Book Review: Becoming a Woman of Excellence


I recently left my job of 17 years to raise and homeschool my youngest child. I was overwhelmed with the voices (self-inflicted and from family alike) that condemned me because I was no longer financially contributing to our family. I no longer felt like the successful business woman I once was. Now I was labeled just a stay at home mom. I knew without a doubt that this is where God wanted me but those thoughts and conversations continued to play out in my head.

Knowing I needed some reassurance from God, I picked up the Bible study book mentioned below that I received complimentary from Tyndale Blog Network. I got busy learning about God’s view of success. The book was packed with prompts to read Scripture and room to record the verses and my notes. The author gave her commentary as she, the older woman, mentored me, the reader, in God’s Word. Now I have a biblical view of success and know I am valued as a stay at home mom.

The book has 11 chapters, but I took a little longer than expected. I like to open my Bible and highlight the verses that speak to me. I am looking forward to doing more studies written by Cynthia Heald.

About the Book

Society beckons us to succeed—to achieve excellence in our appearance, our earning power, our family life. God Himself also beckons us to be women of excellence. But what exactly is He asking? If you’re hungry for God’s perspective on success in a society that bombards you with conflicting demands, feed on the truths of God’s Word that you’ll discover in these pages. You will not only learn to “approve the things that are excellent” but will also experience the joy of becoming God’s woman of excellence. This bestselling topical Bible study has helped over one million women over the past 30 years, and is newly revised and updated so today’s women can discover who God designed them to be in this day and age. Written by Navigator author and Bible teacher Cynthia Heald, the 11 sessions in this Bible study explore what your identity in Christ is and how you can best serve Him.
