Review By: Delana H. Stewart
Captivating by Stasi and John Eldredge is a must read for women and teenage daughters.
This book is geared to help us understand how much we matter to God, how much our heart and desires matter to Him.
Here are a few quotes from the book:
“Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dream. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the Beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child’s play. They are the secret to the feminine heart.”
“God has set within you a femininity that is powerful and tender, fierce and alluring. No doubt it has been misunderstood. Surely it has been assaulted. But it is there, your true heart, and it is worth recovering. You are captivating.”
“Aware of our deep failings, we pour contempt on our own hearts for wanting more. Oh, we long for intimacy and for adventure; we long to be the Beauty of some great story. But the desires set deep in our hearts seem like a luxury, granted only to those women who get their acts together.”
