The Resolution for Women

Published at B&H
About the book
Written in partnership with Sherwood Pictures' upcoming film, COURAGEOUS, in The Resolution for Women, popular speaker and author Priscilla Shirer challenges all women to be intentional about embracing and thriving in God’s beautiful and eternal calling on their lives.
Like the men in the movie who resolve to fully accept their responsibilities before God, Shirer explains how today's women can and should live out their own resolution. It is "a defining banner that hangs over your life, written in the ink of your own choices." A woman's banner should be an accurate reflection of who she desires to be-someone completely Christ-centered who blesses and changes things in her world for the better.
The Resolution for Women inspires women with intentional, spirit-filled living from three unique angles. Section one, entitled, "This Is Who I Am," helps a woman define herself as "authentically me, purposefully feminine, surprisingly satisfied, and faithfully His." Section two, "This Is What I Have," invites her to value "my best, my blessing, my honor, and my heart." And Section three, "This Is What Matters To Me," focuses on joyfully honoring God as a wife, mother, and family member while resolving to live with the grace that leaves a godly legacy. The Resolution for Women is designed to inspire a revolution.

I will admit that I have not seen the movie Courageous at this point in time. But I am looking forward to discover it as I am slowly reading the Resolution for Women.
Starting in January, I am going to re-read the book at a much slower pace - about one chapter a week – to take the time to apply what I am reading through its pages. The book is divided in three main parts containing each a number of themes.
This is who I am section will teach you about the gift of contentment, how to become biblically feminine, how to value yourself and celebrate others as well as how to be devoted to Christ and be defined by His Word.
This is what I have section will guide you in seeing God’s priorities in your life, how to be available for others with your time, concern, and full attention, how to help others to get out of their prison of hurt and anger, how to live with high standards of virtue and purity as well as how to care.
This is what matters to me section will provide insights on how to bless your man, how to train your kids in righteousness, how to make your home a welcoming place and how to live today with the future in mind.
Each chapter contains scriptures reference to help you discover what the Bible has to say about the subject in hand as well as thought provoking questions on the theme covered. At the end of a theme, you will be encourage to re-read your answers to the questions asked as well as take a step of faith and proclaim the resolution to yourself. It is strongly suggested that you proclaim it out loud and preferably in the presence of someone who can held me accountable. You will also have to sign the resolution once you have grab it to yourself… At the end of the book you can read through all the resolutions for Women in one glance.
It is also possible to purchase a Resolution for Women that you can sign and hang on your walls for a reminder to stay true to the amazing woman God created you to be.
I am not perfect and I know it. But having this book in my hands, I realize that I can change and become a better wife, mother, daughter, friend. I am willing to start the process of a new me in 2012. I strongly encourage others to consider getting the Resolution for Women and embark on a journey with me.
