God's Leading Lady by T.D. Jakes Feb 6, 2007
I loaned this to my friend who proceeded to highlight every page and, in general, make it appear dog-eared after only a few days. She still hasn't returned it, as she takes it every where she goes. I have to order another copy for myself because she keeps telling me that God will bless me "big-time" for giving her this book!

This book expresses how we(women) should choose to live our lives and not let 'outsiders' steer us in the wrong direction. This book gives you the resources, as well as the courage to live your life as productively as you can.
GOD'S LEADING LADY Sep 27, 2005
I really enjoyed the book God's Leading Lady. The reason I really enjoyed the book is because it is a self help book. It also showed women how to take center stage in their life. Iwould reccomend this book to all females. If they read God's Leading Lady it will help them to become one of God' Leading Lady.
A Platitude on Every Page Sep 13, 2004
I have loved listening to Bishop Jakes preach since he was still in his little church in West Virginia. I've watched his programs and listened to his tapes. I bought this book on his name alone. What a disappointment. God's Leading Lady is like one continuous pep rally. Rah! Rah! Rah! Sister, you can do it. Go! Go! Go! "Step out of the shadows and into the light". "Don't believe that you are alone no matter how desolate and bare your life's theater feels". "You must move beyond the Potter's shelf into the fire of greatness". "It is time you soar". "All the world is your stage--step up and allow yourself to shine".
I agree wholeheartedly with the message of this book. As women, we do put shackles on ourselves or allow others to do so. I don't think the author did enough to explain how to soar, just to have faith and do it. I couldn't get into the message or the point of the book because I was exhausted from wading through paragraph after paragraph of rhetoric and tedium. The book did get better as it went along, but not enough to warrant the money spent.
Discovering ourselves as leading ladies Jan 8, 2004
I believe that this book is a wonderful book and the a great work. I felt as though this book was designed for me for the emotional period that I was facing in my life and it gave me a new perspective as a Christian women. T.D. Jakes was able to explain how a lot of women feel today: striving for success but never really reaching it or feeling as though it was in vain because it feels as though they have a mediocre lifestyle. I have taken his advice in the book and formed some new year resolutions that I intend to follow for this year and years to come.
