Teaser Tuesday: The Life Ready Woman by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World
          There is nothing more scripturally or biologically obvious than that women are designed with a unique ability to nurture life. This includes both physical life through childbirth and the more intangible emotional and spiritual life of those around them. I (Shaunti) fought against this idea for years. I knew our bodies were designed to produce children, but beyond that I didn't think we had any special purpose in that direction that is any different from men. I had never really absorbed how much both the Bible and science have to say about this.
But as I studied the Bible more and as I was exposed to scientific evidence that confirmed what I saw clearly in God's Word, it was clear: women do have some unique gifts and design in this area. - pg. 79, The Life Ready Woman: Thriving in a Do-It-All World by Shaunti Feldhahn and Robert Lewis
