Description

These days, society tells women they can buy self-care in a store or cross it off a to-do list.

In this 40-day devotional, Tiffany Bluhm invites women into a deeper, more meaningful understanding of self-care that includes faith, rest, joy, lament, collaboration, and empowerment. Bluhm shows how self-care is critical to women's spiritual growth and empowerment to make a difference in the world.

The Women We've Been Waiting For weaves together Scripture, liturgies, and stories of historical figures to show women that caring for themselves is the first step toward renewing their own souls and tackling the social problems they care most about. Bluhm draws from her own writing as well as guest contributions from a diverse group of ministers, authors, and activists. Each devotion invites readers to learn from women who have managed tension, survived the seemingly impossible, and embodied a resilient faith.

Readers will emerge from their 40-day journey with a more vibrant spirituality to fuel them in their everyday lives.

The cover got my attention but the content kept it! I reallllyy enjoyed this devotional by Tiffany.
One word to sum up my feelings about this book is refreshing! In a world full of mundane and repetitive women devotional, this one was breath of fresh air. Such rich text from the contributing authors, I plan to research each one and learn about their work! I also really like the "questions to ponder" section at the end of each chapter; they make great journal prompts.
Good writers always credit the work they used, and I really enjoyed the notes section of the book. Such great research journals and articles that I plan to dig through and read! Tiffany did extensive research on this book and it shows!

This was my first ever devotional and after completing it by reading the ebook, I immediately pre-ordered the hard copy. This had amazing information on history, not only biblical history, but history of women throughout the centuries who made difference and struggled. This was an amazing devotional and I cannot wait to restart it when the hard copy arrives.
