Litfuse Review: Real Women: Leading with Proverbs 31 Values by: Lisa Troyer/Dawn Yoder

Real Women: Leading with Proverbs 31 Values
About the Book:
 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.

About the Authors:
Sometimes referred to by friends as the “singing executive,” wife, mom, radio personality, recording artist, speaker, and author Lisa Troyer finds herself heart-deep in activities that are changing lives forever. Her Circle of Friends women’s outreach, formed over a decade ago, is growing in all directions. No matter the outlet or the venue, Lisa uses her gift of encouragement, her influence, and her resources to open doors for women everywhere to discover their significance and belonging, whether with their neighbor, on the airwaves, or in the boardroom. She and her family currently live in Ohio.

My Review:
 The Proverbs 31 woman, who is she and how can we as women in 2014 measure up? Most women that have read about this mystery woman say that it is virtually impossible to live up to that standard. Authors, Lisa Troyer&Dawn Yoder have taken the Proverbs 31 woman and given us 10 key principles. Principles that we can use to apply to our everyday so that the Proverbs 31 woman is in fact an achievable goal.

 This very authoritative book is not just a book explaining the concept of this mystical Proverbs 31 woman but an actual resource to help us become this woman. As we work our way through the outline we will see that many of us already process much of what is outlined in scripture. There are questions at the end of each chapter that cause you to delve deeper in understanding and then there are steps that will allow you to follow through on what you learned in the previous pages.

 Living out this earthly existence is difficult enough maybe if we strive to be better the way God intended many will see the living Christ within us.
