Editorial Reviews

"Julie Gillies has a written a book every woman needs! My heart was fed with encouragement from start to finish. Prayers for a Woman's Soul is the perfect blend of personal stories, powerful prayers, and topic-specific Scriptures to reflect on, helping us draw strength from the Father so we can live from the fullness of all He has for us as women, wives, moms, and friends. I'm going to use it as my personal devotion book this year and get a copy for several friends!"
?Renee Swope, bestselling author of A Confident Heart, Proverbs 31 Ministries radio co-host and speaker

"For years I have diligently prayed for my husband and my children. Somehow, I just missed praying prayers for me! Prayers for a Woman's Soul is my answer to prayer?daily direction in praying for myself so I can become the woman God has created me to be!"
?Lynn Cowell, Proverbs 31 speaker and author of His Revolutionary Love and Devotions for a Revolutionary Year

"As a busy wife, mother, volunteer, and employee, I know in my head the importance of praying for myself. But most days, I'm at the bottom of my prayer list, unless of course there's a problem. But Julie Gillies has inspired me to prioritize praying for myself every day, and in Prayers for a Woman's Soul she's made it so easy to do! It's biblical, it's inspiring, and it's practical! It's an invitation to the Source of all peace and joy. I highly recommend this book for any woman needing some inner refreshment."
?Glynnis Whitwer, Proverbs 31 Ministries, Editor of P31 Woman and author of I Used to Be So Organized

"Prayers for a Woman's Soul is like a soothing spa for the harried woman's heart. Julie Gillies bares her own heart in this easy-to-read but meaningful book. Filled with practical Scripture and pointed prayers, each chapter provides refreshment, wisdom, and encouragement for women to reconnect with the Life-Giver so that we're better equipped to give life to others."
?Jody Hedlund, bestselling author of The Preacher's Bride

"With the honesty of a dear friend, Julie Gillies lovingly shares heart stories, painstakingly revealing every woman's deepest need: learning to pray for herself. With 52 topics covering issues from peace to perseverance, Julie invites us to live openly before God, admitting our shortcomings and trusting Him to transform our lives through an intimate prayer relationship."
?Kelly Hancock, founder of FaithfulProvisions.com and author of Saving Savvy: Smart and Easy Ways to Cut Your Spending in Half and Raise Your Standard of Living?and Giving!

"Prayers for a Woman's Soul is an inspiring, rejuvenating devotional that teaches women not only how to pray for themselves, but how to allow the power of God to speak to their hearts through prayer. Each week, whether using this guide in a group or individually, Julie takes us through prayer topics such as praying for our minds, countenance, and even the distractions that we women face. This book brought clarity to areas in my life that I needed to work on and pray through. You'll find this journey of prayer refreshing to the soul."
?Sandy Coughlin, author of The Reluctant Entertainer

"This book is such a reminder that God loves me. Just as He desires for me to lift others in prayer, He desires for me to communicate to Him about myself, too. So often, we spend so much time praying for others that we neglect ourselves. But really, if we didn't neglect ourselves, we would have such a healthier impact on those around us. God has specific things He wants to say to us that are about us. This book helps open the door to those conversations."

    I can not say enough! "Prayers for a Woman's Soul" is

    I can not say enough! "Prayers for a Woman's Soul" is a refreshing drink for the parched. We, as women, don't often take the time to pray for ourselves. Even if we have a desire to do so, we don't seem to know where to start. Julie Gillies gives us practical and insightful devotions to prompt us to meaningful prayer. In fact, she covered topics I would have never thought of on my own. The daily readings are short and conscise, just what we busy women need. I love the way Julie's words both encourage and challenge me to go deeper with Christ. I highly recommend this book to every women who is seeking after a more intimate relationship with Him.

    WOULD GIVE THIS 10 STARS IF I COULD - LOVE THIS!!

    I wasn't exactly prepared for this book. I wanted it to be deep, meaningful, personal, and encouraging. It is. But it is so much more. Julie K. Gillies writes from the heart. She shares personal experiences from her own life that nearly all women can relate to as well as sharing how the Lord patiently taught her and carried her through each situation she faced. As I read this wonderful little book I discovered areas in my life that I had long neglected, parts of my soul that needed refreshing, healing, and prayer. That is exactly what this book is about. The short stories that open each chapter are relatable and interesting, coming straight from the author's own life. Her words are fresh, laced with light-hearted humor and are written in a way that made me feel as though she was talking to me face to face and pouring into me the truths God has imparted to her over the years. The end of each chapter provides the reader with points to reflect on, a prayer and powerful scripture verses to strengthen the spirit. I would love to give a copy to all the precious women in my life, I know they'd be as delighted with it as I am.
