About This Book
The drive to succeed is a strong force in Western culture, and women are powerfully influenced by it. It is tempting to pursue triumphs that will impress the world, rather than achievements that will advance God's kingdom. In these studies, you'll meet fascinating historical women of the Bible who enjoyed worthy successes--women whose willingness to act upon God's leading made them achievers for him. Some well-known, some lesser known; some rich, some poor, these women came from all walks of life. Studying their stories will encourage you to become an influencer for God in your world.
"I can't say enough good things about Women Who Achieved for God. It gets at the heart of the unworthiness so many women feel and finds the stories within Scripture that we so desperately need to hear, consider, think about together and apply to our everyday lives. But it?s also a great Bible Study for couples, though that may not have been her intent. It is so well balanced, so rich with God's faithfulness in helping each of us achieve what he has in store for us, no matter how insignificant we may at times feel we are in the scheme of things. I hope to introduce it to our own community church. It would make a great study for a group though I've been doing it by myself (and sharing it with my husband, too). It felt as though Winnie had been eavesdropping on my life, directing me to the very scriptural supports I needed to read to feel reassured of God?s presence and guidance in my everyday life. May it reach thousands!"
