Amazon blurb:

New from bestselling author Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

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:

Woman to woman. Older to younger. Day to day. Life to life.
This is God’s beautiful plan.

The Titus 2 model of older women living out the gospel alongside younger women is vital for us all to thrive. It is mutually strengthening, glorifies God, and makes His truth believable to our world.

Imagine older women investing themselves in the lives of younger women, blessing whole families and churches. Imagine young wives, moms, and singles gaining wisdom and encouragement from women who’ve been there and have found God’s ways to be true and good. Imagine all women—from older women to young girls—living out His transforming gospel together, growing the entire body of Christ to be more beautiful.

This is Christian community as God designed it. Read this book and take your relationships to new depths, that your life might find its fullest meaning as you adorn the gospel of Christ.

My review:

I really love this book. But I knew that I would love it.  I’ve read a lot of Nancy’s previous books and have enjoyed them all.  She’s bold, truthful, bible centered, and bottom line-esque in a gentle and humble way. This book is no different.

I suppose it’s the phase of life in which I find myself now that makes me want to pick it right back up again and start over.  This book is encouraging and practical for people like me – in their later years (50+) with adult children but still wanting to fill a role in the church body.  It’s pretty clear our role is an important one, but one that often gets passed by because we think no one wants it. Not true.

But this book isn’t just for the grandmother aged ladies.  It really should be read by old and young alike.  Living in a generation of young folks that seem to have all the answers at their fingertips, the bible is clear that younger women learn about home and family life from the older christian ladies around them.  And again, this book brings that to light for both older and younger.

Nancy’s got a true desire to speak truth from scripture. I appreciated her wisdom on marriage, family, etc.,  and trusted it even before she had experienced it herself because she centered it all on what the bible has to say. She still does. And that’s why I highly recommend this book for women of all ages.

I received this book from the publisher to review. All thoughts are my own. I was not required to review on Amazon.
