    I read this for a Bible study through my class at church. At first I was extremely skeptical as I anticipated the author would present antiquated notions as to how women are to behave and be 'lesser' than the men in their lives...all backed by scripture. I am happy to say I was proven wrong. The Resolution for Women focuses on how women are to be present, committed, and focused in their lives today. How we are responsible for the welfare of our families and community not only because we are women I read this for a Bible study through my class at church.

How we are responsible for the welfare of our families and community not only because we are women but also because we are Christians. (Shirer speaks only to women in this book - there is a companion book for men - so when I say 'we' are responsible for our families...please understand men are as well, it's just not covered here.) This book challenges me to be a better wife, mother, and woman who walks with intention and raises my awareness of how each decision I make creates a ripple effect. The Resolution for Women is challenging, thought provoking, and not always comfortable but I believe what I learned, combined with prayer and hard work, will continue to change my life - and the lives of those I love.

    Like The Resolution for Men, I'm declaring this book an absolute must read for women and young women. Today's culture has completely muddied the definitions of husband and wife, father and mother, which are completely contrary to the definitions the Bible lays out. As Christian moms and wives, we need to have these boundaries between the culture's definition and God's definition clearly set apart from one another--and choose to follow and implement and live out God's. When we start making up our Like The Resolution for Men, I'm declaring this book an absolute must read for women and young women. Today's culture has completely muddied the definitions of husband and wife, father and mother, which are completely contrary to the definitions the Bible lays out. As Christian moms and wives, we need to have these boundaries between the culture's definition and God's definition clearly set apart from one another--and choose to follow and implement and live out God's. When we start making up our own rules, we open up a whole can of worms that can spell disaster for our children and our families. Every woman, and every young woman who has visions of a glorious wedding and a healthy, happy household in her mind, needs to read this book to have God's desires for wifehood and motherhood clearly in our minds. "God...has brought this book into your life for this particular season. He is calling you to make the hard yet necessary decision to face these chapters and the themes they present with a strong dose of courage, a prodigious amount of willingness to look inward, not outward, and a steady confidence in His Spirit to empower you to follow through on these resolves, regardless of how little your spouse or others may seem compelled to follow your example." (page 4) I found the author's voice engaging and her stories and anecdotes poignant and vivid. Her focus being on the building up and encouraging of readers to view themselves and their roles as mothers and wives in a different light--in God's light--and strives to help us "stand as a living, walking, eating, breathing example of what God's grace can do with a woman He has set apart...." I would have liked to have seen more Scriptural parallels and analogies to drive home the message of the Bible on these particular areas. The teaching is definitely there, but it would have been good to have more Scriptural back-up. I know she was trying to keep the lessons short, which was good, but I felt it would have helped tremendously with her overall message, if she took a passage (eg: 1 Peter 2:9-10 on page 53) and explored it in relation to the message of the chapter. It's a completely eye-opening experience to look at value, self-worth, motherhood, wifehood...all the roles that God has called us to from His perspective rather than the one society claims is right. Concepts like submission turn into issues of love and respect, rather than abuse and domination. There is no room for abuse and domination in God's version of family and marriage, and yet many in our culture, including many Christians still hold to this definition. God's message isn't based on domination and subjugation, but on love and grace. Many Christian denominations and world religions have taught for centuries that women are second-rate citizens not worthy of anything and use Scripture to back that up--when in fact Christ sets a completely different standard. I believe both husbands and wives should read both books (The Resolution for Men and the Resolution for Women) so that they can be firmly grounded in God's purpose for that role in their lives, and so that they can keep each other accountable. The future of our marriage and our families depend on husbands and wives who are devoted to God and to each other, and to their God-given roles and purpose.

    A basic self-help book disguised as a Christian living book. Some interesting stories and visuals with occasional scripture verses provided to back up Shirer’s points. An easy read - it had to be since I read the Spanish version with little need for me to consult vocabulary or grammar resources (so like an upper elementary school reading level?). And probably a quick read too if read consistently - I took a meandering 5+ years to finish it.

    I was expecting this book to be a bit superficial because it was commissioned by a movie. I also had low expectations for the depth of the writing since it is covering so many different topics. I was wrong on both counts. This is excellent insightful material, great for a small group study (our community group women are reading this together for our summer book group).

    This book was such a huge amazing help. My husband has been reading the men's version so I challenged myself. I was happy to see I was doing good in a few and I was glad I read it with an open mind and heart. God helped me learn so many things and I felt wiser upon completion and I am looking forward to reading it again and to continue to grow and be the best wife, mother, daughter, and follower of Christ I can be. I am definitely going to look up some of the other works by this author! This book was such a huge amazing help. My husband has been reading the men's version so I challenged myself.

I resolve to take the resolutions included in this book and apply it to my life. Whether it's writing, working, or spending time with my family I want to be a woman of God who is content, gracious, and authentic in who I am destined to be.

After just finishing up the book, I am amazed and excited at how this book has caused me to re-evaluate the way I think about some things in my life. So much to the point that I think it will result in life changes. For me, this is significant. Shirer presented the material in a personal way so that every reader could relate. My only critique is that I wish she would have stuck with the KJV. The other versions just do not have the same influence. I did not agree with every sentence in the book, but the majority I thought was fantastic. Worth the read!

