I liked the first section mostly. The first section is powerful in becoming a lady in waiting. I believe that some of the stories at the end of the book could have been blended in within the first section and some stories left me confused about its relevance to the topic.
Lady In Waiting is truely a blessing to me. It's views, the points it makes, the scripture it dives into; it's wonderful. I haven't even finished the book yet, but I would already recommend it to ANY lady in waiting. It is very easy to read, is divided into chapters, and has organized its points and thoughts very efficiently. Be sure to have a notebook ready to jot down notes, bible verses, and your thoughts and prayers. My notebook is quickly filling. In my book you will find lots of underlined passages, key quotations, and scripture that spoke to me. I would definitely, definitely recommend Lady In Waiting every time.
This is a book that has a great impact on the reader. I have seen it over and over again. I would highly recommend this book! Several young woman I know are reading it and having great insightful revelations about the way they think, act and make decisions. I haven't seen a book have this much influence for change for young woman in quite some time. I bought this as a gift and will continue to give to many others knowing it will be a blessing. It is nice to spend money on something that will help the person bear great fruit in their own personal life.
The unique feature of this newly revised edition of "Lady in Waiting" is the focus on finding fulfillment for the longing of the heart through a relationship with Jesus and developing the ten qualities of a godly woman found in the book of Ruth. Jackie Kendall and Debby Jones collaborate in an intricate balance of instruction, interactive study, devotional inspiration, and motivational story illustrations. The book is divided into four sections.
Part one is made up of ten chapters. Each chapter includes Biblical instruction, practical illustrations, and profound questions for reflection. The reader is directed to take action steps or guidelines for personal application and assimilation. Part two provides an interactive study guide for group or individual use, taking the reader to a deeper level of understanding and application. Part three contains daily devotional thoughts gleaned from the classical writings of well know women including: Madame Jeanne Guyon, Mother Teresa, Susanna Wesley, Hanna Whitall Smith, and many others.
Part four includes a wonderful compilation of seventy-seven poignant, unforgettable short stories from real life. Each story is designed to stimulate reflection and personal application.
"Lady in Waiting" is relevant for women in all walks of life. It is a guide and a guard for the single woman, a marriage support for the married woman, and a comfort for the widowed or divorced woman. Encouraging, motivating, and inspirational - Highly recommended.
