"Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace."--Ephesians 4:3

Friends let you down. A romance turns sour. Children rebel. A church is divided. You feel like you don't measure up. Is there really hope for living at peace?

Yes! Peacemaking Women offers a meaningful, lasting message to lead you out of conflict and into a state of peace where you can live as a representative of Christ to other women as well as to unbelievers. With personal stories and advice that is firmly rooted in Scripture, the authors guide you to peace with God, peaceful relationships with others, and genuine peace within.

"This book tells the truth. The authors know the struggles of women, and they offer hope rooted in God's Word to transform conflict into grace in lives, families, churches, and communities."--Charles Colson, founder, Prison Fellowship

"If I could put one book in the hands of every Christian woman, in addition to the Bible, it would be this one. It is a delight to read and a joy to ponder."--Laura Mae Gardner, former international vice president, Wycliffe Bible Translators International

"This bold and compelling book is a tour de force in offering a pathway for rebuilding broken relationships."--Dan B. Allender, Ph.D., president, Mars Hill Graduate School; author, The Wounded Heart

"Peacemaking Women is not just for women and is not just about peacemaking. This powerfully honest book is about the peace the gospel brings every heart that applies the truths of the gospel to past wounds and present brokenness."--Bryan Chapell, president, Covenant Theological Seminary
