Perfect for book groups or private study, Virtuous walks through fourteen biblical virtues to help women of all ages actively pursue fruitfulness in the knowledge of Christ.
This book highlights what the Bible has to say about a Christian woman's highest duty, what it looks like to be a leading woman in one's community, and what it means to pursue virtue when everyone else thinks it's no longer important (all of which together are no small challenge, when we think about it—but of course, we have the Holy Spirit to do all things through Christ). This encouraging little book includes application questions and assignments which should both challenge individuals and give groups much food for thought.

From the Book:
"Feminine virtue includes a toughness that we may not normally associate with it. Boaz told Ruth, 'All the people of my town know that you are a virtuous woman' (Ruth 3:11). This word 'virtuous' is the feminine equivalent of a Hebrew phrase translated 'man of great wealth' (Geneva Study Bible). In other words, a woman with this kind of reputation has influence and moral authority; she has standing in her community. She is a woman of stature. We might think of some of the 'leading women' of the community referred to in Acts 17:4, who 'joined Paul and Silas.' And Proverbs 12:4 says that 'An excellent wife is the crown of her husband.' An 'excellent wife' is translated literally as 'a wife of valor.' So I think we can safely say that all virtue must include a manly kind of courage. Women would do well to think of themselves in this way, rather than assuming that a virtuous woman is a retiring, Victorian stereotype who shrinks away from getting her hands dirty." -From the book

Virtuous: A Study for Ladies of Every Age
Nancy is clear, to the point, and packs a punch with elegance. I love her books and am so thankful for her common sense wisdom!
My wife has enjoyed it!
I love how applicable every chapter was! It is definitely a book I will keep coming back to and recommend for women of all ages!
On another note, this book is simple and straight forward. You can make it as deep or shallow as you choose when answering the questions in each chapter. So I challenge you, prayer through and contemplate. This study can be very fruitful if you allow it to be.
My wife loved it and is now reading it to my daughters. Thank you!
This is an easy, quick read, but it is packed with thoughtful exhortation and encouragement for any woman who wants to live a godly life. The questions at the end of each chapter are thought-provoking and could generate good discussion. It would be great for a teen study, yet I am an empty nester and still gleaned much from it. I will refer back to it often!
