Fierce Women: The Power of a Soft Warrior is marketed as a book that highlights the Biblical value of women, particularly those who are more “fierce” in their natures. To be honest, I wasn’t completely sure that I wanted to read this book. I am a rather strong-willed woman and have “fierce” tendencies. My parents always said of me (and still do): “she’s no wilting violet.” That’s pretty much the truth and I’ve spent most of my teen and all of my adult years trying to exercise self-discipline, primarily in the area of how I communicate with others. I’m always willing to submit myself to solid Biblical teaching in how I can both tame my tongue and curb my natural impatient tendencies. The true fact of the matter, if I am bluntly honest with myself, is that I like to play God. He really ought to check in with me every now and again to see how I would like things done and in what time frame. But He doesn’t because He doesn’t have to. I need to get over myself and submit myself to His will way more often than I do. It is a very sinful habit of mine.
