~ My Review ~

On what are you basing your confidence ? Are you in turmoil over being in ministry ?  Do your women of your church need a boost to get them in the mindset to serve and be confident about it.  Remember , God chooses and uses Reluctant Leaders ~ This is a reassuring fact !   I like how Jodi leads us in lessons that bring us to a point of understanding who we are , what God wants us to be and be like.  I think its like my DH Mark said to me many years ago ” Lin, its not about YOU, Its about JESUS , in you “

I can share that from personal experience, when being asked to write a column for our blog that year, I felt totally unqualified and so not worthy to share with women , as I surely didn’t have it all together. Nor do I still at times think I am the best woman for the job.  But God knows each issue of my heart and each woman who needs to hear and learn from where I have been.  Jodi’s book is a refreshing look at how and why the Lord can and will use you to minister to others.

It will leave you with the confidence you need in God’s ability to work through you , to bring others to him. Surely he knows  the end before we do and he knows each facet of the story and how its to play out right ?   I highly recommend this book to all women.  Men could learn a lot about how to  help their wives have confidence in themselves and in God’s ability to use them for his glory.  As women  we are to minister to other women and we need to learn those qualities that will draw others to us and help them to see that even if we have not got it all together, God does and when we shine the light of Christ to others, they will see their way to him and his ways.

I recieved a copy of this book from Gospel Publishing House and  for my honest review and have recieved no other compensation for doing so.
