Disciplines of a Godly Woman (Femme de Dieu, exerce-toi à la piété)
For many, this word alone inspires fear. Not because we don't aspire to be disciplined physically, mentally, and spiritually. But the challenge seems so difficult, or we are motivated by duty rather than desire. And we all know that when it comes to our Christian walk, we don't want to fall into legalism and limit ourselves to following a set of rules. There is much more to the Christian life, doesn't it?
Barbara Hughes responds with this encouragement: The real heart of spiritual discipline is a relationship with God. As this relationship deepens and your love for your Heavenly Father and his ways grows, you will find that discipline will help you stay attached to him. This is how he gives meaning to your whole life. As you realize that there is nothing more important than loving Him every moment, in your every activity and every thought, you will see your fears turn into aspirations.
AuthorBARBARA HUGHES has actively supported the pastoral ministry of her husband, Kent, for almost 40 years, while raising her four children. Valued in her role as a teacher in women's groups, she has also written, with her husband Kent, the books Common-Sense Parenting and The Ministry Freed from the Syndrome of Success. Her husband is the author of the book Man of God, Practice Godliness.
“An invitation, not to an abstract list of disciplines, but to divine grace which shapes us in all aspects of concrete life.
- KATHLEEN NIELSON, Director of Women's Initiatives for the Gospel Coalition
“At a time when many young women are looking for a mentor, and many mature women feel ill-equipped to take on this task, this book represents a wise and loving response for these two groups. »
- DR. CLAIRE SMITH, author of the book God’s Good Design
"This is a treasure chest of biblical wisdom. All Christian women who desire to be like Jesus should read this book. "
