The Resolution for Women


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."

My Review:

These thought-provoking devotionals on 13 resolutions were inspired by the movie Courageous. Each devotional ends with a few pointed questions that prompt self-exploration and honest reflection. Very eye-opening.

Written in 1st person, Shirer creates the ambiance of a girlfriends chatting over tea. Personable and engaging, her words envelope the reader with warmth and encouragement. One of my favourite reflections is the section entitled Purposefully Feminine. The author poses probing questions about how women today have turned away from the ideal of biblical womanhood and challenges the reader to examine her own life, encouraging her to go against the tide of the world.

A perfect compliment to the movie, Courageous and the companion book, The Resolution for Men.

  1. I love the idea of the Resolution for Women. My hubby and I saw the movie, and LOVED it, but it was focused on the men. I'm interested in seeing what the Resolution for Women includes.

  2. Tracy -- personally I thought the Resolution for Women was way better than the one for men!!! But then maybe that's because I'm a woman! It really resonated with me though and I love that womanly qualities were praised and encouraged. Definitely something 21st century women need to here.
