Captivating, Expanded Edition (John & Stasi Eldredge)
Sometime between the dreams of your youth and yesterday’s to-do list, something precious has been lost: your priceless femininity.
God has set within you a femininity that is powerful, tender, and fierce. No doubt it has been misunderstood, but it is there, and it is worth recovering. In this updated and expanded edition of their runaway bestseller, John and Stasi Eldredge vulnerably share their story and show you how to set your heart free and embrace life as a woman who is truly captivating.
The mystery of the feminine heart was meant to be a good thing, a source of joy. But all too often, it becomes a source of shame. We almost universally feel that we are too much or not enough.
This book combines timeless scripture with honest, heartfelt stories from women who have been there, too, giving you the encouragement you need to:
- Discover the glorious design of women that God originally intended
- Understand how Jesus restores the feminine heart
- Heal the trauma in your story
- Embrace the inherent power, freedom, and beauty that you already possess
As we grow older and our dreams are slowly pushed aside, we’re told that we have to settle for a life of efficiency and performance, striving to be the women we’re told that we ought to be and still feeling like we’re failing. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Let Captivating help you discover the woman you were meant to be.
