Can you have a strong personality and still be a godly wife? YES!
Do you ever get the idea that being a godly wife means you need to be a mousy doormat? Be as unnoticeable as a doorknob? Or have a personality transplant?
Fierce Women: The Power of a Soft Warrior smashes that idea. No matter whether youre an extrovert or more introverted, Kimberly Wagner believes women are created to be a compelling force.
You may not see yourself as beautifully fierce or even slightly strong, but what if God has placed a powerful fierceness within you, within every woman? Kim admits her fierceness became a source of conflict in her marriage, but the relationship dynamic totally changed when she discovered her fierce strengths could be used to encourage and inspire her husband. She invites you to come alongside as she takes an honest look at a destructive relationship dynamic and casts a vision for the transformation God can bring to troubled marriages.
A True Woman Book; the goal of the True Woman publishing line is to encourage women to:
- Discover, embrace, and delight in God's divine design and mission for their lives
- Reflect the beauty and heart of Jesus Christ to their world
- Intentionally pass the baton of Truth on to the next generation
- Pray earnestly for an outpouring of God's Spirit in their families, churches, nation and world
This book is about the beauty of fierceness, about women who use their strength to honor the Lord by honoring their husbands. "When youre told the hurdle is higher than you can jump, fierceness is what gets your blood going and takes you flying over the top. Its the passion that motivates you to leave the cozy comfort of safety for the dangerous adventure of the unknown. Its that element of determination that holds you in place when weak soldiers flee. Its loyalty and doing whats right; brilliant intensity and going the long haul. Fierceness is fervent faith and lonely stands; solitary boldness and trying one more time." Men are drawn to this kind of fierceness because it reflects godly character. The purpose of Wagners book is to identify that fierceness, to celebrate it, and to direct it toward the best and highest ends. Used wrongly it can be so destructive, but used well it can be an incredible blessing.
Fierce Women is the kind of book a feminist will hate because it affirms God-ordained differences between men and women and because it pushes women to live for the good of others, to esteem others higher than themselves. It affirms a womans strength, but shows the biblical way to use that strength is to direct it in love toward others. Its a book I highly recommend.

Libby5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent Review on Biblical Womanhood!October 29, 2013LibbyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Where to begin! This was such a great book and there are so many things to share about it. Again, I heard about this book through Revive our Hearts, and then several other bloggers were reading and recommending it. (This book is for married women, but I believe that it is a great book to read in preparation for marriage. And the author had a sweet note in the back for singles, too.)
Kimberly Wagner writes to singles, "You can begin preparing yourself for marriage by implementing the character traits of the Beautifully Fierce Woman in your daily relationships with others_Don't waste your time of singleness in selfish pursuits but use this season to glorify God in your role as a soft warrior." She goes on to share some suggestions on doing that.
Kimberly Wagner honestly shares her story of being a fierce woman and how she used that fierceness as a destructive character trait. She tells how her marriage went through a hard season and how her fierceness affected her husband. It is full of honesty and she doesn't back away from sharing the truth found in her story. She points you to the Bible and God's ideas of womanhood. He wants you to use your fierceness for Him and His glory- by being a soft warrior.
She goes on to share many ways of how you can encourage your husband by using the acronym APPRECIATION. Each letter representing some way you can build your husband up and encourage him to use his manhood for Jesus. Some examples include: admire and affirm him, praying for him, encouraging his leadership, accepting him for who he is, and treating him like a man.
I also really loved and appreciated the section in the back that compares the Characteristics of a Beautifully Fierce Woman and the Characteristics of a Destructively Fierce Woman. This will be very convicting to many and will most certainly take you to the Cross.
I really enjoyed this book and learned so much from reading it. It is a book of conviction and Truth that will encourage and inspire you to be a woman that is a soft warrior. Many women will strongly benefit from this book- women who are preparing for marriage to women who have been married for years. A wonderful resource for any woman seeking God-honoring, Christ-glorifying, biblical womanhood!
