Maybe discipline seems like a hard word to you—implying nothing but challenge and duty. Yet most of us see the value in cultivating spiritual disciplines, and we long to be more consistent in our relationship with God, even in the midst of our busy lives.
Combining biblical teaching, poignant stories, and insightful reflection questions, Barbara Hughes explores 15 vital disciplines in this classic book—helping us to mature as godly Christian women and giving meaningful shape to our lives.

I have thoroughly enjoyed (and been convicted!) by this book. It is well-written and covers all the areas that we should desire to be growing in. It is helpful for young moms to set the goal right from the start but it’s still helpful for me with children who are just starting to leave the nest.
I bought 2 copies at Christmas for my 2 friends that I know desire to grow in Christ and they both have had nothing but positive feedback. I think it’s a must have for any woman desiring to grow in godliness but absolutely essential for all women who are getting married. I just cannot say enough about this wonderful book. 🙂

Disciplines of a Godly Woman was a recommendation from a personal Godly mentor, and now is a daily blessing which I’m thankful for that I took the recommendation. Although it’s not laid out in a ‘daily’ fashion, I portion it to what I can read during my devotion time each morning. It’s organized well with useful themes/chapters with verses, thoughts and questions to ponder at each chapter’s end.

I have really been challenged lately in my lack of discipline in my spiritual life. I have also been surprised at my lack of knowledge in certain parts of this area. I’m not certain why it isn’t taught on a regular basis in our churches or ministries, but I really wish it was. Since I knew I needed some extra guidance and study in this area, I was thrilled to see a book specifically on this topic and just for women. It was exactly what I needed to read.
This book wasn’t a “make me feel good” book. It was challenging and there were parts of it that I wasn’t really looking forward to doing. Like a good exercise program, it’s sometimes hard to actually lace up those tennis shoes. If found that same problem was true when it came to spiritual disciplines. It requires time and for those of us who are busy (really…who isn’t these days…), we have lost the respect for silence and mediation and contemplation that we need to have to help further deepen our relationship with God. The book really required me to be honest with myself.
