Product Description

Feeling chronically overwhelmed? Discover the power of cross-generational friendships! Exploring an encouraging vision from Titus 2, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth reveals that all women are strengthened when young moms and singles widen their peer groups to include those who've "been there" and when older "veterans" shed their protective cocoons and invest in the next generation.

To get the most out of this book, invite a group of women - older and younger - to read through it together and discuss the questions found at the end of each chapter. You can find additional resources at adornedbook.com.

    Wonderful Book about mentoring

    Titus 2 is a model for all women, young and old, to live life side by side in a mentoring relationship meant to strengthen our Christian walk. Older women invest themselves in training younger women to be godly women, wives and mothers while the younger women submit themselves to the teaching of those who have walked the path before them. What a blessing women are to our families and our churches when they follow the path God has laid out for them.

    Pauls instructions in Titus 2 provides guidelines that will help us as women to experience the kind of community and influence God designed.

    In many ways, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author of Adorned, a book about Titus 2, has exemplified the Titus 2 model for all women. She has sat up under some wonderful Christian women like Vonette Bright, wife of Bill Bright. She has mentored women of all ages through her radio and online ministry, Revive Our Hearts, for many years. Her wisdom and love for God has radiated through the airwaves and through her books.

    If you are a seasoned woman of God, youve probably already heard about the Titus 2 woman and how important it is to seek the wisdom of other women as well as provide godly guidance to those who are just beginning their Christian walk.

    Wolgemuth only recently married for the first time at age 58. It was only at this time, after experiencing marriage herself, could she write a book as profound as Adorned. She uses examples from her recent marriage to show how important it is to have someone with some marital wisdom to guide you in the right path. Marriage is hard and while there are times we may all want to throw in the towel, older women who have withstood the trials and joys of marriage can offer wisdom to younger women willing to listen to their advice.

    The book divides Titus 2 into three parts and each chapter ends with a Making It Personal section for both older women and younger women. Adorned is perfect for a small group study combining both groups of women who can advise and help each other.

    Adorned by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth is easily the best book in my reading selections recently. I often use sticky notes to highlight thought-provoking sections of a book and the amount of sticky notes is usually indicative of a good read. Adorned is no exception! My copy of Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuths latest book are laden with sticky notes! She is an extremely talented writer, gifted with the ability to write cleanly, concisely, and honestly.

    However, not only is the book well-written and well-edited, the subject of intergenerational women mentoring one another is highly needed and sorely absent in many churches and Christian communities. Nancy leads the reader in a solid study of Scripture, specifically Titus 2: 1-5, 10. I particularly appreciated Nancys thoughts on alcohol and submission; although some readers might not agree with her position, the sections provides thought-provoking comments in a non-threatening way.

    I am challenged to reread Adorned with another woman or several other women, and to look for the mentoring relationship that can help me to grow to become a Titus 2 woman. I highly recommend Adorned to other readers, as well!

    Titus 2's Beautiful Message of Truth and Wisdom

    Nancy Leigh DeMoss, now Wolgemuth, has written a gem of a book, a much-needed message for our culture, and a treasure trove of wisdom. And that book is Adorned" Living Our the Beauty of the Gospel Together. This book focuses on one of the most controversial passages of Scripture, and one of my personal favorites, Titus 2.

    Written with grace and love, this book is chock full of truth and wisdom. Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth is a wise. knowledgeable, humble teacher and instructor. She is a Titus 2 woman, and I'm so happy and thankful that she has written this book. Our culture and the Church are desperate for the words and beautiful message it holds.

    This is a long, big, thick book. One that is not meant to be rushed through or read in a flash. It is better to read a bit, let the words and message of truth sink in, and then read a bit more. This book is meant to last a bit.

    As I mentioned, Titus 2 is a favorite passage of mine. I love how clearly and beautifully it displays the plan, design, and purpose of womanhood, according to God's Word and according to how He meant for it to be. Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth walks through the second chapter in thorough detail, carefully explaining each concept, each verse and what it teaches and what is all means and how to live it out. Even in the 21st century.

    In the true spirit of Titus 2, the idea of older women mentoring and teaching the younger women was expressed throughout the book. Discussion questions geared at both older and younger women were included in the back of each chapter, making it the perfect book to read in a mentoring relationship. (Summer reading idea?!?!)

    Adorned is heavily covered in Scripture, deeply rooted in Truth, and written with grace. You will come away encouraged, inspired, convicted, challenged, wiser and with a strong desire to actually live out this whole Titus 2 thing in real life.

    I highly recommend Adorned, and look forward to referring back to it often in the future myself. It is one that will not be forgotten, and its legacy will live on for many years to come.

    Saying I do at any age carries a freight of challenges and adjustments along with the joy, but a 57-year-old newlywed, married for the first time, brings a unique perspective to marriage. Using the parable of her wedding preparations, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth begins Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together with a challenge to adorn the truth of the Gospel in our manner of living so that the beauty of God is put on display. Since this is best accomplished in the context of relationship, Nancy turns to the truth of Titus 2: 1-10 with its wise and wonderful game plan: the sound doctrine and skillful living that are indispensable to godliness are best learned woman to woman, older to younger, day to day, life to life.

