The Resolution for Women

We are reading The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer in my ladies Bible Study this session.  I have only read the first two sections, but I can already say that I HIGHLY recommend any lady to read this book.

This is my 2nd Bible study at my church and I feel so blessed to be able to go to these sessions and be with these wonderful ladies.  My 1st study was Here and Now, There and Then a study on Revelation by Beth Moore and it was simply amazing.

It has been so good for me to go to Bible Study and be able to meet so many more people at church.

Being in this Bible study class so far, has been so good for me.  I have met new ladies(to me) and have been able to share and listen to them share what is on their hearts about our study.  

The first parts that we have discussed have talked about being content with where you are in your life-at this very moment, and being feminine in the way that God intended us to be.  
It is just good for my heart to hear other ladies struggling with the same things that I do.  
I know that I am not alone in trying to rush things and get to the next thing.  
I am not alone in hurrying up bedtime so I can enjoy a few moments of uninterrupted "me"time.  
But, along with that, I've learned that I need to focus on being more "present" and "in the moment."  We need to be content with who are children, husbands, friends and family are right at this moment in time.  

"Right now--whether you realize it or not--you're choosing to treat people a certain way, to stay committed to certain activities, to live a certain life, to be a certain kind of person, to not be a certain kind of person. Either way, you've made a decision. A spoken(or unspoken) declaration.  A defining banner hangs over your life, written in the ink of your own choices. Others can read it, even if you can't. You're already a woman of resolutions." -The Resolution for Women

I can't wait to find out what the rest of the Bible Study has in store for me!


  1. That sounds really interesting and I would love to hear what you think of it when you are done. I think women in particular have a difficult time today, almost like we have to fit into a certain role but find that role at odds with other aspects of our lives. I once read an interview of a famous foreign actress who said that modern women have lost their identity and I thought there was a certain wisdom in her words.

    1. I cannot agree more. I will write more about the book as we study it further!


I always love hearing from you!
