    Powerful tool to help women protect their families

    Spiritual Warfare for Women by Leighann McCoy is a powerful tool for women looking to help women win the battle against Satan for their home, family, and friends. McCoy wants to empower readers to recognize the tools Satan uses to attack their lives, but she warns them at the outset, reading this book is a call to battle for the devil. Shortly after she started writing the book McCoy was diagnosed with cancer, her church faced $250,000 in flood damage, and her eighteen-year-old daughter moved in with her boyfriend, turning her back on college scholarships and her family. This isn't a book to be picked up without heavily weighing the possible consequences. Readers who decide to carry on will find a fascinating look at McCoy's personal struggles with spiritual warfare and how she has used the mistakes of her past to teach others. McCoy is a humble and open writer who engages readers through her honesty and genuine love for them. She breaks down the most common areas of attack: marriage, children, friendships, health, and church. I've found myself considering and using several of McCoy's points while reading this book and in the days after. I've recommended it to several people as well for it's down to earth approach and essential information.

    Winning the Battle for Home, Family, Friends, and Yourself

    There are many books available on the market about spiritual warfare. I found Leighann McCoy's book, Spiritual Warfare for Women, to be the best I've read and easy to relate to. It's specific, with a cohesive format that brings continuity to the subject of spiritual warfare.

    Leighann's transparency, shown through her own personal stories, helps to bring her points across with clarity. Her life is living proof that God is greater than the enemy.

    Her book is Biblically sound, using Scripture to back up her precepts. Each chapter has personal questions to apply to your own life, a prayer that specifically relates to what you have just learned, and a challenge to memorize God's Word to use in your own spiritual battles.

    She covers four specific parts:

    The Most Powerful Weapon of All-The Love of God (Love's completed work)
    The Enemy Exposed (Warfare is real; Who the enemy is and what he does)
    The Targets in Our Lives (My Marriage, Children, Other Women, Church)
    Victory is Mine (Who I am in Christ; Defeating the enemy; Nothing to fear)

    Leighann's book will help you learn to protect your family, friends, relationships, and yourself during spiritual warfare. "The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Christ came that we might have life, and that more abundantly," John 10:10. This book will help you separate the enemy's subtle lies from the truth of God's Word for your life.

    Spiritual Warfare for Women is a book that every woman needs on her bookshelf for study and encouragement. Great to use for a Bible study!

    This book was provided by Jim Hart of Bethany House in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

    Spiritual warfare is real, but through Christ we have the victory!

    With a subtitle like "Winning the Battle for Your Home, Family, and Friends", I was very excited about diving into this book. Spiritual Warfare for Women is split in to four parts. The first part is about the Love of God - the most powerful weapon of all. Many people approach this subject with fear, but Leighann McCoy reminds us that "the best place to anchor your understanding of spiritual warfare is in the firm foundation of God's constant love" (pg. 22). {Amen!} In Part 2 Mrs. McCoy exposes the enemy as she explains who he is and what he does. Spiritual warfare is real. Satan is a liar, and he is especially wanting you to be offended at anyone and with anything. However, again she points back to Christ. "Satan is a formidable foe; that is certain. But he's defeated as well. And you and I have power and authority to whip him every time. Be reminded of this truth" (pg. 98). Part 3 expands on what areas of our lives are targets for attack. The chapters focus on our marriage, children, friendships, health, and church. The finally section encourages the reader with "Victory is Mine." Mrs. McCoy shares the Truth about who we are in Christ, how to defeat out enemy, and why we are to fear not. Any woman who wants to understand this subject of spiritual warfare and the victory we have Christ needs to read Spiritual Warfare for Women. It would also be an excellent resource for group study. I appreciated the way the readers are pointed back to God's Word throughout the book. At the end of each chapter, Leighann McCoy provides a prayer and verses to memorize. This is a great way to help the reader apply the truths they are learning. Knowledge and application of the Truth - that's what I need! Disclosure: I received the book free from Bethany House Book Reviewers' program. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Highly recommend!

    We live in a fallen world and our days are filled with spiritual warfare. Few of us are truly ready for the battle. Not many of us even want to venture to understand our true enemy in this world.
    I appreciate, very much, the "Scriptural foundations and truths" that Leighann has shared in her book to help us understand and prepare ourselves daily for the battle. Relationships and other things are crumbling all around us daily. Yet, few of us stop to realize that we are women who need to stay firmly grounded and protected in God's truths and promises daily. It's not a battle we can fight on our own.
    Leighann has done a great job of sharing her heart and personal circumstances, to convey the truths that can and will anchor us in our trenches.
    I hope others will read this book to help them become more informed and ready for the battle. It's out there, ready or not!!
