Book Description:

The need for courageous, faithful women has never been greater than it is today. As we draw nearer to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, we are faced with temptations on every side. But we can prevail as we gain true strength from living the gospel.

In Women of Strength, Tristi Pinkston shares inspiring stories, as well as insightful quotes from Church leaders, to demonstrate the power and influence of righteous women. This book invites women everywhere to deepen their relationship with the Savior, rely on the guidance of the Holy Ghost, and learn what it really means to be strong.

My Review:
 Day to day life struggles can really pull us down. Keeping up with the kids, our jobs, church callings, yard work, laundry, cleaning, etc. make us tired. Being able to review Tristi Pinkston's new book, Women of Strength, was the breath of fresh air I needed right now. I needed to be reminded of who I am, and how important I really am in this world and in my children's lives.

The 140 pages of Women of Strength are powerfully packed with messages that will make you think, make you thankful, and encouraged. Some of my favorite chapter titles(Out of the 14 chapters) were:
-Divine Identity
-Strength in Parenting
-Strength in Keeping the Commandments
-Strengths in Talents
-Becoming Strong 

There is one passage I wanted to quote to you from the chapter entitled, "Strength in Our Divine Identity". It brought tears to my eyes and filled me with a sense of peace and understanding.

"Sometimes we look around at all of the creations of His hands, and wonder if we really do matter...Surely we must get lost in the crowd and our feature become a blur. That's what we think, but in reality, we are as precious to our Father as if He only had one child...He not only knows our names, but He knows our thoughts and fears, our strengths and weaknesses, our talents and capabilities,and He knows what we can become, often when we don't have any idea.

 If I could grant wishes, if I were some kind of good fairy and could sprinkle sparkly dust and give you anything, I would most want to give you the knowledge that you are a daughter of God. When you really understand that, you will find miracles in your life. Your inner peace will be unbounded. Your confidence will burst out of you. Your real beauty will shine forth. A woman who knows who she is? Incredible. Amazing."...pages 37-38 Women of Strength

Tristi's writing is so personal in this book, as if she is my best friend helping me feel better about myself. If I had read nothing else in the book, just reading these pages increased my confidence and love for myself. I am grateful for writers like Tristi, who so beautifully express what is hiding there in my heart. Women of Strength will become a guide for many women like me, who need a boost, and reminders of their potential.
