Becoming a Woman of Excellence 30th Anniversary Edition is a book I’ve slowly been going through during my daily quiet times. As a mom of three children under the age of 10 one being a nearly three month old makes those moments few and far between but I felt this study-book is pretty forgiving of that. In the daily mundane tasks of life that all of us face I wanted to make sure that I wasn’t slacking in pursing the woman God created me to be. I’m to be a shining light to those around, especially those that are with me on a daily basis. Seasons can be dry but we shouldn’t let that pull us down!
The author takes her inspiration from the story and character of Ruth. We all can learn so much from Ruth and the author did a great job in putting it together! I can really see why they decided to make a 30th anniversary edition. I feel all the truths and words can apply to woman of today! The main goal of this self-growth book is to become a woman that is glorifying to the Lord through all decisions and situations whenever and however they come to pass.
This book is broken up into four parts; The Goal, The Cost, The Prize, and The Praise. Each part has several chapter sections. It’s in a study heavy reflective format. There’s a lot of scripture to look up, read, and then write personal thoughts on. Some Bible verses are printed word for word but most you’ll need to look up. I like studies that encourage one to open their Bible. This book has gotten me thinking of things I’ve never even given a second thought about. Throughout opinions on the author are given from her own life and insights from popular Christian authors/speakers but mainly there’s much reflection of the words straight from the Bible.
I feel this is a book that a woman of any age should pick up. It would be a wonderful book choice to study alone or in a group. It gets you thinking about what it means to be a woman of excellence and the steps to take to be one!
