My Review:

In recent years, I have really embraced my role as a Christian wife, mom and woman. So I am always on the hunt for good reads that will encourage me as a Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 woman! Recently I had the opportunity to read The Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney. 

With honesty and in a Biblically sound fashion, Mahaney brings you on a journey to learn seven virtues that every Christian wife and mother should possess. These seven virtues are:

1. The Delight Of Loving My Husband
2. The Blessings Of Loving My Children
3. The Safety Of Self-Control
4. The Pleasure Of Purity
5. The Honor Of Working At Home
6. The Rewards Of Kindness
7. The Beauty Of Submission

As you read The Feminine Appeal you will journey through each season of womanhood as a wife, mom and woman after God's Own Heart. You will read of real-life and Biblical women and mothers for encouragement. You will learn that submission is not to be a negative concept but that we should embrace and live it out!

 Each chapter covers one of the seven virtues with clarity, honesty and urges women to confront their sinful nature and allow God to mold us to how He wants us to be. Although the book is designed to teach us how to be a Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 women, do not let that intimidate you. Let it encourage and lift you up, make you smile and allow you to change your life in ways you never thought possible. It also includes a wonderful study guide, perfect for individual and small group study purposes.

This book should be read by every Christian wife, and mom, and should be in every church library!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
