I am cracking up at my title.
Don’t you wish we could have a wisdom giveaway? If only it were that easy! lol
But, we ARE giving away Lydia Brownback’s newest book, entitled
(Enter down at the very bottom of this post!)
Do you want your heart’s desires to be shaped by Scripture?
Do you want discernment to know what is good, better and best?
Then you’ll just love A Woman’s Wisdom! The chapter entitled Wise Women Know How to Think, Feel and Want alone is totally worth the price of her book. It was a great encouragement to me!
Some books are like a mini-vacation and take you to other places. Some books give you a laugh; others, insight into the character of others. And some books teach. For those of you who have written to me telling me that you desire a godly mentor and asking Where are All the Titus Two Women , please consider this book.
Lydia’s books are full of solid biblical teaching, wise counsel and refreshing application for everyday life. I have been so blessed by her writing. My girls and I have loved her On-the-Go Devotionals and I highly recommend her book Purity for your teenage/college age daughter.
We all want to be wise, but true wisdom is not something that comes without a healthy fear of the Lord. It cannot be obtained without a personal relationship with Christ. Many women read the book of Proverbs and search for wisdom, trying to apply what they read to their lives, but they never start at the beginning of wisdom: the fear of the Lord. Seeking wisdom without knowing Him properly is short sighted and futile.
Lydia has agreed to answer a few questions for you today, so grab a cup of tea and enjoy her insight!
Sarah: “What do you feel is the biggest challenge facing Christian women today?”
Lydia: “The biggest challenge facing women today… If you’re talking about western women, I’d have to say our greatest challenge is recognizing our absolute dependence on God. Because we have freedom to make personal decisions, because we know where our next meal is coming from, because we have ready access to healthcare, etc., we are less consciously aware that God’s hand provides all this each day. ”
Sarah:“What is the biggest truth you have learned recently that has helped you in your walk with God?”
Lydia: “I’d have to say that recently I’ve been reminded of truths about him–that his care and compassion are always hovering over his children, even when we aren’t loving and worshiping him as he deserves. I’ve also been reminded that he cares way more about our relationship with him than about what we do for him.”
Sarah: “What word of encouragement would you give to Christian women today?”
Lydia: “It’s true that if we seek him, he will be found by us. And he’s more worth searching for than any other thing we might desire. The more of him we know, the more we’ll want to know and want to live for him and enjoy him. He’s worth pursuing with everything we’ve got in us, and he’s the only pursuit that won’t let us down or prove to be less than we’d hoped.
And now it’s your turn!
