May Book Highlight: A Jewel in His Crown

A bestseller! Women are becoming increasingly weary and discouraged and are thus losing sight of their real value as daughters of the King. A Jewel In His Crown examines how a woman's view of her worth deeply affects her relationships.

What keeps us captive to disappointment, disillusionment, and despair? All we need to be women of the kingdom we already have in our possession. All of those external things that can be wrong in life -negative relationship, bad habits, dishonesty, debts, fear and anger- are reflections of a much deeper issue. It is time for us to see ourselves as God Almighty sees us.
Time to stop allowing others to dictate our value and worth. Time for us to take off the masks that disguise the truth about ourselves and to get real with God. He knows all about our hurt and pain. He knows that we struggle when we have to wait on Him. He also knows that it is during our times of struggling and waiting and wondering that we develop character that will last for a lifetime. There is a big plan at work that we can't see right now. According to Romans 8:28, God is working everything together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Can you believe that?
