My Thoughts About the Book:
I’ve pretty much highlighted and dog earred most of my copy of Real Women Leader with Proverbs 31 Values by Lisa Troyer and Dawn Yoder. I am always on the look out for books that are geared for women in leadership, specifically with a Biblical worldview, which to be quite honest there aren’t as many of these books as you might think.
Real Women Leading is packed with 10 chapters on values that are tied in with women from the Bible, which is a great new way to look at these values for women today. By partnering each value with a woman from the Bible you are able to walk through the pages of history while paralleling with what goes on for women today.
The 10 values are as follows;
1) Value of Understanding People – The Woman at the well
2) Value of Forgiveness – The Woman taken in adultery
3) Value of Responsibility – Martha
4) Value of Attitude – Ruth
5) Value of Resolving Conflict – Euodia and Synthyche
6) Value of Restraint – Abigail
7) Value of Honesty – Sapphira
8) Value of Planning – Lydia
9) Value of Generosity – The Widow and Mary of Bethany
10) Value of Influence – Esther
Which means there is pretty much something for every woman in a position of leadership to learn from. Lisa and Dawn even take it a step further by having a section called the IT FACTOR in which they help you to dig deeper and really look at what you’ve learned and help you to process it in your everyday life.
About the book:
With Proverbs 31 values.
Today’s marketplace is not always a “values-friendly” environment. Business leaders Lisa Troyer and Dawn Yoder show you that you can live and thrive in a “valueless” workplace when you live by biblical values and principles.
Real Women: Leading with Proverbs 31 Values is a must-have leadership resource for today’s Christian woman. Written by women in the marketplace, Real Women cultivates biblical truth, credible relationship development, and practical application into everyday life through ten foundational principles. Once women embrace these ten principles, they will soon discover the multiple attributes of the Proverbs 31 woman in today’s marketplace and learn practical ways to implement the wisdom from that timeless Scripture passage.
Women will be encouraged to develop their God-given gifts and talents in the marketplace as they live out the principles that invite others to embrace the equality-inspiring values they live by. Knowing that we are not the end users of the gospel message, the Proverbs 31 leader will find the initiative to inspire the upcoming generation to view womanhood as a gift and continue the learning process that will impact generations to come.
