    As a young girl, I thought the board game Life laid out the basic script for adult life. The path allowed me to drive my little plastic car from college to a career, then on to marriage and eventually to home ownership in just that orderly sequence. In actuality, that is pretty much th...

    Abigail Dodds has written a book called (A)Typical Woman and I honestly wasn?t sure what I was going to think about it. When I finally sat down with it, I ended up reading the first 150 pages in the first day, highlighting much of it. This is a book that calls Christian Women, fro...

    May you find your deepest delight in being what He made you and being found in the One who saved you. There is more joy to unearth and more good to unleash and more comfort to take hold in the Savior who dwells inside you than this finite fallen world can contain. May you, no matter yo...

    This book is very well-written and filled with biblical references and practical application to all areas of womanhood- singleness, motherhood, marriage, weakness, strength, etc. The author?s experiences with suffering add so much credibility to her counsel. I will make this an annua...

    According to popular wisdom, ten thousand hours of deliberate practice are required for excellence in any field. After 20 years of homeschooling, 25 years of mothering, and 30 years of gardening and canning, I?m doing the math and wondering if mastery is even a possibility in any of ...

    This is the best book I have read on biblical womanhood. I will likely read it again. Abigail is a rare gem. I have enjoyed being mentored by her from afar even though we don?t know each other personally. I love the frankness and unapologetic way she encourages us. That she does it w...

    Christian women are bombarded every day by messages that tell them they are less than they are. Less valuable, less loved, less free, less whole, less called. Women need to hear the message that they are free, whole and called in Christ. Abigail Dodds brings clarity to women's true ide...

    I love the message of this book. It is clear. It is based in the gospel. It is needed in our day. The writing is easy to follow and concise. The chapters are short and the discussion questions at the end are great for facilitating self-reflection and group discussion. What the book is ...

    Phenomenal! As a pastor, I am regularly faced with the challenge of upholding the glories of biblical womanhood without neglecting the distinctions between men and women, even as God created them BOTH in His image. Abigail has been a great help to me in this. She does an amazing job of...

    I feel like I?ve been waiting YEARS for this book, and it is the single best book I?ve read on being a Christian and being a woman. (A) Typical Woman is a fulsome, thoughtful, nuanced but not neutral look at womanhood, not obsessive with rules or codes or acceptable manifestations ...

    This book was excellent! It is rare for me to find a nonfiction book that is difficult to put down but this certainly was and I am thankful to have read it. My favorite message from the book is that our femininity is not separate from our humanity but is uniquely intertwined with every...

    This was a surprisingly short, and, not surprsingly, meaty read. I've gotten to know Abigail Dodd's writing mostly through her articles on the Christian blog Desiring God. She frequently writes there on the topic of womanhood and how it relates to our identity in Christ. The book is...
