With empathy and wit, Debbie Alsdorf uses the book of Philippians to encourage women to lean on God, to live one day at a time, to rejoice and not to worry, and to give thanks to God in all circumstances of life. The confidence and peace readers will gain from the perspective presented in this loving book will help them live fully in the moment, in every season of life.
Whether our meantime lasts a day, a month, or a year, Alsdorf reminds us of what is easy to forget under pressure: God is faithful. She is committed to teaching us how to deal effectively with hardships and not allow them to blur our focus, weaken our faith, or rob us of the joy God intended for us. Captivated by Gods promise of a "peace that passes all human comprehension" (Phil. 4:7), even in the midst of our trouble, Alsdorf takes her readers on a step-by-step journey through Paul's epistle to the church in Philippi. As an author, counselor, and director of women's ministries for more than 25 years, Alsdorf comes well qualified to present the book of Philippians clearly, while providing her readers the opportunity to make God's truths their own. The study guide and discussion questions she supplies see to that.
Alsdorf has learned firsthand that a deeper walk with Christ not only strengthens us, but offers us hope when all seems lost. Scripture provides the solid foundation we need when the rug is pulled out, and as we learn to cultivate the discipline of walking in biblical truth we are able to prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead.
One of the strengths of Alsdorf's book is its reminder not to waste our meantime or wish it away too quickly. God's desire is to teach us a thing or two as He walks us through the fire. Alsdorf's balanced use of Scripture, personal illustrations, and practical applications make A Woman Who Trusts God a useful tool for the woman who is looking to do just that.
