For years, I have wanted to write a book about womanhood, but due to the demands of my family, church and work, kept putting it off. That recently changed when, with the help and encouragement of some friends, I finally put together a book proposal. Last year, I signed a contract with Thomas Nelson. Now, about a year later, the book is finally done!
My book is about redeeming the feminine soul — and discovering God’s design for womanhood, which defies both “fundamentalist caricature” and the “feminist ideal.”
The description at Amazon explains the book well. It is about redeeming the feminine soul — and discovering God’s design for womanhood, which defies both “fundamentalist caricature” and the “feminist ideal.” But it’s also about my personal journey of discovery. Like many Christian women, I struggled to understand what it means to be a woman. And God led me through some very difficult and breaking experiences, forcing me to discard old notions and be open to new ones.
I actually tried to write around some of those difficult personal experiences. Until now, I have shared them only with my husband and a few very trusted friends. But one morning, I woke up with a very clear impression from God that I was supposed to tell them. So we made an agreement. I’d open up and tell the stories if God would give me the words to do so, and use them to help others. I believe He was faithful, and I hope after reading the book, you think so too.
Though the book doesn’t release until September, you can pre-order it now at Amazon for 33% off the list price! I’m also booking speaking engagements for the Fall now too. So, if you’re looking for a speaker for your church, women’s retreat, or special event, please visit my speaker page. I’d love to talk with you about that. Thanks so much for following me and for encouraging me in my work. I couldn’t have done this without you either!
Description: “Redeeming the Feminine Soul”
Popular national radio host Julie Roys rejects both fundamentalist caricature and feminist distortion to reveal God’s amazingly relevant and compelling vision for women, showing them how to redeem their feminine souls and become all God designed them to be.
Christian women today feel torn between the demands of motherhood, career, and ministry—and by a church that gives them conflicting ideas of what it means to be a woman.
In Redeeming the Feminine Soul: God’s Surprising Vision for Womanhood, popular national radio host Julie Roys reveals the stunning truth that no one else is talking about: women are destroying themselves. Internalizing society’s devaluation of the feminine, some women are killing their own natural impulses to pursue a feminist ideal that bears no relation to God’s good design. Other women struggle to conform to a fundamentalist, feminine caricature, which requires denying their full humanity and gifting.
Defying both feminists and fundamentalists, Julie Roys reveals God’s true, affirming, and compelling vision for women, showing them how to reclaim what is uniquely feminine, and become healthy, balanced women of God.
