Overview

"Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."--Ephesians 4:3

Friends let you down. A romance turns sour. Children rebel. A church is divided. You feel like you don't measure up. Is there really hope for living at peace?

Yes! Peacemaking Women offers a meaningful, lasting message to lead you out of conflict and into a state of peace where you can live as a representative of Christ to other women as well as to unbelievers. With personal stories and advice that is firmly rooted in Scripture, the authors guide you to peace with God, peaceful relationships with others, and genuine peace within.

"This book tells the truth. The authors know the struggles of women, and they offer hope rooted in God's Word to transform conflict into grace in lives, families, churches, and communities."--Charles Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship

"If I could put one book in the hands of every Christian woman, in addition to the Bible, it would be this one. It is a delight to read and a joy to ponder."--Laura Mae Gardner, former international vice president, Wycliffe Bible Translators International

"This bold and compelling book is a tour de force in offering a pathway for rebuilding broken relationships."--Dan B. Allender, Ph.D., president, Mars Hill Graduate School; author, The Wounded Heart

"Peacemaking Women is not just for women and is not just about peacemaking. This powerfully honest book is about the peace the gospel brings every heart that applies the truths of the gospel to past wounds and present brokenness."--Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary

    Hope for Peace

    Because of the hectic world we all live in, most of us are looking for ways to find Peace. She not only clarified the variety of issues that can cause everyday conflict, she outlined necessary steps to correct it... Our choice. I appreciated the set of questions that followed each chapter, helping to guide you in your individual quest to apply the teachings to yourself. I deeply appreciated her vunerability in sharing her own personal issues. It helped me to understand that I wasn't the only one going through that particular conflict. I have been able to not only use this in my own personal life but to help other women develop these skills. It is a book to be read again and again because of its relevancy. I am reading it for the third time and have discovered new teachings. It is a book worth having in a personal library.

    A Must Read for Everywoman

    I appreciated this book becausee the authors have many years of experience in mediation. From these years in the field, they have put together a solid teaching which provides straigtening out what we believe, what the root of conflict usually is, and how to deal with it and become a peacemaking woman. It is filled with genuine honest sometimes gut-wrenching truth and a whole lot of humor as well. Read it and have peace!
