As wives, mothers, and caretakers, women face a unique set of challenges. Have you found yourself struggling with not feeling “good enough?” Has pressure of trying to do the “right thing” ever left you feeling overwhelmed and discouraged? Daughter, Where’s Your Crown?will help you meet these challenges head-on.
This study is a reminder to women that God provides His Word to be used for guidance in daily living, and that He created you not to just survive, but to thrive. It offers suggested Bible readings, influential examples of women who kept their eyes on God even in problem-filled times, and thought-provoking questions to lead you into a meaningful examination of your own life and relationship with God.
Study author Kathy Farley walks you through how loving God and being obedient to His Word will naturally produce in you the attributes of a virtuous woman as described in Proverbs 31. Kathy uses the life of Ruth as a biblical example and shares insights from King Lemuel’s mother in Proverbs 31 and the book of Ruth to encourage and inspire you to seek the One who is making you into the woman He created you to be.
This is a book that I personally think every woman, be you young or old, needs to go through at least once. It takes you in depth through the life of Ruth, and the Proverbs 31 woman, and teaches you to get the most out of the Scriptures.
The emphasis on this isn’t the same as most authors when they are writing on the Proverbs 31 woman, that of the quintessential woman. It focuses on the attributes of the lives of Ruth and the P31 that lead you to Christ. The author asks what virtue they are displaying that exemplifies Christ, and how can we emulate them?
The format of the book, with questions throughout, and not just at the end of the section, was nice and I found it easy to work with. I enjoyed the study, although I must confess I read through it first, and have gone back to do the study part slowly, so I can take my time and learn the most from it.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I would heartily recommend it for all ladies. I give the book four stars out of five.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to enjoy the book, just to provide my honest opinion*
I am a 23 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.
