The Resolution for Women by Priscilla Shirer

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.

Priscilla Shirer is a Bible teacher and conference speaker with a Master’s degree in Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary. She is also the author of popular books including A Jewel in His Crown, He Speaks to Me, Discerning the Voice of God, and One in a Million. The daughter of author Dr. Tony Evans, Priscilla is married to Jerry with whom she founded Going Beyond Ministries. They have three sons and live in Dallas, Texas.

The Resolution for Women is a truly life-changing book that should be required reading for any woman who strives to live a godly life. It is divided into three main sections: This is who I am, This is what I have, and This is what matters to me. Each of the three sections are further divided into smaller segments and each is followed by a personal resolution. At the end of each chapter, the reader is encouraged to examine her life and make a conscious and serious commitment to make positive changes in our lives.

There are thirteen awesome resolutions covered in this book, along with a place to sign and date your intentions. As with any great changes, we tend to take things more seriously if we have signed our name. It would be great to have a friend join in as well, and help each other to be accountable.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire Courageous series.
