Book Review: Real Women Leading with Proverbs 31 Values

6 Mar

Real-Women-Leading-Cover-e1387571581462Today’s marketplace is not always a “values-friendly” environment. Business leaders Lisa Troyer and Dawn Yoder show you that you can live and thrive in a “valueless” workplace when you live by biblical values and principles.

Real Women: Leading with Proverbs 31 Values is a must-have leadership resource for today’s Christian woman. Written by women in the marketplace, Real Women cultivates biblical truth, credible relationship development, and practical application into everyday life through ten foundational principles. Once women embrace these ten principles, they will soon discover the multiple attributes of the Proverbs 31 woman in today’s marketplace and learn practical ways to implement the wisdom from that timeless Scripture passage.

Women will be encouraged to develop their God-given gifts and talents in the marketplace as they live out the principles that invite others to embrace the equality-inspiring values they live by. Knowing that we are not the end users of the gospel message, the Proverbs 31 leader will find the initiative to inspire the upcoming generation to view womanhood as a gift and continue the learning process that will impact generations to come.

TroyerYoder-210Lisa Troyer — Sometimes referred to by friends as the “singing executive,” wife, mom, radio personality, recording artist, speaker, and author. Her Circle of Friends women’s outreach, formed over a decade ago, is growing in all directions. Lisa uses her gift of encouragement, her influence, and her resources to open doors for women to discover their significance and belonging. She and her family currently live in Ohio.

Dawn Yoder is passionate about developing people to discover their strengths and reach their leadership potential. As CEO of a 500-plus employee company, she seeks to bring values and principle-based thinking into all aspects of society through a round table environment. Dawn is a member of the John Maxwell coaching team, an international trainer, a speaker with the Circle of Friends ministry, a contributing writer, a songwriter, and a frequent worship leader. She and her husband, Jeff, have been married for more than 20 years and have four children.

My Impressions:

Having led a church women’s ministry for 10 years, I learned that it is important to have an intentional strategy to reach women for Christ and encourage them to become all they can be in Him. Whether you serve in a small church with an even smaller budget or in a big women’s ministry, check out Lisa Troyer and Dawn Yoder’s new book Real Women Leading with Proverbs 31 Values. While not a book on how to do women’s ministry, it is a great tool for women’s ministry leaders to use to discover God’s purposes and principles for themselves and the women they serve.

The authors of Real Women Leading believe that Proverbs 31 contains core principles that every woman should embrace in their journey with God. By exploring these principles along with the lives of Biblical women, we can grow into the women God intends us to be — not cookie cutter women, but the unique person God intends.

Proverbs 31 Values — Understanding People, Forgiveness, Responsibility, Attitude, Resolving Conflict, Restraint, Honesty, Planning, Generosity, and Influence.

Real Women Leading is designed for all women and is great for personal study, but I think this is a perfect resource for your women’s ministry and believe it would be great as a book study for your ministry team. By understanding God’s principles, it will help you understand the unique roles and influence of women, define and focus your ministry, as well as grow the relationships among leadership.
