Captivating by John & Stasi Eldredge - Book Review

Summary:  This book was written by a husband and wife team to help women of all ages and stages. 
"You are a woman to your soul, to the very core of your being....The desires that God has placed into our hearts are clues as to who we really are and the role that we are meant to play....We think you'll find that every woman in her heart of hearts longs for three things:  to be romanced, to play an irreplacable role in a great adventure, and to unveil beauty.  That's what makes a woman come alive."

Reactions:  What an amazing book!  It really touched something in me and helped me realize how much shame I was carrying around needlessly.  The Eldredges take it back to the very beginning and put a whole new light on Eve - one I had never thought of or realized before.  I always thought of the apple incident when I thought of Eve, but no longer.  Eve was created as a perfect woman to complete man and the world!  What an empowering feeling!  They also encourage women to find, or should I say dig out, their inner dreams that have been buried for years.  What a wonderful, life changing book.  I would recommend this book to any woman.

The opinions I have expressed are my own.
