    If by Amy Carmichael

    Set-Apart Femininity: God's Sacred Intent for Every Young Woman by Leslie Ludy
    In contrast to the shallow, selfish, pleasure seeking femininity found today, Set-Apart Femininity lays out a blueprint for life-changing, world altering femininity that is based on God's sacred call and purpose. This book calls young women to make an eternal impact on this world rather than indulge themselves in today's self-focused culture. Speaking forthrightly to the corruption of today's culture and its infiltration into the church, the message of this book drives deep into the heart of true set-apart femininity and the heart of God.

1. Blog Responsibly. Christian bloggers need to speak the truth in love.

2. Shut Your Ears. Exercising discretion in listening.

3. The Deeps. “Lord Jesus, give me a deeper repentance . . .”

4. A Wise Mother Guards Her Time.

5. Read this month’s issue of Challenging Femininity.

6. Young Moms Work For Free. “Between daycare and gas, my entire paycheck is gone.”

7. Healing From Abuse. One woman’s recovery from domestic violence.

8. Lower Wages, Lack of Job Opportunities Means More Americans Delaying ‘Adulthood’  ”In 2005, even before the current recession, roughly three in 10 white men (up to age 34) with a high school degree were not in school, in the military or at work.”   And, I might add, laziness and selfishness play a large part in delaying adulthood, too.

9. Insight Must Lead Us Toward Trust. “It is one thing to appreciate truth. It is quite another to trust it.”

10. Unconditionally Loving Our Children.
