So I picked this book up today for a Christmas Gift for my wife. But as a "Closet-Sheri-Dew-Reader" I started reading and I can't stop. Her understanding of Women's divine role in the Father's plan is obvious on every page. This isn't some cheesy apologetic approach to womanhood, this is the very doctrine of women that God would have us understand. The thoughts she expresses, with some of the most brilliant quotes from our latter-day leaders, is how my wife and mom view themselves. There is no inferiority complex when the full doctrine is in view. Sister Dew is brilliant in the defense of our unique and commendable and accomplished and mature view that womanhood is equal in the sight of God to that of the priesthood. A must read. This will be a book all of my kids will read before they leave the nest.
A great gift, but if you are like me...read it first!

I haven't finished this book yet but I'm enjoying it very much. I'm learning much about myself, my role in this world and am encouraged regarding my potential, that even in my "mature" years, I have potential to influence others, learn and grow in my understanding, still. This is a marvelous book for all women to remind us of all that we already do, can do and will be able to continue to do to make this world a better place. We often need a reminder of how much women are revered and appreciated for all the we do in and out of the gospel and church arena and this is certainly one. Husbands and wives could both benefit from reading this book.

Everyone should read this book. As I started reading it I was instantly drawn in, but for myself, in the third chapter where she discusses how to receive revelation was life-changing. I went back and read that part again and will refer to it often. The book is heavily laced with powerful scripture and words from the prophets. Well worth the read...
