Review: Becoming a Woman of Simplicity by Cynthia Heald

I have a confession to make: I haven't made the time to read this book yet - perhaps that is the single most reason I NEED this book? Even still, not having read it, I have read some of Cynthia's other books, namely, Becoming a Woman of Excellence and have had the privilege of hearing her speak on more than one occasion back when we were involved with The Navigators.

I whole-heartedly endorse anything she has to say. Here's the book description:

In a culture that pulls women in multiple directions at once, is it possible to adjust priorities, reexamine your time management, and reduce your busyness in exchange for what is truly important--becoming like Jesus?
Written by Navigator author and Bible teacher Cynthia Heald, Becoming a Woman of Simplicity is a topical Bible study that delves into Scripture to offer practical, real-life counsel on rest and stress to women.

Oh man, can you say convicted? I do feel pulled in multiple directions at once, but I'm the one pulling myself. It's a choice. I need to choose rest and simplicity.

This series of "Becoming a Woman of..." books by Cynthia Heald are set up in lesson/study form and have space for you to record your thoughts/answers.

Amazon has Becoming a Woman of Simplicity for $9.99 with free shipping. NavPress is selling it for $7.49. It would be perfect for individual reflection or a small group Bible Study.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from NavPress Publishers as part of their Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commision's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising." I do not hold NavPress responsible for how insanely busy my life has been since receiving the book.  I do intend to actually read this book. I'm hoping it happens soon.
