I am so glad I have found this book again!!! Sep 7, 2006
I am so excited to have found this book! I am not the type of person to read a whole book. I start reading it then put it down and never pick it up again. This is the first book that I could not get enough of. I got it as a present years ago and lost it when I moved. I learned so much on how to be a Godly woman and a great wife to my husband. This book teaches how to look Godly and be more mature and organized so that God can use you as effectively as possible. You will not regret getting this book. It is so down to earth and practical, yet teaches Godly principles. Thank you Anne for writing such a wonderful book!
LOVED IT!!!!! Aug 19, 2005
Disciplines of the Beautiful Women holds true even in today's time. If you are a busy career woman or a stay at home mom her tips just on organizing your closet are worth it's weight in gold. Yet this book is so much more than just time management and how to take care of yourself including your appearance. We all know that we get a better response from our spouse and others if we put the time into our looks. Not to mention how we feel better about ourselves in doing so. There is just a small section with her tips on how she does so without vanity and lots of time involved. That way we have the time to work on "the inside" and get to what path God has for us or the the science experiment you may have found under your couch cushion courtesy of your kids. The greatest treasure in this book I found to be her "notebook" (wonderful tips and much more than a daily planner) and how she writes down her prayers. When you go back over some of your prayers from the past you can giggle as you see how much you have grown and how the Lord is working in your life. Plus her filing system is a brilliant idea. She never misrepresents in her title. It is indeed a discipline to commit to the methods yet she simplifies her time tested methods for us. Very rewarding and easy read. Just a note that there is a study guide in the back that you may want to do along with each chapter instead of waiting until you read the entire book. She uses her life as a Pastors Wife,busy mom and public speaker for her examples and how these things help her with time and just enrich her life as it has so many others that have used her methods. Not to make anyone feel inferior or less than a devoted Christian than she. It worked for her so she is just sharing it with others. Most people that have read this book say the same thing. "It changed my life."
Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman Sep 16, 2003
Warning: If you are not a Bible-reading, born-again Christian you will find this book extremely difficult to read, let alone "grasp." It is the personal experiences of a woman whose life is devoted to teaching the Bible, and how she organizes her life to that end. The constant biblical references, citing chapter and verse several times on a page, cannot be ignored or skipped over. I tried to do just that and it was impossible. If you are a person who studies the Bible daily, belongs to a Bible study group, or wants to set up your own study group, and organize your entire life accordingly ...then there is no better book for you. But if you are just a poor slob who wants to learn how to discipline/organize your life, look elsewhere.
Hate to give a bad review but this book really earned it!! Mar 21, 2003
Anne Ortlund seems like a wonderful Godly woman but a lot of the focus of this book is about getting the outside looking beautiful. I was looking for tips on how to be beautiful on the inside and she is telling me to cream my body each night so it's soft for my husband's touch. A lot of focus on being organized and keeping a clean house but not much on becoming beautiful inside.
There's is none like it!!! Nov 7, 2002
I read this book just before I got married, and again during my pregnancy, learning so much more each time that I've gone out and bought about twenty copies each time I heard a girlfriend struggling with discipline in herself and her home. This is not just a book, but a great and wonderful tool. Thank you Anne Ortlund!!!!
