The Gentle Art of Discipling Women - Book Review



Book Description: 

Discipleship is a responsibility of every believer, yet many of us avoid doing it because we don’t know where to start. The Gentle Art of Discipling Women provides a framework for discipleship from the mentoring voice of a seasoned discipler. Dana Yeakley walks with you through the foundational principles of who you are in Christ and how you are uniquely equipped to pass along what He has taught you.

The book is divided into two parts:
  • Be a Disciple: Four foundational truths (We Are Becoming; We Are Forgiven; We Have Access; We Are Safe) strengthen our confidence so that we can pass along our faith.
  • Make a Disciple: Four questions (How Do We Create the Right Atmosphere? Who Do We Help? What Do We Share? How Does Discipling One-on-One Actually Work?) help us nurture a discipleship relationship.
The Gentle Art of Discipling Women will help each woman discover her unique gifting in discipleship through her relationship with God, her personality, and her story


My Review: 

We have access to God through this His love and through our prayers. We are working daily... reading our Bible, praying and showing others love through Christ's love for us... this book helps us to see what we need to learn to grow in our own spiritual walk with him. This is not a book you just read and then you are finished. Each chapter has scriptures for you to look up and study. There are questions to help you understand the key truths. There are suggestions to help you get started with your own discipling relationship. Reading this book I gained valuable insight... especially with goal setting. Overall, I felt very encouraged in reading "The Gentle Art of Discipling Women".. I would love to use this book as a group Bible study in the future.
