Today, women are more empowered and strong than we were 100 years ago. We have made a lot of progress, but we have all cringed at the caricatures of womanhood we encounter even today. Everybody has an opinion of the role(s) and views of womanhood.
This book goes back to the beginning of creation to explore what God may have intended. This book is not a Bible expository or study of ancient cultures. The purpose of this book is to ask questions, to suppose, to wonder if maybe we've had it all wrong.
Maybe God had a different idea when He created women. Maybe His idea has been masked for centuries by tradition, cultures, and societies. Maybe His plan for women is more glorious than what we can even imagine.
This book also creates a contrast between women after the curse in the Garden of Eden, and the women who have become redeemed by Jesus. This world expects us to be cursed, fallen, a caricature of ourselves. God's picture and view of women is much different. He honors us. He does not shame us. He does not think we are second-class citizens. He does not think we are weak. He has given us gifts and abilities to use to bring light and hope to others. He knows He created us strong.
Explore with the author how this world truly is different for girls, and how much the world needs women who walk in true, redeemed womanhood.

Will she be able to find the root of the behavior she sees in these little girls? And when she does, will she be able to withstand the weight of the stark reality, or will it break her will and her resolve to continue fighting against child abuse and neglect?

Love. It's the most talked about subject in poems and songs. It is idealized as the most coveted thing to obtain. People surround themselves with family and friends thinking that will make them feel loved. Yet people are still lonely. Maybe we've gotten the idea of love all wrong. Maybe the pursuit of love isn't the goal. Maybe the giving of love is the highest pursuit. But how do we love? How do we show others how much they mean to us? This book explores love in all relationships - not just romantic ones. It gives practical advice and wisdom on how to truly give love - not just pursue it for selfish reasons.
This book is your answer to your mid-life crisis. You don't have to accept that your life is half over or half done. There is still much for you to do. You have a purpose. You have a calling.
The culture says that the older generation is not needed, wanted or relevant anymore. But that is not true. YOU are still needed. YOU are still wanted. YOU are still relevant. However, your role changes during this season.
This book explores the roles that the older generation MUST assume in order to leave the world better than what we found it. The next generation still needs us; however, our mindsets and tasks change because the roles are different.
God designed the older generation to assume specific responsibilities. Accept your calling; slide into home base with every ounce of your being, yelling with joy at the miracles performed by our God. Don't leave any part of you on the field when you leave this earth. Now is the time to give it your all.
