Fearlessly Feminine

Woman putting boots on

I want to recommend a book written by a pastor’s wife that I think you will enjoy. The book is Fearlessly Feminine by Jani Ortlund. The subtitle is, “Boldly Living God’s Plan for Womanhood.”

Many times we are fearful of things and we allow them to control what we do. I believe, we as pastors’ wives, can all relate to that and this book will be a blessing to you. The book can also be used for a group study.

Remember “God has not given us a spirit of fear.” II Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)

 Here is a brief summary of the book:

Fear is a complex emotion—able to fuel you to strive for greater success, or freeze you in anxious introspection. Jani Ortlund marks the trailhead to freedom from fear’s control by leading you to greater understanding of God’s design for you as a woman. Discover God’s call to freedom from these common sources of fear:

  • Fear of the restraints of biblical femininity
  • Fear of vulnerability in a godly marriage
  • Fear that following God means unfulfilled dreams
  • Fear of sacrifice in building a Christ-centered home

Questions for personal or group reflection invite honest discussion of such sensitive subjects as submission and materialism, feminism and beauty, mother-hood  and marriage—and help you boldly pursue God’s direction for your life.

I pray this book will be a great resource for you personally and possibly as a group study with other women.
