Book Review: Secrets of the Vine for Women

Let me just tell you that this book feels awesome... the cover is a weird super smooth texture!  It made the book even more pleasant.  I have not read The Secrets of the Vine book and will not run out to read it now that I have read this one.  I was happy that this book was short and sweet.  It didn't delve into any topics as much as I would have liked for it to, but it was a short book. 

The book revolves around John 15.  It explains better about our relationship with Jesus and God in regard to "the vine".  I, honestly, had never really thought about the fruit I produce.  Darlene Wilkinson touches on how we can simply, in our every day life, produce more fruit, which is glorifying and pleasing to God. 

She does offer a few examples as to how you can produce more fruit, while doing what you normally do.  She says God wants us to start where we are with what we have.  He placed us here in this year, in this house and in this season of life for a purpose. 

This book would probably be a great addition to The Secrets of the Vine, but it is also a great, short read for any woman who has not read the previous book.  There are also discussion/reflection questions in the back of the book, which would make this great for a small group or just for personal reflection.

I joined Waterbrook Multnomah so I could get free books!!  Yay for free!!  And double yay for new, quality books for free!!  I do not get any other compensation besides the book and agree to give my completely honest review.
