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.
Using Titus 2, where the older women are told to teach the younger women, Nancy illustrates just how important it is.
As with all her books, Nancy does a wonderful job bringing to life what living out the gospel together looks like.
We're not suppose to go at it alone. Mentoring is an important part of the Christian women's life. Whether as a mentor or being mentored, these relationships help strengthen our Christian walk. Using her own experiences to show how important it is, Nancy encourages the older women to invest their time into younger women, and encourages the younger women to embrace the wisdom from the older.
Not only is this book well written, but the subject of intergenerational mentoring is a subject I've rarely seen but is highly needed in the Christian community.
This isn't a light reading, but rather a Scripture saturated study. I highly recommend this book!
This is such a wonderful book to pick up, since it brings to light the mentoring relationship of the Titus 2 woman. I love that it digs deep and brings up so many thought provoking things, like the importance of finding a mentor, since someone will influence us, so it's important to choose who rather than letting main stream media or your peers decide for you. I think this book would be an excellent one to study as a group, though it was also wonderful to read alone.
While reading this book I felt as if I was sitting across the table from Nancy with a cup of steaming tea before each of us and an honest, down-to-earth conversation between us. The main idea of the book comes from Titus 2 as Paul directs Titus with instructs for women. Older women are to mentor younger woman and younger woman are to grow in godliness as they learn from older women. She talks about community, living lives pointing to God so that we can all adorn (make beautiful) the gospel of Jesus. Her words are practical, gracious, and spoken from her heart. I appreciated this book (thank you, Nancy!) and plan to pass it on to other women in my own church so that we can all work more effectively at adorning the gospel.
