A Woman Who Reflects the Heart of Jesus: 30 Days to Christlike Character by Elizabeth George shares 30 different characteristics that Jesus exemplifies and demonstrates along with ways we can apply them to our lives. Who, among followers of Jesus, does not desire to know Him more and understand Him better and in doing that cultivate a life more like His?
True to her previous writings, George uses scriptures and Biblical stories as well as personal antidotes to support her ideas. I appreciate that she shares real life with us and not just her shining moments. Each chapter has a section that shows us how Jesus life reveals the character trait of that chapter, questions and ponderings to reflect upon your heart, and a prayer. There are also added stories depending on the topic and often simple things you can work on to build your character. Character traits such as patience, thankfulness, focus, and discipline are developed.
I recommend A Woman Who Reflects the Heart of Jesus to women who want to do a character study, need a short devotional book to do alone or with friends, and anyone who has yet to read Elizabeth George. After having read many of her books over the years, I imagine that if I had the opportunity to sit down with her for tea, she would be a wealth of spiritual knowledge and a gentle heart. God has certainly gifted her as a writer who draws hearts toward Him.
