God’s Wisdom for Women: Topical Scripture and Encouragement by Patricia A. Miller and Rachel Gorman was published on October 17th, 2017 by Baker Books and is an inspirational, spiral-bound book. Many people believe that the Bible has answers and encouragement for our lives–our questions, struggles, heartaches, and joys. But most people don’t know where to find the answers within the pages of Scripture. People need a tether to Scripture and a map for journeying deeper and learning more from the Bible. Organized by topic, God’s Wisdom for Women is the perfect starting point for women to easily discover what God has to say about their lives and journeys. Within each topic readers will find truth from God’s Word, encouraging quotes from leading writers, practical steps, and suggestions for further reading. More than 50 topics–such as decision-making, friendship, contentment, grief, worry, guilt, and social media–cover a range of experiences, hardships, and joys, allowing women to seek hope and encouragement from Scripture for themselves and others.

My thoughts: God’s Wisdom for Women is an inspirational book for women. I really like that this is a spiral bound book because it makes it easier to hold while reading. This book is divided by topics and subtitles that pertain to the topic. There is scripture, reflection, practical living tips, quotations, recommended reading and devotions throughout this beautiful book. The cover has a gorgeous floral design that is very feminine. This would make a lovely gift for any women needing encouragement. I found this book to be easy to use and very informative. Overall, an amazing inspirational read that I highly recommend. ** I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. **
