Rshoe5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent resource to own!April 10, 2019RshoeQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have found this book to be extremely helpful! I have actually been slowly working my way through it as a devotional. As a busy mom of 4 young girls, it has been both simple for me to easily pick up and read, and it has also been so practical in living out what I am reading! I love that they have it broken into categories, so you can easily turn to a subject where you are needing help or encouragement. Within those, the scripture is written out, so you don't have to have a Bible handy to read the scriptural texts they suggest. I love the quotes they use by godly men and women, which help bring even more depth to what God says about each topic through His word. They have "practical living" and "recommended reading" sections, which are an awesome resource to have. This is the best scripture reference book I have ever seen. I would recommend every woman to have this book in her library!
Kayla5 Stars Out Of 5God's ideas about my sin and strugglesJanuary 12, 2018KaylaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5When I offered to review this book my first thought was, how can it help and lead others to change? Rather, this book changed me, because God's Word through the Holy Spirit, always has the power to change us.
With a strong gospel-rich foundation of the glories of God, it categorizes Scripture references under topics we, as women, are likely to struggle with, while additionally listing resources and practical living suggestions. It is God's ideas about my sin and struggles, not another woman's opinion about my sin and struggles.
A systematic theology for women of sorts, this book should be on the nightstand of every woman in ministry (aka: EVERY Christian woman). It should be understood that this is a reference tool, not a cohesive book about one topic.
I could not be more proud of this mom/daughter duo from Calvary University and am excited to see the impact this book will have on the Biblical Counseling world!
The only side note that I would add is this: I would not endorse all literature mentioned as extra reading and Scripture should always be read and understood within it's context, which is critical for a new believer to understand.

Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A Helpful Resource For Biblical Comfort And WisdomJanuary 1, 2018Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5God's Wisdom For Women: Topical Scripture And Encouragement by Patricia Miller & Rachel Gorman is more than your standard book of suggested verses relating to a myriad of topics. In this unique and insightful book, you'll find that Patricia and Rachel have compiled inspirational quotes, key concepts, relevant scriptures, practical living tips, and recommended reading suggestions for 52 major issues pertinent to women's lives today.
Divided into 7 main categories, including Knowing God, Lifestyle, Daily Struggles, and more, you'll find helpful reading relating to topics ranging from "Who Is God?" to "Clothing" and "Marriage". While God's Wisdom For Women is designed to pick-and-choose topics that apply to your life's present circumstances, I would highly suggest that all young women or those new to the Christian faith give it a thorough reading from cover to cover, while embracing the multitude of wisdom contained within it's pages.
Whether you find yourself struggling with grief, social media addictions, questions about your core identity, or simply want to feel more at peace with your place in your local community, this book will be a true asset. With a heavy duty spiral binding designed to last through countless readings, God's Wisdom For Women deserves a place on every Christian woman's bookshelf. 5/5 stars.

M_Fitzgerald5 Stars Out Of 5Review: God's Wisdom for WomenOctober 30, 2017M_FitzgeraldQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5`God's Wisdom for Women' is an inspirational, spiral bound book for women by authors Patricia Miller and Rachel Gorman. There are several different topics within this book, under each topic are subtitles which pertain to that topic. For example, under the topic `Knowing God` are The Good News, Who Is God?, How to Know God, Why the Bible?, What to do with Doubt, and Sin and God's Forgiveness. Other topics include Encouragement, Daily Struggles, Difficult Challenges, and more. Scripture quotations are from any one of the following Bibles: English Standard Version, Good News Translation, The Message, New American Standard, NET, NIV, NKJV, or NLT.
The cover is very feminine looking which I love. Each subtitle is organized into several Bible verses, quotations, practical living tips, and recommended reading. This would make a great gift for a new Christian or any woman needing encouragement. One of my favorite subtitles is Social Media. Almost everyone has access to social media and knowing how to handle it is wise. Bible verses are referred to on loving God's creation, not man's imperfect systems, Make good use of your time by setting time limits and sticking to them and seek contentment with circumstances and possessions.
`God's Wisdom for Women` is easy to use as it is helpful and informative. However, I am not sure I like the spiral book bind. Seems like it would be easier for pages to tear. In general, the print is easy to read so someone with less than perfect vision should be able to read it if they are wearing glasses. So I give this book 5* out of 5*
