This book changed my life - and changed me in many ways. Elizabeth George has written a book to help women become the woman/wife/mother that God intended. Biblical quotations are used throughout.

This book can be very frustrating at times but the content is spot on and very challenging. It really made think - and continued to prompt me long after I had read it.

I have lent this book to many of my friends and all have found it challenging and very rewarding.

I recommend this book to any Christian woman who is trying to be the best that she can be.

Although familiar with other Christian authors, I have never read anything by "Elizabeth George" before and I wasn't disappointed, in fact since reading "A Woman After God's Own Heart" I have purchased some of her other books.

Essentially 'A Woman After God's Own Heart' is a Christian book detailing the ideal Christian woman's approach to life, a very enjoyable and refreshing change from the modern go-getting, high productivity style of self improvement book.

"Elizabeth George" proffers advice and help for many areas of your life, focussing on your spiritual needs (she explains that this is the most important area, if you can get this part right then often the rest will follow), then your husband, children, your home, yourself and finally your ministry.

Very readable throughout, the author writes in a very pleasing style and you do not feel that she is preaching to you, just leading you gently in the right direction. As expected there are many scriptural references, all very helpful in your search for a better life filled with peace and joy.

Give it a try ... it could do you a lot of good.

Amazing book! I had to put the book down at one point and took a deep breath as I felt it was directly speaking to me! I have not finished reading it but would highly recommend it to all married women (yes, I know singles would benefit too but I think those who are married would benefit more from this book).

I have struggled with this book. It seems to me that Elizabeth George's philosophy might seem the way in which women should seek to live but I question how appropriate and realistic it is in this day and age.

George poses some questions which not only women but men, teenagers and children should ask themselves. For instance she asks `Is there a difference in the tone of your voice you reserve for your friends and the one you use with your family?' And again she encourages one to `eliminate idleness' by identifying `time robbers' and thus have more time to `help you buy back time for watching and working in your precious home.' Amongst the `time robbers' are:

* Inadequate personal planning
* Interruptions by people without appointments - she does point out that children are not interruptions!
* Unclear priorities
* Reading junk mail (I do this not to waste time but to bring me a smile!)
* Lack of concern for good time management (I am a person not a robot)

And George goes on to ask `which robber will you corral this week as you become a more alert, better watcher over your home?'

I find the language she uses and her style of writing very `American' and not very sympathetic to a woman striving to do her best for her husband and her family. I have to admit that some of her ideas and suggestions have merit but because of the dislike I have for her tone, I tend to disregard what she says. I have attempted to read `A Woman after God's Own Heart' three times but without success. I am afraid George is not for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and got a lot out of it. It really did help me to see that I am a person of worth, and my 'job' as a housewife and mum really is important. It made me think much more about how I see myself, and how other people see me - and it made me realise that I can find happiness in whatever I do with my life. I am a Christian, but I think any woman could be equally enriched by reading this book. I will most certainly be seeking out more books by this author.

This is a well written book which details how to fulfil your potential as a woman in God. It helps every woman understand how to live a godly life and walk according to God's principles in day to day life and roles such as being a wife, a mother and a servant in God's vineyard. I have been blessed by this book and have shared it with family and friends.

Writing under my husband's account...

I'm sorry to say I bought this book based on the 5 star reviews and am wondering how it could have got that high a score. My reaction when I read it was there is not much impression of writing from experience and I got the distinct impression of being preached to not guided. I will not be recommending the book to my friends.

I am writing this as a full-time mother of 3 boys...

I have given it 2 stars as there are some good and valid points in it but the rest is only any good if you want to spend your life at the beck and call of your children and husband, feels to me very much set in the '50s where you should have supper on the table for your husband the moment he walks through the door, and your children being quiet (!!!!) and playing nicely so they don't disturb his peace....heaven forbid he should actually take an active part in parenting.... and don't let YOUR friends come round or phone when it imposes on your husband's time at home... and for sure none of your kids' friends should still be there when your husband comes home.

So basically I'm stuffed!... I'm very involved at church and my husband supports this. I couldn't do any of what I do if i had to be a 1950's woman. And where is the author's personal experience of this.... the books that mean the most to me are ones where the author is writing from experience...ie I would highly recommend anything by Lisa Bevere.
