What if we stopped placing our confidence in the things of this world—and instead put our trust in the only one who is truly trustworthy?
As you begin to apply each chapter’s material, you’ll discover
- the true meaning of confidence,
- the difference between negative fear and positive fear, and
- how to turn the Enemy’s tool of fear on its head with strong confidence.
Be honest: Who among us isn’t plagued with fears, insecurities, and self-doubt?
Popular wisdom says the solution is to simply believe more strongly in ourselves. But award-winning author and speaker Mary A. Kassian explains that the way to combat fear is with more fear—fear of a different kind.
In this follow-up to her popular book The Right Kind of Strong, Kassian again draws on her vast biblical knowledge to show us a better way to navigate life. She compares the Bible’s definition of confidence with the world’s well-worn self-help formulas and sets us on the right path.
Whether you’re seeking more confidence or already feeling full of it, when you lean into a source of confidence that is unchanging, firm, and trustworthy, you’ll become more like the bold, courageous woman God created you to be.
“In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence.” (Proverbs 14:26)
Award-winning author Mary Kassian provides readers a biblical guide to becoming the strong, resilient, capable women God created them to be.
Our culture teaches us that it's important for women to be strong. The Bible agrees. Unfortunately, culture's idea of what makes a woman strong doesn't always align with the Bible's. As a result, Christians often have a skewed view of what constitutes strength. In The Right Kind of Strong, Mary Kassian delves into Paul's exhortation in 2 Timothy about the women of the church in Ephesus and uncovers warnings and truths about seven habits that can sap women's strength. She helps readers avoid these pitfalls by
- carefully considering the people they allow into their lives,
- taking control of their minds by taking every thought captive,
- quickly and regularly confessing sin,
- intentionally engaging their emotions,
- living out what they’re learning,
- developing confident convictions, and
- embracing their human weakness and leaning on the Lord.
She reveals how, by implementing these seven habits, Christian women can walk in freedom and grow to be strong God's way.
Bible teachers Mary A. Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss share the key fundamentals of biblical womanhood in this eight week study. Each week includes five daily individual lessons leading to a group time of sharing and digging deeper into God's Word. And to enhance this time of learning together, on-line videos are available featuring Mary and Nancy as they encourage women to discover and embrace God's design and mission for their lives.
La galardonada autora Mary Kassian proporciona una guía bíblica para convertirse en las mujeres fuertes, resistentes y capaces que Dios creó.
Nuestra cultura nos enseña que es importante que las mujeres sean fuertes. La Biblia está de acuerdo. Desafortunadamente, la idea de la cultura de lo que hace a una mujer fuerte no siempre se alinea con la Biblia. Como resultado, los cristianos a menudo tienen una visión sesgada de lo que constituye fuerza. En La verdadera fortaleza, Mary Kassian profundiza en la exhortación de Pablo en 2 Timoteo sobre las mujeres de la iglesia en Éfeso y descubre advertencias y verdades sobre siete hábitos que pueden minar la fortaleza de las mujeres. Ella revela cómo, al protegerse contra estos siete escollos, las mujeres cristianas pueden caminar en libertad y crecer para ser fuertes a la manera de Dios.
Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Mary Kassian take you through the book of Titus in the New Testament to focus on some important elements of redeemed womanhood. Each week of this True Woman 201 study examines one of the ten “design elements” of womanhood drawn from Titus 2. The weeks are each divided into five lessons, leading to a group time of sharing and digging deeper into God’s Word.
Inundated by popular culture, many women have lost their bearings and no longer trust the internal compass that intuitively affirms those things that are good, true, and noble about womanhood.
As Jesus’ favorite and most powerful teaching tactic was the parable, it is appropriate that Mary Kassian walks the reader through the compelling tale of the wild versus wise woman found in Proverbs 7. By using 20 points of contrast, she helps readers discern wild from wise, saucy from biblically savvy, and more.
Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild will captivate, convict, and challenge women to become decreasingly worldly and increasingly godly, and it will equip them with truth for that journey.
Includes questions for personal reflection at the end of each chapter
Las ocho semanas de este estudio se dividen cada una en cinco lecciones y necesitarás aproximada- mente veinte minutos para completar cada lección.

Kassian and Nancy Leigh DeMoss is for you!

Have you ever wondered why God made both male and female? Have you thought about His purpose for you as a female? Have you considered the fact that God has intentionally planned everything about your life?
Then join Bible teachers Susan Hunt and Mary A. Kassian in this 35-day devotional, digging deep into God's Word, hearing what He says about your womanhood, and learning how to live as a "true woman" day by day.
Each day begins with a short devotion and then a 'Time For You' section—a time for you to read, think, and pray about living for God's glory. Interspersed throughout are personal stories and thoughts from girls like you:
What you spend your time with and allow your mind to dwell on will be displayed in your life. Girls need to realize that they should only spend their time enjoying the words, sounds, and images they want to become. (Allison, age 17)
The media encourages girls to be loud and bossy. In shows, the quiet girl is always picked on and ridiculed. (Connie Jean, age 13)
Modesty to me is beauty. It outwardly symbolizes what Christ has done to our hearts—made them new, clean and worthy of coming into God's presence . . . that’s what modesty is about. (RuthAnne, age 17)

Highly anticipated follow-up to the True Woman 101 Bible study for women
When we step into God’s plan for womanhood, we step into the great adventure of discovering who we’re created to be. The greatest display of God’s glory, the greatest wholeness of personhood, the greatest joy of human relationships, and the greatest fruitfulness in ministry come about when we embrace and celebrate His design.
In this Bible study for women, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Mary Kassian delve into Titus 2 to celebrate redeemed womanhood. Exploring 10 “design elements” of biblical womanhood, they will lead you on a 10-week journey of discovering what a beautiful heart looks like, and how it leads to a beautiful life.
Each week is divided into five lessons that provide opportunity for group interaction and delving deep into Scripture. You'll explore the following themes:
The Lord wants to come in and do a radical renovation of your heart. He wants to change you into a godly woman from the inside out. If you let Him, He’ll give you an extreme makeover . . . a new interior design. Why wait? Begin your renovation today.
