I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own.
Author and Dr. Katherine Hutchinson-Hayes take readers of faith on an intimate journey to discover the femininity of God’s armor in the book “God’s Little Black Dress for Women: How to Put on the Full Armor of God Without Losing Your Femininity”.
Women want to be spiritually stylish, but wearing the armor of God sounds clunky and unattractive. In “Gods’ Little Black Dress for Women: How to Put on the Full Armor of God Without Losing Your Femininity”, we discover how God tailor-makes a “little black dress of truth” that is battle ready for every occasion. Each of the 12 chapters is followed by a “Teaching Highlights” and “Participants’ Guide” complete with memory verse and prayer focus scriptures. Also included is an excellent “Leaders’ Discussion Guide”, “Small Group Leadership Guidelines”, “The ABC’s of a Small Group Covenant” and much more! Don’t miss the “Memorable Quotes” on page 179!
This is definitely a well-written and thought-provoking read for faithful readers. The balance of personal storytelling with introspective discussions of faith was well represented in the author’s work, and the interactive part of the guide made this book feel more personal and connected to the reader themselves.
The attention to detail the author gives to this book in regard to the biblical verses and the way the author was able to find ways of incorporating femininity and female empowerment into the lessons that each chapter taught were great to see. The importance of making more room for positive interactions for women and supporting women in general when it comes to faith and religion as a whole is so important in this modern age, and seeing the author’s work incorporate this into the lessons showed through her powerful experiences and memories.
Thoughtful, enlightening, and memorable, author and Dr. Katherine Hutchinson-Hayes’s “God’s Little Black Dress for Women” is a must-read nonfiction book for faith and religious readers looking to find positive feminism engagement for modern-day Christianity. The heart and encouragement readers will find in this book and the interactive nature of the book will resonate with readers greatly. If you haven’t yet, be sure to grab your copy today!
