Endorsements  

“Barbara Hughes shares both God’s Word and the joy of living it. In her own warm voice, she invites women to believe and to adorn the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s an invitation not to a list of abstract disciplines, but to the grace of God that trains us in all the layers of real life.” — Kathleen B. Nielson, Director of Women’s Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition

Disciplines of a Godly Woman is not a legalistic ten-step plan or checklist. Rather it is Titus 2:3–5 in action, as Barbara Hughes becomes our sister, mother and grandmother in the Lord, challenging us to trust and honor God in the whole of life. After a lifetime in pastoral ministry and family life, Barbara knows the challenges we face as sinners living in a world crowded with ideas and pressures. She also knows that God’s Word provides the wisdom we need and the cross of Christ provides the grace we need. At a time when many younger women are seeking mentors, and many older women feel ill-equipped for the task, this book is a wise and loving answer to both.” — Claire Smith, Bible teacher and author, God’s Good Design: What the Bible Really Says about Men and Women

“As Christian women we long to have our lives give glory to God. This wise book walks us through the practical disciplines of being a woman who lives under God’s authority. I highly recommend it.” — Margaret Grudem, Scottsdale, Arizona
