Stephanie Van Gorden4 Stars Out Of 5September 6, 2007Stephanie Van GordenMrs. Peace is one author whose books I will get on her name alone; I know they are always sure to be full not just of biblical truth, but of the Bible itself. In fact, it is a rare page that does not at least allude clearly to a passage of Scripture, if it doesnt quote one outright. This particular offering is a treatment of biblical solutions for problems women face, including gossip, hurt feelings, vanity, legalism, feminism, and trials. She handles each topic beautifully, with all the compassion and boldness she has become known for.My favorite statement from the book is from the chapter on the feminist influence (called, appropriately, But What If I *Like* To Have My Ears Tickled?."The only way we will not be taken captive by the feminist beliefs is through the power of the Holy Spirit and Gods grace enabling us to study and believe and embrace what God has told us in His Word. What God has told us in His Word is that women are not victims. We are creatures created in Gods image for the purpose of proclaiming His excellencies (1 Peter 2:9). God, not man, determined how best and in what role women were to give Him glory. It is a joy and privilege to serve God, but we can do it rightly only on His terms." (p. 143)Mrs. Peace has embraced her God-given role as Biblical counselor and teacher of women, and shows each one of us that God has answers for the problems we all face. She reminds us that we will only experience the freedom God wishes to be ours when we face those problems on Gods terms, repent, and follow through with obedience.
