Woman Within: Discover the Woman God Made You to Be

by Vonette Bright

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Vonette Bright is on a mission with her new book, The Woman Within. That mission is to bring women together, to share the journey she has taken to discover God’s purpose for her life, and to encourage other women to embark on a journey of their own. This first book in a series of four provides the roadmap, the vehicle, and the fuel for the trip of a lifetime.

Vonette, along with her late husband, Dr. Bill Bright, founded Campus Crusade for Christ more than half a century ago. She grew from a young wife and mother, grappling with an uncertain and doubting spirit, into a confident, joyous and fulfilled woman eager to guide other women toward a life of purpose. “My heart’s desire is to see women of faith connecting, loving, caring, serving, and supporting each other with such genuine love that women who do not know Christ will be drawn to those who do and will want to meet Him”.

The Woman Within is organized into four distinct parts: Admitting Our Need -- what does having it all really mean?; Achieving His Grace -- being imperfect is okay; Acquiring Our Skills -- the power of prayer; and Achieving His Purpose -- putting it all together. Each part is enriched with poignant stories from Vonette’s own life, as well as from others who have crossed her path at one time or another along the way.

A great deal of thought-provoking and insightful information is packaged into a small book that will easily slip into a purse, carry-on tote, or diaper bag for women who are, by their very nature, rarely idle. This book is ideal for women who are overwhelmed with too much to accomplish in too little time, and for those striving to be good enough, skilled enough, and worthy enough to even try. Vonette provides hope and guidance with The Woman Within to get untangled from a self-defeating life and to “discover the woman God made you to be.” -- Leslie Cook, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

You are a new woman in Christ! But does the life you live reflect it? Vonette Bright knows the secret to discovering the joy of the "Woman Within" you... Her "secret" is not really a secret all at but a result of uncovering the woman who, through the power of the Holy Spirit, God created her to be.

Vonette will help you unleash the power and joy of a Spirit-filled life as she shares her lifelong journey--from a self-doubting young wife and mother to a woman influenced, nurtured, and guided by the Holy Spirit. Designed as a Bible study compliment to The Sister Circle, The Woman Within teaches that living a life characterized by joy, energy, and purpose is to live with total abandon to the Holy Spirit, despite the burdensome stressors of life.

Unleash the woman within and find satisfaction in being exactly who God created you to be.
