Get ready to experience the adventurous spiritual life God has for you
When Debbie Alsdorf speaks to Christian women, she has a message for them: "Go wild." And she means it - but she's talking about a different kind of wild living than the image we're most familiar with.
"This new wild is about taking our lives back," she says. "It's about becoming women who dare to live differently - wild in surrender, wild in devotion, wild in service, and wild in following what God calls us to do."
She encourages women to embrace the adventure God has for them, and watch their faith flourish like never before. She looks at how women can be risk-takers for Christ, stand firm in crises, confront fear with truth, dare to live by a different standard and find courage to follow a new life path.
Alsdorf explains this call to becoming wild: "'Wild' stands for 'women in lifelong development.'" While this might sound intimidating and out-of-reach to some women, she points out that it is a process. "The key is understanding that it's a lifelong development. There are no overnight spiritual success stories. We are on a journey with God: Each day the pages of life are turned, and line by line our story unfolds. It is a process."
With passion and deep, Scriptural insights, Alsdorf - an exciting conference speaker, women's ministry leader and Bible teacher - helps women live transformed lives with untames faith and courageous obedience to God's leading. Reflection questions are included, making this book an ideal resource for personal study or small-group use.
Not bad wild - good wild, with a new zest for life, for Jesus, and for his thrilling, bold, and creative plans for you. Join Debbie Alsdorf as she coaches you into the exhilarating process of developing as a woman of God. She'll show you how to break free from old expectations and boring patterns and find the WILD (Women in Lifelong Development) way of life.
Travel this untamed new terrain, and you'll deepen your faith, enrich your sense of purpose, and lift your sagging spirits when life gets hard. Alsdorf includes reflection questions at the end of each chapter and an expanded study section at the end of the book, so you can explore the wild alone or in a small group.
So grab your cheetah-print gear and start living the WILD life God has imagined for you - a life bigger and grander than you ever thought possible.
