The author's transparent, vulnerable message impacts women in a profound way, showing them that God loves them, imperfect as they are. They discover how God will transform them so that, whoever they are, they can make a difference in their worlds. Written in a ten-week study format, readers dig into Scripture, memorize it, and apply it to their lives, individually or in groups. The revised and enlarged leader's guide makes it even more helpful for small groups.

This is an awesome tool to use with your bible. I have so enjoyed this study. Its a keeper to all Godly ladies seeking to do God's will in being a vessel for Him. Pray that God continue to use Donna to share His word to us...

I was physically, emotionally, and spiritually bankrupt when I picked this book up after it sat on my bookshelf for well over a year. I was suicidal and ready to end it all. I started reading this book because I had nothing else to lose and I thank God every day that I did. I've been reading this book now for three weeks....I'm doing it in five weeks versus ten weeks....and am amazed by how God can use me..a broken a vessel....I recommend this book to anyone out there who is on the brink of giving up.
