Product Description

Mary Ellen Ashcroft knows about the confusing thoughts and feelings that women experience. In this book she writes about where the needs and motivations of women come from, what temptations hook into these needs, and how women can get beyond them. Ashcroft maintains that we should look honestly at our temptations and ask what they tell us about ourselves. She believes God's intention is not simply that we avoid, resist, or flee temptation, but that we use it to fire our spiritual growth in areas of life we have neglected. Temptations Women Face shows the way through each temptation and how women can, day by day, begin to build a life pleasing to God.

Publisher's Description

"Why am I so consumed with what's trivial instead of what's really important?" "When I feel like a failure, I look at somebody else and get so envious." "I know why I accumulate nice things and even nice people--to prove that I'm worth something." Mary Ellen Ashcroft knows firsthand about these thoughts and feelings. In this book she writes about where the needs and motivations of women come from, what temptations hook into these needs and how women can get beyond them. As women, she says, we can find ourselves tempted to
  • fill our lives with things
  • let our anger consume us
  • focus on food or dieting
  • believe distortions about sex
  • get stuck in our dissatisfaction
Ashcroft maintains that we should look honestly at our temptations and ask what they tell us about ourselves. She believes that God's intention is not simply that we avoid, resist or flee temptation, but that we use it to fire our spiritual growth in areas of life we have neglected. Temptations Women Face shows the way through each temptation and helps us day by day to build a life pleasing to God.

Editorial Reviews

"Ashcroft may be unveiling a good new day for half of the human race!"
"A thought-provoking and important book."
"A book all women and perhaps all Christians need to read. It reminds us that we need to sit much longer at Jesus' feet doing what cannot be taken away from us."

    My daughter was doing a study using this book and I dropped in to visit for a couple of days and picked it up to read. It targets areas that we can all check out in our lives. I would highly recommend it. Easy to read, makes a point and moves on. My kind of book.
