We are tempted every single day. Some of us more than others! And some days more than others. It is a constant battle!
I was excited to get my hands on Winning Every Woman’s War by Cathy Messecar and Deanna Kohl. This book is written in a beautiful way. It feels as though I am sitting with girlfriends discussing the everyday temptations and inner battles. The authors are honest and humble and you feel like your girlfriends are confiding in you about their battles. I wanted to pour my heart out as I read the book.
This would be a perfect book for a woman’s group or bible study. The format is brilliant. From the camo cover to the training call outs. You have plenty of places to pour your heart out on the pages. There are questions at the end of each chapter, called Tactical Training, for you to do just that. Learn and grow along with the authors.
Other call outs in the book include “Diary from the Trenches” where you write more about your thoughts. My combat prayer with a simple example prayer. There are Armor of God call outs that include a sword, a shield, and a shoe line. “My dog tag” are creative sentences where you put in your name in a scripture. Example: ” _____Your Name___, let your light shine before others they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven” Matt 5:16.”
I love these extra notes and features that help this be a very personal study book!
