Every woman who is struggling with God’s call on her life should read Women of Destiny. Every man who questions a woman’s call need only read it with an open heart and mind. A vital contribution to the literature of gender reconciliation, this book is biblically sound and long-awaited.

Women of Destiny is destined to greatly bless the Body of Christ. Of all that has been written or said on the subject, Cindy Jacobs comes closest to expressing God’s true thoughts concerning His own creation called “woman.” Thank you, Cindy, for lovingly and boldly co-laboring with Christ in setting all of God’s creation free.
Founder and President, Christian International Ministries Network, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida
As the Holy Spirit labors over the Church to bring forth reconciliation among believers, our focus has been on racial or denominational issues that separate God’s people. All the while, however, the greatest single issue of unbiblical discrimination has been the widespread posturing against women in ministry. Cindy Jacobs’s voice deserves to be heard—and taken seriously. It just may be another gentle whisper of the Spirit saying, “Open your hearts wider.”

Founding Pastor, The Church On The Way, Van Nuys, California, President, The Kings University, Los Angeles, California

In Women of Destiny, Cindy Jacobs has dared to bring up the “woman” issue, which churches have swept under the carpet for generations. Fine-tuned through careful research, she has written a classic that should be read by men as well as women. It’s liberating for both sexes.
