    A Book for Every Woman

    I loved this book! It's a fast read, but one that you'll want to come back to over and over again. Dannah's writing is very real. She's taken a simple verse and applied it to all of us in a fresh, new way.

    Life-changing!

    This book clashes with cultural norms of busyness, selfishness and shallow hello's. Dannah sets the pace by being vulnerable and sharing Biblical wisdom that inspires the reader to prioritize authentic relationships with other women in the Church. She encourages us to pursue the mission that God has planned for us. Dannah's writing is effortless and her wisdom is attractive. Even though I wanted to read right through the book, taking the time to write out the answer to each 'It's Your Turn' section became a way for me to discover why God was having me read the book! He showed me a part of my life mission and revealed qualities in me - that I had overlooked - that He wants to use for His glory. This book applies to all Christian women, regardless of age, denomination, and background. It's an effective personal experience and would be a powerful group book study. I'm deeply grateful to Dannah for writing this book. You will be, too.

    You've GOT to read this book!

    Tho I am only partly finished with this book, I felt I needed to share what the Lord is doing in me. Since the first moment I picked up this book (after getting past the thought of 'oh great another book I really don't want to read' especially after realizing it involved journaling as well)God had my heart in a much deeper, more open, vulnerable way, which has brought tremendous healing to my heart and my life. It is so amazing how free you can feel by opening yourself up to the Lord and allowing yourself to be just who He created you to be. If you are feeling heavy-burdened, depressed, weighted down this is a book you MUST read and journal thru! Praise God for Dannah's willingness to follow after the Lord in writing this book!

    The Secret of the Lord

    Dannah courageously challenges every woman to honestly examine their heart while she reveals Biblical truths that bring hope and passion back into their life, setting the shame free that holds them hostage. Because of Dannah's willingness to be so open with her own life, she has encouraged me through her book, 'The Secret of the Lord' to step out in faith and dare to unmask the real woman God desires me to be.
