About the Authors:
As a busy mom and minister’s wife, Dena Dyer constantly loses things—but she’s holding onto her sanity (barely). Her favorite forms of therapy? Talking and laughing with her sons, date nights with her hubby, reading, cooking, and watching movies. Dena is thankful for her creative life, which is varied and full. That doesn’t mean it’s easy, though.
“Jesus truly is my strength when I am weak,” she says. “His love, mercy, and grace have been incredibly instrumental in my life. That’s why I’m so passionate about sharing Him with other people, however He allows me to.”
In between helping her boys with homework and shuttling kids to art and music lessons, she writes, speaks, and participates in the music and women’s ministries at Lakeside Baptist Church, where her husband serves as the Minister of Worship and Music.
Dena’s publishing credits include the upcoming Kregel release, Wounded Women of the Bible, and 5 other books: Let the Crows’ Feet and Laugh Lines Come!, Mothers of the Bible, two volumes in the Groovy Chicks’ Road Trip series, and Grace for the Race: Meditations for Busy Moms.
Her articles have appeared in Writer’s Digest, Woman’s World, HomeLife and many other magazines, and her tips have been published in Working Mother, Thriving Family, Redbook, Family Circle, Parenting, Nick Jr. and Scholastic Parent. She currently serves as a contributing author and Facebook editor with The High Calling (www.highcalling.org)

I received this book from The Book Club Network and authors in exchange for my honest opinion.
This is a book every woman should read. Have you been wounded? Maybe you have wounded someone else. Every women young, old, or in between can benefit from this book in one way or another.
Maybe you have already dealt with your wounds. I think this book is also a great resource to use to help others. I certainly wish I could get my hands on a crate of these books to pass out to women I know who could use it.
There were so many quotes in this book I loved, and wanted to share.
One of them was this:
"Love - whether reciprocated or not is never wasted because God is love!"How amazing is that.
"No matter how you're treated, someone else negativity has nothing to do with you and everything to do with them."
Tina and Dena both share some deeply moving stories of incidents that occurred in their lives. They also use many women from the Bible as examples . They cover categories ranging from depression, infertility, abuse, grief, and betrayal to gratitude, blessedness, adoration and hope for shattered hearts. They share a multitude of scripture and women's stories to give much food for thought. Some of the women mentioned may be women you have heard of, others may be someone new - Abigail, Jochabed, Hagar, Dinah, Jephthah's Daughter to name a few. They offer healing and hope to women who have suffered. That woman may be you, or may be someone you know.
I highly recommend this book! It is such an encouragement to women. There is even a study guide at the end.
