A Conversation with God for Women by Marcia Ford

A Conversation with God for Women allows readers a one-on-one conversation with God, Jesus, and other biblical characters as they respond to questions and concerns facing today’s Christian women. Each answer, designed for both believers and seekers, is based on Scripture.

Categories and sample questions include:

  • God, why don’t You just reveal Yourself?
  • Jesus, why was a virgin birth necessary?
  • The Bible, what can it teach women?
  • Life, what about women in ministry?
  • Prayer, can it really make a difference?
  • Relationships, how can we trust after betrayal?
  • Good and evil, how can they coexist?

I didn’t like this book.  It took me forever to read it and even longer to decide how to write this review.  I hate writing bad reviews, but was too uncomfortable with the book to give it a good one.

The questions are great, they are things we ask ourselves every day.  The answers are based on scripture, but she uses so many versions of the Bible to write the answers that it seems she is hand picking the version to suite her answer.  She also relies heavily on the Messenger, which was the first thing to throw me off.  I cannot in good conscience recommend this book to anyone.

Pursuit of Proverbs 31 by Amy Bayliss is a book that dispels the myths surrounding the Proverbs 31 woman and gives a glimpse into the truth behind these verses of scripture.

It takes us from a works based mentality to one that frees us to accept that Christ is the only one who could ever fulfill scripture. Yet, there is practical wisdom and knowledge to be gained from those verses.

The book dives deep into the character traits represented and how we can accomplish them while keeping Christ as the focus. It is a short read but it is packed full of wisdom and practical application.

This book was timely for me as I finished reading it shortly before my aunt passed away.  At her funeral, everyone referred to her as a true Proverbs 31 woman.  A mother of three, she was a retired first grade teacher, whose hands were never idol.  She was an excellent cook; crocheted, smocked, canned…She volunteered at the pioneer museum near her home and taught the visitor to bake biscuits from scratch on a wood burning stove.  She was a true Proverbs 31 woman, but those like her are few and far between.

In her book, Amy Bayliss shows us that the woman in Proverbs 31 was an idealized woman in a prayer of a mother for her son.  As a mother of boys myself, I can easily see this (since it was explained to me) as I would want such an ideal wife for my boys.  Amy then takes us through a bible study that shows what God really expects from us as Christian women.

The book was very eye-opening for me.  I felt truly blessed to be able to review this book and will definitely be using it more in the future.

About the Author:  Amy Bayliss, then Grant, began blogging in 2005. Since that time she has trail blazed through the blog scene co-founding and propelling online retreats like Homemaker’s Challenge, and her personal website: Cajun Joie de Vivre.

She has been featured Woman’s Day Magazine, Inside Out Programming, and was the feature story and cover girl for CWO Magazine in August of 2008.

Currently, she is a regular columnist or contributing writer to the following publications: Sisters in Bloom, RooMag by Candace Cameron Bure, The Better Mom, and A Martha Heart

Amy is the author of Pursuit of Proverbs 31 and Do It Yourself Online Ministry. She is now wife to Ryan and mom to four rambunctious boys that range in age from 18 months to 15 years. They reside in Cajun Country where they worship and serve under Healing Place Church.

The book can be purchased for Kindle at Amazon or for Nook at Barnes & Noble.

Fruit of My Spirit by Deanna Nowadnick

by Lesa

Fruit of My Spirit by Deanna Nowadnick is a collection of short stories from Deanna’s life. Stories that she shares with us as examples of how God’s grace, love and forgiveness is unfailing. How, in retrospect, we can all look back at the messes we have made of our lives when we choose to follow our own lead instead of that of God and see how he uses it to work us into his masterpiece.
