What Would a Holy Woman Do?

About the book: What woman would describe herself as "holy"? And yet, the Lord has commanded us to "practice holiness ... continually." What is the meaning of holiness? How can we become a little more holy day by day? Is that even possible? Or is holiness just a lofty, impossible goal?

In considering these questions, bestselling author Wendy Watson Nelson offered a three-day experiment to several friends. For three days each woman chose one of her normal daily activities and asked herself "How would a holy woman do this?" For example, how would a holy woman handle a conflict, or avoid a conflict? How would she manage a lengthy to-do list? What would she do in difficult situations? And then each woman followed through on the answer. Their experiences are both eye-opening and encouraging as we begin to understand how gifts of the Spirit can help us become the women that the Lord needs us to be. This powerful message will inspire listeners to take their own three-day challenge and discover what the Lord is willing to teach each of us about becoming more holy.

My review: This is one of the books I got for Christmas and I'm kicking myself that it took me so long to get to it!

I love the way it's written. It's really short, it's easy to read. But it really made me think. I liked that the author shares experiences of women that she knows in real life. I liked the way their experiences made it easier to apply what she was saying to my own life. 

I like that there are places in this book to record your own personal thoughts when you try her three day holy woman experiment. After reading this book, I've been thinking and pondering more about just what it does mean to be a holy woman and about how I can work on being more holy each and every day.

Make sure you read this book. If you do, I want to know what you think about it!
