Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, striving to be the women they "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christian women add to the pressure. "Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul.
The message of Captivating is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.
Finally, a book that delves deep into a woman’s soul and reveals the beauty of whom God created her to be. Captivating is a beautiful exhortation of the love of God for women. This book explores the deepest desires of a woman’s heart and how important it is not to deny our true identities.
Captivating dares to uncover truths about our creation, relationships, wounds and struggles. This book will encourage you and remind you how beloved you are by God. Our culture is rife with messages to women that they have to do more, buy more, be more. These are lies and true peace comes from resting in your true identity, knowing what truly fulfills you.
This book resonates with the female soul. You will want to pass it onto other women. After reading it, I passed mine onto my grown daughters, who in turn are now recommending it to their friends!
She is the crescendo, the final, astonishing work of God. Woman. In one last flourish creation comes to a finish with Eve. She is the Master’s finishing touch.
As we increasingly become women of substance, women who offer true beauty, we find that our hearts grow in their capacity to love and be loved, to desire, to live. Our hearts are enlarged by Jesus.
