Captivating

As a wife and mother, I'm always on the look out for non-fiction books that can help me in my walk with Christ and also help me in my family roles. I recently discovered the book Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge.
I enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it for anyone wanting to dig deeper into knowing yourself and God's plan for your life.




Also available: Captivating - A Guided Journal

Every little girl has dreams of being swept up into a great adventure, of being the beautiful princess. Sadly, when women grow up, they are often swept up into a life filled merely with duty and demands. Many Christian women are tired, struggling under the weight of the pressure to be a "good servant," a nurturing caregiver, or a capable home manager.
What Wild at Heart did for men, Captivating can do for women.

This groundbreaking book shows readers the glorious design of women before the fall, describes how the feminine heart can be restored, and casts a vision for the power, freedom, and beauty of a woman released to be all she was meant to be. By revealing the core desires every woman shares-to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a grand adventure, and to unveil beauty-John and Stasi Eldredge invite women to recover their feminine hearts, created in the image of an intimate and passionate God. Further, they encourage men to discover the secret of a woman's soul and to delight in the beauty and strength women were created to offer.

Hi Terri,

I looked the book up and I am interested in reading it. I also thought this might be something my daughter would like to read.

This is a book I need to get, along with the men's companion book. They sound terrific and yet I know they will need to be applied.
