It has been 17 years since this book has challenged mature Christian women to mentor younger wives and mothers. This expanded version includes valuable Appendices that will give the mentoring relationship eternal significance. It is still popular as an individual study or in small groups.
Woman to Woman takes the outline given in Titus 2:3-5 and searches Scripture to find specific direction and content for a guide to discipleship for women. The purpose of the book is to provide a resource for women who desire to minister to others. It is designed to encourage and equip women to speak truth to those who are younger; breaking through barriers in order to deal with difficult questions women face in the 21st century. Rather than offering another set of answers from one woman's perspective, this study takes each woman to passages of Scripture, helping her discover what God is saying to her personally, without skirting the deeper issues. Although the study is ideal for group discussions, it can easily be adapted to individual study use or one-on-one mentoring. The first four chapters look at the four qualifications for women in ministry: a priestly lifestyle, a commitment to confidentiality, freedom from addictions and an appreciation for beauty and the ability to teach it. Younger women may take this study to learn what they are to seek in an older woman mentor and be better prepared to minister to others. Each of the remaining chapters takes one of the topics Paul identifies as important for women and seeks to develop a biblical foundation for understanding and training.
"Woman of Grace" is a mentoring program designed to bring groups of older women alongside younger women to teach marriage, mothering, and keeping the home. Many women today did not grow up in Christian homes and never had a good role model to follow as they transitioned from single life to marriage. Young wives need help both spiritually and practically for their roles in life. This complete curriculum is ideal for women's ministry, small groups, or Bible studies. "Woman of Grace" is a ready-made plan to help you begin. It includes seven biblical lessons about womanhood, questions and answers for weekly homework, over 30 recipes for the group gatherings, and a bonus "Called to Mentor" manual to train your mentors.

"She is a godly woman." "True love waits." Are these phrases and many others about gender truly based in scripture, or based on dusty, outdated stereotypes? And how do these perceptions repress people, especially women, from fully expressing their faith? If Eve Only Knew offers a fresh perspective on gender and the Bible, destroying trumped-up, captive-creating messages with the freeing proclamation grounded in Jesus' ministry and found everywhere in scripture: that we are all created in God's image, and by relying on our gifts and skills--rather than on gender-designed roles--we become all God means for us to be.

Susan Hunt unveils how to put that model into action with stories of biblical and contemporary women who have responded to God's call, as well as page after page of personal encouragement, practical insight, and ministry-tested how-to's. Through this wisdom-packed book, churches, groups, and individuals will be equipped to reach across generational lines-and inspired to experience the blessing of nurturing, godly relationships so that every Christian woman may flourish in her faith.
