Fierce Women + a Thanksgiving Contest

October 14, 2012

in the generous life

I’ve just finished reading a book entitled Fierce Women: The Power of a Soft Warrior by Kimberly Wagner. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the title intrigued me. 

What I found was a very challenging book. From my perspective it was hugely about integrity and allowing God to shape how you express your inner strengths, particularly in the marriage relationship. (I love the picture on the book.)

Fierce Women would be great for personal study or small discussion groups. There are truckloads (and I mean truckloads) of very challenging questions and you get a bird’s eye view of the author’s personal struggle in this area. I found her story to be very encouraging and insightful. It’s easier to see your own sin (and own up to it) when it is modeled by someone else and, honestly, her transparency is refreshing. Her ability to cut right down to the truth is amazing (if not sometimes painful).

I was sent an extra copy by the publisher, so I’m going to use it as the prize for this contest. I’ll pick a random number on October 29th and the writer of the comment on that spot will win the extra copy.

So the contest … [please note this was done in 2012]

Please leave, as a comment to this blog post, your ideas about thanksgiving and gratitude. It can be anything from how you celebrate Thanksgiving (just around the corner) to creative ways of saying thanks to your husband to thoughts on gratitude.

Looking forward to reading all your great ideas.

Michael Hyatt: Never Waste a Good Fiasco A great guest post from Tyler Ellis. This is not a “marriage” post, but fiascos happen in marriage and I think his points fit well.

It is often hard to be grateful for things when you feel like the world is crashing down on you, but one of the best ways I have found to show gratefulness to the Lord (and, bonus, it lightens my burdens) is the list what I am thankful for.

I really need to restart my thankful thursday posts!

We spend Thanksgiving enjoy the company of family (and sometimes friends). We get together, eat delicious food, and enjoy being with other.

I started a thanksgiving journal after reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I am at 1445 and it has changed my life. Being thankful to God is everything and in everything give thanks!
