A Woman's High Calling: 10 Ways to Live Out God's Plan for Your Life by Elizabeth George
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Have you ever sat down and read Titus 2:3-5 and then wondered what exactly does it all mean and how does it apply to your life?
Elizabeth George digs into that passage, and many more, in this book and not only explains the meaning but also how to apply it to your life in simple steps. A Woman's High Calling is part Bible study, part cozy chat with a dear friend, part how-to guide which brings to life the high calling of Titus 2. I love the easy flow of the book that is clear, focused, and above all, Biblical. The study guide in the back of the book helps you work through more Scripture passages to better understand and apply what you have learned.
This is the updated edition and I like how it has condensed the original two-part book and study guide to one book that flows better as well as being simpler to use. However, the one negative that I found was that it seemed to cut out some of the deeper digging passages found in the original study guide. That being said, it still presents a sound Biblical message in a format that is great for individual reading or a group study.
A Woman's High Calling is suitable for new believers and mature believers both young and old. It is a great overview of Biblical womanhood that will encourage and challenge single, married, or widowed women. I also think it would make a great study for a Mother/Daughter Bible study.
Now updated with an exciting, practical study guide and a new cover—one of bestselling author Elizabeth George’s popular titles, with over 200,000 copies sold.
“Every woman would love to replace a life of survival with a life of meaningful accomplishment,” says Elizabeth. In A Woman’s High Calling, she helps readers to eliminate the clutter and chaos of everyday life and focus on the few things God considers truly essential. And they’re spelled out in Titus 2:3-5, where God shines the spotlight on…
-love of husband
-goodness of heart
-love of children
-ministry to other women
-love of home
There’s no higher calling for women than making God’s priorities their own. Readers will be eager to simplify their lives, adopt God’s essentials, and pass them on by mentoring other women. With the now-included study guide, they’ll realize immediate results.
