God's Promises for Women of Faith by J Countryman is a gift book. It is divided into 12 categories and each category has smaller subheadings. Some of these include God Blesses Women When They..., God Helps Women to Grow By..., Dynamic Women of Faith. Each subheading has scripture passages from the New King James Version listed under it. This is a very simple and straight-forward book, easy to find passages relating to each topic.
From the introduction: "Scripture is full of the promises of God. The problem is we forget! What we need is a reminder, which I trust you'll find in this little book of God's enormous promises."
This book was actually not very interesting for me. I felt that it was just a book that listed a number of pertinent Bible passages under each heading. I think I would prefer to find encouragement and inspiration by actually opening up the Bible.

God's Promises for Women of Faith by J. Countryman Floral Cover is a great book for gift-giving with a presentation page (as well as a gift for yourself). It has a nice decorative hardcover with pink ribbon trim and blue font. There are twelve topics with many sub topics including "Seeking Him", "Growing in Him", "Obeying Him", as well as topics in adversity, rest, trust, joy and much more. 196 pages of promises for yourself or someone you love.
After receiving this beautifully made God's Promises for Women of Faith book I couldn't wait to open it up. I was pleasantly surprised at the way the authors have put this book together. The most favorable concept in this book is the fully loaded pages with nothing but scripture. There is a topic for everything in life; the great thing in this book is the accessibility. Including, being able to finding the perfect promises of God that meet my needs at that particular moment. Most of the time it takes me longer to find all the scriptures to meet a certain topic; I am trying to study. With this book it gives you an index in the beginning; from there it's simple and quick. I am also able to fit this in my purse and carry to school and work with me. It comes in handy when I have free time sitting in my car.
I enjoyed reading these "tributes" to such faithful women. Following this section are lined pages for the reader to enter notes about "Verses That Are Special To Me." The book ends with a final section entitled "God's Plan of Salvation" - two pages of life saving, life altering scriptures that outline the plan to eternal life with God.
Also, I would recommend giving this as a gift to any women of God, or any women searching for the truth!

'God's Promises For Women of Faith' has a beautiful cover and a lovely ribbon on the side. This book is perfect for your daily Bible reading! These Scriptures will prove to help women walk in His Word, comfort them, encourage and so much more! There's a section for 'Dynamic Women of Faith' which includes: Mary (Mother of Jesus), Elizabeth (Mother of John the Baptist), Sarah (Wife of Abraham, Hannah (Mother of Samuel), Ruth (Great Grandmother of David) and Lydia (Seller of Purple). I was imo surprised to see Lydia there and not Esther. To me, Esther definitely should've been listed as a 'Dynamic Woman of Faith'. There's a section at the end of the book where you can write down the verses that are special to you and God's Plan of Salvation is there as well. This book is small enough to put in your handbag and off you go. Great for on the go and when things come up, you can just pull it right out and read the Scriptures that pertain to your situation. So, overall this book is handy and I love it! As a member of Thomas Nelson's Book Review Blogger program , I had the opportunity to review this book.
I was pleasantly surprised when I received this book in the mail. I knew it was a "gift book"/devotional and as such thought it would be filed with pleasing pictures, some Biblical scriptures and "fluff" meant to be inspiring. This book is anything but fluff.
The book is compact in size (196 pages), so can be easily slipped into a purse, diaper bag, or desk drawer at work to be read when you feel the need for God's words. The book starts with an introduction from Mary Graham of "Women of Faith." From there, it is broken into different sections and sub-sections (i.e. God's Plan for Women Is to... 1. Worship Him, 2. Obey Him, etc.), with each containing well laid-out, inspiring and uplifting scriptures ~ "Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth." ~ Psalm 96:9
God Delights in Women Who Are...Seeking Him ~ "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." ~ Romans 10:9
God Encourages Each Woman To...Cherish Being A Friend ~ "A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity." ~ Proverbs 17:7
Each section contains wonderful and diverse scriptures from the Bible that are so fitting for not only women but anyone as they take their daily walks with God. The book can be used as daily Bible reading or a quick reference when in need of God's promises for us. There is a section toward the end of the book entitled "Dynamic Women of Faith" and includes scriptures about such six wonderful women as Mary - Mother of Jesus, Elizabeth - Mother of John the Baptist, and Sarah - Wife of Abraham. I enjoyed reading these "tributes" to such faithful women. Following this section are lined pages for the reader to enter notes about "Verses That Are Special To Me." The book ends with a final section entitled "God's Plan of Salvation" - two pages of life saving, life altering scriptures that outline the plan to eternal life with God.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this little treasure of a book and highly recommend it to everyone.
