The 500 Hats (Review)
Well, I am one of those people - I love to read books written by other women with tons of scripture and wisdom packed in. I have read "The 500 Hats of a Modern-Day Woman" by Joyce Ellis and I can't say enough great stuff about it. This lady definitely understands what it means to be a wife, a mother, a cook, a maid, a chauffeur, a launderer, a nurse, a counselor... and many other roles, all rolled up into one person! Being a woman is a tough job, although it is very rewarding.
I just loved reading this book. It was down-to-earth and kept my attention. I found myself nodding my head with so many things throughout the book. I like how Ellis did speak about the Proverbs 31 woman but she brought so many other characteristics from scripture into the book. I loved the quotes from real women at the beginning of chapters. I enjoyed the reflection questions and scripture at the end of chapters. It made the chapter really tie together and made me do some searching on my own. And she gives you tons of other resources throughout the book as well.
I highly recommend this book if you are of the female gender. I think everyone should read it. If only just to realize you are not alone in this journey that can sometimes feel so lonely.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity and Encourage for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
