Review by Orville G. Brown:
By the time I got to page 20 of this book, I was making a mental list of all the people I wanted to buy copies for. I didn’t really need it myself, you see, because I was already confident of my position as a daughter of the King. However, as I got further into it, I discovered areas of my life where I do need some work in recognizing my worth and establishing confidence.
This is a practical handbook to teach anyone how to confront any situation, any person, any circumstance in a positive way, with total confidence and poise. It is based on sound Biblical doctrine. We are to be a light set on a hill, and one who follows the practical and lovingly put forth advice in Ms Clark’s book need no longer hide her light.
I wholly recommend this book to anyone who needs a boost in self-esteem.
Review by Barbara Arent: I wish Becoming a Woman of Worth had been available when I was facing divorce after 18 years of marriage. I have since come to realize I was in textbook depression with a non-existent self-worth. While reading the book, I often nodded my head in agreement with the author.
Ms. Clark uses straight forward, no nonsense descriptions of the signs and side effects of low self-worth. At the end of each chapter are exercises designed to help you pick yourself up and become the person you desire to be. It has the touch of velvet in an iron glove. The chapters are short and well written. There is repetition throughout but this just drives home how low self-worth affects every area of one’s life.
My advice is to read straight through and mark the parts where you exclaim ‘oh my’ or ‘ouch’. Then, review each section slowly looking up scripture references and doing the exercises listed at the chapter’s end.
Well worth reading.
