The Gospel-Centered Woman is available.

Here’s the scary thing about publishing a book. Inevitably, people attribute some type of expertise to the author. That makes sense. If I published a book on techniques on

teaching math to 9th graders, it would be right to assume I had some expertise there. But publishing a book on gospel-centered womanhood is a little different. I don’t have it all together. But then again, if I did, I wouldn’t need the gospel. This book is written by and for women who don’t have it all together. Who struggle. Whose burdens in life sometimes feel overwhelming. This is not a guilt inducing book. God forbid! It would be the height of hypocrisy if I wrote a book that made other women feel guilt because of some imagined pinnacle of Biblical womanhood I had achieved.

Instead, this book is written from moments of my deepest pain and struggle as I walked with other friends through their pain and struggle. God meets us in the worst places and shows how the good news of Jesus’ coming makes an all-surpassing difference in those moments. My prayer is that this book would minister grace to my sisters in Christ who struggle to put one foot in front of the other as we long for Jesus’ return.

You can order the book from the Estore for the next two weeks using coupon code FGBFA79S to receive 20% off. Email me at theologyforwomen@gmail.com for a code to receive 30% off for orders of 10 or more. The book is also available on Amazon, but I do not have the ability to offer discounts through them, so if you want a discount, the Estore is the way to go.

If you want to do the study in a group, each book contains pages to write out reflections along with discussion questions at the end. I have three free copies to give away. Please comment below, and I’ll randomly draw names on Saturday.

**I need to edit this to say I’ll be giving 4 copies away and will draw names on Friday. Β I think there are too many names already to wait until Saturday. Β Thank you all for the overwhelming response.**

    A Christian book for women I might actually read! : ) So tired of books/classes/etc that are through the lens of marriage, motherhood, roles, etc. Excited about your book, and appreciate your humility. I think I'd be terrified if I had a book being published…

  15. Rachael Starke January 3, 2013 at 4:52 am #

    Oh your/God's timing is so perfect. I've been fuming over a Facebook thread about why stress over homeschooling six kids is really about sinful attitudes and poor organization and not having enough joy….I need something more profitable to read. πŸ™‚ Can't wait. LOVED your Ephesians study – I really hope this one is one our women could do – they, ahem, we, ahem, I need it. πŸ™‚

  16. Bea January 3, 2013 at 6:20 am #

    I'd be happy to own this book!

  17. Tamie January 3, 2013 at 8:16 am #

  33. Ann Beaulieu January 3, 2013 at 3:09 pm #

    Hi Wendy,
    As a French Christian writier myself I can so understand what your saying here!!! People do somehow expect us as writers to have this all perfectly under control in our lives and mastered without flaws what so ever. Actually, for me anyways, I now realize that I write more for myself than anyone else because I am in such need of growing for God's Word and Christ transformation in my life. Congratulations on your new book and may God use it to bless may women.

  34. Doreen T. January 3, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    Can't wait to read the book!

  35. Rebekah Daphne January 3, 2013 at 3:29 pm #

  54. Pia January 3, 2013 at 10:53 pm #

    Just ordered one at Estore and woud like to win one to give it away!
    A good time to write that I am enriched by your regular blogging. Women's ministries have never appealed to me. Honestly, probably because of my own sinful attitudes. But the women's ministries that tell me I am a princess make me want to puke and the women's ministries that tell me to homeschool and bake bread make me want to go gluten-free. Your blogs are the closest I've ever come to being part of a “women's ministry.” Thank you!

  55. E. January 4, 2013 at 1:21 am #

    I'd love to read your new book, even as I finish your study on Ephesians and enjoy your blog posts. Congrats!

  56. Amy Brunton January 4, 2013 at 2:38 am #

    Wow. I think this would be a good book for me to read these days.
