Product Description

In "Ruby Slippers" Jonalyn Fincher makes the point that women can be both fully human and fully feminine. She asks the question "What exactly did Jesus redeem when he redeemed women?" Fincher points out that femininity runs deeper than aprons, frills, or romance. It begins with feminine souls who are living cameos of the triune God. Follow her as she goes step by step through what it means to be a woman and cultivate your soul. On this journey the roles you play will melt away into something like Dorothy's ruby slippers - the souls to walk with freedom and femininity.

Publisher's Description

Jonalyn Fincher wants to show that women can be both fully human and fully feminine. Traditionally, femininity has been a role women play, a role defined by culture and simplistic sermons. The author encourages women to look at the feminine roles or boxes that pinch their souls: mother, fashion devotee, working wife, intellectual. Does God treat femininity as a role, a judgement, or a gift? And when Jesus redeemed women, what was it exactly that he redeemed? Even after Eden, Fincher points out, God planned to redeem both men and women. But for centuries, women have been taught to devalue the very aspects of their souls that are unique and irreplaceable. Femininity itself runs deeper than aprons, frills, or romance. It begins with feminine souls who are living cameos of the triune God. In Ruby Slippers, Fincher takes a fresh, direct look at the challenges she faced on her search for the feminine soul. She goes step by step through what it means to be a woman and how to cultivate her soul, choosing not to shy away from psychology, theology or personal transparency. In her journey she discovers an understanding of femininity that is timeless and groundbreaking. The roles melt away into something like Dorothy’s ruby slippers, something women have always had—the souls to walk today with freedom and femininity.
