Book Review: The Blessed Woman

The Blessed Woman by Debbie Morris

I recently had the privilege of reviewing this book, or rather bible study.  It really is a great non-fiction piece that Debbie has intertwined into her own fictional versions of Bible stories.  This book bridges the gap of the wives in the Bible to our lives as busy wives and mothers now.  The stories relay how we can live grace-filled lives just as our Biblical peers did and how God desires for us to experience his tender loving kindness and the true meaning of being blessed women.
Each of the twelve chapters tells the struggles and joys of a woman of the Bible as well as Debbie's own life and creates a similarity that Christian women can easily relate to today.  Filled with wisdom, examples and humor, Debbie takes the reader on a journey of adopting these women as sisters in the Lord and role models for living a wholly blessed life.
What I like about this book is that it doesn't compare our hurried, busy daily lives to the typical Proverbs 31 woman whose life I don't think I could compare.  Debbie brings the good and bad of these women to the reader to show that the things we're going through right now were not unlike those of the women in the Bible stories we read.  Plain, simple and practical similarities between me and Eve, Mary, Naomi, Zipporah and Esther?!  Who would have thought?  But Debbie does a fantastic job of pulling us all together for the ultimate end result: to know God's tenderness and to be fully blessed!
