review Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together
Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel TogetherI was so excited to receive this book to read and review. Nancy Leigh DeMoss made such an impact in women's lives with her books Lies Women Believe and others. For me personally, her book Choosing Gratitude really made a difference in my life when I first read it. In fact, I am currently rereading that very book and making my own book study out of it. Now that Nancy is Mrs. Wolgemuth, I was excited to hear that she had penned yet another book.
It seems natural that Nancy, who has helped thousands of women through her ministry and writings, pen a book such as Adorned which focuses on the Biblical relationship women should have amongst each other. Using such passages as Titus 2, Nancy explains how younger Christian  women should learn from older, more experienced saints and how those older women should invest in younger lives.
I would say this book is especially helpful for older women (of all ages!) in encouraging them to share wisdom with younger ones. Of course this book is directed towards women of all ages. I loved how Nancy opened the book, using a description of her wedding- how it looked and how she felt and the love Robert has for her as a picture of the gospel. It is too hard to explain here, but Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth is has been so gifted in writing that the reader understands and benefits from the Biblical wisdom she shares.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.

Known for her wisdom, warmth, and knowledge of Scripture, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth has encouraged millions through her books, radio programs, and conferences. Now she’s back with a legacy work on Titus 2 and its powerful vision for women.

From Nancy:

"Cross-generational community between women is the biblical antidote for being chronically, hopelessly overwhelmed, as so many of us are.

When older women come out of their protective cocoons to invest themselves in the lives of younger women, whole families and churches feel the blessing. When young moms and singles widen their peer groups to include women who have already braved the same rapids and lived to tell about it, both sides of the relationship are strengthened and grow. We all, in different ways and in different seasons, need to be on both the giving and receiving end of this life-to-life process.

So I invite you to join me as we look to God’s Word for His perspective on the charactercommitments, and attitudes of godly women—and His prescribed process for helping us live out these virtues not only today, but from generation to generation."
