Item description for The Christ-Centered Woman: Finding Balance in a World of Extremes by Kimberly Dunnam Reisman...
Overview Christian women must respond to many callings--those of family and home, work and colleagues, ministry and discipleship. In this insightful guide, Kimberly Dunnam Reisman confronts the daily chaos of competing demands from a new perspective. She asks not "How do I juggle my responsibilities?" but "How do I make choices that reflect my relationship with Christ and Christ's direction for my life?" The Christ-Centered Woman identifies barriers to balanced living and reveals how being centered in the Savior can help us contemplate, sort, and prioritize our callings. Through it all we come to experience Christ as Rock, Solace, and Guide and find him the calm center from which we can wisely navigate the responsibilities of our lives.
Publishers Description Women respond to many callings -- those of family and home, work and colleagues, and ministry and discipleship. Dunnam Reisman, a working mother of three, explores how to respond from a calm center rather than from frustration and exhaustion. The author suggests that readers work from a Christ-centeredness that asks "How do I make choices that reflect my relationship with Christ?" rather than, "How can I juggle my many responsibilities?" By unmasking dangerous stereotypes and common traps many women fall into, Dunnam Reisman offers women ways to identify their true selves as disciples and explains how to place Christ at the center of their lives. Not just another how-to-get-organized book, The Christ-Centered Woman helps readers contemplate and prioritize their callings.

Practical, insightful, and interesting May 29, 2007
I could definitely relate to Kimberly, the author of this book. Women are faced with so many choices, and guilt or remorse regardless of which way they turn. (Why is it that dads can have careers and families without a second thought, but moms cannot?) This book reminds us to put our relationship with Christ first, not our kids, husbands, careers, or anything else. If we put Christ first, then everything else will fall into place.
Finding Balance Oct 30, 2001
The Christ-Centered Woman : Finding Balance in a World of Extremes is a great book to help women achieve spiritual centeredness. It is a wake up call to women who are wearing various hats, but are neglecting the one role that is important--fellowship with God. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a comfort for me during a very stressful time. If you are a woman being pulled in every direction, trying to please everyone, you should buy this book. It will help you reflect on what is truly important, without neglecting who you really are.
A good, practical tool for everyday living Aug 22, 2000
This book gets right to the point, that being a christian woman is a choice we make and a struggle every day. It points out that the world around us does not flow with christian values. This book teaches women how to keep the spirit of God alive in everyday living. A good read.
