Sometimes all it takes is a cup of tea and a sympathetic ear to soothe a woman's pain. Other times you need to do more. What a woman in pain needs is a loving shepherd. Why a shepherd? Because a shepherd responds with compassion and understanding. Bev Hislop believes that an effective women's ministry should involve women who, under the authority of their church's leadership, are shepherds at heart. A shepherd skillfully dispenses pastoral care that is timely and appropriate. Out of her years of experience ministering to hurting women, Bev offers this book in the hope that, by raising up shepherds equipped to address the issues of a woman's heart, ministries to women will become more relevant and more vital than ever before.

Beverly White Hislop has written Shepherding a Woman's Heart to challenge pastors to infuse to women in their churches with the same spirit that moves them to care for their flock. This amazing resource provides substantial guidance on how to properly equip healthy women to come forward and nurture hurting women.
