I wrote a book that I wish someone had written for me.
A book to help me at each transition, to encourage me when I need it, to empower me to be the woman God created me to be in all ways. . .
I offer you that book. And in doing so, I invite you into my journey of transformation.
From the Back Cover:
“Christian womanhood. What does it mean? When does it happen—at a certain age, status, or maturity? How do we know we’re no longer girls? And when we’ve figured that out, how will others know to call us “woman” rather than “girl”? Christian women don’t usually get a rite of passage in which they are named “woman.” Seeing this need, Amy Davis Abdallah created such a rite, and this book accompanies it.
No need to be in her rite of passage, however, to name yourself “woman.” Read this book and then sit down with some friends to talk about it over tea, coffee, and/or chocolate. Let The Book of Womanhood create a path through the confusion through its flexible framework of finding identity through developing relationship with God, self, others, and creation.
Amy writes simply as one perhaps further along in her journey of womanhood, and she doesn’t write alone. She includes the stories of biblical women, of friends young and old, and even more. The diverse voices come together as a cloud witnesses—encouraging us in our individual journeys.
Read for empowerment. Read for transformation. Read. And become the woman of God you were created to be.”
“Amy has artfully constructed this rite of passage for women in order to help women understand and embrace what it means to be a woman and to celebrate the beautiful and delicate complexities that make us uniquely feminine. The Book of Womanhood is an outstanding resource for families, churches, and colleges.”
Wanda Walborn, Director of Spiritual Formation, Nyack College
“Expecting to be married with children in her twenties, life unfolded in unanticipated ways for Amy Davis Abdallah. These became opportunities to journey with God toward self-discovery and empowerment. This book builds wholeness in all its relationships. For these reasons, The Book of Womanhood is hard to put down!”
