Becoming A Woman Who Loves by Cynthia Heald ~ 5 stars

Becoming A Woman Who Loves
Cynthia Heald
Becoming a Woman of... series (Bible Studies)
NavPress
About the book:
Jesus loved unconditionally, passionately, and sacrificially. How can we possibly love as He did? And what does such love look like?

Best-selling author Cynthia Heald confirms that, yes, you can learn to love as Christ loved and that you will be richly blessed in the process. Becoming a Woman Who Loves takes you by the hand to explore the incredible nature of Christlike love. With Cynthiaa (TM)s beloved blend of candor, wisdom, and sound Bible teaching, you will discover how to be sure such beautiful love truly resides deep within your soul and how to let it flow more freely to others in your daily conversations, encounters, and thoughts.

As you become a woman who loves as Jesus loved, your life will never be the same.

My review:
This is a great study on a biblical view of loving. Cynthia filled it with great verses, quotes, and topics that really make you think about how YOU love others. I had to take it slowly so that each section could sink in.

I would recommend this to anyone. Christian, non-Christian, it doesn’t matter. This book still has practical lessons on loving others that anyone could benefit from. Check this book out! It will be worth it. :)

Carman, I've done all of Cynthia's studies and LOVED them! I think my favorite might be Becoming a Woman of Prayer. I've often used the quotes she digs up from great Christians of the past and present. I even go back to studies I've done to re-read and remind myself of things God showed me through her books. So glad you mentioned this on your blog! I hope lots of folks pick up one of her studies for themselves!

Renee~ I'm glad to hear that the other studies are good too! I hope to do more of them one day. I'm glad I read it too! That is a good idea. I will probably keep my book for future reference as well. :)

This sounds really good! I'll have to check it out! ;)

Oh! this book sounds a lot like another book I've been reading. It's called "Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free". I love books that pertain specifically to the women characteristics. Perhaps that's because I am a young woman, who knows? :)

Emily~ I hope you do! It was great. :)

Nonners~ Huh. I've never heard of that, but I'm going to check it out! Thanks for letting me know about it!

I think this is one of the hardest things to do all the time - have charity towards everyone. I think it's something we'll each always work on. :)

Tressa~ I totally agree! It is a daily choice for each of us.
