    I'm a wife and first time mother who recently left the workforce to be a stay-at-home mom. This book couldn't have presented itself at a better time in my life. This book touches on points about being a godly wife, the importance of investing in your children, and how God really sees his daughters. Although a lot of the material presented tends to lend itself to wives and moms, there are still a lot of good nuggets that are applicable to single women as well. For me, there were pros and cons of the structure of the book - it's a collection of essays written by different women of God. I like that they were presented in bite size ideas yet still gave me a lot to chew on. However, because it was several different women, the styles were different as well so the book didn't have a consistent flow for me and took me longer to read than I would have liked. All it all, it's packed with a lot of great, biblically sound information about what God originally intended for women.

    I have this on my Kindle, and I started to read it... only to get through the introduction and part of the first essay and realize my heart isn't ready for this. I'm single. I don't have the privilege of exhibiting biblical womanhood through marriage or children. I believe women and men are different, and I believe in biblical womanhood and (I assume) most/all of what is in this book... But right now I can't read another "high calling of wife- and motherhood" thing. I'd love to be a wife and mother. I'm not either, so I need to work on biblical motherhood in a different context. Wish there was more written about that (that didn't include "it's okay; I'm sure you'll be married soon!!").

    Very compelling. Few books have multiple authors but it works well for this read. I was convicted and encouraged which is the hallmark of anything with Nancy Leigh Demoss' s name on it. I recommend it to all women!

    Femininity is something women gain from situation or environment. Femininity is creation from God for a purpose. Women are to develop her femininity and worship God in her feminine character. Hospitality, life-nurturing, gentleness are to be wonderfully displayed for God's glory

    I loved this book, but I take issue with the incomplete nature of the editor's own chapter within the book: her narrative of Mary as a role model is inspiring, but lacking truth. She ignores Mary's Immaculate Conception, the power and greater significance of her "Fiat', and calls her "graciously accepted"(p66) when she is in fact set apart and given a position of greatest honor: Mother of God, mother of us all, and Queen of Heaven and Earth. Everything else within this text was a glass of clear, cool water on a hot day; this essay was rather a clean drink of water left in a hot car: quenching thirst, but not satisfying the need wholly. That same chapter was however fully right when she asked of today's society: "Where are the praying women? Where are the wives, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, and daughters who are carrying these burdens on their knees and crying out to God for mercy and divine intervention?"(p74)Furthermore, in the essay on Titus 2 women, the author reads from a catechism, but through that catechism claims we can only base our faith and teaching on scripture; then what authority does that catechism have? And what purpose does it serve? As a Roman Catholic myself, I am a believer in tradition and scripture as the foundation for a faith authority, but I recognize that Protestant religions do not. So what was this catechism and why have another book just say: Bible only? She raised any good points but her arguments seemed lost or wandering, skipping important steps: especially in the questions of authority.

    Despite my hesitation, I really enjoyed this book!I appreciated the direct, honest writing style of the authors. I get bored easily with most Christian books when I feel like they drag out a point that can be made in fewer pages. It was refreshing to read chapters by different authors...I didn't get bored!Do not judge this book by it's title. It should have been named:So, you are a christian, and you are married...now what?

    Becoming a more Godly woman is a great goal. This book talks about some key areas about godly womanhood that have slipped from today's culture such as our roles as helpers for our husbands, examples of godliness for our daughters and our role in our homes. Many additional resources are mentioned in this book for a deeper dive into "Becoming God's True Woman".

    For the record this was a book for a course I am taking so I am not really attempting to become God's true woman!Would have preferred a 3.5 rating but alas, as we all know, those helpful mid-points are not available to us! Still, not a bad read.

    This is a great read to get a picture of what biblical womanhood looks like. I enjoyed it very much and learned a lot about my role as a helper, and duty to submission, devotion to the home, devotion to mentoring others and being mentored by others, my openness to trials and pruning, my trust in the Lord's timing, etc... Incredibly insightful and important read.

    We are reading this for our ladies' Bible study. The chapters are written by different Christian ladies, including Nancy Leigh DeMoss (who is the editor), Carolyn Mahaney, P. Bunny Wilson, Mary Kassian, and Barbara Hughes. It comes with study questions in the back, very helpful for a group of women to read it and discuss it together. We are doing two chapters per week, in an hour-and-a-half, which is pushing it for having a good discussion. One of the chapters we read today, "Pruned to Bloom," was a huge blessing to the women in our group...one lady was so encouraged by it she said it was the best thing she had ever read, next to her Bible, and she's in her early 70s! A great help for introducing women to understanding the sovereignty of God and the need for obedience to obtain maturity in our Christian life, as well as a strong case for biblical womanhood as opposed to egalitarianism.Edit: Years later, my views on the topic of "biblical womanhood" have changed. I would like to revisit this in the future, but I doubt I would now recommend this book.
