Lioness Arising is a fabulous book. Here is what is on the back cover: Women, it's time to Awaken, God did not save you to tame you. a life of fierce passion. dangerous prayer, stunning power, and teamed purpose. Awaken...your response could very well change your world. This was so true of this book. For me, it started out a little slow....but I really don't think I was in the right frame of mind. So I put it down for quite some time. Months later I revisited it. This time, the time was JUST right. She compares ALL that we do, feel, etc, to lioness'. And rightfully so. It was a TOTAL bonus to learn SO much about an animal that God created, WHILE learning how to "WAKE UP and CHANGE MY WORLD" the way that God would like us to. Honestly, this book was like reading a documentary on Lions and Lioness'. But the next chapter, she would relate that to God, to us, to was SO neat to see how she could combine the two. How as women, we actually live entertwined lives with Lioness'. I feel SO much more respect for lioness' then I did before I started reading this book. This book MAY have solidified my new favorite animal! :-) One exciting quote, "God is inviting one and all to take their positions, like the lioness, every one in their place, everyone in their strength." SO true. And to back up what she says, she has plenty of scripture. That is when I really start to "trust" a book, when it can be backed by scripture. To end, I would like to quote something from the end of her book, "If lionesses know their young are not safe when they are isolated from other lionesses, why do we try to be so independent? Together we can protect the young from death and destruction. Isolated we don't have a chance. This being the case, why are we so frightened to admit our need for each other? We don't need to engage the masses, we just need a few caring, compassionate people to change the world for the masses."
