Publisher's Description

Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play. They are the secret to the feminine heart.

And yetⷕhow many women do you know who ever find that life? As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried. She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the Beauty in any tale.

Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores, and errands, striving to be the women they "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christen women add to the pressure. "Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul.

But her heart is still there. Sometimes when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to liveⷕthe life she dreamed of as a little girl.

The message of Captivating is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.

    I received this book as a gift, and was greatly anticipating what it would be like. I had seen it advertised in CBD, and had been wanting to look into it. I began reading it, and found myself needing to read between the lines of the writing in order to justify some of the statements (such as referring to the Proverbs 31 woman as an 'infamous icon' - see page 6).

    I do not care for the melodramatic writing style or the frequent references to popular movies and celebrities (particularly the mention of having fantasies about Daniel Day-Lewis looking deep into your eyes - creepy). They ramble about fantasy movie examples and how they somehow relate to our feelings and/or purpose.

    It is very repetitive and has some concerning ideas about how important we women are (the crowning moment in creation and so on). The glorification of women makes me uncomfortable. I think more emphasis of Christ working in us to create beauty, rather than the concept of "The essence of a woman is Beauty. She is meant to be the incarnation-our experience in human form-of a Captivating God" would be a major improvement.

    Last thing: wish I could tell who was writing when.

    Needs more scriptural backup to add weight to an otherwise fluffy, sentimental book. Over-rated.

    Overall, I must say that this is a fantastic book. It's written in an interesting way which holds your attention, it addresses some basic needs and it has some unusual insights and advice. I am going to recommend it to our daughters, I believe that each one will find things in it to help them in their individual lives.

    I gave it an overall 5 but a 4.5 would be more accurate. I encountered 2 negatives:
    1)Maybe it's there and I missed it but the basic detail of sin is not addressed. I don't think it's just my opinion but, rather, that of God's, that this needs to be taken care of before ANY relationship, with God or man, can go forward!
    2)I frequently did not know who was writing-John or Stasi. At times that was a rather frustrating thing as I considered the angle or attitude of who was saying what. And at one point, one sentence was written by him and the next sentence by her. Maybe it's just me, but it was a huge peeve! Perhaps that is a detail which could be corrected if another edition is published.

    I think that every woman from 16 and above should read this book because it not only gives you insight to things that may be effecting you from your past and how to understand it better. It also gives you information on things that will come in your future and prepare you to handle in a Godly manner.

    The spiritual benefits of this book are immeasurable. I learned so much about what God thinks of me. This has changed my entire view of myself and strengthened my relationship with christ. It tears down so many lies that the devil has made society to believe about the significance of femininity & creation of woman. It definitely challenges the deep rooted negative messages and opens/mends the heart.

    Very honoring to the godly design of the woman

    This is the most honoring book I have ever read regarding God's unique design and purpose of women. It explained that the yearnings I have as a woman, wanting to be pursued, protected, loved, yet strong and capable, are godly. Women were not intended to be lesser, but rather have a complimentary function, one in which we work together, using the unique abilities and perspective we were designed to have, to accomplish God's purposes. I always knew that women were as important to God's plan as men but it isn't really lived in the church as such. I think this book goes a long way in bringing greater understanding to the beautiful godly design of the woman and how she fits with the beautiful and godly design of the man. Much of what we have seen lived in the church is still from the fallen perspective, man ruling over the woman, verses them both having dominion as described before the fall. Jesus Christ has restored our relationship with God. It is time we share this dominion again as God intended, doing this together as God has uniquely designed us to.