    I wanted to like this book. I really did. My then-fiance and I purchased the his and hers versions of these books as part of our premarital preparation. And while his book focused on things like integrity or strength of character, mine focused on stuff like interior design. No joke, at one point, the author talks about the process of decorating her "writing loft" (aside: TOTALLY relatable to the common public, right?) and she goes on and on about a tassel -- A TASSEL -- for several paragraphs, i I wanted to like this book.

I'm not making this up. About two-thirds of the way through this book, I got so fed up, angry, and frustrated with this unrelatable and useless drivel that I literally threw the book across the room.

    I enjoyed this book. I wasn't necessarily into the whore signing resolutions thing, but it teaches a lot about life and a relationship with God. It helps you see differences between you and your spouse and helps see what changes to make when raising a child. I enjoyed this book.

    3.5: I've wanted to read something by this author for a while. She spoke truth bluntly, not allowing for a lot of excuses, which felt like a little too much at times, but with some time to process, I'm coming to see how valuable that is for me. 3.5: I've wanted to read something by this author for a while.

    This book was written to accompany the movie Courageous. There were a lot of good things in this book. However, I feel like the author probably tried to cover too much in one book. A lot of the points felt very vague. Also, she clearly didn't have much to say on some points, and it felt like she was just covering them because they had to be in this particular book. I usually really like Priscilla Shirer's books because they seem to go deep and the topics are well studied and presented. But this This book was written to accompany the movie Courageous.

    I read this book as part of a bible study through my church. Shirer combined personal stories with biblical principles and scriptures that make it clear the bible is relevant for all of us today. Each resolution is broken into subchapters, with questions following each, for the reader to discover how that specific resolution has or can be lived out. GREAT discussion topics for a study group or book club. I intend to go back thru each resolution in my own to dig into each a bit deeper.

    I enjoy Christian books that have reflection questions after each chapter because it helps me to process what I've read and make it applicable to my life. That in itself makes the material more memorable and helps my spiritual growth and understanding of the scriptures.

Priscilla Schirer reaches out to every woman in every stage of life so this is not for Mom's only or Wives only, but she is great at directing the lessons to wherever you may be in life. This is a book that I read with a pen and highlighter because there are lots of points that I want to look back on. I have many favorite spots in this book but one of them is when she says "Jesus didn't just preach a gospel; He lived one." in the chapter 'How Do You Heal an Unbroken Heart'. For those of us who strive to live a Christ-like life, this chapter reminded me how Jesus paid attention to his surroundings. He was aware of people who were hurting and he moved with compassion and helped them in a tangible way, always. What amazed me most is that word Compassion -- it's a deep, gut-wrenching reaction and it affected him physically and moved him to help, serve and do his Father's will. Great book!!!

The writing is filled with great illustrations and plenty of scripture references. Why not a higher rating? While the book started out strong, I felt the final few chapters didn't have the same emotional impact. Not because the topics were unimportant or irrelevant either. I'm not sure what went wrong for me, but ending on a lower note than the book started with affected my rating. I still recommend this for anyone who feels like they need guidance for their spiritual journey. It's not really a Bible study, but it has the potential to spark interest in different study topics.

    Illuminating! I read this book as part of an assignment. However, as I read each chapter... and felt conviction, the book began to blossom into a healing balm that encouraged me to move closer to God. The scriptural recipes outlined in this book was just the soup I needed to build up my integrity, monitor my character, and encourage me to be a better woman of Grace. Thank you Priscilla!

    I got through about three chapters before I had to put it down. I like Shirer's book about fervent prayer and thought I'd like this as well. Some of her views and mine don't ally and I just got too stuck on that to be able to sit and consider the good points she was making. Perhaps I'll try again some day though I doubt it.

    I enjoyed the book, just some of her points of view throws me off a bit... or perhaps I wasn't quite ready to hear it since she supports all her views points biblically :)... But, one thing I have to say for sure everytime I read one of her books I grow in some way either spiritually or mentally so i really don't see myself ever putting down her books..

    Read this book with a community group at my church. The resolution for women is the female companion for the movie Courageous. There are some real practical lessons for Christian women. Some things I struggled with especially the Biblical femininity section but as a whole I found it helpful and motivating. It's definitely something better read as a group rather than solitary. 2.5/5 Read this book with a community group at my church.

    Life Changing This book is awesome and really challenged almost every fiber of my being. It allowed me to see myself in the mirror and I have realized that I have a lot of areas where I can improve. I have taken this book to heart and have started making some realistic changes. I am looking forward to the continued growth.

    This was a gift from a friend. I appreciated Shirer’s writing. She didn’t write to overwhelm, but to encourage in gentle ways. I liked the religious angle because it is really the only way we, as women, can realize our true strength, abilities and purpose. This book is one I will need to reference often.

    Challenging read on the aspects of the life we are to live as Christian women. I enjoyed Ms. Shirer’s commitment to back resolutions with “homework” and supporting scriptures. Personally, I found the sections on loving my husband and children the areas I most need to work on. The section “Faithfully His” with 5 pages of scriptures to support this chapter is truly noteworthy.

    Very well written, engaging, and brings to light many interesting points in a fresh way. Can be a long or short read, and each chapter is self contained, but still builds from one to the next. Well worth reading and rereading.

    After a long reprieve I decided to pick this book up when I was struggling with life’s daily demands. It makes you look within yourself to dig a little deeper to know how to be the best woman/wife.
