- Houston, TX (1888PressRelease) September 23, 2010 - New book released: "Virtuous not Perfect" (ISBN 978-9825217-4-8, paperback, North Wind Publishing, Sept. 2010, 208 pages, 5 x 8 trim, $14.95). Just the word "Virtuous" is intimidating and seems impossible to achieve. This book tells 15 stories of six modern day virtuous women "in the making," and nine biblical virtuous women who all had similar problems and vices like infidelity, drunkenness, arrogance, selfishness, attempted suicide, and so on. Each woman embodies attributes of the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31. Helpful hints are sprinkled throughout the book and the author has included study questions and prayers to encourage women of all ages in their journey.
The author has given the woman from in Proverbs 31 a name, and her name is Wisdom. Wisdom is vibrant, intuitive, intelligent, and inspiring, reliable and responsible, tangible and thick skinned, unassuming, obedient to the Lord, organized, unceasing, sanctified, submissive and serene. How can you become more like this woman called Wisdom?
This is a wonderful book for small group or individual study for those looking to become more like the woman described in Proverbs 3. Read this book to begin a journey of discovery, learning who these women are and how you can grow in your relationship with God and become a virtuous (not perfect) woman.
Review: "As Spiritual Care Director and Stephen Minister of a faith based treatment center for emotionally and sexually abused teen-aged girls, [I feel] this book is a must read for these hurting young ladies. Virtuous not Perfect provides a fresh and thoughtful perspective on purity, character, and tough choices that must be made by all young ladies in a godless world in order to become the woman that God has intended for them to be, no matter what the circumstances they find themselves in along the way. Denise has made this book come alive in sharing her own life journey and faith struggles in pursuing our Abba Father and has found the promise of virtue that is meant for each young woman and His unrelenting love and pursuit of us.
