Review of "The Virtuous Life of a Christ-Centered Wife" and a GIVEAWAY! Updated with winners!

A while back I stumbled upon a Facebook page called "Time-Warp Wife".  I immediately fell in love with the Facebook page as well as the blog run by New York Times Best-selling author, Darlene Schacht.  The "about" page for Time-Warp Wife on Facebook says "The purpose of my ministry is to encourage wives to love their husbands and children, be keepers of their home, and be virtuous and pure, so that God through His Holy Word would be glorified in our lives."  I have found this to be wonderfully accurate.  Darlene offers and shares encouragement and tips on being a Christ-centered woman, wife and/or mother whose primary focus is Christ, by which all families benefit.  I have found such inspiration through her page and often turn to it when I need a little boost.  She has been featured on other blogs and websites as well, including Kirk Cameron's! 

Recently, Darlene released a new ebook called "The Virtuous Life of a Christ-Centered Wife: 18 Powerful Lessons for Personal Growth".  This was right at the same time I was starting this blog.  She asked on her Facebook page if anyone would like to host a review and giveaway.  I jumped at the chance to share this amazing Christian woman's wisdom with my readers!

I was so excited to read this book and it did NOT disappoint!  Set up in a series of lessons on God-given virtues, such as trustworthiness, love, diligence and joyfulness, just to name a few, that conclude with a "SOAP" study method (scripture, observation, application, prayer), this book is ideal for not only personal study and growth but for small groups of women, who can encourage each other and grow together. 

My favorite part about the book is that it is written in such a wonderfully personal way that you can truly feel Darlene's heart in each page.  It is encouraging and supportive, with no judgement or condemnation.   It inspires every Christian woman to both reach deep into her heart and reach out to Christ to become the virtuous woman He designed us all to be!  This book is written for all of us, with our own individual struggles and this book gives the boost we need, through God's direction in His word, to fulfill the role He designed for us. 

I hope you will grab your own copy of Darlene's ebook, available on Amazon (don't worry, if you don't have a kindle you can download the free Kindle Reader from Amazon for your PC and/or mobile device).  Or you can enter to win one of the 3 copies I will be giving away by simply using the easy rafflecopter forms below!

  1. I would like to become more Christ-centered in my attitude towards my marriage.

  3. I have determined to read at least one great book a month. This one excites me.

  4. I just finished a Bible study in January about being a "Wife after God". I grew a lot in that month. I would love to read this as it is so important in my role as a wife and mother (working primarily for the goodness of the kingdom of God).
