Real Women Leading With Proverbs 31 Values

About The Book: Today’s marketplace is not always a “values-friendly” environment. Business leaders Lisa Troyer and Dawn Yoder show you that you can live and thrive in a “valueless” workplace when you live by biblical values and principles.  Real Women: Leading with Proverbs 31 Values is a must-have leadership resource for today’s Christian woman. Written by women in the marketplace, Real Women cultivates biblical truth, credible relationship development, and practical application into everyday life through ten foundational principles. Once women embrace these ten principles, they will soon discover the multiple attributes of the Proverbs 31 woman in today’s marketplace and learn practical ways to implement the wisdom from that timeless Scripture passage.  Women will be encouraged to develop their God-given gifts and talents in the marketplace as they live out the principles that invite others to embrace the equality-inspiring values they live by. Knowing that we are not the end users of the gospel message, the Proverbs 31 leader will find the initiative to inspire the upcoming generation to view womanhood as a gift and continue the learning process that will impact generations to come.

My Thoughts On The Book: I have always wanted to be the perfect Proverbs 31 woman, but most of my life have fallen short.  Even with failure I continue to press on.   Lisa Troyer and Dawn Yoder definitely understand exactly what it means to be a woman leading with Proverbs 31 values.  These two writers really understand where women tend to struggle and  what it feels like to be in their shoes.  I loved the way the writers did not just explain Proverbs 31 to their readers, they gave a multitude of examples and made it clear to their audience that they truly live this life.  I feel much more prepared to face things in my own life with the aid of this book.  As a pastor in a small rural church I feel that this book is a great resource to have in my library.  This is a resource that can be used over and over in my own ministry.  I highly recommend purchasing this book.
