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.

Now this book I could really and truly relate to, written for women by a woman and clearly sets the path one should follow to better enrich their lives.  This is a book not to be taking lightly, but to be savoured and applied to all your life choices.

I was impressed with how well-written the book was, easy to understand and filled with many scriptures and quotes to back the author's claims.  I feel the need to reread this book over and truly apply it to my life, the chapter on children is one to truly consider if you are a family person and have doubts about your children's direction.  This book offers insight into yourself and offer valuable lessons to apply.

There are many issues discussed and they are broken down into three resolutions.  The first is resolve who you are and how you value yourself.  The second addresses what you have and how you can release yourself from your own prison and care about those around while walking in God' light.  The third resolution discusses what matters to you and how to live with a better adjustment to the surroundings around you.  At the end there is a commitment document in which you sign in order to challenge yourself to follow the directions set before you as you peruse the pages.

I would give The Resolution of Women a five out of five stars.  It offers much insight and depth of your own character and how to stand before God and feel worthy in all that you do.  I found it to be highly thought-provoking and very inspirational and would recommend this for study and self-help groups.
