A Woman's Secret for Confident Living

by Karol Ladd

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Karol Ladd’s A Woman’s Secret for Confident Living truly pinpoints what women search for anywhere and everywhere. Confidence is not something to be taken lightly and, as Ladd explains throughout the book, it is a huge part of being a godly woman. Ladd starts by giving her readers a deeper understanding of how important personal philosophy and prayer are to confident living. Through intelligent and resourceful ideas, Ladd gives readers a concrete grasp on the truth of scripture, such us Colossians 1:22, “But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation.”

Each chapter ends with a section called “Confident Steps,” in which Ladd gives readers four chances to become involved and reflect on the things that were discussed in the pages before. It includes “Additional Scripture Reading;” “Battle for the Truth,” in which there is a lie most Christian’s believe and the truth that upsets that lie; “Choices,” which include steps, advice, and truth the reader can take away; and “Deliberate Plans,” in which the reader is challenged to take this knowledge in extra step and apply it in a specific way.

Ladd provides passages from the book of Colossians, focusing on the words Paul spoke to the church of Colossae. She unravels these short four chapters with specific details for what each woman should see in herself and in God. Ladd helps paint a vivid picture of what God looks like through Christ by providing anecdotes and paragraphs upon paragraphs of wise words and truth.

With a highlighter and pen in hand, the reader will not go a single page without something wonderful to learn from the insights of Karol Ladd. From her humor to her ability to make God’s truth evident in each page, this book provides the wisdom of genuine confident living. – Katie Schlemmer,
