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 yet?how 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 live?the 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.

    Thank you so much John and Stasi for the awesome indepth series Captivating. I got to facilitate it in our "Ladies Tea" Group at our church. I felt very inadequate teaching the older ladies from our church since i was a divorcee. But, I was obedient to what God called me to do and the outcome was tremendous. The ladies opened up and shared things they has never shared before. The Holy Spirit moved and I know that it helped me discover the "heart" that God gave to women. Would strongly recommend this series to any Ladies Group, young or old.

    I also read "Wild at Heart". What and awesome book. Im now reading "Love and War".

    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.
