The True Woman: The Beauty and Strength of a Godly Woman

By Susan Hunt

... Show All

Have you sensed God's call to change your world? Do you believe you can be one of those women who, by her virtue, wisdom, dignity, and faith, makes an impact in her home and community?

Maybe you've heard the call but weren't sure how to maximize the opportunities God has given you. Maybe society's definition of "true womanhood"—claiming it's about reproductive rights, doing things "your way," assuming the power, and gaining control of your life—has clouded your view of who you are in Christ. Or maybe you've just been waiting for a little encouragement and inspiration. In any case, author Susan Hunt says, "Start now." And let this book be your encourager and companion.

Through it you will hear how other Christian women are reflecting Christ despite difficult and sometimes tragic circumstances—and how you can reflect Him too. You'll explore what the Bible has to say about your mission and your identity as a true woman of God. You'll learn how to broaden your sphere of influence in the everyday. And you'll discover how to further develop a biblically shaped and Spirit-driven character that people are drawn to.

Begin today not only to draw closer to God, but also to deepen your impact in all you do. This exhortation to biblical womanhood will set your heart on fire and excite you about the unique opportunity you have as a woman of God. An opportunity to make an impact again and again for eternity.

“Susan Hunt is a friend and mentor to many, including myself. In The True Woman, she comes alongside women to encourage and equip them with a theological framework to live out their womanhood to the glory of God. May Susan’s exhortations here equip another generation of women to reflect their redemption in their home, church, work, and community.”
Christina Fox, Women’s Ministry Advisor, Presbyterian Churches of America; retreat speaker; author, A Heart Set Free; Closer Than a Sister; and Idols of a Mother’s Heart

“‘True (adjective): genuine, faithful, steadfast, consistent, and loyal.’ If you desire to understand these characteristics of your true God and long for these words to be a descriptor of your life, then you have picked up the right book. Susan Hunt courageously unpacks the multifaceted dimensions of the calling of a true woman. I have seen firsthand how this book has stood the test of time, not only in its content but also in the contours of the life of its author.”
Karen Hodge, Coordinator of Women’s Ministries, Presbyterian Church in America; coauthor, Transformed

“Certain books stand the test of time and serve as guidebooks for the next generation. Susan Hunt’s The True Woman is such a book. A classic ‘must-read.’ Bold, countercultural, and more relevant than ever.”
Mary A. Kassianauthor, Growing Grateful

“In this book, Susan Hunt articulates profound biblical truths clearly, from a heart nurtured for many years under the authority of Scripture. You will be challenged to think more biblically about God’s redemptive calling and to become a ‘cultivator of true community.’ These are the marks of the true woman—a beacon of hope and faith. As the wife of a minister for over forty years, I am thankful for this invaluable resource.”
Karen Loritts, speaker; coauthor, Your Marriage Today . . . and Tomorrow
