Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams.Â She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play. They are the secret to the feminine heart.Â And yet - how many women do you know who ever find that life? As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried.Â She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the beauty in any tale.Â Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores, and errands, striving to be the women they "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christian women add to the pressure. "Do these 10 things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul.Â But her heart is still there. Sometimes when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live - the life she dreamed of as a little girl.Â The message of Captivating is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman.Â A woman who is truly captivating.

God has dreams - just for you. Becoming Myself is a hope-filled audiobook for anyone who wonders if her life will ever change - if she will ever change. In Stasi Eldredgeâs most intimate work yet, she shares her own struggles with self-worth, addiction, and her past as she shows listeners how God is faithfully bringing us to a life of freedom and wholeness. God desires to restore us, and he is able to restore us - the real us. As he heals our inner life he calls us to "rise to the occasion" of our lives. The most important journey any woman can take is the one into becoming her true self through the love of God. Itâs a beautiful paradox: The more Godâs you become, the more yourself you become - the woman he had in mind when he thought of you before the creation of the world.

Best-selling author Stasi Eldredge shows us how to choose a joy that stands against the tides of life's real and often overwhelming pain.Â Defiant JoyÂ will help you: get off the emotional roller coaster and experience daily joy; learn how to have a posture of holy defiance when circumstances threaten to weigh down your soul;Â and find new perspectives on painful circumstances and see how God sometimes interferes with your life to heal and transform you. We are called to live.Â And, miraculously, to live with joy. We all spend a lot of energy reaching for happiness, but we are never quite able to hang on to it. Real life happens, and our circumstances take us on an emotional roller-coaster ride. So the Bibleâs call to âbe joyful alwaysâ sounds almost crazy - and out of reach. But it doesnât have to be. Joy is meant to be ours, a joy that is defiant in the face of this broken world. This joy is not simply happiness on steroids; itâs the unyielding belief that sorrow and loss do not have the final say. Itâs the stubborn determination to be present to whatever may come and to interpret both goodness and grief by the light of heaven. InÂ Defiant Joy, Stasi Eldredge invites us with courage, candor, and tender vulnerability to a place beyond sadness or happiness. She shows us how to maintain a posture of holy defiance that neither denies nor diminishes our pain but dares to live with expectant, unwavering hope.Â
