The Heart of a Woman

The mystery of the feminine heart was meant to be a good thing. A source of joy. Yet it has become a source of shame- women almost universally feel that they are 'too much' or 'not what they should be .' ...and so we have missed the treasure that is the heart of a woman, missed the richness femininity was meant to bring to our lives, missed the way it speaks to us of the heart of God. ...Femininity cannot be prescribed in a formula...and yet, there is an essence that God has given to every woman. We share something deep and true, down in our hearts...God has set within you a femininity that is powerful and tender, fierce and alluring. No doubt it has been misunderstood. Surely it has been assaulted. But it is there, your true heart, and it is worth recovering. You are captivating.

~ John &I Stasi Eldridge, introduction to Captivating
