Visionary Womanhood Gatherings eBook Review & Giveaway

We live in a society completely and utterly obsessed with self. All too often, people bring children into the world just because that's what you do. They have no desire devote themselves to the great work of children rearing and they lack vision. My husband and I have decided to have as many children as we're able to for the purpose of raising them up to be used in Kingdom advancement. My goal is to use these years with my children at home to pour my life into them so that in 20 years or so, they'll go out and do the same. Our vision is not just for the here and now--it's a vision of generational obedience to Christ, that His gospel might be believed and His law obeyed in our descendants and in all the world.

Thankfully we are part of a faithful, very like-minded church. Outside our tiny congregation, though, it's not every day we come across people who share our vision. And when we do, it makes my heart flutter with excitement. When I stumbled across Visionary Womanhood a couple weeks ago (this post, actually), I was thrilled to not only find another very like-minded woman--but one who blogs. Yes! And, when I saw she had an eBook coming out this month, I jumped at the opportunity to review it.

This week, the Visionary Womanhood Gatherings ebook was released. Reading it was a breath of fresh air. Walking this road of counter-cultural, Christ-centered parenting is not always easy. Having others who are walking alongside you, going through the same things you're going through is a great blessing.

The first part of the book is an explanation of Visionary Womanhood. It is full of biblical truth and sweet encouragement. The second part of the book explains what Visionary Womanhood Gathering is--basically, it's a gathering of like-minded women to worship, pray for their posterity, and be edified together by solid, biblical teaching. The third section of the book gives you the tools, including a complete two year curriculum, for starting a Visionary Womanhood Gathering in your area.

Even if you don't feel like starting a group is something you want to do, I highly encourage you to read this eBook. You'll certainly be encouraged--and who knows? Maybe you'll change your mind.

To celebrate the release of the eBook, Natalie is offering a discount of $2 when you check out using the code LAUNCHWEEK, bringing the price down to just $2.99. After today, the price goes back up to $4.99.

I'm also excited to announce that Natalie is giving away one copy of her ebook to one of you all! To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment on this post sharing what resource has been the greatest source of encouragement to you as you strive to be a godly woman.
