A book report.
“I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 11:3 (NASB)
If you walk into any book store you will find shelf after shelf of modern day cures for the overwhelmed and frazzled superwoman, the so called Christian Book Store is no exception. These cures are just a band aid, they only temporarily cover up the superficial wounds of running around with too much to do and no purpose for doing it. Becoming a Woman of Simplicity isn’t a superficial band aid. The author really gets to the core of the issue, the lack of being simply and purely devoted to Christ. While other books will encourage you to take more “me time” or hire a professional life coach or trainer, you won’t find those lies here.
Cynthia Heald cuts out all of the “psychology this” and “feelings that” and leads you through an in-depth and thorough bible study filled with the truth, the scriptures and her own thoughts written in an encouraging “Titus 2” format.
This book fits right along with cutting out the crud and getting down to what really matters, what actually counts in life, and that is right up my alley.
If you have ever felt like the pressures of life are suffocating you, this book will get you going in the right direction and reveal the simple truths needed to get you back to breathing.
I really enjoyed this book and I hope to complete it as a study with other women.