    Women of all ages and stages of life stand to benefit when they dive into Scriptural truth and find that belief affects behavior, for the truth is that the kindness and self-control called for in Titus 2 flow out of a changed life. The sound doctrine Paul writes about in verse 1 is the mooring for good choices that result in the purity, composure, and sound relationships that characterize Titus 2 Christians, both male and female. In the process, our ultimate purpose to make much of God is fulfilled and the beauty of Christ is put on display.

    Older women are uniquely equipped and qualified to take younger women by the hand and explore the riches of a reverent life. The energy and enthusiasm of younger women motivates older women to live into their calling and their experience in practical ways.

    To be reverent means living with the constant, conscious awareness that we are in the presence of an awesome, holy God.

    A Woman Under Control

    Appearance, attitude, and life style work together to model the fruit of a genuine relationship with God. A life characterized by freedom from harmful speech and from the many forms of slavery (to food, exercise, shopping, television, work, prescription meds, to name just a few possible masters) demonstrates the overcoming power of the Spirit of God. The outcome is what Nancy refers to as a Sophron State of Mind (pronounced so-phrone). Derived from the Greek words soos, meaning sound and phren, meaning mind, it comes together to convey self-control, discretion, or good sense. Looking at life through my sophron lens, I am encouraged to ask myself probing questions:

    The way just I talked to that person was it sophron?

    The way I ate (or exercised or not?), or managed my time today was it sophron?

    Statistics that caught me by surprise here in my church-lady bubble indicate that 1 in 6 women regularly view pornography and 80% will eventually follow up virtual activity with face-to-face encounters. In a culture that fosters the exact opposite, purity and discretion require vigilance and accountability.

    A Woman Under Her Roof

    It goes without saying that it is so much easier to be pleasant and accommodating with people on the fringes of our lives. Its those who are closest to us that receive (and endure) the fruit of our true character. Titus 2 calls women to genuine relationships and a love for home that puts those all-important relationships on the front burner. Together, we can train our hearts to cherish our husbands and to embrace the gift of motherhood. Anticipating objections to the counter-cultural notion of biblical submission, Nancy defines it by what it is NOT:

    1. A wifes submission is not to men in general.

    2. Submission does not mean a wife is inferior to her husband.

    3. Submission doesnt subject a wife to a life of forced compliance.

    4. Submission doesnt amount to slavish, groveling subservience.

    5. Submission doesnt minimize a wife into mindlessness.

    6. Submission doesnt mean husbands are always right.

    7. Submission never requires a wife to follow her husband into sin.

    8. Finally, a wifes submission never gives license to her husband to abuse her.

    Studying I Peter 3 on submission with my Sunday School class, I read huge swaths of this chapter out loud to my class simply because it is so clear and grace-oriented.

    Because everyone is on a learning curve, it is clear that older women will teach from what they have already learned, but we will also teach out of our failures, pointing to the days (or years) that the locust has eaten as proof that God is graciously in the business of redeeming failure and loss. Younger women play a necessary role in the adorning of the Gospel, for they bring energy and fresh perspective to the table, motivating older women to live up to their knowledge and always mindful that everyone can be an older woman to someone.

    Titus 2 calls believers to a life of practicing a costly kindness.

    It lays the groundwork for partnership together in Truth that makes the love of God visible and the truth of the Gospel believable because it is being communicated by lives that are becoming more beautiful with every year.

    Great book! Practical Biblical teaching. Inspiring!

    A great book bringing back Biblical truths and insights on the value of relationships with older and younger women. As the Bible says for the older women to train the younger women and that is something that really doesn't happen much at all anymore, yet it so valuable. We need each other. We need that type of relationship in our lives.

    Nancy explores areas pertinent to women and really challenges the reader to go deeper in God. She also challenges the reader to be a spiritual mom to someone else. Someone who sets a Godly example - she invites the reader to examine her life, motives etc. Delving into dealing with things such as slander/gossip, identifying areas of indulgence or excess or other unhealthy happens, living with self control and with sound thinking, living in purity and so on.

    I found it interesting the section based around the Greek word 'Sophron', meaning 'the exercise of that self-restraint that governs all passions and desires, enabling the believer to be conformed to the mind of Christ'. Nancy speaks about how 'A sensible, sound, self-controlled mindset will result in a sensible, sound, self controlled behavior' p164, She asks the reader if their words, actions, and reactions are excessive, compulsive or unstable? In particular, I love the charts on p170 and 171 comparing a 'non-sophron woman' with a 'so-horn woman' in areas of mindset and attitudes, emotions, tongue and behavior. Very inspiring!

    This book is really well put together. It is strongly based on scripture thoughout. I appreciate how it is organized and it is easy to follow. It is very refreshing Biblical teaching and I would highly recommend it. I'm really glad I read it!

    Please note I was sent a copy of this book for purposes of review however the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
