Overview

The Sisterhood: How the Power of the Feminine Heart Can Become a Catalyst for Change and Make the World a Better Place by Bobbie Houston

As Co-founder and Senior Pastor of Hillsong Church and founder of The Colour Sisterhood, Bobbie Houston paints a vision of God's plan for women of all ages and backgrounds to flourish, empower each other, and unite to change the world.
We don't need to look far to realize that not all women live with the same opportunities and confidence. THE SISTERHOOD invites women to explore and expand what they believe about God, themselves, and their responsibility to the world around them. Tracing the rise of Hillsong Church's global Sisterhood movement, author Bobbie Houston challenges women to join her in creating a new era of outreach. Readers will learn how to embrace their individual gifts and value as women, growing seeds of change into greater possibilities for women everywhere. If one woman can change her world, then only heaven truly knows what an entire company of women can achieve.

It is not easy task to live each day for Jesus and to walk the path of Christian leadership in this world. Bobbie Houston shares wisdom that she has gleaned from living her life for Christ and encourages others to Stay the Path. Throughout Stay the Path, Houston draws on her forty years of ministry and encourages women (and men) to live a life of example and to remain true to their calling. Each chapter is packed with personal stories and Scripture, along with helpful advice, to live each day with boldness for Christ and to lead by example. Houston writes these words near the end of the book, "Keep your boots in the soil of the fields you are called to, keep your eyes on the dawn light of that approaching day and keep the flame of His love burning bright within." She also shares lyrics from Hillsong's praise songs within several chapters. If you are familiar with those lyrics, you can hear the music in your mind and the message sticks even better. It took me a little bit to get in to Stay The Path. This is my first book by Houston and she packs a lot of information in a small amount of space. Even though this book is 171 pages long, it was not a quick read for me. I had to digest parts of Stay The Path in smaller bites. It would make a great book to read during devotional time and to reflect on Houston's words and how they relate to your own life. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. #partner
