith
"Damsels in Distress clearly reveals Gods principles for dealing with the common problems women face - first with others, then with themselves. Through its pages you will be stimulated to honestly analyze the problems through the grid of Scripture and then formulate practical applications that bring glory to God." --Pat Ennis, professor, The Master's College, author of Precious in His Sight and The Fine Art of Becoming a Godly Woman
"In Damsels in Distress Martha exhorts her readers to an uncompromising standard of personal holiness. The chapters on the interpersonal sins of gossip and manipulation should be especially helpful for women who struggle with temptations to sinful speech." --Laura Hendrickson, MD, biblical counselor and coauthor of Will Medicine Stop the Pain?

The last chapter focused on responding biblically to trials and I found myself examining the various trials I've experienced in my life and whether or not I've always responded to them in a godly way. To my shame, I determined that I am often a great big failure at trials; thankfully God uses them in my life anyway. :-)
And that's the point. Mrs. Peace points out that trials may initially bring out the worst in us: anger, bitterness, fear, laziness, self-focus, etc. And isn't that the truth? Our first reaction to stress or tribulation may expose hidden sin that needs to be purged, as the "worst in us" is revealed.
Yet, as Mrs. Peace points out, God uses conflict and trials to expose and show us our sin, prune it off, and grow in us the precious fruit of righteousness:
"But thankfully, this 'worst' is pruned off as God convicts us of our sin and helps us turn from sin to righteousness. The pain from God's pruning will fade as the fruit of righteousness flowers for all to see." - Martha Peace
All the chapters were good and included many topics relevent to women. Topics like PMS, gossip and slander, manipulation, vanity, and legalism. Mrs. Peace teaches from a Reformed perspective and is doctrinally sound. I highly recommend this book for personal or group study.
