A woman of self-esteem, says Marjorie Kimbrough, values her own worth. She is willing to risk failure since she knows she is worthy as a person and worthy to give praise to God. She knows God will always welcome her praise because God values her. This knowledge increases her self-esteem. She is God's child; she is worthy; she can do great things because she is strengthened by her love of self and her love of and devotion to God.
Marjorie Kimbrough examines women of the Bible who, in her view, exhibit positive self-esteem. To inspire today's Christian women, Kimbrough shows how many biblical women were able to reach beyound the limits of their environment to touch the hand of God. She offers examples of women who defined what they would consider success in the situation in which they found themselves, who devised a plan of action, and who moved forward in faith--the formula Kimbrough set forth in her book Beyound Limitations.
Compact and pactical but very much packed with good information. Easy to read and retain. I enjoy reading about women and couples in scripture and this book was a delight to add to the quiver. :)
"He knew that God could take whatever was offered in faith and use it, no matter how meager it might be, to cause a miracle." (page 56)
"Some might call her the woman who married the wrong man, but it was while she was in that bad marriage that she discovered herself to be a woman of tremendous self-esteem. Being forced to the forefront, she was able to help one of God's most powerful servants discover his mission and ministry." (page 45)
